Direct Submission by Service Branch
You can also submit your transcripts directly through the processes outlined by your service branch. We have collected that information below as well as helpful notes and tips to make your process as smooth and seamless as possible.
- Joint Services Transcript
- If you are an Army non-commissioned officer and want to document Military Occupational Specialty occupational credit, you need to submit non-commissioned officer evaluation reports that show you held that job for a year in the appropriate rank.
- If you are an officer or warrant officer and do not have any prior military service or if you are a servicemember taking Army courses, you should go to the Army Education Center for a DD Form 295.
- You can use the Army Service School Academic Report (DA Form 1059) to document officer and warrant officer training courses; it must be mailed from the Army school or certified by Army education personnel.
- Many Department of Defense schools, such as Defense Language Institute and other military schools like Air Force Institute of Technology and National Cryptologic School, issue their own transcripts.
- If you attended any of these specialized schools, you need to request an official transcript from the school in addition to your other military records.

Note for Active-Duty Servicemembers
- You can receive credit by supplementing your military transcripts with the U.S. Department of Defense (DD) Form 295 Application for the Evaluation of Learning Experience During Military Service.
- You'll need to go to your local Education Center or Navy College Office for help with this form, and you may need to submit supporting documentation.
Substitutions for Military Transcripts
- In some cases, you may not have a military transcript. For example, you may have taken a course many years ago. In that case, you may submit Department of Defense (DD) Form 214 Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty if your military transcripts are unavailable. You should also submit Military Occupational Specialty and copies of non-commissioned officer enlisted evaluations.
- If you are an Army veteran, you may need to provide DA Form 2-1 (Army Enlisted). You should also submit enlisted evaluation reports.
- If you are a Navy veteran, you may need to provide NAVPERS 1070/604 (Navy Enlisted) or NAVPERS 601-4 (Navy Warrant and Limited Duty Officers).
- You may also request your military personnel records from the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration.
