Vocational And Technical Education

Herbert Said:

Early Army Discharge To Go To College?

We Answered:

Starts with a 4187. Here's the blurb from AR 635-200. Not going to be easy in a shortage or critical MOS, and it's only a 90 day drop.

5–16. Early separation to further education
Soldiers may be discharged or released from active duty for the convenience of the Government, up to 90 days before
ETS, in order to attend a specific term at college, university, vocational school, or technical school.
a. Soldiers serving initial enlistments of less than 3 years, members of the ARNGUS or USAR serving on ADT, and
former senior ROTC cadets ordered to active duty because of breaches of contract are ineligible for separation under
this paragraph.
b. To qualify for early separation, eligible soldiers must—
(1) Not be mission essential to their assigned organizations, as determined by commanders concerned.
(2) Clearly establish that the specific school term for which they seek early separation is academically the most
opportune time for them to begin or resume their education, and that delay of school enrollment until normal ETS
would cause undue personal hardship.
(3) Provide a statement from an appropriate school official (for example, a registrar or director of admissions)
indicating acceptance for enrollment (without qualification or in a probationary status) in a full-time resident course of
instruction. The statement must also reflect that the latest acceptable registration date for the school term falls within
the 90–day period preceding the soldier’s ETS.
(4) Show that they are able to pay, or have already paid, school entry fees.
c. The college or university must offer courses of instruction leading to an associate, baccalaureate, or higher degree
and must be approved by the Department of Veterans’ Affairs. The vocational or technical school must offer a course
of instruction of no less than 3 months’ duration and must be approved by the Department of Veterans’ Affairs.
d. The effective date of early separation under this paragraph normally will not be earlier than 10 days prior to the
date classes convene, except when soldiers may be separated up to 30 days prior to the date classes convene if
evidence is submitted that the 10-day period is clearly insufficient. This is not intended as authority to permit
separation a full 30 days prior to class starting date in every case but to provide a reasonable latitude in justifiable
cases to authorize separation on a date that will give the soldier adequate time to register and enter the school on time. Examples include soldiers returning from overseas and those who must move their families to the school location.
e. Accrued leave will be used to the maximum extent possible, as transition leave, in conjunction with early
separation under this paragraph.
f. For characterization of service, see paragraph 5–1.
g. Commanders specified in paragraph 1–19 are authorized to order separation under this paragraph. The criteria in
chapter 1, section VII, will govern whether soldiers will be released from AD with transfer to the IRR, or discharged.
h. Combining this paragraph with other early release programs to effect separation more than 90 days before ETS is not authorized.

Lorraine Said:

Is a degree worth it or is a certificate from a technical school a better idea? ?

We Answered:

You should be able to get a certificate from a community college in many fields. The advantage to getting the certificate from the cc, rather than from a trade school, is that it's cheaper and often more reputable. A lot of trade schools have questionable reps with employers. Be cautious.

That said, you really do want a degree. Most employers today want a degree, even for fields that didn't require one in the past, such as office management. But for office management, an associates will usually be fine for most jobs - some require the bachelors, but for most, the associates, plus your experience, will be fine. And you can always get the associates first and then, if you see the need and have the inclination, go on for the bachelors.

You can also speak to your local community college about getting a certificate first, and then going on for your associates, if you still have the desire. Can the classes you took toward the certificate be applied to the associates, for example? That'd be ideal.

I think of an associates degree, for a person in your field, as being insurance. Far too often, employers who don't know you will look at your resume and use your lack of a degree to rule you out of contention for their position. Don't let them! Even being able to put on your resume:

Education: Westchester Community College, Associates Degree in Business, in progress.

Will be of significant advantage in a case like that.

No matter where you to go school, try to go someplace that is regionally accredited. This type of accreditation means that most employers recognize their degrees as genuine, and the credits are eligible to transfer to other schools (so if you did decide to go on for your BA, you could.) A lot of trade schools are not regionally accredited, but some are. Many trade schools are nationally accredited, which isn't enough.

All community colleges and state colleges are regionally accredited, and again - cheap!
