Is college credit in the high school bad for an NROTC applicant?


Not sure about other states, but in Washington we have a high school program called Running Start which allows juniors and seniors to attend a community college while in high school for no charge. If they go full time both years, they can graduate high school with their associates degree. However, my NJROTC SNSI mentioned something about this being an issue, and some being unable to apply for the NROTC scholarship if they take this route or have too many college credits. Is there anywhere online that elaborates on this or can anyone clarify what he was talking about?


Please Google ROTC eligibility. Also, search the forum. This has been addressed a couple of times recently.

Essentially, college credit earned prior to high school graduation does not count against you.
