Your bachelor's degree is closer than you think

​Save time and money at CMU by applying your military education and training, transfer credit, and life experiences to your bachelor's degree.

At CMU, we can help you get the most out of all you've accomplished. We'll determine just how much of your bachelor's degree you have already completed and help you map the most efficient course to finish it.

Military education and training credit

Depending on your Military Occupational Specialty and rank, you could have as much as 1/3 of your bachelor's degree completed. Your basic, advanced and occupational specialty training can be applied to the following CMU bachelor's degrees:

Joint Services Transcript evaluation

When you send us your JST, we'll evaluate your basic and advanced training and let you know how many credits you can apply to your program.

Other military transfer credit

We accept a wide variety of military transfer credits based on the American Council on Education recommendations and the requirements of the program you choose.

Prior Learning credit

It's not just your military training that can save you time and money. Our Prior Learning program helps you document what you have learned in prior work, training and community activities. CMU faculty assess the portfolio you create and award credits for college-level knowledge that applies to your degree. Prior learning credits only cost 22% of the current tuition rate. It's possible to save thousands of dollars on your degree.

College transfer credit

Have you taken any courses at an accredited community college, college or university? Send your official transcripts to CMU. We will evaluate how those credits can best be applied to your program, too.

What transfers?

For a quick look at how your courses might transfer, go to and use:

  • The Transfer Equivalency Tool to see more than 800 military training courses that have already been evaluated.
  • The Transfer Simulation Tool to check how specific courses transfer into specific CMU degrees.
