Transfer Credits for Military Experience

AIC recognizes the value of the many educational and leadership experiences that occur in the Armed Forces, and the excellent foundation that military experience provides. So we give veteran students transfer credits for service in the U.S. Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines, and Coast Guard.

With our comprehensive transfer credit policy, you’ll get a head start on earning your degree at AIC. Request a no-cost evaluation of your prior college, military training, advanced placement programs, assessment of prior learning, portfolios, work related exams, and college level examination program credits.

If you do not already have copies of your military transcripts, request them here:

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 servicemembers the opportunity to earn credits toward general education requirements at college.

AIC can review your courses that map to DANTES credits and 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, and English.

Veterans Alumni Committee

All AIC veterans are encouraged to join the Veterans Alumni Committee. The committee’s mission is to honor, support and recognize AIC students who have returned from deployment or been on active military duty.
