American Council on Education, Washington, DC. Office on Educational Credit.
Postsecondary educational credit recommendations for formal courses offered by the Air Force and the Department of Defense are provided in this first of a three-volume guide. (Other volumes cover courses offered by the Army and by the Coast Guard, Marine Corps, and Navy. See note.) Following brief sections on use of the guide, the formal course exhibits are presented. Each exhibit contains such information as present and former course titles, course number, location where offered, length of course, objectives, description of instruction and subject areas covered, and credit recommendation. Credit recommendations are given in four categories: vocational certificate; lower-division baccalaureate/associate degree; upper-division baccalaureate; and graduate degree. The credit is expressed in semester hours. An appendix includes an outline on the historical development of the guide, defines the evaluation procedures used to prepare the recommendations, and includes definition and guidelines pertaining to categories of educational credit and the semester-hour standard. The concluding two sections are keyword and course number indexes. (JH)
