Programs exist to provide Veterans with academic credit for their Military training and experience. Has this program helped you, or let you down? How simple or difficult was the process?

TSgt Joshua Copeland, whatever negative things people say about the Air Force, they cannot deny that the Air Force takes care of its own.

A few years ago, there was a push that died in committee to open up all services to our Community College. There are a few sister services members that have earned them while assigned to AF Units

Here are some options that I researched some time back.

Most on-line courses through Defense Acquisition University are undergraduate equivalent. American Military University has a program that takes some of those credits into a degree program.

The University of Maryland University College (UMUC) has several program worth exploring:

1. Experiential Credit Options - http://www.umuc.edu/undergrad/creditoptions/
2. Get Transfer Credit for Your Military Education and Training - http://www.umuc.edu/active-duty-military/transfer-credits/military-education.cfm
3. Credit by Examination - https://www.umuc.edu/students/support/exams/creditbyexam.cfm

For anyone who completed ILE/CGSC you may receive up to 15 credits (5 classes) towards a Master of Science in Administration. I am currently enrolled in that program.

If I may add, I found the transfer credit process with Central Michigan University to be quite easy and straight forward.

How? I am also currently enrolled at UMUC and am having zero luck getting my ILE credits transferred. I literally have 4 classes left...IF you count my ILE credit. I cannot get an coherent answer from anyone and have had CGSC send my transcripts twice.

I received alot of credits for my AIT. I was surprised how many people did not and di not know about these programs. It is up to us NCOs to make sure the younger soldiers understand these programs are out there.
