    Military Guide

    The ACE Military Guide presents ACE recommendations for formal courses and occupations offered by all branches of the military. All recommendations are based on ACE reviews conducted by college and university faculty members who are actively teaching in the areas they review. New courses and occupations are continually being evaluated by ACE, and these entries are added on a daily basis. The Guide includes all evaluated courses and occupations from 1954 to the present.

  • Academic Research on Military-Connected Students

    ACE has conducted empirical research on how student veterans and other military-connected individuals access and succeed in higher education. This research helps colleges and universities develop appropriate policies and practices to serve these students.
