Transfer credits

Learn more about military experience credits and how to transfer college credits.

Military and veteran students bring invaluable real-life experience to South University classrooms. Additionally, most military training courses have been evaluated for academic credit by the American Council on Education (ACE). At South University, we will evaluate your Joint Service Transcript (//jst.doded.mil/official.html) or corresponding official service transcript to determine if we can award college level credit for your prior learning.

South University recognizes credit from non-traditional educational sources such as College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) and DANTES (Defense Activityfor Non-Traditional Education Support) Subject Standardized Tests (DSST) exams. Evaluation for award of credit based on these exams is also done through the registrar’s office. The resources below can help you get started with planning for a CLEP exam or requesting your military transcript for a Transfer of Credit evaluation.

CLEP

The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) can help you earn credit for what you’ve learned from the military and your life experience. Learn more about CLEP or schedule an exam at //clep.collegeboard.org/.

DSST (also known as DANTES)

The DANTES Subject Standardized Tests exams are college level examinations through which one can receive college credit for prior knowledge in particular subject areas. For a complete listing, visit the testing services office or www.getcollegecredit.com.
