American Council on Education's College Credit Recommendations
For USAIC&FH Courses
An evaluation team from the American Council for Education (ACE) visited the U.S. Army Intelligence Center and Fort Huachuca (USAIC&FH) from 11 through 13 June 1997 to evaluate 46 programs of instruction (POIs). Its mission was to determine whether the courses' contents equate to civilian college work and, if so, what amount of credit should be recommended for each course. The ACE team recommended credit for 28 of the 46 courses that they evaluated, but did not recommend credit for the other 18 courses because of the limited, specialized, or military-specific nature of those courses.
The results of this evaluation will be published in the 1998 edition of the Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services. The Guide is the standard reference tool used by the majority of U.S. colleges and universities to award credit for military education. Copies of the Guide can be viewed at the Education Center on your installation.
Keep in mind that the Guide is just that--a guide. The amount of credit awarded, if any, is entirely up to the college and varies among schools. Many of America's leading institutions of higher learning do not view military courses as academic "education," but as merely vocational training. The chart below details only the 28 courses the ACE team recommended for credit during its June 1997 evaluation.
