Air Force Transcripts

The Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) concept began in the early 1970s as a means of gaining accreditation and recognition for Air Force training. Over the years the college has grown both in numbers and recognition. With more than 378,000 registered students, the college is the largest multi-campus community college in the world. Its affiliated schools are located in 35 states, the District of Columbia, six foreign locations, and one territory. More than a million transcripts have been issued in the last 10 years, and in 2001-02 CCAF students earned 1.77 million hours of college credit. Since issuing its first degree in 1977, the college has awarded more than 243,000 associate in applied science degrees.

In addition to name and SSN, the transcript contains the following information:

  • Current or highest enlisted rank
  • Military status (active or inactive)*
  • Additional Skill Identifiers (ASI) and Skill Qualification identifiers (SQI)
  • Formal military courses
  • Military Occupational Specialties (MOS) held Standardized test scores
  • Descriptions and credit recommendations developed by ACE

Navy and Marine Corps Transcripts

Joint Service Transcripts (JST) is now available to document American Council on Education (ACE) recommended college credit for military training and occupational experience. JST is an academically accepted record that is validated by ACE. The primary purpose of JST is to assist service members in obtaining college credit for their military experience.

JST has replaced the DD295, the Application for Evaluation of Learning Experiences during Military Service, which is the form currently submitted to colleges by Sailors and Marines to verify their military experiences. The DD295 may still be necessary to document some training and experience that is not contained in and cannot be added to current personnel and training databases.
