Education Helps You Advance Your Career and Improve Employment Opportunities

You might be wondering if earning a college degree is really worth the time and effort. You’re a hard worker and a fast learner; a piece of paper won’t change that, right? It’s true that earning a degree won’t make you a better person or change your basic abilities, but did you know that an adult with a bachelor’s degree earns an average of $23,000 more per year than an adult with only a high-school diploma? Now more than ever, earning a college degree is a solid investment in your future.

By taking CLEP and DSST exams, you can streamline your educational plan and earn your degree faster. Because you chose to serve before completing your degree, you probably have an advantage – the experience and discipline you’ve gained in the military are invaluable. Once you earn course credits through CLEP and DSST, you will have even more momentum to keep going and earn your degree.

Think of the opportunities a college degree brings. If you decide to pursue a field such as teaching, business management, or criminal justice, you can continue in your service to your community and nation. A degree can also qualify you for management and leadership roles. Offered in an array of subject areas, CLEP and DSST exams can give you a head start on a variety of career paths.

Don’t forget – DANTES will reimburse eligible Service members for the cost of the exams. Your first attempt per exam title is paid for. You owe it to yourself to prepare well for the next chapter of your life. Start today and check out CLEP and DSST exams.
