BY MAXIMIZING CREDIT FOR WHAT YOU ALREADY KNOW

At WITC, there are several ways in which you may be able to use your military experience to finish your degree as efficiently and affordably as possible. With WITC's comprehensive transfer opportunities, you can do just that!

The American Council on Education (ACE) has evaluated formal courses and occupations offered by all branches of the military for equivalent college credit that may apply to your program. WITC will review your military transcripts to determine transfer credit based on recommendations from the American Council on Education.
