College Credit for Military Experience
Your military service has likely earned you college credit. Keystone College awards credit toward a degree based on training and coursework. Keystone College evaluates your military experience for transfer credits.
Basic Training Credits
All service members who have successfully completed Basic Training are eligible to receive 2 credits for PHED 105. To receive credit, please forward a copy of your DD-214 to the Registrar's Office.
Request a Transcript
The first step to having your other experience evaluated for transfer credit is to request a transcript from your military service. Each service will provide unofficial personal copies and send schools an official copy of your transcript at no charge.
Each service branch has their own system for recording your military education and experience credits:
Navy or Marines
Navy and Marine Corps can request their transcript from the SMART System.
The Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) provides transcripts for Air Force Service members.
- Transcripts received from the above sources will be accompanied by credit recommendations from the American Council on Education (ACE). In most cases, ACE-recommended credits will be used in combination to fulfill your free-elective credit requirements. However, each is evaluated on an individual basis and may serve to fulfill graduation requirements if the content is appropriate.
Credits accepted through these programs are transfer credits and are included in determining the allowable transfer credits to be used for each degree type. For an associate degree, a maximum of 32 transfer credits may be accepted. For a bachelor's degree, a maximum of 75 transfer credits may be accepted.
