Military Experience Credit

  • Military service credit (formal school training only) is processed when official documents or transcripts are received at ASU. 
  • Only courses found in the American Council on Education Guide or on transcripts (CCAF, AARTS, SMART) can be evaluated. 
  • Locally conducted (base- or post-level) courses are generally not accepted due to their unstructured and changing content.
  • The chairperson from the academic department where you expect to earn your degree will make the final decision as to how the credit will be awarded.
  • Course work accepted from the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) is not considered military credit. It is considered transfer credit from a regionally accrediting community college. Review of CCAF credits will be completed following Adams State University transfer policies.
  • Military Service Transcripts (CCAF, AARTS, SMART) should be sent to
