Committed to Military Students

CTU has a long-standing reputation for helping military service members, veterans, and their families achieve their academic and professional goals. From specially-trained admissions and financial aid advisors, to policies that maximize transfer credit for military training and service, CTU is focused on serving those who serve.

CTU was named to the list of military centric schools by G.I. Jobs magazine in 2010-2015.

Military Advanced Education recognized CTU as one of the top universities serving the educational needs of the Armed Forces in 2008-2015.

Military Times ranked CTU among the Best for Vets for 2 years in a row.

The CTU Wounded Warrior Scholarship offers educational assistance to wounded service men and women as they recover from their injuries.

CTU’s Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) team uses the American Council on Education (ACE) Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services as the basis for evaluating military training and experience. ACE collaborates with the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to review military training and experiences and recommend appropriate college credit for members of the Armed Forces.

Get Your Transfer Credit Assessment

For an evaluation of your eligible military training or education, please complete a CTU transcript request form or request an official military transcript.

Official military transcripts – most often Joint Services Transcripts, AARTS or SMART – are the only acceptable documentation for military training, military occupation specialty (MOS) code and level, and Services School Credit. A clear way to see if a document is acceptable is if an ACE credit recommendation is included, or if the document indicates that ACE has evaluated the training/course. If you have more than one type of transcript, all transcripts must be requested for the assessment.
