    Your combat arms or military police occupation could translate into credit toward an associate's degree in criminal justice at Kaplan University, reducing the credits needed to earn a degree by a maximum of 55%.*

    Protecting society is more than a career—it's a calling. Nobody understands that better than the members and veterans of our armed forces. At Kaplan University, we believe your military training should give you a jump start on your education. Toward that end, we have evaluated various combat arms military occupational specialties (MOSs) to help reduce the number of courses required for graduation.

    Military Police–31B: If you prefer to enter the bachelor’s degree, you may have earned up to 62% of the credit needed. Click here for more information on the Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice.
