Fayetteville Technical Community College has an online search engine that will allow you to immediately find out what credit you have earned. Go to http://www.faytechcc.edu/military-veterans/credit-for-military-training/ to see exactly what you have all ready earned!

There is a scholarship for anyone out of state so no extra fees or money out of pocket. You can contact Kristina Noriega [login to see] for immediate help. There is no red tape at FTCC just a great degree and respect for their students. No pressure and the degree is fully transferable!

Leave it to AMU to present the best college advice compared to all universities. I just got an e-mail from AMU. . . and another bullet on my to-do list. *sigh*

I didn't see the JST or VMET mentioned, though.

SSG(P) (Join to see) - AMU and my school support JST. It's not new as much as a revamp on ARTTS.

Nice points! I will discuss the JST briefly on Part 2 of this piece among other military spouse-related resources. Let me know if you need any help with your "to-do" list :)

For those of you with credits to be transferred to a new school, here are a couple additional points to keep in mind.
1. Course work typically only lasts for around 6 years or so or until the university you attended changes its course catalog. So, its important to get the credits transferred to the new university as soon as possible.
2. Almost all universities will take credit transfers as long as the prior university was regionally accredited (national accreditation can be a little iffy). However, almost all universities will require you to take the last two years worth of classes from them (because they want your money).
3. Credits transfer but not the grade and that is important for those of you worried about your GPA. Why? Because if you are required to take a course you are afraid you will do badly in, you can take it at another school and transfer the credit to your current school while not taking a hit against your GPA. For this reason, it might not be a good idea to maximize your transfer credits up front.
