Indiana University follows the American Council on Education's Guide to Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services in granting credit on the basis of education gained through military service, schools, and experience. To receive credit for your military service background, you must submit copies of your official release from military service (DD214) to the IU South Bend Office of Admissions.
We consider the recommendations of the following two publications when awarding credit for noncollegiate or company-sponsored programs/courses: American Council on Education: The National Guide to Education Credit for Training Programs and The National College Credit Recommendation Service. Contact your General Studies advisor to see if your training programs are included.
