American Council on Education's Military Guide
The Military Guide is the sole source of information for all military courses and occupations as evaluated by the American Council on Education (ACE) since 1954. The Military Guide expands on the information found in a U.S. Armed Forces service member’s Joint Services Transcript (JST). It provides advisory recommendations for placing active-duty service members and veterans in postsecondary programs of study and jobs.
Military courses listed are for formal service school training approved by a central authority within each branch of the U.S. Armed Forces.
Military service occupations are evaluated to determine if the training and experience received warrants college-level credit.
