You may be able to receive college credit for your military training and experience. For example, all 16 UNC campuses will award credit and hours for military basic recruit training. This credit can be used to fulfill the Health and Physical Education general education requirement. Additional credit may be awarded as applicable based on degree requirements and ACE recommendations as reported on your military transcript. You can request the appropriate military transcript be sent to the campus of your choice from one of the following organizations:

The American Council on Education (ACE) has published a Transfer Guide designed to help military veterans understand the system by which colleges award academic credit for training earned while in the armed forces. The publication lays out the different approaches taken by different institutions and the ways in which the ACE Credit Recommendations process tries to bridge those differences.
