Credit for Military Service Courses

Students who have served in the Armed Forces may be allowed transfer credit for courses taken in some military schools. Students who desire to apply for credit should submit a copy of their DD 214 form or AARTS/SMART transcript (or its equivalent) to the UW Admissions Office for evaluation based on recommendations in the American Council of Education (ACE) guidelines. Individual University of Wyoming colleges will determine whether course work is applicable to degree programs offered.

Contact the Transfer Success Center for more information.
