Credit For U.S. Military Service And Training
Northern Arizona University uses the American Council on Education (ACE) recommendations and university articulation guidelines to assess credit for U.S. military service and training for undergraduate students.
NAU will accept up to 35 units of ACE-recommended military credit as transfer work toward a baccalaureate degree. Credit will be awarded as lower-division general elective credit or department elective credit.
A student can be awarded an additional 4 units of credit for 18 consecutive months of active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces if terminated under honorable conditions, as documented on the DD214.
A student who has earned a commission in the U.S. Armed Forces, may petition the Office of Admissions and Orientation for an additional 12 units.
