Military Credit Transfer

Military Experience

Muskegon Community College (MCC) will evaluate your military credits for possible award of transfer credits after your official transcript has been received and you have been admitted to the College.

  • Military transcripts will be evaluated within approximately six to eight weeks and may take an extended amount of time to be evaluated due to sending recommendations to departments for approval.
  • Muskegon Community College will try to award direct course equivalencies. When direct equivalencies are not available, an elective in an appropriate academic subject may be awarded. MCC is unable to grant credit for military specific credit.

Joint Services Transcript (JST)

JST is the Joint Services Transcript that has replaced the Coast Guard Institute Transcript, the Army/American Council on Education Registry Transcript (AARTS) and the Sailor/Marine American Council on Education Registry Transcript (SMART). JST is an academically accepted document approved by the American Council on Education (ACE) to validate a service member’s military occupation experience and training along with the corresponding ACE college credit recommendation. For additional information on Military Transcript Evaluation visit ACE | Military Programs and check out Joint Service Transcript (JST) Video.

Step 1: Register for an account with JST, if you have not done so already via https://jst.doded.mil.

Step 2: Log into the JST system via https://jst.doded.mil

Step 3: Click on the ‘Transcripts’ tab at the top of the page, and then select the ‘Official Transcript request’ tab.

Step 4: Type in the institution name or part of the name and click ‘search’ or hit the enter key. For example instead of typing in the ‘Some Name University’ you could type in ‘Some Name’. You may need to scroll through the entire list to ensure you have the correct location.

*QUICK TIP: Do not use any punctuation when typing in the name of an institution. If you receive ‘no matches found’, try using a smaller part of the institution’s name.

Step 5: This will bring you to the order page that will show your name, rate/rank, etc., and the institution name. You will be asked if this is the institution you wish to have a transcript sent to. Please ensure you pay attention to the delivery method.
