CCP Releases Case Study Series Documenting How Military Training Applied as College Credits Saves Vets Time and Money in Pursuit of Their College Degree


College Credit Programs offers a patented process and technology platform that matches military and professional training to college credits honored at hundreds of regionally accredited colleges and universities and provides a degree plan with detailed cost breakdowns for programs to enable Vets to make their GI Bill benefits go further.

Reston, VA, November 13, 2013 --(PR.com)-- College Credit Programs has been tracking and documenting the success users of their program have been achieving and have released several case studies showing how members of the military both active and retired have been able to dramatically save time and money in earning their degrees by applying professional training received in the military as well as at higher-ed learning intuitions. CCP’s technology platform and customized service program has helped students earn over 2,917,696 NTE semester hours while saving more than $927 million in tuition.

Automating the Planning Process
Part of the problem with most higher education institutions is that they do not have time to help incoming students on what their professional training can be applied as in semester credit hours or for which degree path, it also cuts into the profitability of that institution leaving many applicants feeling like they are getting the run around, and in some cases as documented by newspaper articles, they are told they have to start over.

The challenge for individuals today is they need to find and contact schools that will (1) accept their transfer credits, (2) assess their work experience for credit (3) accept challenge exams for credit, (4) accept their military training for credit, and (5) allow students to earn the maximum amount of NTE credits to complete or earn their degree in the fastest method available, all while comparing all the credit hour and school fees at accredited institutions, and timeline to achieve their goal.

That is where the technology platform used by CCP comes in with their patented and copyrighted process issued under US Patented Process No. 6,789,089 B2 for “Automated Planning Process” in 2004. The technology was originally developed and used to automate degree planning for the training the military offered as evaluated by the American Council on Education (who started doing this in 1942) and giving college credits for military training. There are several hundred accredited colleges and universities who accept NTE credits and over 2,500 resources available online for students who use CCP’s services to fulfill their degree requirements from learning how to apply for tuition loans to taking tuition free classes and earning college credits.

Undergraduate Student Benefits
Undergraduate students pursuing an Associate or Bachelor degree using the CCP program averages a savings of $6,058.50 and applies 21 semester credit hours toward their degree from an accredited institution.
