The American Council on Education, ACE, maintains military registries with applicable ACE credit recommendations as a resource for colleges and universities. SCAD gives consideration to Sailor/Marine/ACE Registry Transcripts (SMART), and the Army/ACE Registry Transcript Service (AARTS). Credit is awarded if coursework is relevant to the student's chosen course of study and determined to be comparable in course content and level of instruction to SCAD's. Credit awarded by another college or university for SMART or AARTS transcripts is not transferable without proper documentation. Transfer credit from all sources (including SMART or AARTS) may not exceed 90 quarter hours.
