Military Review Resources

​​​​​Please note that the review timeline, process, and forms have changed under ACE’s new contract beginning April 1, 2020. The information below has been upd​​ated to reflect the new procedures. For assistance, please email​

​​​​​​​​​​​​​The ACE review schedule is established through collaboration between ACE, service program managers, and their military schoolhouses. Under the contract beginning April 1, 2020, training sites must submit a Training Center Self-Study Assessment Review Readiness Packet at lea​​st 90 days prior to a proposed review. The review is officially added to the schedule when the review readiness packet is approved. Instructions and sample and blank review readiness p​ackets are located below for reference.

Review Readiness Packet

The review readiness packet includes scheduling data, and course and/or occupation lists. Please reference the course eligibility criteria and documentation guidelines when completing the form. Military schoolhouse representatives must send the packet and course planning documents to the service program manager for validation before submitting to

The service program manager and ACE will analyze the review readiness packet and determine the level of readiness and review type. This analysis is based on criteria such as:

  • Electronic availability of course materials
  • Ability to access the virtual review platform
  • Point of contact (POC) availability
  • Course count/academic hour average
  • Content areas covered
  • Occupation count
  • Virtual capability for occupation interviews

Please note that the new contract strongly encourages virtual reviews.

Review readiness levels are defined in the following way: 

  • Level 1not eligible for virtual reviews, but will be considered for remediation and/or onsite reviews (e.g., course materials are not in digital formats; schoolhouse cannot access the virtual review platform; course count and/or academic hour average are too large for a virtual review)
  • Level 2not eligible for virtual reviews until the identified areas are remedied (e.g., course materials in partial digital formats, schoolhouse cannot access the virtual review platform)
  • Level 3ready for a virtual review (e.g., course materials available in digital formats; schoolhouse can access virtual review platform; course count fits virtual review guidelines)
