Military experience (ME) credit at Columbia College
In addition to training found on the JST and CCAF transcript, Columbia College awards additional credit for service. This Military Experience (ME) credit is given based on the student's length of service and rank.
Columbia College performs one precursory credit review for each prospective student who is active duty, reserve military member, or veteran looking for the right institution to meet their needs. Military dependents are not eligible for this service.
