CYPRESS, Calif., Aug. 24, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Trident University International (Trident) and the U.S. Army Recruiting and Retention College (RRC), based in Fort Knox, KY, have signed an articulation agreement that is designed to facilitate the degree completion process for service members.

Applicable to those at RRC who have completed training as Army, Army Reserve, or Army National Guard non-commissioned officers, this articulation agreement provides maximum transfer credits in Trident's Associate of Science in Professional Studies, Bachelor of Science in Health Administration, Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, Bachelor of Science in Human Resources Management, and Bachelor of Science Information Technology Management programs.

This agreement was finalized by Esmeralda Silva, Vice President, Strategic Initiatives & Government Relations/Compliance; Mark A. Weedon, National Director of Strategic Alliances; and Dr. Debra Louis, Dean, Glenn R. Jones College of Business.

"Trident acknowledges the educational value provided in this instruction at Fort Knox," stated Travis Allen, President & CEO, Trident. "The quality of these programs allows us to provide a shorter path to graduation. Trident is proud to continue supporting the military community."

The U.S. Army Recruiting and Retention College goal is to train men and women who are seeking to be qualified Army Career Counselors. Counselors help potential recruits and current soldiers with questions about joining, or re-joining, the service branch, and play a vital role in helping to build an Army made up of quality men and women who will make a lasting contributing to the defense of the United States.

The ability to search for these degrees on GoArmyEd is coming soon. Interested students should contact Trident with any questions they may have.
