    question for all of you

    my boyfriend is in the army nationl guard. he is just in training right now. he asked me to find out how many college credits he gets. before he left he was told up to 14 and then when he got there they told him none. does anyone have any idea how many college credits he would get? anything would be helpful..... Thanks...

    Uhh...I don't think he'll be getting 13 credits. You didn't specify what kind of training he is in, so it's hard to say. Besides, it's up to his college to decide what they want to grant him credit for. For example, they might give him 1 elective CR for marksmanship and then another for phys ed for his basic training. It won't be much, I can assure you that. I remember my Drills saying that you're practically halfway to an associates just by being in the army. Not true. I think I got like 3 or 4 credits for all my military crap.

    Here's a website that spells it all out: https://www.cool.army.mil/

    I agree with tiaboxa. I was in the ARMY 11 Bravo (Infantry) and I only got loike 9 credits, and they are worthless.

    Every school evaluates differently but the credits they do grant you are usually lower level..... Phys Ed, Computer skills, etc. The longer you stay in the service the more you earn. Each promotion level gives one or two more credits.

    He won't know until he applies to a specific school....but boot camp and infantry training won't be much. If he has a specific skill (i.e. computers, etc)....he may get a few more.

    Def not 12 for sure.
