Transfer Credits for Military Service

Temple awards college credit for documented military experience according to the ACE (American Council on Education) guide recommendations. Examples of acceptable documentation for military experience include AARTS (Army/ACE Registry Transcript System), SMART (Sailor/Marine/ACE Registry Transcript) or Community College of the Air Force transcript. For credit to be awarded, it must be useful in a student's program of study. Learn more about transfer credits for veterans.
