Military Transfer Credits

American International College recognizes the value of the many educational and leadership experiences that occur in the Armed Forces, and we also appreciate the excellent foundation that military experience provides. Therefore, we allow students to receive transfer credits for service in the U.S. Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine or Coast Guard. We are proud to support our military students through our accessible, affordable degree programs.

American International College is designated a military-friendly school by G.I. Jobs magazines.

DSST and CLEP Credits

Through the DANTES Subject Standardized Test (DSST) and the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) exams, you can translate military, work and cultural experience into college credits. Sponsored by the Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES) and the College Board, these exams provide service members the opportunity to earn credits toward general education requirements at college.

American International College can review your courses that map to DANTES credits and the courses that map to CLEP exams. Courses for which you can test out through DANTES or CLEP may include introductory history, economics, psychology, chemistry, math, sociology, computer technology, physical sciences, English and more.
