Credit for Military Training

Weber State University gives you two ways of getting credit for your military training.

Option 1 - Weber State University's DD-214 Military Credit:

• Students who have completed at least 24 months of active military service may be granted a maximum of 10 credit hours. These credits are awarded as HLTH 1030 (3 credit hours), which could work towards satisfying the General Education Social Sciences requirement, plus another 7 elective credit hours.
• Students who have completed four or more years in the National Guard or a reserve unit will be awarded HLTH 1030 and 7 elective credit hours.
•  Although not required when applying for Option 1 Military Credit, it is highly recommended that you meet with an appropriate advisor for your program of study before applying for it.  It is also recommended that you include application for this credit at the same time as any credit from your JST credit (see Option 2 below).


Option 2 - Joint Services Transcript (JST) Military Credit Evaluation:
•Additional credit may be granted for military schooling if specific requirements are met. (Credit may be awarded as elective credit.  Certain credits may also be articulated as equivalent to WSU coursework, if applicable.)

• The JST option does not apply for US Air Force or Defense Language Institute training.  Because they are regionally-accredited institutions, any student with Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) and/or Defense Language Institute (DLI) transcripts must have them sent directly from those schools to Weber State University's Admissions Office to be evaluated.  This is not optional.
• Military credit will be evaluated and applied only if it can be applied to a legitimate undergraduate degree program.
