Educational Experience Credit

Credit for Educational Experience in the Armed Forces

Credit earned through educational experiences in the armed forces can be validated and accepted by the College. Credit is accepted based on state-wide policies at Iowa colleges and universities and based on its applicability toward meeting the requirements in the student's program of study. An American Council on Education (ACE) publication, "Guide to the Evaluations of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services," is generally used in making these determinations.

Credit is awarded only for significant learning experiences as recommended by the ACE guide. No credit will be awarded based on the Military Occupational Specialties evaluation program. Credit may be awarded for course work completed via correspondence, classroom study and/or examination through the United States Armed Forces Institute.
