Army & GED

The Army no longer offers a GED program. You have to have 15 college credits if you don't have a H.S. diploma. In that case all you need is 15 college credits if you can find a school that will let you attend without a GED. Those college credits must be from an accredited college & must be level 100 ("English 101" for instance) & leading to a degree.

Beware of online courses & check with a Recruiter to make sure that it's an acceptable college. Many have taken enough credits & maybe even have a degree but found that it wasn't acceptable to the Army. Too many "diploma mills" around.
