Military Transcripts

Purdue awards undistributed (elective) credit based on years of service. These credits are in blocks of three hours. Your major department, represented by the academic advisor, will determine how these credits can be used. If you have 1 year of service, you earn 4 credits (3 + 1 hours). If you have more than 1 year of service, you earn 8 hours (3 + 3 + 2 hours). To verify the years of service submit either your DD-214 or your Leave and Earnings Statement (LES).

If you have any college-level work, request an electronic transcript be sent to The following links are for military-related transcripts:
