What Is the MOS Promise?

The MOS Promise program is one of the ways AIU honors the unique, in-depth training and skills of our military students.

With AIU’s MOS Promise, students will have the opportunity to get maximum transfer credit for previous military training and experience on their MOS Code. This will help them save time and money as they pursue their education.

How It Works

AIU’s specially-trained Prior Learning Assessment team will review your past college, military and qualifying professional experience to ensure you receive all the credit you deserve, including:

  • Joint Services Transcript (with MOS, AFSC, or NEC)
  • CLEP and DANTES exams
  • Prior college coursework
  • Certifications
  • Prior work experience

AIU bases its assessments on recommendations from the American Council on Education (ACE).

For Example

U.S. Army M1 Armor Crewmen (19K-004) will automatically receive at least 36 credits upon review toward a Bachelor of Business Administration degree—20% of the total credits needed for that program. They could also be awarded additional credits for other training, certifications, and qualifying experience.
