Keep Track of your Military Education Credits
Did you know that every military course that you took while on active duty or in training was recorded on a website that you can access? Did you also know that colleges, including DCC, and universities across the United States will evaluate these courses and some will give you credit for the schooling that you have already had while in the service. If there are courses you know you had and they do not appear, there is even a procedure to get those courses entered on the website, to include the courses you are taking now. Check it out. Go to this website and register into the S.M.A.R.T system to keep track of your education at one website.
