Joint Counterintelligence Training Academy (JCITA)

The maximum transfer credit award possible from this specific internal recommendation varies based on the course(s) completed; individual transfer credit award will vary based on the requirements of a student's selected degree program, any additional documents submitted for transfer credit evaluation (TCE), and the University's TCE policies.

Any credit awarded from this internal recommendation is considered nontraditional transfer credit.


Undergraduate students must be pursuing one of the following programs at the University:

  • Any undergraduate level degree program

Students are most likely to maximize their transfer credit award if they are pursuing the following program:

  • Bachelor of Arts in Intelligence Studies


  • A student has met the terms of the agreement and is eligible for possible TCE review if they completed a specific course listed in the table below through the Joint Counterintelligence Training Academy (JCITA) during the indicated effective dates and they have not yet had an Initial TCE completed.
  • If an Initial TCE has already been prepared and the student completed the specific course through the JCITA during the indicated effective dates after the official evaluation was completed, they can send in the updated paperwork. A TCE Update Request Form must also be submitted to initiate the review process.
  • If a student changes their degree program, they are eligible for a review of their JCITA certificate(s) for possible transfer credit.
  • If a student has already had an Initial TCE completed, their documentation has already been reviewed, and no additional paperwork is to be submitted, they are NOT eligible for this internal policy.

Students must send in a copy of their certificate(s) of completion from the JCITA along with a TCE Application. Documentation of successful completion may make a student eligible for the following transfer credit recommendations depending on their specific undergraduate degree program requirements:

Please note:

For those students who are not pursuing one of these programs or that have taken a course outside the effective dates listed for this policy, we are required to follow the American Council on Education (ACE) recommendations for awarding transfer credit. Credit must be evaluated by ACE and recommended for undergraduate level credit in order to possibly apply toward an undergraduate degree program at APUS.

This internal recommendation policy is valid for the programs listed which may be reviewed each catalog year and credit recommendations may change if the programs or internal recommendation policies are altered and/or re-evaluated.
