Military Programs

December 30, 1899


The American Council on Education's Military Programs department traces its origins back to the founding of ACE in 1918. Since 1945, ACE has provided a critical link between the U. S. Department of Defense and higher education, helping our nation’s military members and veterans gain access to higher education.

ACE reviews military training (courses) and experiences (occupations) and recommends equivalent college credits. ACE’s credit recommendations appear in the Military Guide and on military transcripts. The Military Guide has more than 25,000 exhibits (22,000 courses/3,300 occupations) covering recommendations made from 1954 to the present.
