ACE's Military Guide presents credit 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.
ACE works closely with a variety of stakeholders who use the Military Guide to enhance the utility of the data. Here are some examples of recent changes:
Added searches by academic credit subject area and level to enhance course articulation efforts. For example, a search on “criminal justice” will result in exhibits containing that term in both the subject area credit recommendation and related competencies section. Users may also refine based upon level of credit. (October 2012)
Added methods of assessment to course review exhibits. (June 2013)
Added searches by Team Review Date for both courses and occupations to allow for easy identification of new additions. (August 2013)
Added a warning for overly large searches, so users don’t experience failed requests. (June 2014)
New courses and occupations are continually being evaluated by ACE, and these entries are added on a daily basis.
The Military Guide includes all evaluated courses and occupations from 1954 to the present and is updated daily at 0200 ET.
