The Army is working on retention and training and will ensure that soldiers will receive college credits for Army training and education. This will allow soldiers to receive their associates degree in their first enlistment starting this year!
Following the very successful CCAF program for the Air Force, the Army training and education will be worth up to 45 credits towards an associates degree. Most degree programs require 60 so soldiers will have to work on the final 5 classes - but they will get 75 points towards promotion when they do.
Great news for all soldiers entering the military today and a solid way to recruit and retain more great service members.
