- A maximum of 27 semester units of elective degree credit may be awarded for those service schools that the ACE Directory recommends for specific lower division credit, but for which the colleges of the District do not offer a specific equivalent.
- No. Grades and grade points will not be assigned to college credits granted for training or instruction through the military.
- Credit awarded for formal instruction while in the military is used in determining admissions eligibility at California State University per EO1036. However, each campus has the discretion to determine the extent to which units are applied either as major, general education, or elective credit. University of California may award credit for military service courses after a student has matriculated per UC Transfer Policy.
