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.

Military Credit Inventory Procedures

Call (315) 786-6566 to discuss JCC’s Military Credit Inventory with a JCC advisor. If Ft Drum is not your current duty station or you are deployed email bbentz@sunyjefferson.edu.

If you've had previous college classes, we will need an official transcript to put your Joint Services Transcript (JST) together.

Bring an unofficial copy of your JST with you for review.

If here locally please complete the Military Credit Inventory application and print, to bring with you to the Education Center. Order an official Joint Services Transcript (JST) to be sent to Jefferson Community College.

If deployed or not here locally, please complete your application online. You will be contacted via email regarding payment information
