Question - if you are "metriculated" into a college and they accepted your academy and other life experiences for college credits BEFORE
the State deauthorized the college for Quinn Bill acredidation, do you lose out on those credits and money invested in courses already taken and have to start from scratch at a school that got acredited for Quinn ????
:?

No, if you matriculated prior to January 1, 2004, you can still skate by with the weak-ass "life experience" credits.

LOL! I was not intending to infer that life was easier or less of a learning experience than college is.

I am just annoyed with the 25% pay boost that some officers receive for the degree they "earned" by not setting foot in the classroom. You may be a better officer if you have more life experience as opposed to one with a degree, but Quinn benefits are supposed to reward those who put the effort in to go to school.

No disrespect meant to any of you who truly earned your degree with academics and a reasonable mix of experience credits.

I luckily enrolled in a non-approved school before the deadline, but I'm waiting to see what happens now, if you get your bachelor's from a non-approved school, but then go and get your master's from an approved school. I wonder if you get the money? Anybody seen this addressed anywhere?
