So I’m currently an E-5 interested in going green to gold on the active duty option. I’m trying to make my packet as competitive as possible. I am currently using AMU for my last 18 credits to finish my associates. My worry is that the credits from AMU will not transfer and with the Active Duty option for green to gold I only have 24 months to graduate. Does anyone have any knowledge or experience when transferring credits from AMU to other colleges. Yes I’m aware that personnel on here are not the admissions department from the colleges I just want concrete experience or advice.

The best advice is to contact the University’s that you wish to complete with and ask what of your transcript carries over. More often than not accredited university’s carry AA credits well.

He is right contact the school. They will let you know what they will accept. I had to go to three different schools to get my pre-requites, but I contacted the university I would attend to ensure they would transfer first.

AMU is a regionally accredited college. The requirement for commissioning are a regionally accredited college.

If you're planning on applying for G2G ADO, you have to actually find a college you want to go to, that has an ROTC program, and be accepted to it. The first step is to find the college you want to go to and find out if they will accept your transfer credits

Thank you. This post tightened my shot group a bit, appreciate the information. I was doing this a bit in reverse trying my best to graduate THEN, find the college but I am looking simultaneously now.

SGT (Join to see) something to consider-
It's not hard to get a bachelor degree, you can get a bachelor from AMU that would meet the requirements for commissioning. Once you commission you will almost certainly want to advance your education to a masters and it will be more difficult to work on your masters while you're a company commander or PL. You may want to get your bachelor first and then use ADO to pursue a masters

SFC while I agree that this is definitely true, the older I get the less and less my likelihood to actually follow through with this becomes due to becoming more and more integrated into the NCO core and more bogged down from the meaningless taskings and monotony of the Army. While this is not a negative thing, I feel that maybe if I use all of my energy while I'm in my prime to push for this later on I'll have invested my best years into being what I really wanted which is an Army officer. I really enjoy my job in the Army and I do have a sense of fulfillment BUT if I want to continue to be in the Army I have to change over to the officer side. Those two additional years may not be a lot to attain the bachelors but the additional stress may be unwarranted and turn my hair into salt and pepper before its time.

I can’t see why you wouldn’t be able to transfer your credits. AMU is a well known military friendly school and I’m sure G2G would accept all credits from there. A better place to ask this question would be on the Facebook G2G ADO page. I joined it a few months ago and there’s lots of people there with experience and knowledge. Thats a good place to start so check it out. Here’s the link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/ [login to see] 62379/?ref=share
