NEW RESOURCE TO HELP YOU GET THAT COLLEGE DEGREE

The Association was recently contacted by Col Jim Hendrickson, USAFR (Ret). He is an advocate for the military and veteran students in higher education. While everyone can enthusiastically agree that transfer credits from military training and prior college continue to be a drain on financial resources and lost time there has still not been a comprehensive process created to address this issue.  Credit transfer is still left to the gaining school and the individual student to resolve.  His non-profit will give military students the leverage and tools that are critical to positively impact the interaction and ensure previously earned credits are fully awarded. If you have taken college courses & never finished that degree or if you have attended military education & not received college credit I recommended you contact OPERATION GRADUATE to help you get that college degree.
