The SOC Degree Network System (SOCAD, SOCNAV, SOCMAR and SOCCOAST) is a group of degree-granting colleges and universities that help servicemembers and their family members complete college degrees by adopting military-friendly policies, such as reduced residency requirements, flexible transfer policies and acceptance of non-traditional credit. When students are transferred to new duty stations, they may continue to take courses at their home college if online, or take courses in SOC DNS Course Categories from other Degree Network System colleges, as well as acquire credit for further military experience and CLEP or DSST examinations. Credits can then be transferred back to the home college for the eventual awarding of a degree once all academic requirements are met.
