Transcripts and ACE Learning Evaluations

​​​​​​​The American Council on Education (ACE)​ supports both military and nonmilitary learners through transcripts and digital badges.

Transcripts for Military Learners 

ACE contributes data and provides quality assurance for military courses and occupations appearing on the Joint Services Transcript used by the United States Army, Marine Corps, Navy, and Coast Guard. More than 2,300 colleges and universities recognize these transcripts as official documentation of military training and experiences.

Transcripts for Nonmilitary Learners

The ACE Transcript, powered by Credly, includes credit recommendations and competencies that learners have earned through workplace training, exams, certifications, and alternative educational experiences. These transcripts incorporate digital credentials (badges) through Credly's digital credential platform, and they are designed to enable recipients to grant college credit, satisfy degree requirements, or verify skills required for a job opportunity.

Military Transcript Requests

The Joint Services Transcript is used by the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, and Coast Guard.

The Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) offers two-year associate of applied science degrees and provides transcripts to service members who have completed coursework from this curriculum. Air University is a professional military education system of the United States Air Force.
