Graduate Military Service and Education

We accept many forms of professional military education, non-academic experience, and training. The American Council on Education (ACE) presents credit recommendations and detailed summaries for formal courses and occupations offered by all branches of the military. These credit recommendations appear on the servicemember’s Joint Services Transcript (JST) or Air University transcript.

Professional Military Education

ACE evaluates each version of a class and/or school and recommendations may vary from year to year. Military credit will be evaluated after all academic documents have been reviewed.
