Military Transfer Credit Appeal
If your military experience did not transfer as expected, or you feel that there is a class in your Degree Plan for which you have already met the learning outcomes, please contact your Military Advisor. He or she will assist you with filing for a Transfer Credit Appeal with our Registrar.
Prior Learning Assessment (PLA)
Military students may also receive credit for experience that is not reflected on your transcript. DU will consider: career, personal, job-related, and community participation. A portfolio must be submitted for credit to be considered. Please read the requirements and consult with your Military Advisor if you are considering a PLA.
Testing for College Credit
Active duty personnel may take approved tests for college credit at no cost. Veterans may be reimbursed for approved tests through their VA funding. A list of available equivalency tests is available on the Testing Center resource page. For more information, please visit the Testing Center.
