Graduate-Level Credit For Command and Staff College Distance Education Program

The University of Oklahoma, in partnership with the Marine Corps College of Distance Education and Training (CDET), now awards 15 master’s degree credits for the Command and Staff College Distance Education Program (CSCDEP).

This arrangement is a first for the Marine Corps as the University of Oklahoma will grant graduates of the CDET’s CSCDEP 8900 series, 15 graduate-level academic credit hours that Marines can use towards continuing their studies. 

The degree is a Master of Arts in Administrative Leadership (MAAL) and can be completed entirely online at a reduced tuition rate for military students. Only students who have taken the 8900 series CSCDEP without equivalency credit from the 8800 series program are eligible for this benefit.

For further questions please contact the OU Military Coordinator, Mr. Russ Tresner, at 405-325-1250, 800-522-4389, email at, or contact your Regional Coordinator. Additional information can be found at the OU web site
