Military Transfer Credit

Military Transfer Credit may be awarded for undergraduate students accepted to Kennesaw State University Fall 2012 or later who have served in the U.S. Military and who desire to have their military training and experience considered for transfer credit. Students may have the option of accepting or declining up to 12 semester hours of undergraduate elective transfer credits toward a degree program, if applicable. Students must submit official JST (also known as AARTS or SMART) transcripts and the Military Transfer Credit Agreement Form to the Office of the Registrar Graduation, Audit, Transfer, and Evaluation Services (G.A.T.E.S.). The deadline to submit this form is the last day of drop/add during the student's first term of enrollment at Kennesaw State University.

    • Transfer credit will be awarded from official JST (also known as AARTS or SMART), or Coast Guard transcripts utilizing ACE Guidelines. Military training and experience with a credit recommendation at the lower-division and upper-division baccalaureate degree category level is evaluated.
    • Deadline for students to Submit the Military Transfer Credit Agreement Form and ALL military transcripts is the last day of drop/add during the student’s first term of enrollment at KSU.
    • Once a decision has been made, it cannot be reversed because the amount of transfer credit determines financial aid eligibility, including both federal and state financial aid guidelines. Per these guidelines, transfer credit may not be accepted after the last day of drop/add.
    • Military Transfer Credit Agreements submitted and/or requested after the last day of drop/add during the student’s first term of enrollment at KSU will be denied.
    • Acceptance of Military Credit toward a student’s degree program may affect financial aid eligibility. Questions should be forwarded to the Office of Student Financial Aid.
