Credit Transfer to University of Nevada, Reno | Transfer student admissions
Military applicants for admission must submit the following documents to the Admissions and Records Office:
1. An official military transcript (Joint Service Transcript or Community College of the Air Force)
And one of the following:
- DD-214 (Separation report)
- DD-295 (Application for Assessment of Learning Experiences During Military Service) for active duty personnel.
How is military credit awarded?
Credit will be granted according to the following guidelines:
- Courses recommended for college credit at the lower or higher level by the American Council on Education (ACE) will be considered for transfer provided the courses are applicable to the student’s program of study at the university.
- Honorably released veterans will receive a physical education credit. A maximum of four semester credits will be granted.
- No credit is given for Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) programs.
Students may appeal the initial credit transfer assessment performed at the Admissions and Records Office by meeting with an academic advisor from their program of study. If the appeal is successful, the counselor will submit a college / major exception / replacement form for processing to the Admissions and Records Office. If the student does not agree with the assessment of a course by the faculty examiner, the student can appeal to the director of the department in which the course resides. The president’s decision is final.
Please note that military credit is not considered a “resident credit” or a four-year institution credit.
