Army Education Courses Give More College Credit!

The American Council on Education has completed their latest assessment of the Army's noncommissioned officer education courses, and has increased the recommended number of credits awarded for completing many of the courses.

These increased credits will help every enlisted soldier once they graduate from AIT. Taking all of the common-core courses, from Structured Self-Development 1 all the way up to the Sergeants Major course, can earn a soldier a total of 61 credits - about as much as two years of college. MOS-specific courses can help add to the number of credits earned as well.
