Joint Services Transcript

The Joint Services Transcript (JST) has replaced the Coast Guard Institute Transcript, the Army/American Council on Education Registry Transcript System (AARTS) and the Sailor/Marine American Council on Education Registry Transcript (SMART). JST is an academically accepted document approved by the American Council on Education (ACE) to validate a service member’s military occupational experience and training along with the corresponding ACE college credit recommendations.

To verify previous training and prior credits, students must obtain official transcripts from all schools and colleges previously attended.  Students will receive Veterans Administration benefits for one term only if all transcripts are not submitted to TCL’s Student Records Office during the first term at TCL

Please complete the application at  https://jst.doded.mil.  It will be delivered electronically to the Admissions Office.


Once it’s received by the Admissions Office, it begins the review process at TCL. Your transcript will be routed through the academic deans and the registrar. In 2-4 weeks, check your WebAdvisor account to see if and what experience has earned credit.


If you are unfamiliar with how to request the transcript, please contact the Military Coordinator  at cwelsch-copeland@tcl.edu and request a transcript to be sent to TCL.
