New Deal Offered Tyndall Personnel Beginning today, Tyndailites can earn a two-year degree from Gulf Community College withdut having to complete all required work in residence. According to Education Services officials, the college has agreed to offer the Ser\'icemeir.'< Opportunity College program. If a participant in this unique program completes 15seinester liours at Gulf Coast, the college will accept all required course work from other colleges and award liie participant an associate degree. The Servicemen's Opportunity College (SOC) program originated in an effort to solve the educational jiroblems confronting many active duly persons in obtaining the educjitional goals. The key problem is ofti'ii i)a.sed on forced mobility. The SOC i^-ogram is tailored to enable servicemen or women and other mobile persons to continue their education without interru|)tion when transferred to other geographical areas. In addition to allowing maximum credit for service-connected courses and experiences, Gulf Coast will take the initiative in assisting the student to obtain a degree even after he leaves the vicinity of the SOC in which he began his studies. The concept of SOC includes granting credit for examination programs, service schools and even service experience where there is a credit relationship between the training already acquired and the technology being pursued.
