- 4Nov 18, '13 by ratladySo I am in the military as a lab tech. I am going through a one week class so I can transfer back to civilian life. I had been e-mailing a counselor about what credits would transfer and she said they wouldn't because they were vocational. Well I just found this document showing my military transcripts and specifically says they are NOT vocational. Chemistry was in question and guess what.. it showed I have 16 hours of Chemistry! This is such a weight off of my shoulders.
