Learning Center Experience
If you received military training as an allied health professional, you may be within four courses of earning your associate’s degree.*
We have evaluated specific allied heath specialties (MOSs/NECs) and mapped them to Career Focus Areas (CFAs) within the Associate of Science in Health Science degree plan. This helps ensure your prior military training transfers into Kaplan University as college credit. Additional opportunities to earn credit, including challenge exams, could bring your goal even closer.† See below for a list of evaluated MOSs and NECs and examples of how they may transfer into the degree plan.
If you transfer in the maximum number of credits (70 quarter credit hours toward the 90 quarter credit hour degree) the remaining courses could be completed in just two 10-week terms (taking two courses each term). This could put you within 5 months of earning a degree.

The objective of the Associate of Science in Health Science is to further the educational and career goals of military students who have already received military training for medical and health science occupational specialties. The curriculum focuses on the important role of professionalism in health care, general education, and industry-related technical information and builds on students’ prior military medical training to help them achieve an associate’s degree. Enrollment in the Associate of Science in Health Science is limited to active-duty servicemembers of the U.S. military, members of the Reserve or National Guard, and veterans of the U.S. military.
The program provides a broad education and allows students to select coursework in health science subjects including anatomy and physiology, chemistry, nutrition, pathophysiology, clinical skills, health education, and health informatics. The program includes a capstone experience designed to prepare students for work in various health science fields within the military and could help students meet educational requirements for advancement. Graduates may also pursue a number of entry-level careers within the broad field of allied health should they return to civilian life.
The Associate of Science in Health Science program consists of a minimum of 90 quarter credit hours. Students enrolled in the program who are active-duty servicemembers must satisfy at least 20 quarter credit hours at Kaplan University to be eligible for graduation. Students enrolled in the program who are veterans, members of the National Guard, or reservists not currently in active-duty status must satisfy 23 quarter credit hours at Kaplan University. In addition, the capstone course must be completed at Kaplan University. Upon successful completion of the program, graduates will be awarded an associate of science degree. Please note: the 90-credit total represents degree requirements before military credit is applied. If you reside in Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, or Illinois there may be additional state required courses.
Challenge exams allow you to demonstrate proficiency in the learning outcomes of specific Kaplan University courses by passing a comprehensive test. These exams can be used to waive prerequisites, determine class placement, and earn college credit. Not all courses provide this option, and challenge exams taken at other colleges or universities will not be accepted. Available challenge exams for this degree program are listed below.
