Service Member and Veteran Resources

  • ACE has a long history, dating to its founding in 1918, of serving both military-connected students and the diverse array of colleges and universities that welcome these students as they undertake postsecondary education. ACE, in its role as higher education’s coordinating body and convener, provides colleges and universities with tools, resources and ways to share information about how to best serve this student population. ACE helps military and veteran students attain their postsecondary education goals through evaluations of military training and experiences and by facilitating the process of military transcripts.
