Please note the Military Crosswalk for Occupation/Course and NECC Equivalency does not include all possible Military Educational Experiences that may be evaluated for academic credit at Northern Essex Community College. 

Steps for Evaluation of Military Transcript/JST:

  1. Request your Military Transcript/JST.
    • To retrieve your Military Transcript/JST, go to the appropriate website below and print out a Military “Individual Transcript”.
      • Get your Joint Services Transcript here (except for Air Force).
      • To obtain an Air Force Transcript: Students can order an official CCAF transcript by logging on to Air Force Virtual Education Center (AFVEC). Under “Self Service”, select “CCAF Student Services”. Proceed to CCAF Online Student Services and select “Order a Transcript” from the Transcripts dropdown.
      • BOST Transcripts can be obtained by contacting: Broadened Opportunity for Officer Selection and Training, 197 Elliot Avenue, Newport, RI 02841-1623. Commercial (401) 841-1623, DSN: 948-7948.
      • DD Form 295 – If you are unable to obtain one of the transcripts listed above, active-duty personnel should submit a DD Form 295, Application for Evaluation of Learning Experiences during military service.
  2. Complete the request form and upload documents.

      The Credit for Life Learning Coordinator will receive your Military “Individual Transcript” for evaluation and posting of credit and will follow up with you and the college’s Veteran’s and Military Services Coordinator.

      Important: The Academic Placement & Testing Center can use your “Individual Transcript” for the purpose of review only. Understanding what credits will be recommended will be important during the academic advising process. The college will post credits to your official NECC transcript upon receipt of your “Institutional Transcript”. Please be advised that in some instances the Academic Placement & Testing Center will request the assistance of faculty members to review transcripts. Therefore, you should request both forms (Institutional and Individual) transcripts as early as possible.

      The grade of S (Satisfactory) is assigned to all credit awarded for military training or standardized testing.

      Transfer of Credit to Four-Year Institutions

      The policies governing the acceptance of credit awarded for military experience toward satisfying degree requirements vary among the degree-recommending colleges. Your credits will count toward your Northern Essex Community College degree/certificate. If you plan to transfer, the college to which you transfer may perform its own evaluation of your military credentials.
