Kaplan University has been the perfect school for me to work on obtaining my master's degree in education. The instructors are knowledgable, accessible, and above all, very supportive. The workload is reasonable.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

My overall experience at Kaplan has been fabulous. From my financial aid officers and academic advisors making sure you stay on track with your degree I couldn't have picked a better school to complete my bachelors and eventually go on to my Masters degree.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2015

Kaplan is an excellent school with proficient professors. However there could be more of a hands on approach in weekly classes- more seminars to discuss the weekly course material. Attending any school at this level means for most a need to get the most out of our education. Sometimes as young college students in the beginning we are not as focused or as interested in the course work as we should be- however as we grow we want more need to obtain more be more in our work. This means finding a college that is willing to go that extra length and Kaplan is effective in this however they can provide maybe more in room discussions and classroom time. Overall Kaplan is a school with excellence and a dedication towards providing better education to their students.

Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros are that there is as much support as I need in order to successfully finish my degree. Also, the professionalism of the staff and understanding of my situation. Willingness to help me overcome the obstacles in life. The con are not seeing anyone face to face. I know their voices, but you can not beat looking someone in the eyes while talking.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

I enjoy the pros of having this program online because it allows me the time and access to keep things for me on a personal time level and to complete my schooling at night since I work evenings. It allows me to have the day as family time and to maintain the best studying zones able while completing my degree online. All the information appears to be at my finger tips and they tend to send me alerts and reminders to help correlate with my schooling and curriculum. However, sometimes it does appear tough to get some assistance during the night hours. Schooling for graduate level is expensive and I wish there were more graduate level scholarships out there for new graduate students.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

Informatics is a new field of study to most and Kaplan has provided a unique way to study this field, since I am a working professional, the online program woks great for me, the only drawback with online programs in general is the voice or face to face communication.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2015

Kaplan has been a great experience. I tested out some other online colleges and none of the interfaces were nearly as good as Kaplan's. They also provide a 20% discount for alumni perusing advanced degrees.

Degree: Public Health

The online program for Kaplan University is very flexible, perfect for someone with a full-time job. The professor for the course I am currently taking is very supportive and their online portal for classes is very easy to use.
