Military Credit

Military Experience

Transfer Admissions & Engagement accepts and will review Joint Services Transcripts.  Upon credit review by Transfer Admissions & Engagement and the department chair, any applicable credit will be added to the student’s record.  For more information regarding military credit visit the American Council on Education.  

To request a Joint Services Transcript please visit We are in the process of reviewing military training and experience from the Joint Services transcripts.  See what has currently been approved on our Course Equivalency Search (be sure to select your branch of the military).

Transfer Admissions & Engagement will award MSL 1101 (2 credit hours) for student veterans who have not met the General Education Wellness Literacy requirement.  An additional 6 hours of MSL credit may be added at the request of the student but we strongly suggest that students contact their academic advisor and financial aid to determine if these credits will benefit them (prior to requesting the additional 6 hours).  Finally, students who are interested in the Army Officer program (ROTC) should also contact the Department of Military Science & Leadership prior to requesting addition of these 6 credits. Any credit added to a student's record cannot be removed.

All applicants should submit documentation directly to the Office of Admissions during the application process.
