    NOTES AND CONDITIONS

    Military Credit Estimator: The Military Credit Estimator will provide an estimate of how many credits you may be eligible to receive based on your skill level/rate/rank in a given MOS/Rating/AFSC. ESTIMATES ARE NOT A GUARANTEE OF CREDIT. They are based on aggregate transfer credit evaluation results of prior students from the same branch, rank, and/or occupation OR educational mapping case studies of courses required for the selected military occupation and rank, ACE-recommended occupation credit, and enlisted professional military education (EPME); estimates include transfer credit from prior institutions, credit by examination, and credit from experiential learning. Exact transfer credit amount may vary depending on completed military courses and occupations as listed on your official Joint Services Transcript(s). All credits must be validated on official transcript(s) to be eligible for transfer.
