Transferring Military Credit

Our academic departments and the Veterans and Military Services Office work together to ensure a thorough evaluation of military transfer credit. One model used to evaluate possible college credit comes from the American Council on Education (ACE). ACE recommendations provide insight into credit recommendations for various military career specialties to include basic training. It is important to note that final approval for transfer credit rests within the academic departments across campus. The Admissions Office will need to include an in-depth evaluation.

OTC strongly encourages all former and current military personnel to have an official transcript of your military training sent to our Admissions Office for review.

All students with military credit can choose from one of three options after reaching out to Veteran’s and Military Services at

  1. Receive the standard 21 hours of transfer credit per our current agreement with OTC Veteran’s and Military Services office (HLT 101 and 19 additional credit hours)
  2. Receive credit for HLT-101 only (2 credit hours)
  3. Receive no credit for military service/training
