Military Credit

Bellevue College accepts military training and experience for college credit. There are two main documents we can use to award credit:

  • Joint Services Transcript (JST)
    • This contains a record of all your training and work experience in the military. You can order your JST online.
  • DD 214
    • Awards 3 credits of Physical Education only

  3. Submit the Request for Extra Institutional Learning. Check the box for “Extra-Institutional Learning.”
