Guidelines for Advanced Standing Credit
1. Access the website(s) listed below to obtain the official military transcript (sometimes called AARTS, SMART, or ACE transcript) of college work, training, and job responsibilities (NOTE: A DD-214 is not enough to evaluate credit. You must present one of the transcripts below):
• Air Force
Army/A.C.E. Registry Transcript System (AARTS)
• Marine and Navy
Sailor/Marine American Council on Education Registry Transcript (SMART)
• Ace Military Programs
2. See the counselor to obtain the Application for Advanced Standing Credit.
3. Complete the Application for Advanced Standing Credit. There is no fee for the military evaluation. (Note: Application for military credit does not guarantee that credit will be granted).
4. Return the application to the counselor along with the official military transcript for routing to the Registrar’s Office.
Counselor then forwards the official military transcript with the Application for Advanced Standing Credit to the Registrar’s Office, MC 1136.
