We were under the impression that this announcement from the DOD released June 28th, 2012 stated that: Defense.gov News Release: DOD Updates Enlistment Priority for Certain Education Credentials…
"Eligible students with diplomas from home schools, virtual/distance learning and adult/alternative schools, who score 50 or above on the Armed Forces Qualification Test (AFQT), will now receive Tier 1 enlistment priority."
Jonathan our High School director Brian Brown has sent out some emails to military recruitment contacts. We have not heard about any changes to the Tier 1 status since the announcement in June. Brian will confirm with me once he hears back.
I was also wondering the same thing. I did read the June 28th, 2012 News Release from the DOD as well, however, I called my Army recruiter today and he stated that anyone who receives a high school diploma via distant education/online will be considered as a GED and will have to get 15 college credit hours in order to enlist. Hopefully the military recruitment contacts will respond to the High School director in a timely manner.
Hello, We did hear back from a recruiter and the June 28th, 2012 News Release from the DOD is correct.
As long as the student scores a 50 or above on the ASCVAB, they are considered a tier 1 candidate. If they score below a 50, they are considered a tier 2. This information came from the Syracuse district recruiting office.
