Military Training Credit
What Is Military Training Credit?
A student may receive course credit where appropriate and equivalent courses are available for formal military training as recommended in A Guide to the Evaluation of Education Experiences in the Armed Service (ACE Guide), published by the American Council on Education (ACE).
How Can I Earn Military Training Credit?
To begin the process of receiving credit for formal military training and experience, it is recommended that you visit your veterans services coordinator at your local college first. Your coordinator can evaluate your transcripts and work with the local staff to ensure you receive appropriate credit.
To begin the process of having your transcript reviewed:
- Register at the Joint Services Transcript (JST) website for an account
- Click on the "Transcripts" link and view, print or save your unofficial transcript
- Click on "Official Transcript Request" and complete the form to have your official transcripts sent your college
Military service credit in career-technical areas that is over 10 years old and is to be applied toward graduation in the career-technical field must be approved by the appropriate division dean.
What is the Cost for Military Training Credit?
There is no cost to be awarded credit for training received in the military. Again, reach out to your local college veterans services coordinator to begin the process of determining your credit options.
