Transfer of Military Credit

Kirkwood awards transfer credit for military training as follows:

Direct course equivalency credit is granted for Military Occupation Specialty (MOS) based courses in certain fields.

Technical elective credit is granted for basic training and non-MOS courses completed while in the military provided the course is listed in the ACE (American Council on Education) Guide. No more than 16.0 hours of technical elective credit will be awarded. This is in accordance with the Liaison Advisory Committee on Transfer Students (LACTS) agreement between Iowa community colleges and public universities.

To receive credit, students must provide documentation by submitting official military transcripts to the VA certifying official.
