The ACE Military Guide is the sole source of information for all military courses and occupations evaluated by ACE from 1954 to present.

In April 2021, ACE launched a modernized and improved version of the Military Guide, which includes these new features:

  • A streamlined format for course and occupation summaries
  • A public Joint Services Transcript (JST) upload feature for students
  • A dedicated application to support colleges and universities in making credit award decisions
  • Simplified and user-friendly navigation and design

The ACE Military Guide retains these hallmarks:

  • Information for all military courses and occupations evaluated by ACE
  • Multiple ways to search for courses and occupations—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
What's Your Role?
  • A postsecondary institution that wants to make collaborative and informed credit award decisions
  • A learner who hopes to apply military experience toward a degree
  • A military training provider who advises students and leadership on training programs evaluated for potential academic credit

Whatever your role, the ACE Military Guide is for you. Follow the path below that best meets your needs.
