Our Commitment to Military Students

About Military Image Kaplan University supports our servicemembers, including Guard and Reserve, their spouses, and veterans. Learn more about our military college programs.

Our online format offers flexibility to help balance education with duty, family, and career.

We support our military in the following ways:

Military and Advance Training

  • Reduced tuition rates and fee waivers for military students
  • Participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program
  • Military-friendly change of orders withdrawal policy
  • Acceptance of military credits earned through DANTES/CLEP exams
  • Advisors specially trained to assist with military and VA benefits

Study While You Serve

We offer over 180 programs of study, most of which are 100% online. Undergraduate terms last 10 weeks and are structured so students take fewer subjects at a time, allowing for greater focus. Graduate terms last 6 to 10 weeks depending on the program.

New Classes Start Every Few Weeks

Kaplan University offers flexible deployment and leave of absence policies to accommodate the mobile lifestyle of servicemembers.
