Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2009

I think you get most on job training, but college shows that you can learn and are trainable. Getting a degree is what you need to show your interest in a field and expand your horizon while getting that extra edge.

I enjoyed the online platform and learned a great deal from each course I took. I would get help from my professor whenever I needed it.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2013

The classes were great with professors that were very helpful. However, the advisers should have told me to volunteer in my area of career while finishing up school so that I would not be stuck between a rock and a hard place when I graduated.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

I enjoyed my experience at Kaplan, not only were the professors good, all interactions I had with staff were great. I felt informed with every decision I made regarding my education, I learned a lot and I was challenged. Although I chose an online school I did not feel as though I missed getting a quality education.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2012

What I found to be the best option as far as an online program was Kaplan. It allowed me to hold a full time job while also raising 3 children. I was able to get my Bachelors in 2 years. The program was computer friendly and the professors were accommodating. . I recommend this online program for working adults with busy lives.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2017

My first experience with Kaplan University online was with my BS degree in Human Services, then I went on to work on my Masters Degree in Health Education and Promotion, the professors are helpful, I could work mainly at my own speed and hours which was a huge benefit. I have enjoyed my time at Kaplan and the knowledge I gained there as well as through independent studies I feel that I can offer the participants of my non profit charity 100% to help guide them to health and wellness. I started my charity in September of 2016 and I am just now entering my final class of my Masters Degree so this year proves to be one filled with new beginnings and a bright positive future not just for me but for everyone whose life I touch.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

Kaplan university offers great opportunity for networking with classmates and professors. There is also great support through the different math, writing and science centers to assist you with doing well in classes. Each professor is very supportive and helpful throughout the semester in help you understand the assignments and work for th e semester. Kaplan also offers great webinars and career resources. I also love the support the disability resource center offers to those with disabilities. I have only had a minor issue with financial aid which was easily fixed, other than that I have have a great experience so far at Kaplan University and I am half way through my masters degree program. I look forward to the rest of my academic experience.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

The enrollment advisor was amazing and is the reason that I decided to pursue this degree! The support system at Kaplan is substantial and I feel apart of the community even though it's an online program. The teachers are very receptive and are willing to work with students to make sure their goals are met. The material is challenging in a positive manner and I feel that I am gaining great knowledge!
