Question
What is the SOC Degree Network System Credit Evaluation Supplement?

Answer

The SOC Degree Network System Credit Evaluation Supplement (Credit Evaluation Supplement) is a resource designed for use with the American Council on Education’s (ACE) Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services (ACE Military Guide). The Credit Evaluation Supplement contains tables that suggest appropriate mappings to SOC DNS Course Categories of the following: • Subject Area terms contained in service school and occupational exhibits in the ACE Military Guide— listed in Section 1, ACE Subject Area Terms Mapped to SOC DNS Course Categories • ACE-recommended credit for nationally-recognized credit-by-examination programs including College- Level Examination Program (CLEP), DSST, and Excelsior College Examinations (ECE) / UExcel®— listed in Section 2, Examination Credit Tables • Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) courses—listed in Section 2, CCAF Course Mapping Table DANTES Independent Study Course Codes/Subject Areas—listed in Section 2, DANTES ISC Code Tables for associate and bachelor’s degrees The mapping of ACE Military Guide credit recommendations to SOC DNS Course Categories should optimize the academic placement guidelines of ACE Military Guide-recommended credit toward SOC DNS degree programs. College counselors and evaluators are encouraged to consider these recommendations when evaluating and applying credit to degree requirements appearing on Student Agreements. The recommended placement of these credits appears on the Joint Services Transcript Summary page.
