How easy is it for me to go back to school as a veteran?

You may find that your military experience has taught you valuable work and study skills unavailable to many civilian students. You may have learned the benefits of discipline, organization and accountability. Many times, your skills are so highly recognized that you may be able to obtain college credits for documented military experience. You may even be able to test out of certain courses.
