Air Force

The Air Force uses the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) transcript for documenting ACE-certified military training and experience,coursework, and CLEP or DSST exams worthy of academic credit. CSU uses the CCAF transcript to determine whether specific training or previous coursework qualifies for credit toward a Waldorf College degree program.

Designate that your official CCAF transcript be mailed to:

Waldorf College

Army and Army National Guard

The Army uses the Army/American Council on Education Registry Transcript Service (AARTS) for documenting ACE-certified military training for academic credit purposes. CSU uses the AARTS form to determine whether military training and experience, course work and CLEP or DSST exams qualifies for credit toward a Waldorf degree program.

AARTS receives information directly from official Army military personnel records and contains the following: current rank, military status, time in service, current academic level completed, additional skill identifiers (ASI) and skill qualification identifiers (SQI), formal military courses, military occupational specialties (MOS) held, standardized test scores, and descriptions and credit recommendations developed by ACE.

To receive maximum transfer credits for your training and experiences, submit a current AARTS transcript.

  1. Visit the AARTS Web site.
  2. Fill in your SSN, birth date, and Basic Active Service Date (BASD) or Pay Entry Basic Date (PEBD) and click "continue." Note that BASD is for active-duty soldiers and PEBD is primarily used by guardsmen and Reservists. When in doubt, use your BASD.
