SOC Degree Network System

What is the SOC Degree Network System?

The SOC Degree Network System (DNS) is a subset of SOC Consortium member institutions selected by the military services to deliver specific Associate and Bachelor's degree programs to servicemembers and their families. Institutional members of the SOC DNS agree to special requirements and obligations that provide military students, their spouses and college-age children with opportunities to complete college degrees without suffering loss of academic credit due to changes of duty station.

How do I learn more about it?

SOC operates the 2- and 4-year Degree Network System for the Army (SOCAD), Navy (SOCNAV), Marine Corps (SOCMAR), and Coast Guard (SOCCOAST).  Refer to the SOC Degree Network System-2 and -4 Handbooks to view Associate and Bachelor's degree programs, location offerings, and college information.  An electronic version of the Handbook is posted on the SOC website, and on the SOCAD, SOCNAV, SOCMAR, and SOCCOAST home pages.
