The College of Charleston Accepts Military Credits

Students may earn up to 30 transfer credit hours from their Joint Services Transcript/Community College of the Air Force Transcripts

The Joint Services Transcript (JST) from the issuing agency is required for current and former Army, Navy and Marine Corps, and Coast Guard students.

The Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) official transcript is required for all students who have attended this institution.

Students admitted or readmitted Spring 2020 forward will have their Joint Services Transcript (JST) evaluated for potential transfer credit during the new student transfer credit evaluation process following admission to the College.

Students admitted or readmitted prior to Spring 2020 will have the opportunity to have their Joint Services Transcript (JST) evaluated for potential transfer credit during a designated waiver period. More information about this waiver process and timeline will be available during the Spring 2020 semester.
