Credit for Military Service

Need College Credit for your Military Training & Experience?
Jefferson Community College Can Help!

Jefferson Community College’s Military Credit Inventory converts military training and experience
into college-level credit, providing soldiers with a valid assessment of their college-level learning
outcomes gained through their military training and experience. Your college-level learning
outcomes will be assessed upon the college credit recommendations of the American Council on
Education (ACE). Soldiers have used the Military Credit Inventory transcript for advanced enlisted
promotions and for civilian employment opportunities.

The Military Credit Inventory is for soldiers who are NOT seeking admission into a college degree
program where military training and experience is evaluated as part of the admissions process.
