Marines

Columbia College accepts American Council on Education (ACE) credit recommendations for all evaluated military courses and occupations. 

Columbia College is a member institution of the SOCMAR Degree Network System

As of March 1, 2013, the Marine Corps (along with the Navy and Army) transitioned from the previous transcript to the Joint Services Transcript (JST). The JST allows enlisted servicemembers who advance up-to and beyond officer status to continue to benefit from updated transcripts, in addition to standardizing transcript quality across all branches.

Other military documents may be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, but the JST is the only guaranteed transcript for evaluation. Contact MSC@ccis.edu with questions.

 Marine Corps Career Colleges Program (MCCCP)

Columbia College is proud to be one of six institutions chosen to participate in the Marine Corps Career Colleges Program, which is designed to help a Marine complete a college degree by utilizing the training and experience gained through their military service.
