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: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2015

I am in the Family Nurse Practitioner Program. I am liking it so far. There are some classes where the teacher is very involved and others where you don't receive as much input. The online program is very flexible for my schedule. I plan to graduate in 2015

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: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

I returned as an adult learner and if I had not chosen Kaplan University online I do not feel I would have been as successful. I recommend this school to everyone I know who is interested in returning to school.

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.
