To gain the most from your transfer credits, you need to request your military transcripts and have them evaluated by University of Maryland University College. In addition, supporting documents are sometimes needed.

Being proactive with your military transcripts and other documentation helps you enroll in the right classes for your first semester. Many branches of the military offer direct ways to submit transcripts.

Note for Active-Duty Servicemembers

You can receive credit by supplementing your military transcripts with the U.S. Department of Defense (DD) Form 295 Application for the Evaluation of Learning Experience During Military Service. You'll need to go to your local Education Center or Navy College Office for help with this form, and you may need to submit supporting documentation.

Substitutions for Military Transcripts

In some cases, you may not have a military transcript. For instance, you may have taken a course many years ago. In that case, you may submit Department of Defense (DD) Form 214 Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty if your military transcripts are unavailable. You should also submit Military Occupational Specialty and copies of non-commissioned officer enlisted evaluations.

  • If you are an Army veteran, you may need to provide DA Form 2-1 (Army Enlisted). You should also submit enlisted evaluation reports.
  • If you are a Navy veteran, you may need to provide NAVPERS 1070/604 (Navy Enlisted) or NAVPERS 601-4 (Navy Warrant and Limited Duty Officers).

You may also request your military personnel records from the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration.

I meet students every day who love UMUC before they even take a class with us. They know UMUC and respect it because they’ve seen us on base overseas.
