U.S. Military Training Credit Transfer
At CTU, we want to recognize the experience you've gained through military
service. That's why we follow the American Council on Education (ACE)
recommendations for military transfer credit. Learn more about how your training
can count towards earning a CTU education and find resources that will help you
apply other education credits.
Prior Learning Assessment Credit
Colorado Technical University's Prior Learning Assessment Advisors will review
and evaluate your military training, courses, occupational specialties and
traditional education for potential transfer credits.* The evaluation will list your
projected transfer credit. The Admissions Department can then develop a
personalized degree plan showing how your military college credits can be
applied to your preferred degree at CTU. We can also identify ways for you to
complete the remaining degree requirements.
We use official military transcripts to develop your degree program. You should
request and maintain copies of your transcripts for your own reference. You can
obtain copies of your military transcript using the appropriate links here. Some
branches allow you to request and receive your transcripts online; others must be
requested in writing.
The American Council on Education (ACE)
ACE is a coordinating organization helping institutions and organizations advance
the higher education system. This organization ultimately helps individuals by
evaluating and recommending institutional, and some non-traditional education
and training, allowing accredited educational bodies to accept credit
recommendations. Colorado Technical University uses ACE recommendations to
award you transfer credit for your military experience and training.
Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (SOC)
Colorado Technical University is a member of SOC consortium of schools. SOC
is a consortium of approximately 1,900 colleges and universities that award
associate, bachelor's and graduate-level degrees. CTU is also member of the
SOC degree network system. The purpose of the network is to universally accept
each network member school's transfer credits to assist servicemembers in their
completion of an associate or bachelor's degree.
The Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard have access to the SOC, which
also uses the ACE Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experience in the
Armed Forces as the basis for evaluating military training and experience.)
*Not all credits eligible to transfer. Acceptance of transfer credit is at the sole
discretion of CTU. See the university's catalog regarding
CTU's transfer credit policies.
