Topic: What requirements (educationally wise) do I need?


I'm planning on joining the army once I turn 18... I'm just wondering what I need like a G.E.D or something...

I've been working with the recruiters lately and I can answer your question. To get in the Army, you will need a diploma or a GED. A diploma will get you in just fine. If you have a GED, you will also need 15 college semester hours (basically one semester of college) before you can join.

That's how it is

no prob man...

One more thing on GED's. Having a GED will limit the jobs you can get in the Army. It's much easier to have a diploma.

Ummm Sir..... I just joined the army with my GED only and I didn't need any college credits at all I only had to score higher then 50 on the asvab which was 30 points lower than what I scored.....

About the jobs though.... GED has limitations

I scored 79 on ASVAB my councelor made special call and got me 13F

anyway if your a smart cookie like my GED should be just fine!
