NOVA'S faculty realizes those who have served and are serving our country have gone through extensive training, and perhaps have taken courses that equate to college-level learning.

Military students have access to the same prior learning options, such as Credit by Exam and PLACE, as all other students, but it is important to note the specialized military course transfer options.

Military Course Transfer Options

AIR FORCE (Community College of the Air Force)

Community College of the Air Force transcripts are evaluated by the campus as a traditional college transcript. Students who are or were in the AIR FORCE can request a CCAF transcript at http://www.au.af.mil/au/ccaf/transcripts.asp.

ARMY, NAVY, MARINES, or COAST GUARD

Students who are or were in the ARMY, NAVY, MARINES, or COAST GUARD need to request an official Joint Services Transcript at https://jst.doded.mil. Transcripts should be electronically sent to the student’s local campus or the Office of Military Services and a Request for Evaluation of Transcript form must be submitted to NOVA’s student services.

  • Accepted Army, Navy, Marine and Coast Guard courses come by recommendation from The American Council on Education (ACE). Students can verify evaluation and acceptance of specific courses and training via the online ACE Military Guide.

ADDITIONAL MARINE CORP PROGRAMS

In addition to the joint services transcript, NOVA has pre-approved many Marine Corp Military Occupational Specialties (MOS) for college credit. Please see Military Related Experiences from the Advanced Standing Manual for a complete listing.
