How to Convert Military Time

Here is our simple online military time converter.

If you want to convert a standard time to a military time, then use the first converter.

If you want to convert a military time to a standard time, then use the second converter.

Type in your time - can either be in just hours and minutes, or it can be in hours, minutes and seconds.

The Standard time should be in the form:

- H:MM
- HH:MM
- H:MM:SS
- HH:MM:SS

Where H=hours, M=minutes and S=seconds

Examples of valid times:

4:37, 12:15:58, 11:35, 6:52:09

Make sure the "am" and "pm" label is set correctly (if you are using the first converter).

Now click the Convert button to convert your time.

Is noon 12am or 12pm?

By convention 12:00am is midnight and 12pm is noon.

However, it is usually easier to refer to the times as 12 midnight or 12 noon to avoid confusion!

The formula below will help you to convert from standard to military time.

Convert from Standard to Military Time

*If the hour in standard time is an "am" time:*

- If the hour is 12am, then it changes to 00.

e.g. 12:37am changes to 00:37

Otherwise

- Military time is the same as Standard time.

Remember to add the preceding zero if the hour is less than 10. Remove the "am" label.

*If the hour in standard time is a "pm" time:*

- If the hour is 12pm, then it stays the same.

Otherwise:

- Add 12 to the number of hours. Remove the "pm" label.

Examples

4:30am = 04:30 (or 0430) 11:45am = 11:45 (or 1145)

12:32am = 00:32 (or 0032) 12:15pm = 12:15 (or 1215)

7:55pm = 19:55 (or 1955) 5:12pm = 17:12 (or 1712)

This formula will help you to convert from Military Time back to Standard Time.

Convert from Military to Standard Time

*If the hour in military time is less than 12:*

- if the hour is zero, change it to 12.

Otherwise:

- Standard time is the same as Military time.

Remember to remove the preceding zero if the hour is less than 10. Add the "am" label.

*If the hour in military time is 12 or more:*

- the time is a "pm" time.
- if the hour is 13 or more, take away 12 from it.

Write down the new hour and minutes and add the "pm" label.

Examples

00:37 = 12:37am 07:42 = 7:42am

12:42 = 12:42pm 20:06 = 8:06pm
