To recognize and reward the experience achieved by this group, we are proud to announce that we have evaluated every Coast Guard occupation to determine its respective contribution toward earning a Purdue Global degree.  These credits are determined prior to review of military transcripts.

About the PME2Degree™ Program

The PME2Degree™ Program is a holistic approach to providing the best education option based on individual goals and the most efficient path to achieve these goals.

  • An Option for Everyone: Every enlisted occupation in the Coast Guard has been evaluated at each level of service and mapped into various degree options. This evaluation also allows you to pursue a degree program that may not specifically be related to your occupation but is relevant to your ultimate career goals.*
  • Uncompromised Quality: The comprehensive nature of our Coast Guard occupational reviews ensures that the required outcomes needed to earn a degree are either achieved in military service or through the degree plan.
  • Built for Lifelong Learning: Purdue Global provides a continuous learning path, offering associate’s, bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees. Credits earned in any of our associate’s degree programs can be transferred into a Purdue Global bachelor’s degree program, and we will re-review your training to apply it toward the next degree level.
