Military Experience

Brass to Class Eligibility

The NCDPI Licensure Section has established rules according to G.S. 115C-302.3(a) for awarding credit for salary purposes to principals, assistant principals and teachers who served in the Armed Forces of the United States; have retired or who have received an Honorable Discharge.

The policy includes the following provisions:
  1. One full year of experience credit shall be awarded for each year of full-time relevant non-teaching work experience completed while on active military duty in the Armed Forces of the United States and earning a bachelor's degree.
  2. One full year of experience credit shall be awarded for each two years of full-time relevant non-teaching work experience completed while on active duty in the Armed Forces of the United States and before earning a bachelor's degree.
  3. One full year of experience credit shall be awarded for every two years of full-time instructional duties performed in an instructional setting while on active military duty in the Armed Forces of the United States, regardless of academic degree held while serving in instructional roles. This applies to military veterans initially employed by a NC LEA starting July 1, 2014. The experience must be verifiable on government issued service documents. This provision does not apply to JROTC instructors covered under a separate policy.
  4. One full year of experience credit shall be awarded for every two years of full-time service in a leadership role while on active military duty in the Armed Forces of the United State, regardless of academic degree held while serving in a leadership role. This applies to military veterans initially employed by a NC LEA starting July 1, 2014. Members eligible for this work experience credit are: commissioned officers, warrant officers, and non-commissioned officers. Junior enlisted members that have not completed formal military leadership training are excluded from eligibility for this credit. The experience must be verifiable on government issued service documents. This provision does not apply to JROTC instructors covered under a separate policy.
Non-Teaching Military Experience can be verified by using Form ME. There is also a $60 processing fee to have experience reviewed by the state. The fee can only be paid by VISA or MasterCard. The fee is non-refundable regardless if the experience is granted.
