Columbia College follows American Council on Education (ACE) credit recommendations for all evaluated Marine Corps military courses and occupations.
Columbia College requires the Joint Services Transcript (JST) for credit evaluation. The JST allows enlisted servicemembers who advance up-to and beyond officer status to continue to benefit from updated transcripts, in addition to standardizing transcript quality across all branches.
Other military documents may be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, but the JST is the only guaranteed transcript for evaluation. Contact MSC@ccis.edu with questions.
