How to Obtain Military Transcripts
Each branch of the military has developed methods for documenting military training that the American Council on Education (ACE) has evaluated for college credit. For information on obtaining your military transcript, find your branch of service:
The US Army provides a transcript of ACE recommended credits called an AARTS transcript. Select the option for OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPTS and if asked, select the option allowing Alliant International University permission to download your transcript from the Internet. This process normally takes only a few days.
The Army AARTS transcript database includes transcripts going back to 1981. Army veterans may obtain their transcript by contacting the AARTS Center in Ft. Leavenworth, KS at (866) 297-4427.
