After completing two courses at Kaplan Online, I feel the course work is challenging and sufficient to give me the education I need to further my career.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

Getting both my AAS and BS here at Kaplan has been very hard work and very interesting. Kaplan is a great school but they really need to work on their FA department as over the four years I have been there many students have had many problems. I my self have ran into a problem here at the end of my BS and I pay not get to follow through with it all because of FA. I have done all of my AAS and BS in the Human Service studies and they do have many good things about the school. It is easy to get into once a week classes, the work is written in a matter that you can understand it and you know what you are doing. The staff is there when and if you need them for help.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

I appreciate the ability to work at my own pace and the support provided by the professors and the staff at Kaplan University. I completed a bachelor's degree there and the experience was so positive that I decided to continue my education in their masters degree program. They also offer a returning student discount of 20% to individuals who completed an undergraduate degree and want to go for a graduate degree. Additionally, the instructors are very helpful, are easy to get in touch with, are very understanding of the issues that adult learners face and will work with you to help you succeed.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2013

Kaplan Univeristy has given me opportunities and knowledge about my field of interest. I have learned so much about the public health sector and health care industry. The only negative thing is not being able to get that face to face interaction with the instructor and my classmates.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of Kaplan University- online is the ability to grown as an individual. The schools structure help me learn to manage time between social, work, and school life and have the courage to learn from others students (around the world) that have differnet notions about the buisness world. The professors are great! All my professors so far has helped my learn the material and give me an extension on assignments due to climate, personal issues, and etc. and are willing to help the students learn the material. The cons of the graduate program is the fast paced atmosphere. With online classes you have to be able to keep up. The class has one week to work on new assignments, which can be very challenging.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of my graduate program is that I am only taking one course per term so it allows me focus on one course at a time. There are no cons that I have came across so far. I have attended Kaplan University for my undergraduate and now graduate studies and I just love the school, faculty, and how flexible it is to obtain a degree with my University.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros to my graduate program is that, help is always available and lectures are recorded. My advisor is always readily available to help me and provide valuable information that benefits me. Professors are always giving great feedback and answers every question to the best of their ability. The Cons, education is not free

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2014

My graduate program truly challenges me to succeed and be the best student I can be. The only con I have is the student dispersement from financial aid. This is because they still deliver checks and do not offer direct deposit options.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of this program is the convenience of taking online classes. Two classes are full-time and if you have prior work experience or have taken courses at another institution you save money. The seminar is once a week and you can ask questions about that weeks workload. Also the professor has worked in your specific field and can give you insight on what to expect once you obtain your degree. The con of the graduate program in general is the funding. Some of the scholarships they offer are for undergraduates. Depending on the number of credits for each course, financial aid is just enough for one course.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2013

Kaplan was a good school choice for a Veteran who needs to work full time to support self and family. Its Criminal Justice program has been excellent with a balanced blend of challenge and accessibility. Its major weaknesses lie with some courses that are not degree specific ("Big Ideas in Science") that really don't belong in a 200 or 300 level University Curriculum, but at a lower level. I plan to continue with Kaplan's Concord Law School this fall. My goal is to complete my Juris Doctor and become a State Prosecutor or work for the US Attorney's Office.
