Seven Facts You Must Know Before Going Back to School

It isn't just the financial benefits that make earning your degree faster, easier, and for much less money. You have a lot of other things going for you when it comes to educational benefits. These range from Upward Bound to free exams to earning credit for your military experience.

Get credit for your experience

Military experience is one of the few legitimate areas where you can earn college credit for life experience. The American Council on Education (ACE) has evaluated most of the military ratings and schools to document that they are equivalent to college courses. They have also evaluated military ratings and done the same. The end result is that you may already have a ton of credit waiting to be used!

How much credit could you have already earned? It depends on your military occupation, your certifications, your schooling, and your pay grade. While it is possible to only have a few credits, most people I know have earned around 60 credits.

A real life example

I had 72 credits, which was more than what was needed for an associate degree. The challenge was that I knew an associate degree, especially an AS degree with a focus on nuclear technology, would add little to my resume when I got out of the Navy. If I wanted to advance beyond being a technician (after a decade of hands on I was ready for something else), I needed to earn my bachelor degree. It took me a while to find the right program (we'll save you this trouble), but I started with 60% of the required credit. Hmmm... take a few exams and grab an associate degree, or go for the gold and earn my bachelor degree.

Don't worry, this isn't a mystical process. It's all part of our program, and we'll help you determine how many credits you really have.

Upward Bound

One question we hear a lot is "I don't think I'm ready for college." That may be true, but you shouldn't let that stop you.

What we have found is that most people are able to earn their college degree. Some people may need to spend more time studying than others. Some may graduate with higher grades. You may need to learn better study skills or do some refresher studying, but earning a degree is most likely within your ability.

We include a lot of study resources to help develop your learning skills. These range from time management to speed reading, and are all designed to help you be a better student. But veterans and military have another free resource. Upward Bound is designed to help you with rusty academic skills: math, science, language, English, etc...

Free exams for active duty military

This is a huge benefit. Civilians have to pay $100 per exam. This alone will save you over $2,000. Also, most base libraries have a text book section saving you even more!

You have nothing to lose and everything to gain

And with our unconditional money back guarantee, if you are not satisfied, we will refund your money no questions asked.
