The 2020 Florida Legislature amended Section 1004.096, Florida Statutes (F.S.), to require the Board of Governors and the State Board of Education, in consultation with the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, to create a process for the uniform award of postsecondary credit or career education clock hours to certain servicemembers and veterans of the United States Armed Forces. See Chapter Law 2020-80, Postsecondary Education for Certain Military Personnel, for more information.
