I have attended a number of schools in my military career. Because of all the moving, I had to continuously transfer from school to school.

The people who say they had problems are probably the ones who blame all their issues on others and never take responsibility for their own actions…… Remember, this school has been doing this for awhile, they understand the benefits and how to process those benefits, and so you have to use common sense when you read some of these negative posts.
All but one of my academic advisors was very helpful, and for the one, I got rid of her by requesting another. They provided me guidance on what courses of action would work for me and would get back to me within 24 hours of an email or call. Remember people, if you're truly dedicated to your education there are a number of schools to attend. For me, this worked best because they are regionally accredited and are military friendly. By the way, I have a number of job offers that pay over $70,000 a year when I retire from the Army
