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.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I'm really enjoying this program. It is a great deal of work, and I feel like when I'm not working, I'm studying, but that's ok. A Master's degree isn't meant to be done quickly. It is meant to be done correctly and with much thought. It's a great program that I would recommend to anyone.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

I am an online student, campus life is not applicable towards me, so the ratings for transportation, surrounding area, social life and campus safety are not relevant. Overall my academic career at Kaplan University has been very rewarding. I have been blessed with professors who are knowledgeable and take time out for each student. The smaller class sizes are a plus. The only con about any online school is not having actual face to face contact with peers and the professor but technology makes up for it and it always helps to have a professor who goes above and beyond

Kaplan University Online offers a lot of great classes and professors. Online allows you to be able to keep your busy life going and still have time for school around your schedule.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

The ultimate pro is that I go to class when I want to, at the pace I pretty much want to go, and can wear what ever I want. The staff have been very knowledgeable.
