Obtaining Your Military Transcript

Macomb, like other colleges, awards credit for your military service.  But first you need to request your military transcript and have it sent to our Records and Registration Office. 

To request your Joint Services Transcript (JST) or other military transcripts, use the links below:

The American Council on Education is an important resource for information on how to obtain and understand your military education credit, including CLEP examinations, JST, and DANTES.

Free Emergency Financial Assistance for Veterans:

Thanks to generous donations, free funding is available for veterans to reduce non-tuition barriers to education:

  • Textbooks and Classroom Supplies
  • Travel and Transportation Expenses (e.g. fuel costs, car repairs, bus passes)
  • Living Expenses (e.g. food costs, utility bills, childcare, interview attire, hygiene needs)

Application process for veterans who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces:

  • Fill out the Intake Form and submit to Student Options for Success (SOS).
  • Veteran and Military Services (VMS) and/or SOS will follow up to discuss needs and possible awards.
  • Veteran can be awarded up to $300 to assist with emergency barriers to education.

Priority of Service for Qualified Job Training Programs

“My brakes went out on my car and I had to borrow money to get them fixed. Veterans Services helped me get the funds to pay off my debt.  I have told two other veterans about Macomb.”

“Veterans Services assisted me tremendously by guiding me through the very complicated process of tuition assistance. (Compared) to my experience with other colleges, Macomb made (using my GI benefits) seamless and emotionally positive.”
