New Joint Services Transcript (JST)
The Army, Marine Corps, and Navy are now using a Joint Services Transcript (JST). The Coast Guard is also in the process of switching to the JST. The merge of AARTS, SMART, and CGI to a 'purple' transcript under a single name and program is a major accomplishment for the Military Voluntary Education Program and was enthusiastically promoted and supported by DANTES.
ACE hosted a series of webinars in March and April to help college and university users learn how to use the new JST. Topics included:
- Key transcript personnel and points-of-contact;
- The transcript process steps for service members, veterans, colleges and universities;
- Sample JST transcripts;
- The JST as a bridge to success; and
- Future initiatives.
