Military Credit

 Military Friendly

At Ohio University, we recognize and value the contributions that our veterans, dependents, and military personnel make to our campus community. We recognize and honor the sacrifices that have been made through service to our country and appreciate the leadership and broad experiences that veterans bring to OHIO.

 


Credit for Armed Forces Courses

Courses taken while enlisted in the armed forces will in most cases earn you Ohio University Credit. The Guide to the Evaluational Experience in the Armed Services, published by the American Council on Education, is used to determine what credit might be granted. Once your coursework is evaluated, you will be able to view the equivalencies by visiting the online transfer credit evaluation.

An official military course transcript is required in order to conduct an official evaluation. The following resources have been made available by the Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Navy and Marines so that you can have official transcripts sent.
