College Credit for Your Military Service

Joint Service Transcripts (JST) is a computerized transcript system that produces official transcripts for Active Duty National Guard and Reserve service members, veterans and retired service members by combining a service member’s military education and job experience with descriptions and college credit recommendations developed by the American Council on Education (ACE). In addition to your name and SSN, the transcript contains the following information:

  • Current or highest rank
  • Military status (active or inactive)
  • Military Occupational Specialties (MOS) held Standardized test scores
  • Additional Skill Identifiers (ASI) and Skill Qualification identifiers (SQI)
  • Formal military courses
  • Descriptions and credit recommendations developed by ACE

To order your JST transcript, visit Select MidAmerica Nazarene University in Olathe, KS from the drop-down list of institutions as the school you would like to receive your official transcripts. Transcripts will usually be sent to us within 24 hours where we can get you on your way to becoming a Pioneer!
