English Comp I with a "C" or better from a regionally accredited college is still required.

Ok I just received an email from my career counselor yesterday. He has submitted my transcript and paperwork to HRC. So I am hoping that it will get approved. Do to the Government Shut down they were not allowing any reclass submissions. Or that is what he told me. I only have 5 more classes until I am done with my bachelors degree. So I am hoping that they will except me with everything I have completed so far. I was also told that the school seat will not be until Oct. of 2014 which is fine I will have my bachelors degree completed by then.

SPC Smith,

Although the grade requirement says SPC(P) to SGT non-P, I would still move forward with the request for 68V. That's not a huge priority.

Good luck.

Although this thread doesn't pertain to me, it's awesome to see that someone at the schoolhouse is reading and responding to these posts. Thank you Mr. Lopez-Martinez.

I appreciate the compliment. I know that there are many websites out there that are full of misinformation, causing unnecessary confusion and stress to our SMs. I try to find them in order to provide the most current information possible. If you know of any other websites that SMs use to get info on schools, please share them with me. I'll join those as well.

Do you think the program will ever open to SSGs?

We have had a couple of SSG's and even one SFC in all the years I have been associated with this program but they were all Army Reserves and special waivers had to be granted. However, this happened many years ago. None since the program became an associate degree producing school. Sorry.

Mr. Lopez-Martinez,
I was thinking about dropping the paperwork for voluntary reclass to 68V. How are slots looking for classes? Are "short fuse" seats a reality? I having been discussing the possibility with my wife and it might be the right career decision for me. Just curious, thank you.

Wildmojo,

We at the schoolhouse have absolutely no control, or knowledge for that matter, over how many slots are available. The Army's requirements for 68Vs ultimately dictates how many students are sent through the program. We only set requirements for admission, and the limitation on how many students we can accept per class. Your career counselor is the person to talk to.

Best of luck.

Mr. Lopez, currently in the Jr class at irtp, would you list what text books besides eagans that we will be using for the resp portion please? I'm sure everyone else on the thread would appreciate it! As will I! Furthermore, for all those interested in the program, just know that it is academically intense; however, the risk reward ratio is worth it. From what I understand its one of if not the only enlisted program to offer a degree. Just prior to starting the program ensure that you send TESC your transcripts and have an unofficial transcript on your person. If you're active duty already, I would recommend doing your pre-req's with Thomas Eddison State College. It really simplifies the process of transition.
