Get college credit for military experience
Whether you're on active duty, reserve, or veteran status your military experience and training may count toward college credit at Franklin University.
The Army, Marine Corps, Navy and Coast Guard use a synchronized transcript service called JST or Joint Services Transcript. Students request an official copy be sent to Franklin University for transfer credit consideration by completing the online Joint Service Transcript service. Servicemembers can also access an unofficial version of their JST any time by logging into the JST system and completing the required steps.
The JST transcript consists of:
- Personal service-member data
- Military course completions with descriptions
- Military experience & training (per each MOS)
- College-level test scores (CLEP & DANTES)
- Other learning experiences
- Summary page (with Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (SOC) transferability codes)
- Academic institution courses page
ACE provides quality assurance and policy guidance to the Army, Navy, Coast Guard and Marine Corps for military transcripts
The Air Force is still testing the JST process. Students with Air Force service training and experiences will continue to order their military transcripts through the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) .
