I really like Kaplan as my college education institute. I did not have to be at campus and was able to work from home. I believe there are going to be many people that will be exchanged from one job to an internet job.

Overall, the school was beneficial to me earning my graduate degree online. I had some instructors that took the time to make sure I learned the material so that I would be successful in my career upon completion.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2014

My score may seem low but a few of these choices are not appropriate for an on-line institution of higher learning. Things like affordability of living, campus life, and transportation; among others can not be rated for there is no campus to report to, no living expenses to calculate, and no car to get into or bus ride to take. Everything happens where ever you are at the time. It is an excellent online program for me and the cost was a few hundred dollars less than the university where I received my undergrad, which is one of the reasons why I chose not to continue my graduate studies there.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2014

They only con to online education is the lack of social contacts. Pros for online education would be no need to fight for parking or having to walk across town to access classes; no standing in lines at the school bookstore; the flexibility to achieve at one's own level and speed. Kaplan is a great school- I completed my Bachelor's in Professional Studies here as well.

Degree: Legal Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

The University program and Professors are wonderful. Without Kaplan I would not have been able to complete my degree due to busy career. Only issues with Kaplan are with their business office/financial aid department. They really need to an upgraded system with options for direct deposit instead of "snail mail" and more reliable people dealing with billing and financial aid issues.
