SB 78


Service Member Licensure and Credit
Passed 02/23/2021


Arkansas SB 78, enacted in 2021 as Act 135, requires an Arkansas occupational licensing entity to accept relevant and applicable uniformed service education, training, or service-issued credential toward occupational licensure qualifications or requirements when considering an application for initial licensure of an individual who is a member of the armed forces or a veteran who makes an application within one year of leaving the service. Separately, the various Arkansas state college systems, by policy, individually provide academic credit for military education, training and experience as evaluated by American Council of Education (ACE) guidelines, based on submission of appropriate information to the registrar. Additional guidance can be provided by many institutions' veteran affairs offices.
