    I received my Bachelor of Science Degree (Liberal Studies) from EXCELSIOR today and would like to thank the members of this board that helped me both directly and indirectly. I am a Master Chief (E-9) in the Coast Guard Reserve (just off 3 yrs active duty) and obtained my degree in less than a year without taking any college courses by using military ACE recommended credit and 18 CLEP,DANTES and EXCELSIOR exams. All 5 branches of the military have great college programs at almost no cost to the member.

    Congrats, O' Master Chief of Puddle Pirates! Fair winds and following seas...any plans to become also a Master of Science or Arts?


    Army 1983 - 1985
    USMC 1991 - 2000
    Now in the Army Guard
    I've worked with the USCG. It's a fine organization with a great bunch of people. They are, in fact, my favorite branch of the US Mililtary; my beloved corps of Marines notwithstanding.

    I plan to start on my Masters (LIBERAL STUDIES from EXCELSIOR in a few months while I am still eligible for the new GI bill (Title 10 callups). I would appreciate any info from anyone taking or completed a Masters from EXCELSIOR.

    Congratulations, Master Chief. My wife was a lifer in the Navy, retiring after 20 years as a HMC. She went through SIU at Carbondale, herself. She knows of many Excelsior grads in the Navy who went through the distance learning registered nurse program. Excelsior is a great choice for active duty military.

    It's nice to see an E-9 setting the standard for younger troops. I caused a tidal wave by being an E-6 with a master's degree...

    But...couldn't go the distance...had to get out.
