How do I get college credits for my military service?
As an active-duty service member, Veteran, or member of the Reserves, you’ll need to request your transcript from your branch of service and share it with schools. Each school then decides how many credits they’ll accept.
Follow these instructions to request your transcript:
- For the Army, Navy, Marines, or Coast Guard, submit a request on the Joint Services Transcript (JST) website.
Submit an Official Transcript Request on the JST website
- For the Air Force or Space Force, submit a request on the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) website. You can pay for fast delivery if you’re trying to meet a deadline.
Submit a request on the CCAF website
Your transcript shows how many credits the American Council on Education (ACE) recommends for experiences like these:
- Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) training
- Army Advanced Individual Training (AIT)
- Military jobs
- Completed courses
Your transcript may also list courses or jobs not evaluated by ACE.
