Free Evaluation of Military Training

Liberty University offers a free evaluation of military training and experience for college credit.  All credit granted for military training is given based on the American Council on Education (ACE) guide recommendations.

Request your Military Transcript

To request an official evaluation of your military experience and training for college credit, please request an official transcript using the links below.

Please note: DoD websites often have security certificates that are not automatically recognized by browsers on civilian computers. The links provided below may prompt you to check that the certificate is one you trust before proceeding to the website. Learn more here.

Your request will result in an official transcript being automatically submitted to Liberty University for evaluation. This is all that is needed to complete your military evaluation. Please do not send in any medal certificates, letters of appreciation, or any other awards and certificates, as these cannot be evaluated. If you served in the military prior to the year 1981 then you may submit a copy of your DD214, 2-1, 2A, or DD295 for evaluation.
