Understanding the Joint Services Transcript

About the JST

​​​​​​​​​​ACE provides quality assurance and policy guidance for the Joint Services Transcript (JST) used by the 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 and applicable ACE credit recommendations. ACE recommendations, and the military training and occupation exhibits they are based upon, are catalogued in the ACE Military Guide.

For a breakdown of the information contained in the sections and notation on the JST, this brochure (1.3 MB PDF) explains the documentation in detail.
