Military Service Credit

Credit for Military Service

If you have eighteen months of consecutive active duty, you are normally awarded four (4) units of elective credit toward graduation. If you have earned a commission in the U.S. Armed Forces, you may petition the Office of Undergraduate Admissions for an additional 12 units. We can evaluate your military credit as soon as you have been admitted to Northern Arizona University and have submitted all required documentation.

ACE Military Credits

If you are a veteran, Northern Arizona University may accept up to 35 units of ACE military credits as transfer credit.

The specific credits Northern Arizona University accepts are those offered by different branches of the U.S. Armed Forces and certified by the American Council on Education (ACE). At the lower-division level, ACE credit is accepted in block form with generic equivalencies.
