Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

Kaplan's MBA program has been beneficial thus far. I'm into my 4th course and have had good professors and, for the most part, good classmates. Some fellow students didn't seem to be at the graduate level based on their work submitted, so it was surprising they were accepted into this program. However, the courses, the professors, the requirements, the textbooks and the work required in each class have been challenging and I believe appropriate for MBA and executive level learning. I have gained significant knowledge in areas of business in which I had little experience. I would recommend this program to returning students wishing to further their education and advance their career. Thank you.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

The good thing about the program is that it is all online so you have all week to complete your assignments. They also have a weekly online seminar which is unlike any other online courses I have taken.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

I feel like the Pros of my graduate program are the availabilty of having my schedule correlate with my work schedule. I am working two jobs currently and working nights with a child (1 year of age) and I feel as if this is the best plan for me to complete my MSN. The cons would be for me not being able to sit in a classroom itself to complete learning. So far it has been a positive experience however.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Kaplan University has surpassed what I had previously thought. They have thought of and make available to the students constant help, counsel, and support. They seem to be honest and straightforward.
