I know there are schools and classes from JKO and other sites like that have classes and course worth college credits, but was wondering if there is anywhere that dictates what classes value more, I.E., instead of elective credits that actually give credit for that topic. I know it varies between colleges and between national and regional accredited colleges on what military classes count, but if their is some kind of list or anything of that nature that may help.
P.S. I am aware and have done CLEP classes as well, so to save you from that. TIA

SGT (Join to see), https://www.acenet.edu/Programs-Services/Pages/Credit-Transcripts/Request-Transcripts.aspx is a good place to start. They have an FAQ that answers lots of your questions on how they come up with credit recommendations. They also have a list of colleges that will award credit based on the ACE transcript ($)

They have a handy search tool that lets you find military courses you have attended and what the credit recommendation would be. For example, in the case of 12B ALC phase 1:
Credit Recommendation: In the lower-division baccalaureate/associate degree category, 3 semester hours in explosives and hazardous materials handling and safeguards and 1 in military science

None of the classes are automatically worth college credit. There are some classes that your college may grant credit for, if your college recommends that and if the degree program you're in accepts it. If it's not recognized by your degree program, it's not worth anything.

Story of my life. Got 107 credits recognized when I applied for a bachelors program at AMU, but only applied 63. Three full semesters of extra work over three years of TA to cover that back up..

Google "Joint Services Transcript" and login. You can also send that particular military transcript to any accredited school.
