US Service Academies
All of the US military service academics are regionally accredited universities. Coursework will transfer using the same guidelines as any other transfer institution.
Most US Air Force airmen are enrolled in Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) to document their training. Order a CCAF transcript as part of your admissions process and complete a Request for Evaluation of CCAF Credit form with your academic advisor.
