Service Members Opportunity Colleges
Peninsula College is an institutional member of Service Members Opportunity Colleges (SOC), a group of more than 1,900 colleges and universities providing voluntary postsecondary education to members of the military throughout the world. As a SOC member, we recognize the unique nature of the military lifestyle and have committed to assessing the transfer of relevant course credits and crediting learning from appropriate military training and experiences. This includes a partnership with Army Recruiting Command Program ConAP that links new soldiers to college at the time of enlistment.
SOC has been developed jointly by educational representatives of each of the Armed Services, the Office of the Secretary of Defense, and a consortium of 15 leading national higher education associations. It is sponsored by the American Association of State Colleges and Universities and the American Association of Community Colleges.
