Sailors and Marines could soon be eligible for real-world college credit for all that classroom time they put into career training and professional military education.
Navy leaders are pushing to stand up the new Naval Community College by 2021. The school will offer Marines and sailors free associate’s degrees and college credits that are easily transferable to accredited schools across the country, said John Kroger, the Navy’s new chief learning officer.
