College and University Resources

December 30, 1899

 

ACE has long served as a bridge between the worlds of higher education and the military.  ACE's programs address both the evaluation of military courses and occupations for college credit and the acceptance of that credit by colleges and universities.  The goal is to help military and veteran learners complete their higher education degrees. 

College and University Partnerships (CUP) works to advance greater awareness, acceptance and application of credit for prior learning to increase postsecondary participation and completion.  CUP works with higher education institutions, employers and other key stakeholders to build partnerships, maximize collaborative efforts and increase effective pathways to postsecondary education.  Through webinars, technical services and special initiatives, CUP supports the work of higher education institutions and the learners they serve.

  • College and University Network - More than 2,300 colleges and universities rely on ACE credit recommendations presented in military transcripts. 
  • Regional liaisons - peer advisors to help craft new programs or refine existing ones.
  • Webinars - presentations by higher education practioners on such issues as mapping credit and evaluating prior learning.
  • Best Practices - highlight existing successful programs.
  • CEAI Resource Center - answers questions from learners about their transcripts, credit and prior learning experiences.

The Military Evaluations Program helps military service members and veterans gain access to higher education and attain their educational goals.  Under a contract from the U.S. Department of Defense, ACE reviews military training (courses) and experiences (occupations) with the goal of awarding equivalent college credits for those experiences. The results of those reviews appear in the Military Guide, which has more than 26,000 exhibits (23,000 courses and 3,400 occupations) dating back to 1954.

  • Search for military courses and occupations in the Military Guide and view ACE credit recommendations and supporting documentation.
  • View Frequently Asked Questions about awarding credit from the Military Guide.
  • Access information about military transcripts.
  • Understand the rigor of the review process for military training and occupations.
  • Reviews are conducted by college and university professors who are actively teaching in the subject areas they evaluate. Professors with at least five years of experience can sign up to serve as an ACE faculty evaluator.
