EXCELSIOR COLLEGE by far--some 60K military grads...the most military friendly, accredited school and rated highly (see also Military.com and Military Times). We have several general officers and many E9s who graduated (BG Coots, Army Surgeon General in Europe is Excelsior grad)...we also have a new Veteran's Center and new Cyber programs and degrees, Master's program... I'm on the Alumni board so let me know if you have any questions. Visit: http://www.excelsior.edu/

I also have utilized both CTC and AMU, got my AA from CTC, my BA from AMU, and currently working on my MA from AMU as well, both schools are very military friendly and lenient on giving credit for military and life experiences. I never paid a dime to either school, I have either used TA or VA benefits for all three degrees.

I go to Penn State. I am out of state so my GI bill doesn't cover me fully, but the school pays the remainder of my tuition. (Yellow Ribbon Program). I pay $0.00 pocket costs, and get around 1100 for BAH. I have lots of veterans in my classes here. The majority are Marine Corpse veterans. There are other awesome programs for veterans here also. (Veterans get priority registration). There is also a VA clinic right here.

As for credits, if you pick the right degree program then you will get more credits. I.E. a former medic going into nursing will get more military credit then a former medic studying petroleum engineering etc... if you have any questions on using GI Bill or Penn state message me.
