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. Service members 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 Service members 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).
Coast Guard transcripts can be requested through the US Department of Homeland Security via the Coast Guard Institute application CGI-1561J, found here. Or you can order it electronically through the Joint Service Transcript service.
To submit your military training for course credit, please upload your military transcripts to Franklin University’s Learning Exchange. The Learning Exchange is a free, web-based tool that simplifies the process of submitting non-traditional credit for evaluation. Through the Learning Exchange you can collect certificates, military training, advanced placement, proficiency tests and other learning experiences for evaluation toward college credit.
