Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2014

Kaplan is a great University for continuing non-traditional students. Student life is flexible around one's personal schedule and although there isn't a classroom with one on one contact with professors, you feel a sense of authenticity in their online demeanor. Professors are not just about giving grades but making sure you learn and take away not only knowledge but a life's lesson. The only con I have about my graduate program is how fast pace it is but, when I really look into it, that's what I need at this time in life.

Great School, faculty, and great support system. The Students are Incredible; the Team work and support definitely helped me excel. And it is necessary when taking online courses. Time management is important and support is not only needed from other students and faculty, but friends and family as Well!

Pros about the graduate program at Kaplan University is that it can be done on line and convenient. Cons like any other student would report is that is expensive and very time consuming.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

The instructors encourage interaction among the classmates. The comments posted by the instructors are informative and meaningful. A number of the clubs are new so I didn't participate in them. They did have a variety to choose from though.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2014

I loved the online program at Kaplan University. The professors were awesome and always willing to assist whenever I needed answers. I enjoyed being challenged for a change. The professors are not easy by any means, and it made me rise to the challenge of maintaining a 4.0 GPA for the duration of my education, thus far, I have only 5 more classes to complete and I still have a 4.0.
