Military Experience Credit

It is the policy of CU Denver to award transfer credit for military courses and/or military service based on the recommendations of the American Council on Education's (ACE) Guide to the Evaluation of Education Experiences in the Armed Services, provided such credit is generally applicable to CU Denver programs of study. For military transcripts such as CCAF and AARTS, transfer credit is considered on the same basis as transcripts from traditional collegiate institutions.

Upon review of the Certificate of Release of Discharge from Active Duty form (DD-214)/Member 4 Service 2 or additional documentation as required, either elective or core course credit will be awarded based on ACE recommendations.
