Crown promotes a military-friendly transfer policy by accepting military transcripts (AARTS, SMART, and CCAF) and additional prior learning assessments (CLEP, AP, and DSST). With a large amount of elective credits available in the online bachelor's programs, these transfer credits can often help fulfill the elective requirements. When working through the enrollment process, be sure to have all your transcripts sent to Crown to maximize your previous learning.
