  •  Joint Service Transcript (JST) 

The Joint Services Transcript (JST) is a synchronized transcript presenting data for the United States Army, Marine Corps, Navy, and Coast Guard. Each JST is “owned” by the service member's or veteran's specific service, so you will see each service's seal with the American Council on Education (ACE) seal at the top.

Once you apply for your benefits, the VA will send you a certificate of eligibility that spells out exactly what you are eligible to receive. Please refer to your ebenefits for documentation. This is the document you’ll present to the school certifying official  when you enroll for certification.
