Default Nuke School College Credits

Hi I was told by my recruiter prior to signing the contracts that going through Nuke school there would be opportunities to earn college credits. If this is true how many are available and what is the process in getting them? All answers are appreciated.

I would go to nukeworker.com
They have so much information just on Navy nukes there, including a huge list of colleges, and the amounts of transfer credits they take from powerschool.

I know Thomas Jefferson university gives around 80 transfer credits from powerschool. leaving you with very few classes needed to have an associates in applied science:nuclear energy.

Good luck fellow future nuke! Maybe we'll see each other around!

Technically yes you get a lot of credits, but you will not get a good job with a degree from one of the schools that takes a lot of nuke credits, you are better off taking your newly developed study skills to a real school with the gi bill

Or aim to finish your undergraduate in your first duty. Use the GI Bill when you come out for a Masters...
