Credit for Military Experience/Training

JWCC will automatically award 4 hours of college elective credit for basic military training to enrolled students who provide copies of their DD214 to our registrar's office. We also award credit for military training and experience based upon your Joint Services transcript, CLEP, DANTES, DSST, and the ACE Military Guide recommendations. The American Council on Education's (ACE) Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services has been the standard reference work for recognizing learning acquired in the military for more than half a century.

If you would like to have a SOC evaluation of your academic records by JWCC, please complete the following steps after enrolling in JWCC classes. Please note that you must be an enrolled student at John Wood Community College before the requested SOC evaluation will be completed.

  1. Contact Lisa Snodgrass, Veterans Coordinator.
  2. Ensure a copy of your Joint Services Transcript is sent to JWCC
  3. Have official copies of all prior college or university transcripts sent directly to JWCC
