How to Prepare for an ACE Military Review

December 30, 1899

 

​These instructions are designed to assist military training schoolhouses in planning for and hosting successful American Council on Education military reviews.

The purpose of an ACE military review is to bridge the gap between professional military education and postsecondary education.  Reviews are conducted by faculty members from colleges and universities who are currently teaching in the areas they are reviewing.  The review team analyzes materials, identifies learning outcomes, and recommends postsecondary credit based on its findings.

Military points of contact should contact ACE directly if they have questions that are not answered here.

ACE works under a contract from the Department of Defense that is administered by the Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES).

The results of ACE reviews appear in the Military Guide.

The Military Reviews Program

There are 3 different types of ACE reviews:

  1. For course reviews, the ACE review team examines the materials used to deliver the content of the course, including instructor materials, student materials, and assessments.
  2. For occupation reviews, the team examines the official documentation for the military occupational specialty (MOS) or rating and validates the occupation’s critical tasks and skills during interviews with service members.
  3. For virtual reviews, the review team examines the course materials (instructor materials, student materials, and assessments) on a secure SharePoint platform.  Virtual reviews are only used for courses.
