Submit Your Joint Service Transcript and All College Transcripts (JST)

The JST provides a description of military schooling and work history in a way that civilian schools can understand. When you complete a military school or training, you may earn college credit hours toward your degree. All transcripts are required before certification. 

 

U.S. Air Force Veteran Students

U.S. Air Force veteran students will need to request their Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) transcript. You can order your CCAF transcript through Parchment, or visit the CCAF website for more options.
