Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

The program is online and many of the questions asked cannot be rated. I find the faculty to be extremely helpful, they go out of their way for their students and are helpful when dealing with the adult working student.

Degree: Psychology

Kaplan works with you no matter the situation. They want you to succeed and are willing to continue to work with you throughout your time there. Whether it is online or on campus, they give you the information needed to continue in your degree plan. The teachers and staff are helpful and knowledgeable and are easily reached.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel that they could offer more scholarships for the graduate programs. They are mostly just offered for undergrads. The classes are interesting and the discussions are worthwhile

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

I don't really have any cons at this time to disclose. A pro is the convenience of the education as I work full time.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2015

I love the fact that you can complete your master's program from your home. I do wish that there were on campus classes though. I miss pysically sitting in a classroom with desks and physically seeing my professor and classmates.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2013

I can honestly say, that online courses at Kaplan University gave me a new way of learning. The overall experience was great and different. It inspired me to continue my education and pursue a Master's degree in Psychology. I cannot think of anything that I would change about this experience.

The program is great because of its flexibility. Seminars on the class are available in various part of the day, or days of the week.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: well set up Cons: have to go out of state to do clinicals which is an extra cost for me working full time and having two kids on a tight budget

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2013

Kaplan was great choice for me, while working full time I was unable to leave to attend classes. I was able to attend Kaplan on my own time. I was given opportunities to complete assignments in a timely manner. I felt the teachers' were helpful and really understood what they were teaching.
