When you went through basic training and your MOS producing school, did you know you qualified for college credits? Physical training, first aid and rifle marksmanship — it all counts toward college credits through a program called Army American Council on Education Registry Transcript System.
AARTS is a transcript service that provides active, veteran, and retired Army, National Guard and Reserve members a copy of a transcript colleges evaluate for credit for military training that Soldiers have taken through their military careers.
Need a physical education class to get a degree? A college will evaluate an AARTS transcript and award applicable credit to military students based on going through basic training. The amount of credit given depends on the training a Soldier has had and how the school evaluates the credit.
Transcripts are available to all Soldiers and veterans with a Basic Active Service Date of Oct. 1, 1981 or later. Official transcripts can be requested through the online website at https://aartstranscript.army.mil. Requests are processed and mailed within two days to colleges, Army Education Centers, and employers. If you want a personal copy, it can be viewed on the website.
