Wondering what requirements exist to transfer your credits to a college or university in Indiana? We can help.
Meet credit transfer and enrollment certification requirements.
Applying your military experience for college credit is a great way to earn your degree faster and save money. But you also have to know who’s got your back on campus and what you need to do to continue receiving your monthly education benefits as a student. Here’s what you need to know.
If you’re ready to trade in your camo for campus life, prospective schools will need to have an official copy of your transcripts. Transcripts document your military occupational experience and training, which can be applied as credits toward earning your college degree.
There are two types of military transcripts accepted by institutions of higher learning:
- Joint Services Transcript (JST) — This transcript validates your Army, Coast Guard, Marines, or Navy service record, and you can access it and send it to a school for free if you are active duty or a veteran
- Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) — This transcript confirms your Air Force service record, and you can access it and receive a hard copy of it for free if you are active duty or a veteran
Keep your enrollment certification up to date with Veterans Affairs or you might lose your monthly education benefits.
