The Guaranteed-Transfer Networks are designed to maximize guaranteed transferability for as many major and major-related course requirements listed in degree programs as possible. Students complete degree requirements as they change locations during their military careers without loss or duplication of credit, or respond to other demands of a military career. A SOC Degree Network System Course Category Code is established whenever a group of institutions agrees to accept courses in transfer from each other that are comparable in content. All comparable courses that have been reviewed and accepted in transfer by Core member institutions in a particular Course Category are displayed in the Transferability Tables under that Code. Core member institutions sharing the same SOC DNS Course Category must accept each other’s courses in those categories in transfer without prior approval.
