A student’s military training, courses, and occupational specialty can all be considered for college credit. Military service credit in the occupational/technical areas (i.e., Engineering) may require approval by appropriate academic school dean prior to award.

In order to receive credit for your military training, a student must submit a military transcript prior to enrolling in classes.

NOTE: If only the DD214 is submitted, the student will receive one credit of HLT/PED. If you in enroll in a class and receive credit for that class, you may have to return VA benefits.

Each branch of the service has its own transcript request service. Depending on the branch in which you served, a transcript can be requested at the following locations:
