Transfer Guide: Understanding Your Military Transcript and ACE Credit Recommendations

December 30, 1899

 

Welcome to the Transfer Guide

Based on your military experiences and training, you may have college credit recommendations to apply toward a degree requirement or program of study. This guide is designed to help you obtain college credit for your military training and experience, whether you are an active duty service member or a veteran.

The first step in the process is to get a copy of your military transcript.  The next step is understanding your ACE credit recommendations. 

ACE Credit Recommendations

ACE works under a contract from the Department of Defense that is administered by the Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES)  to conduct and facilitate academic reviews of military courses and occupations.

An ACE military evaluation is a rigorous, hands-on process conducted by a team of teaching faculty from relevant academic disciplines, representing a diversity of colleges and universities. The team assesses and validates whether the courses or occupations have the appropriate content, scope, and rigor for college credit recommendations.

The results of ACE reviews appear on the ACE website on the Military Guide. For more information on using the Military Guide, see How to Use the Military Guide.

Your own credit recommendations will appear on your military transcript. Actual credit transferred is solely at the discretion of the college or university.
