ACE's Military Guide presents credit recommendations and detailed summaries for formal courses and occupations offered by all branches of the military. These credit recommendations appear on the service member’s Joint Services Transcript (JST).
All recommendations are based on ACE reviews conducted by college and university faculty members who are actively teaching in the areas they review. The team assesses and validates whether the courses or occupations have the appropriate content, scope, and rigor for college credit recommendations.
The Military Guide includes all evaluated courses and occupations from 1954 to the present. New courses and occupations are continually being evaluated by ACE, and these entries are added on a daily basis. ACE only reviews courses and occupations selected by the military services.
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.
