Academic Programs


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. 

 At the Graduate level, successfully completed Professional Military Education (PME) at the Marine Corps War College,  the Marine Corps  Command and Staff College and the Joint Services Operations University may lead to the award of transfer credit in selected Masters degree programs.  

Currently serving members of the Marine Corps, their spouses and dependents are eligible for the Troy Military and Family Scholarship that caps the cost of tuition at $250.00 per credit hour at undergraduate and graduate levels.
