Course Credit for Military Experience/Training


WKU accepts military credit for undergraduate degrees! 

WKU strives to be a military friendly institution that will provide military personnel the ability to attend WKU and receive college credit for formal courses and primary occupations offered while in the military. WKU awards college credit based on the American Council on Education (ACE) Guide recommendation, and the credit will count as non-residence credit. Active Duty service members or military veterans are required to submit offical military transcripts prior to admission. WKU will accept all ACE recommended credit for formal courses and primary occupations. The only limitation is that you still need to complete at least 25% of the degree in residence at WKU, meaning 25% of your degree must be from WKU classes.

Your Joint Services Transcript (JST) or the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) transcript is available to help you receive college credits for your military training and coursework.  **Please make sure to identify as a VETERAN or MILITARY on the admissions application so that you can be assured your transcripts will be articulated upon entry to WKU.**
