Credit for Military Training

You Could Earn College Credit for Your Service.

Kaplan University recognizes the validity of military training as potential college credit. All military training that has been reviewed by the American Council on Education (ACE) and meets the requirements of a student’s undergraduate degree plan may be eligible for transfer credit. Please note that only transcripts received directly from Army/ACE or Sailor/Marine will be accepted for official review.

If you are interested in this option, send an official transcript of your training to the Office of the Registrar. Please see below for more information on how to request your military transcript.
