TROY Welcomes Students from the National Guard

Troy University has proudly served members of the United States Air and Army National Guard for more than 50 years. Currently, in addition to working with members of the Guard who are completing degree programs, the University also plays an active role in the pre- and post- deployment Yellow Ribbon Re-integration Program.

The core goal of the partnership between the University and the Guard is to meet the educational needs of our guardsmen and women by offering a broad range of associate, bachelor and master degree programs through the four TROY Campuses in Alabama, the university’s network of Student Support Centers and through TROY Online.

TROY offers over 100 fully online degree programs with flexible start terms.

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 MOS, the Joint Services Transcript (JST) or CCAF Transcript, 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, transfer credit may be awarded for the successful completion of programs of study for Professional Military Education.
