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

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-points
  • 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.
