Credit for Military Training

It is the policy and practice of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay to award the following credit for military training:

1. Basic and Advanced Training

If someone has completed Basic and Advanced Recruit Training, he or she is automatically eligible and awarded the following 14 credits upon receipt of a DD 214 Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty form with an honorable discharge:

2 crs.    MIL SCI 211, Leadership and Military Science I
2 crs.    MIL SCI 212, Leadership and Military Science II
3 crs.    MIL SCI 221, Basic Leadership and Management I
3 crs.    MIL SCI 222, Basic Leadership and Management II
3 crs.    HUM BIOL 116, First Aid-Emergency Care Procedures
1 cr.     PHY ED 121, Personal Conditioning

2. Basic Training

If someone has completed Basic Recruit Training, he or she is automatically eligible and awarded the following 4 credits upon receipt of a DD 214 Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty form with an honorable discharge:

3 crs.    HUM BIOL 116, First Aid-Emergency Care Procedures
1 cr.     PHY ED 121, Personal Conditioning

3. American Council on Education (ACE) Transfer Credit

UW-Green Bay supports the proposition that it is sound educational practice to grant academic credit for high-quality educational programs conducted by the military and other noncollegiate organizations, provided that the courses are appropriate to an individual’s educational program. Thus, in November 1996, the campus’ Academic Affairs Council approved the following policy:

“Courses recognized by the American Council on Education (ACE) as appropriate for undergraduate university credit may be considered for transfer and must be approved by an appropriate UW-Green Bay department chair.”

UW-Green Bay awards and treats the credits described on this page as if they are transfer credits for purposes of meeting degree requirements and residency requirements. The military credits described on this page are granted for enrolled undergraduate students seeking a degree; policies of other colleges would determine whether they would accept these credits for transfer.

Process: Request for Evaluation of ACE-Recommended Courses
1. Students submit official transcripts (including their military ACE record) as part of the admissions process.

2. The Registrar’s Office consults with the appropriate academic unit chair for UWGB course equivalency rulings.

3. The Registrar’s Office receives a course ruling and the student is awarded the credit or notified if credit is not granted.
