free college military


One quick way to earn college credits is to use the Army E-learning portal where members of the Army, National Guard, Reservists and Army civilians can earn credits by taking free online courses. There are more than 55 ACE approved courses for college level credit

To register for access, go to AKO at www.us.army.mil > Self Service > My Education > Army e-Learning Portal Page > New User Link

There is no penalty for failing a course test. The course tests can be taken as many times as necessary to pass the test with a 70% or higher.

Question: I've always been told and have read in many different places on the internet that E-Learning courses are worth civy ed. I have never heard of anyone actually redeeming the courses for college credit though. Have you done this or do you know anyone first hand who has?

I've been looking into NCI.EDU for sending my transcripts in. They charge around $200 and I have no idea, not even a wide ballpark range, as to how many credits I'll receive.

Any thoughts?

Have you, or do you, know anyone who has redeemed the E-Learning courses for college credit before?

I've been looking into NCI.EDU to turn in my transcripts but, am skeptical due to the $200(or there about) fee. I don't want to pay the $$$ if I only get 5-10 credits.

Any thoughts, comments?
