How Can I Convert Military Training Into College Credits?

Q: What website lets you convert military training into college credits?

A: The only website I’m aware of is the American Council on Education’s (ACE) Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Forces. The ACE has went through every military job, grade and course and has figured out what each are worth. I think you would be surprised how many credits you will get for your military experience and training.

Their website has two methods of searching. One way you can input by grade, such as Army enlisted. The other way you can search by military education course. In either case, you will get a listing of how many credits apply to upper division or lower division and in what field.

Note that this is strictly a planning guide, as institutions have the final say as to what will transfer and for how many credits. However, it should be close as most of the institutions of higher learning use the ACE’s guide when converting credits to a transcript.

Also, don’t overlook using DANTES to get some credits just for taking and passing the tests. Many times, servicemembers can test out of some of the lower-grade introductory courses, saving time and getting their degree quicker. By using both ACE’s guide and DANTES, you can maximize your GI Bill entitlement. By saving entitlement, you may be able to take some graduate courses that you otherwise would not have the entitlement to use.
