Military Degrees and Programs

Purdue Global has a long tradition of supporting those who serve, U.S. veterans, and military families. We understand the demands placed on these deserving students and offer military programs focused on ensuring they get the most out of their education.

Through Purdue Global’s PME2Degree program, our average military graduate is awarded 55% of credit needed for an associate’s degree and approximately 35% for a bachelor’s degree.* The results are significant, and a game changer for servicemembers at all skill levels.

Meeting the Needs of Today’s Military

According to a Department of Defense report, the average time to earn an associate’s degree is 7 years for a military member. We value and support our military and veteran students, which is why Purdue Global’s military education programs are designed to reduce the amount of time needed to earn a degree because of the significant training and skills servicemembers already have.

All occupations in the U.S. Coast Guard have now been included in our PME2Degree program. Learn more about the programs for Coast Guard servicemembers.

Purdue Global also participates in Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) and Air University programs designed to simplify and speed up the process of earning your undergraduate degree. The General Education Mobile (GEM) program helps you make progress toward your associate’s degree. Our partnership with the Air University Associate-to-Baccalaureate Cooperative (AU-ABC) helps shorten your path to a bachelor’s degree.



Purdue Global has evaluated various military occupations and mapped them to specific degree programs, which ensures your training transfers to Purdue Global as college credit. Please note that you are not limited to these military 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. Please note the credit awards listed below do not include transfer credit.
