Siena Heights University is a member of the Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (SOC) Consortium, a group of colleges and universities dedicated to providing educational opportunities to service members who need the flexibility of degree completion due to frequent moves from military deployments.
As a member of the organization, we support the Military Student Bill of Rights.
The SOC Consortium institutional members follow various criteria that benefit servicemembers including ease of transfer credit, acceptance of military training and experience, as well as acceptance of various nationally recognized exams (i.e. Dantes, CLEP, etc).
