Sailors Gain Higher Rank Faster with Higher Ed Degree

Navy Times reports that “sailors with degrees are making rank faster than their peers each and every cycle, outpacing them because of extra advancement points from their degrees plus the benefits of more education, like better study habits.”

“In ratings where advancement chances are slim, the few points earned from having a degree is enough to make the difference for hundreds of sailors every cycle, new advancement data reveal. Earning a degree — or just studying for one, Navy officials say — gives sailors an advancement edge.”
