Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

Great programs, great professors who worked with students to make sure they understood the course and work. Did not like the ebooks but got used to them by getting a second laptop to read them. Enjoyed all the professors and classes.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

A pro of my graduate program is its flexibility and being able to do my work when I'm able to. As a single mother working full time it is essential for me to have a flexible schedule to meet my children's needs. A con of my graduate program would be the lack of interaction between my professor and peers. Unlike a traditional classroom I'm not able to walk up to my professor after class and ask for help.I also don't have an opportunity to meet my classmates and work together on assignments.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2015

Kaplan U.'s online programs are fantastic! As a stay-at-home mom to 3 (two having special needs), this is simply the only way I could gain an education and give us the chance at a life we truly deserve. I am not afraid to work for anything, as long as I have the chance to do so. I've already received my Bachelor's from Kaplan and are in the beginning courses for my Master's now. The pros are: Flexibility, accessibility, and enrichment. Cons are: well...none! If you simply can't attend physical classes then an online program through Kaplan is a viable option for you!

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

I work full time and have a family so the online classes at Kaplan work the best for me. The staff has been great and very responsive to every question I have had. I do wish they offered more scholarship and grant opportunities.

Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2014

My graduate program at Kaplan University has become personally an enjoyable career improvement experience in many aspects. Having certain doubts, at first, in the quality of an online graduate program; this concept rapidly shifted, has provided a unique, challenging, and excellent learning opportunity. In addition, with-in this type of learning environment (online) it will establish professional competencies required in performing as an educator and/or as Instructional Technologist in the near future.

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.

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.
