Submit official transcripts from all prior colleges, universities, and training institutes that you have attended. This includes previous military training. If you have completed any Prior Learning Assessments (PLA), such as CLEP or DSST, have transcripts delivered directly to CUI’s records office. For Undergraduate students, we can accept unofficial high school and college transcripts, however, we need all official transcripts before we can articulate your courses and create a graduation plan before you enroll.
Submit your military transcripts with your admissions application. You may be eligible for college credit from going to your military schools (basic training, fielding of equipment, pathfinder, MOS/AIT, etc.) If you are currently active duty, reserve or national guard, you should request new transcripts to be sent to CUI after each military school you attend.

**If you are a veteran of the Armed Forces it changes your dependency status to Independent. If this is the only thing making you an Independent (i.e. you are under 24, not married, have no dependents, etc.), we must confirm that you are a veteran by obtaining a copy of your DD-214.
