Military Families Military Families

I am wondering if anyone or their spouse has ever run into this issue...

My husband has dual Associates degrees (CCAF - Community College of the Air Force) and as far as we have ever heard, every college accepts CCAF's.

Well DH is trying to enroll at USF (University of South Florida) to complete his bachelors (he currently has 96 credit hours) and they are giving him a lot of trouble.

They told my husband they dont believe they can accept his CCAF because the credits dont have a GPA (because obviously a certain amount are on the job training). We have never heard of this and were not really sure what to do. Has anyone run into this issue? They are basically telling him his associates degrees are worthless.

Some schools do not except military courses as college credits. The one here is doesn't except much but others have. Cochise is one that my husband has 2 associates through. They accepted most of his military training to get those degrees. However, he wants to get his bachelors degree at the local university where we are now and they basically told him he had to take everything over. Nothing really counted. :-/ When we get a little bit caught up, he's going to just do it with Excelior. Most like he'd just need to take a couple of classes and a Capstone (I think) with them.

ASU wouldn't accept many classes from my CCAF. It wasn't even a degree to them apparently. So, they may not accept your husbands.

True.  I had a ton and the only things that transferred was a waiver for my PE gen ed. . . .

My husband is Navy, but he did have credits through the Navy when he started college, and that included the "on the job" credits.  I don't know the specifics, but I know that he was able to use those that applied to his degree, I will ask him about it when he gets home tonight.

Yea they are basically good to put onto a resume and some courses may count but not a lot... considering most credits of yoru CCAF come through CDCs or as you obtain your skill levels.
