    the education center had.

    Veterans are eligible for college credits in PhysEd (usually 2 years), Management, Bus Leadership, etc  added to the skills acquired in job training and on the job experience.

    If you've balanced a checkbook or operated a cash register you could pass Acct101.

    I enrolled in a college in Honolulu while still in service with only a couple classes needed for a BA in Business after taking all the tests that were available at the time.

    There's one point not addressed in the website above that could really make the difference for a student wanting to be accepted at a higher level for study. The class credits are awarded for each class; i.e English, Math, Basic Sciences, etc. But there is no grade recorded.

    The new student need only take a few safe classes and pay attention in class and get good grades. The first grades applied to the transcript will determine the GPA. Take one class and get an A and you have a 4.0 GPA.

    Maybe someone we know will hit the lottery this weekend!

      It's not just for vets. My comment tended to lean that way because of my personal experience with CLEP.
