Leveraging Your Military Service for College Credit
JU now has a Director of Prior Learning Assessment, Jody Kamens, who can help you get academic credit for your military service and other experience. For more information about getting academic credit for your experience, contact Jody Kamens at 904-256-7104 or email@example.com.
Joint Services Transcript
You should request a Joint Service Transcript (JST) to assist Jacksonville University in assessing your military service for college credit. JST is an academically accepted document, approved by the American Council on Education (ACE), to validate a service member's military occupational experience and training along with the corresponding ACE college credit recommendations. The JST serves the following purposes:
- Provides a description of military schooling and work history in civilian language
- Serves as a counseling tool for academic and career counselors to better advise service members and veterans
- Aids in preparing resumes and explaining Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, National Guard and Navy work experience to civilian employers
- Saves time and money by awarding academic credits, which means less tuition to pay and less time spent in the classroom
