Typically, the top thing that disqualifies most Soldiers from doing Green to Gold is academic eligibility requirements. Your college credits must be toward a four year degree. Two reasons why APSU is a top Green to Gold location:

- Service credit acceptance: they value your military training and will credit you accordingly. Other schools may not.

- Military-friendly: taking classes part-time while a full-time Soldier is hard. APSU has a lot of flexible options that fit your schedule. And you can be confident that the classes you take with APSU will be credited towards a four year degree, which is what you need to meet your goal of doing Green to Gold.
