Transfer Credit - to have your military transcripts evaluated, please send an official copy to the office of Registration & Student Records at Sinclair. You will be notified once the transcripts have been received and again once they have been evaluated.
Due to the nature of the course or the description provided on the transcript, it is sometimes difficult to equate academic courses. Frequently, after the completion of a formal evaluation, students can present additional information and meet with the relevant department chair/faculty to discuss the scope of learning done and request a re-evaluation. In this situation, students can contact Prior Learning to inquire about the results of their evaluation and present any additional information.
*Special note for students interested in Aviation (FAA) courses. Due to FAA regulations, these courses cannot be automatically awarded or transferred. To remain complaint, many of these courses require a departmental assessment exam be passed prior to being able to award credit. Interested students can contact the Aviation department or their Academic Advisor to initiate this process.
Prior Learning Assessment allows students to demonstrate learning done outside of the classroom for possible college credit at Sinclair. For a complete overview of all PLA options and policies, please review the PLA website.
Military-specific considerations by type include:
Standardization of transferrable military credit is an important initiative in Ohio, and there are searchable sources that can be used to determine if equivalent credit has already been identified.
Military Transcript Equivalency Database provides an unofficial guide to see what the most common transferred classes from your Joint Service Transcript (JST) and/or Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) transcripts
Military Transfer Assurance Guides (MTAGs) provide a statewide guarantee that certain types of military training, experience, and/or coursework align to existing college and university courses and will be awarded appropriate credit. Using the information found on the military transcript, students can search existing MTAGs for possible matches at all Ohio public institutions here.
