College Credit for Military Training

At Liberty University, there are several ways in which you may be able to use your military experience to finish your degree sooner than you think. Review the information below to find out how you can maximize your training and experience as you pursue your degree at Liberty University.

If you have any questions about this process, contact our Military Evaluations Coordinators by emailing miltransfer@liberty.edu.


Free Evaluation of Military Training

Liberty University offers a free evaluation of your 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. 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 about military security certificate issues.

*Coast Guard Institute and Marine Corps Institute credit will now be included on the Joint Services Transcript.

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 & 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.


CLEP and DSST Test Scores

If you have taken any CLEP or DSST tests, your scores may qualify you to receive additional transfer credit. You must submit an official CLEP or DSST transcript to the Transfer Evaluations Office for evaluation.
