Edgewood College offers credit for military occupations and training courses if they are recommended for credit by the American Council on Education (ACE) and if Edgewood has similar courses. The credits earned are general elective credits toward the 120 (or 128 for nursing) credits required for a bachelor's degree. They do not fulfill specific general education or major requirements. Students with questions about fulfilling major requirements should contact their advisor.
Students should request an official copy of their military transcript be sent to Edgewood College. Official transcripts must come directly from the military or arrive stamped and sealed.
