UAB evaluates military service and educational experiences completed by active-duty military service and Coast Guard personnel. UAB will award up to 24 hours of transferable military credit for veterans using their Joint Services transcripts with ACE recommendations. Students who do not provide a Joint Services transcripts may be awarded four (4) hours of Military Science credit based on receipt of their DD-214.

Students seeking military credit are required to submit their Joint Services Transcript prior to enrolling, just like any other transcript. However, for transfer students, the military credits awarded will not count towards the 24 transferable hour requirement because they are not GPA hours, but rather pass/fail courses.
