ACE's Military Guide presents credit recommendations and detailed summaries for formal courses and occupations offered by all branches of the military. These credit recommendations appear on the service member’s Joint Services Transcript (JST).
All recommendations are based on ACE reviews conducted by college and university faculty members who are actively teaching in the areas they review. The team assesses and validates whether the courses or occupations have the appropriate content, scope, and rigor for college credit recommendations.
The Military Guide includes all evaluated courses and occupations from 1954 to the present. New courses and occupations are continually being evaluated by ACE, and these entries are added on a daily basis. ACE only reviews courses and occupations selected by the military services.
The Military Guide Has Moved!
If you have any direct links to individual exhibits on your own site or in your email communications, they will need to be updated.
Please also update any old saved bookmarks in your browser to the new links.
