Transfer Credits

In each of the undergraduate degree options available at TROY, there is scope for the award of transferable college credit based on an evaluation of the member’s rating, the Joint Services Transcript (JST) and the recommendations of the American Council on Education (ACE). The ACE recommended credits, combined with results of CLEP and/or DANTES exams taken, can significantly shorten the time frame for reaching degree completion.
