UT says many former military are the best of the best students, but for some reason they seldom seem to stay until graduation. They say they don't feel welcome at the university. UT does not understand why. Could it possibly be because they get crap for transferability from UT with their military credits?
Now, most state two year degrees get you automatically transferability as junior in your field. Not so for the military. I have known former solders with a military associate degree get less then a semesters worth of credits transferred into UT.
I have been trying to work with UT to get the same thing for those in the military with 2 year degrees that other two year colleges grads get.
So far, No dice from UT.
UT, how bout some love for the military guys and girls? You may not be able to get as much of their GI bill money but your graduation rates would go up.
