Understanding credit hours required

The amount of veteran or dependent educational allowance varies according to the chapter eligibility. Standard credit load requirements for determining rate-of-payment are:

  • Full time: 12 or more credit hours
  • 3/4 time: 9–11 credit hours
  • 1/2 time: 6–8 credit hours
  • Less than half time: 1–5 credit hours
  • Check with Military & Veteran Services for summer credit load requirements.

NMC Scholarships

NMC also offers a scholarship specifically for veterans. The Bobby L. and Karen J. Thompson Veterans Scholarship provides a $1,000 annual award to a student veteran enrolled in at least six credits. You can search our scholarship database for it and other potential scholarships.
