• Special Military Programs

    Kaplan University has developed or participates in various special programs for military and veteran students that can reduce time and effort needed to earn a degree, and reduce redundancies between military training and college courses. For some military occupations, this could reduce coursework by a maximum of 73%.*

  • Kaplan University has evaluated various military occupations and mapped them to specific degree programs, which helps ensure your training transfers to Kaplan University as college credit. Please note that you are not limited to these program options. Even if your occupation is not listed, your training may still be eligible for credit. All military transcripts will be evaluated for credit awards.
