G.I. Jobs Military Friendly School

For nearly ten years, G.I. Jobs magazine has set the standard for ranking America’s most “military friendly” employers and contractors and has set the bar for schools that recruit military personnel and veterans as students. The military and veteran communities look to the Guide to Military Friendly Schools as the trusted source to assist them in selecting the most appropriate academic institution, providing prospective military students information on which schools offer them the greatest value and optimal educational experience.

The Court Reporting Institute values your previous education, training and experience. If you have completed coursework at post-secondary accredited institutions or have applicable military training or experience, you may be eligible to receive transfer credits for corresponding courses at the Court Reporting Institute. You may also qualify to receive credit by successfully completing nationally recognized standardized tests, including CLEP, DANTES, and AP.
