Military CLEP/DSST transcript issues
#1
I served in the military and took several CLEP/DSST exams using military funding as well as personally funding a few after I got out of the service. My CLEP/DSST transcripts are only showing the ones that I've personally funded, and the military funded ones are showing on my military transcript. I applied to a new school, and their academic advising department is saying they will not accept the ones on my military transcript, and they have to be on the CLEP/DSST transcript for them to be accepted. I'm getting the run around from CLEP/DSST, and they say the credits are on the appropriate transcript. Is it possible to get these listed on the regular CLEP/DSST transcripts? I've never had this issue with any other school, and I don't want to pay to have to retake courses I've already passed. Anyone have any insight?

The school in question is Columbia Southern University.

Hmm, can't you order CLEP/DSST transcripts and have those sent directly to CSU instead of having your military transcript sent in?

I also had difficulties getting the DSST information correct. I spent some time with and figured it out. If you scroll down to the Ordering Transcripts as Military, you can see the path you most likely need to go through to get the transcripts to display correctly. Good luck.

That's what I did. Instead of showing all CLEP and DSST exams on their own transcript, they have them split on 2 transcripts, based on how I paid.

Do you have a Joint Services Transcript (JST)?  https://jst.doded.mil/official.html

I completed many CLEP/DSST exams many years ago.  The results were immediately posted on  my Sailor-Marine American Council on Education Registry Transcript (SMART). The SMART has been replaced by the  JST.
