Army Transfer Credit

We follow American Council on Education (ACE) credit recommendations for all evaluated Army courses and occupations.

Columbia College requires the Joint Services Transcript (JST) for credit evaluation. The JST allows enlisted service members who advance up to and beyond officer status to continue to benefit from updated transcripts. 

Other military documents may be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. However, the JST is the only guaranteed transcript for evaluation. 

Career NCO Degrees Program

The Career NCO Degrees Program is available to all NCOs at any point in their career but maximum credit for Army leadership schools is based on completion of the Non-commissioned Officer Educational Schools (NCEOS) through Sergeants Major Course.

We offer two degrees in this program:

  • Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration
  • Bachelor of Science in Business Administration

Enlisted Education Program 

The Enlisted Education Program allows entry-level Soldiers in Combat Arms MOSs in Career Management Fields (CMFs) 11 Infantry, 13 Field Artillery, 14 Air Defense Artillery and 19 Armor to obtain an associate degree during their first term of enlistment. Program criteria require participating colleges to accept ACE recommended credit for military courses; provide AA, AS and AGS degrees; minimize academic residency requirements; maximize credit transfer between colleges; and provide assessment of prior learning/career experience.
