Transfer Credits Guidelines

For military students, the Office of Admissions awards transfer credit according to the guidelines discussed on Webster University’s transfer credits pages. In general, it is Webster University policy to accept credits earned from Professional Military Education (PME) institutions and those institutions fully accredited by a regional accrediting association for colleges and universities, provided that such credits have been earned through university-level courses appropriate to the student’s degree program at Webster.

Official military transcripts (joint services transcripts) must be submitted to the Office of Admissions for evaluation. Coursework recommended for academic college credit at the lower- or upper-division level by the American Council on Education (ACE) will be considered for transfer provided that the coursework is applicable to the student’s degree program. Admissions reserves the right to accept or reject credits earned at other institutions of higher education. Exceptions are considered for all military students.

Global Keystone Seminar, 3 hours  
   
GCP Knowledge Areas GCP Skills Areas

Quantitative Literacy, 3 hours.  Fulfilled by the CCAF Math requirement.  
   
Total Remaining Requirements: 24 hours. However, students may be able to complete in 15 hours if courses are selected strategically, since courses at Webster are coded to fulfill both a Knowledge AND Skill areas.

What is outlined above is the minimum expectation based on standard CCAF AAS degree requirements. For example, students who successfully complete foreign language credit toward program electives will have this fulfill the Global Understanding Knowledge Area and Intercultural Competence Skill Area.

Air Force Schools

This advising paper describes pre-approved graduate transfer credit from U.S. Air Force Professional Military Education courses as evaluated by the American Council on Education (ACE). Official documentation of an ACE transcript must be submitted with the Request for Transfer Credit form. This guideline applies to George Herbert Walker School of Business & Technology graduate degree programs.

The American Council on Education's Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services is the standard reference work for recognizing learning acquired in the military. Since ACE evaluations are subject to change without notice, please confirm course information and credit recommendations in the ACE Guide before submitting transfer credit requests.

Some USAF courses are not listed in the following chart because the ACE credit recommended is military specific and not relevant to Webster University programs and some credit hour recommendations are reduced to provide course substitutions or to eliminate course duplication. Other USAF courses are not listed because the USAF Air University is recognized as a "degree providing institution" and ACE does not provide recommended transfer credits. Please consult with the Webster University Office of Military Affairs with any questions or for any guidance.
