SOC Organizational Umbrella

About SOC

Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (SOC) was created in 1972 to provide educational opportunities to servicemembers who have trouble completing college degrees because they frequently move from place to place.

SOC functions in cooperation with the Department of Defense, and Active and Reserve Components of the Military Services to expand and improve voluntary postsecondary education opportunities for servicemembers worldwide. SOC is funded by the Department of Defense (DoD) through a contract with the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU). The contract is managed for DoD by the Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES).
