Hello I am an MP in the army reserves currently obtaining tuition assistance I was wondering what is a good online nonprofit college that they give credits for military service I prefer it to be non proctor for exams but that does not really matter. I want to major in business or maybe information systems, anything that is useful. I currently hold 9 SH in my JST transcripts. I have also heard that there are courses in ALMS they count towards college credit anybody has experience with that thank you

Avoid for profit schools and consider public universities online (e.g. Arizona State, Penn State, etc.). Although you are considering college for enlisted promotion points now, you want to have transferable credits after eventual ETS or retirement.

Based on your JST report, talk with your education counselor about which credits transfer over. Most likely it will transfer to a basic degree, such as an Associates Degree in General Education. Most of the military training you do & schools will take up most of the elective credits, meaning you would have to do a certain amount classes such as core (math, English, etc) to complete the degree.

It’s a win win situation, you train and do what you need to do in the military and it compensates to civilian education in addition to 2 promotion points per credit hour (which is usually 3). Just keep in mind of the degree and where you would like to head in your studies later in life. I hope this helps.

If you need any other advice or tips I’d be glad to help or help you find the answer.

So you want a degree without having to do the work. Sounds about right for a specialist
