Military Guide

Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services

ACE's Military Guide presents credit recommendations 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. 

Until October 1, 2012, the American Council on Education (ACE) evaluated training courses and recommended credit for courses offered by Department of Defense (DoD) schools.  After October 1, 2012, the DoD schools were not included in the Military Evaluation Program Contract, because the mission of the program is to support the evaluation of military-centric training and occupations.

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 a brief description of the ACE review process to each exhibit. (May 2015)
  • Redesigned the course exhibits so each version appears separately.  (February 2014)
  • Added a warning for overly large searches, so users don’t experience failed requests. (June 2014)
  • Added searches by Team Review Date for both courses and occupations to allow for easy identification of new additions. (August 2013)
  • Added methods of assessment to course review exhibits. (June 2013)

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.
