Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2010

The great things about my graduate school were the availability of professors, other faculty and resources necessary to be successful online. A somewhat downside that can occur at any online school is the lack of motivation of students in assisting with group projects. There are however the flexibility in comparison to traditional schools where students are able to work at their own pace. The program I was in was intense but it was worth it. I think that the admission process was simple and occurred smoothly. The tutorial for the online class was not hard to follow and there was help every step of the way to get acclimated to the virtual classroom and discussion forums. Consistency, determination and time managements skills were a must to succeed.

Degree: Psychology

I love the opportunity to work on my degree from home. The live online seminars allows me the opportunity to connect with my instructors and classmates. The academic support. However, I have never been to happy with financial aid and their lack of detailed explanations.

Kaplan offers an educational program that enhances your knowledge and gives you realworld experience. There is a lot of writing with this program that can sometimes be overwhelming.

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2015

The only con that I have about my graduate program is having to pay for books. Each term I am having to pay hundreds of dollars to cover books. That is my biggest financial struggle with school right now. I received my bachelors degree with Kaplan University and loved that program. i am very excited to start my masters in just a few weeks!!

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2012

I still have mixed feelings about online schooling. It is different not being in a classroom, however, for the most part instructors try their best to make it a worth while experience.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

The online program at Kaplan University was easy to navigate and provided an appropriate amount of work. This program was geared directly to suit those seeking careers in the field of study and career placement assistance was available after graduation, which I did not need as I am continuing with a doctoral program of study and intend to work part time until it is complete.

This particular program is an excellent option for working students. It's flexible and convenient. Professors are always available and respond promptly. University support is also very prominent. The admissions process is quick and easy, your assigned adviser will help you every step of the way.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2010

I enjoyed being a student at Kaplan Online! The professors provided excellent course information, proven to be useful in other areas of life as well as catered towards the program effectiveness. Academic advising has been extremely supportive. I wish I could return to finish a minor in my MBA, as I do have a general MBA in Business Administration. Human resource management would complete my degree.

Degree: Legal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

The program is very intense and requires focus and attention to detail. The readings are very thorough and the corse assignments are challenging while increasing learning. The only problem I have had is that some of the Professors are difficult to reach at times or take a long to time to respond, if they even respond at all.
