TROY Welcomes Students from the U.S. Army

 Beginning at Camp Rucker during the 1950's, the roots of Troy University's service to our armed forces were planted with the United States Army. Today, in addition to hosting an Army ROTC program on the TROY campus (since 1987), we are a proud partner with the Army in several initiatives including ArmyIgnitED; the Enlisted Education Program (EEP) of the College of the American Soldier, the Green to Gold initiative; and the ConAP program for new recruits. Troy currently operates advising and/or teaching centers on or near 10 Army installations in six U.S. states and one in Korea. TROY has campuses or support centers located on or near several United States Army installations including Troy, AL; Dothan, AL; Fort Benning, GA; Clarksville, KY; Fayetteville, NC; and Hampton Roads, VA.

Troy offers over 100 fully online degree programs with flexible start terms.

Transfer Credits

In each of the undergraduate degree options available at TROY, there is scope for the award of transferable college credit based on an evaluation of the member’s MOS, the Joint Services Transcript (JST) and the recommendations of the American Council on Education (ACE).    The ACE recommended credits, combined with results of CLEP and / or DANTES exams taken,  can significantly shorten the time frame for reaching degree completion. 

At the Graduate level,  transfer credit may be awarded for the successful completion of Professional Military Education programs of study such as Intermediate Level Education, Joint Special Operations University (JSOU), Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation (WHINSEC),  and the Army War College.
