Health Sciences Bachelor's Degree Completion Programs
Just as your military training was able to significantly reduce the courses needed for your Associate of Science in Health Science, it can also shorten your path to a health sciences bachelor’s degree. If you have completed your Associate of Science in Health Science at Kaplan University, are a 68 MOS, and have a skill level of 10 or higher, you may be able to achieve your bachelor’s degree with as few as 10 additional courses. This represents a 32% reduction in the number of courses you will need to complete the program.

What if I Already Have an Associate’s Degree From Another Institution?
If you have completed your associate's degree at another school and would like to pursue a bachelor's degree program, you may still be eligible for credit based on your military transcript.† Please speak to an advisor for additional information.
What if I Don't Have an Associate's Degree?
While you can enter the bachelor's degree program directly, we recommend you determine if credit has been evaluated for your military occupation for the associate's degree. You can then pursue the bachelor's degree program upon completion of that degree. Speak with an advisor for additional information.
