​The ACE Military Guide supports academic institutions in awarding college credit to military-connected learners based on their military training and ​​occupations.

​Through a Departm​​ent of Defense (DoD​​) contract for the U.S. Armed Services, ACE is the sole source of information for courses and occupations evaluated for the military. The ACE Military Guide is a trusted technology platform containing courses and occupations evaluated from 1954 to present.

The Military Guide includes:​​​

  • A public Joint Services Transcript (JST) upload feature for service members and veterans ​
  • A streamlined format for course and occupation summaries​
  • Detailed information for all military courses and occupations evaluated by ACE
  • Multiple ways to search for courses and occu​pations—​by service, date, ACE ID or military course number, and course or occupation title
  • Evaluations conducted by college and university faculty members who are actively teaching in the areas they review​​

​ACE also evaluates courses offered by military-affiliated or defense institutions, government agencies, ​and joint DoD programs. These evaluations are found in the ACE National Guide, rather than the Military Guide. If you are seeking information about an evaluated course that does not appear in the Military Guide, please visit the Browse Organizations page of the ACE National Guide.​
