Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2014

Kaplan University is dedicated to assisting students reach their goals. As a current student I expect the staff to not only assist me with helping me reach my goals but I expect them to provide me an education that will carry me unto the future. As a first time grad student at Kaplan, I am not able to evaluate the course, nor the staff at the school yet because this is my first graduate course at Kaplan. As for my experiences so far with the school, the counselor's have been very helpful and supportive with me.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2014

Kaplan University has made it possible for me to complete my Bachelors and working on completing my Master's degree while still working full time and being a full time single mom. Teachers are wonderful and I could not have gotten this far with my education if it were not for online degrees.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2013

Kaplan University's graduate program allowed me to continue working full time, and be a full time student. The online platform is convenient, and the instructors are ready to help students achieve their academic best.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros: Accessibility, Very nice and knowledgeable professors, easy support from Academic Counselors. Cons: Financial Aid is a pain to deal with and very late with education expense loans and responding on time. Changed up application and now will not give out education expense loans and limit what you can request. Education is very good but they offer no built-in certification programs or testing for their extreme high cost of tuition. They offer testing help at an ADDITIONAL EXPENSE THAT IS NOT COVERED BY LOANS. Half the classes in the graduate program have you buy books and online virtual programs and they really do not use them at all. I feel like I am not getting a quality education with the cost of education I am paying which is high. Still love the school and my degree was fast but they need to offer certification like Western Governors University.

Very flexible, easy to get in touch with someone for advising/technology help, instructors answer questions within 24 hours and are willing to help.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2012

I liked the fact that instructor communicated the information from the real world standpoint and were able to teach the material citing their own experiences. The one con is that the information delivered was online solely so communication was all internet based, so sometimes questions and answer were delayed a little.
