Active Duty Military, Veterans
and Eligible Dependants


All Alaska Career College programs are approved for use by active duty military personnel and eligible veterans, and their eligible dependents. For information about education benefits including Active Duty Tuition Assistance (ADTA), Veterans and spousal tuition assistance (MYCAA) and Veterans Retraining Assistance Program (VRAP), contact the Veterans Assistance Department at the college.

All Veterans Affairs beneficiaries (except for the spousal “My Career Advancement Account MYCAA), are required to disclose prior military and postsecondary school attendance. Upon receipt of records the college will grant academic and financial credit where appropriate, and advise the student and the Department of Veterans Affairs in accordance with VA regulations. If credit is granted, the program may be shortened. Enrollment status is reported to the Veterans Administration.

VA regulations (Title 38, Code of Federal Regulations, Section 21.4253(d)(3) and 21.4254(c)(4)) require that ACC receive and evaluate prior credit for all students receiving education benefits through any VA education program. Evaluations must be completed on any prior college enrollments and prior military service through the evaluation of your military transcripts. Transcripts must be on record before a student will be certified for enrollment. Requested transcripts from prior colleges and the military must be submitted to the ACC Financial Aid Department. Alaska Career College will evaluate military course equivalency based on the ACE recommendation on the official transcript. Credit awarded through ACE evaluation is entered as TR on the transcript and is not calculated into a student’s GPA. See instructions below for obtaining military transcripts.

The USAF, through the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF), provides a transcript detailing ACE recommended credit. You will be able to obtain this transcript for military training and experience even if you have not attended classes at CCAF. To order an official copy and have it mailed directly to us, please download a CCAF transcript request and follow the instructions. CCAF transcripts typically arrive within 14 days. CCAF will send an official copy to ACC by mail.

A re-entering veteran student, who was required to withdraw because of active military status, will be promptly re-entered with no advance notice required by the student if re-entering within five (5) years of completion of service, unless unusual circumstances require the institution to admit the student at a later date. Re-entry will be processed into his/her same program of study at the same enrollment status and with the same number of credits previously completed. If that program is no longer offered, the student will be re-admitted to the program that is most similar in terms of content and credit hours unless the student requests admission to a different program. If the school assesses that additional academic preparation is required before resuming active enrollment, this will be provided by the college at no additional charge to the student. In all cases the student will be charged the same tuition and fees that would have been assessed at the time the student left school for active military service. Students may contact the Director of Admissions for more information about this policy and eligibility, or when ready to re-enroll.
