ACE’s Online Military Guide to Credit Recommendations Has Enhanced Search Capabilities, New Look

January 28, 2013

 

​ACE’s Military Guide has a revamped search function and an updated look, making it easier to locate and review the thousands of courses the Council has evaluated and recommended for college credit since 1954.

The Military Guide is the sole source of information for all military courses and occupations evaluated by ACE, which makes credit recommendations based on reviews conducted by college and university faculty members actively teaching in the areas under consideration.

“ACE’s Military Guide has a whole new look and feel to it, designed to make it easier for service members, student veterans, institutions and employers alike to locate the military courses and occupations ACE has recommended for college credit,” said Michele Spires, ACE’s director of military programs.

The fastest way to search for military courses and military occupations from a service member’s or veteran’s transcript is to use a course’s ACE identification number, which can be found on the military transcripts that each branch of the service issues. But two other search functions can be used to search for courses or occupations if the ACE identification number is not known.

There also is a Frequently Asked Questions section that service members and veterans, higher education institutions and civilian employers will find helpful.
