Option 2 (Joint Services Transcript):
Your own credit recommendations will appear on your JST. Actual credit awarded is solely at the discretion of the college or university. See this website for more details: https://www.acenet.edu/news-room/Pages/Transfer-Guide-Understanding-Your-Military-Transcript-and-ACE-Credit-Recommendations.aspx
Your military credit will probably help most when used to fulfill elective credit hour requirements in your degree plan. To graduate with a bachelor’s degree, the university requires that you graduate with at least 120 credit hours. Note that some majors may require slightly more. But, your General Education, major, minor (if required), and other possible requirements will not always add up to 120 credit hours. That extra credit hour space can be filled with elective hours from your JST. However, not all bachelor degree plans leave space for electives, so elective military credit may not be needed.
Military training may be determined to be equivalent to courses within your major or minor requirements. This is more likely when your training was related to the major or minor. In such cases, the department may decide to give specific Weber course credit. Some departments at Weber State University will be unable to consider ACE credit recommendations for your specific major course requirements due to restrictive accreditation standards for those majors.
In less common cases, some of your training may qualify for a limited amount of General Education credit.
You will meet with an advisor to discuss the applicability of your military credit to your program of study after your JST has been evaluated. If you decide to change your program of study later on, you can request a re-evaluation of your JST.
