Texas A&M is looking to become more "military friendly."

The A&M system has announced plans to offer more online classes, easy credit transfers, and distance learning options for active duty military, veterans, and even their families.

The system hopes to achieve a "military friendly" designation based on standards the Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges has created by April of 2009. Just in time for the new GI Bill benefits that start in August.

Currently 1700 schools, colleges, and universities have the designation.
