Army Cut off scores
Civilian Education
Here is still another area where you can stand
out and be different. Most soldiers overlook this
opportunity bucket and are late to the party and
delay starting college coursework.

Civilian Education offers a Kings ransom of up
to 135-points for SGT E-5 and 160-points for
SSG E-6. This represents about 17% and 20%
of the total 800-points available, respectively.

I recommend that all soldiers, immediately upon
arriving at their first duty station, enroll in their
first college course. This allows for the process
to begin, even if super slow, so that you wake
up as an E-4 or E-5 and have this bucket well
under control.

If you have already started college courses or
have earned a degree, congratulations! You are
already ahead of the curve and have a distinct
advantage as you get into the widow for
promotion to SGT E-5 or SSG E-6.

Here are some specific ways to earn Civilian
Education promotion points:

  • Each Semester Hour Completed = 2-points
  • Degree Completion on Active Duty = 20-
  • CLEP Tests = 2-points per credit hour
  • Technical Certifications = 10-points each
    (Max 50)

All in all, there are many ways for you to build a
portfolio of promotions points that will be the
envy of your buddies.
