Back to School

I was pondering CT generation and how to give people a couple more skills without resorting to Mercenary style CG. Here's a quick post on what I have:

University: Characters may attend college upon mustering out. It's assumed the service gives them a loan and in return they forego one mustering out roll.
Enrollment: +8
DM +1 if Int +8
DM +2 if Edu +8

University lasts four years and imparts one skill from the Advanced or Advanced Education Table of the service. Note the character chooses the skill he wants.

Honors allows a second skill to be chosen. Optionally +1 Edu or Int may be taken instead of a skill.
Honors 7+
DM +1 if Int +8
DM +2 if Edu +10

Really mean refs can give the character a survival roll. Failure means the character is not dead per se but thrown out for whatever reason you can think of or just doesn't make it academically.
 Survival +4
DM +1 if Int +8
DM +2 if Edu +10
