Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2016

The professors are highly knowledgeable in their areas and provide a high level of experience for the information. The professors are understanding and willing to assist any student with any issues. There are many school organizations to join, extra services offered to ensure you get a quality education, and the cost is not too bad. There are not really any cons to offer at this point other than if you plan to learn online be prepared to learn and ask questions because it helps you. Do not hesitate to take advantage of the services offered by the school or the professors. Join some of the schools clubs or organizations. It has been a great experience thus far! Remember that you only get out of it what you are willing to put into it and you cannot blame anyone but yourself if you do not give it your best!

The program is still developing as new technology is developed. Diversity of specialized degrees is slow developing.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016

The Career Services offers many resources whether you're just starting in career or are a well-established professional. I am VERY impressed. Some courses will not have a seminar every week and I think since these courses are online, seminars should be required. While it is the students' decision to attend online courses, a seminar should be required to have a mandatory weekly discussion of the weeks assignments.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2016

I am on my fifth class in the Masters in Accounting and I love it. The fact it is on-line I have classmates from all over the United States and outside the US making it very global. We help each other out and the instructor are right there if we need explanations. The cons is of course is the cost, I am sure that is with every school. I finished my BS with Kaplan and I love the Graduate Program.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

My graduate program includes courses that are 6 weeks long. During these courses there is an abundance of information to lean yet, it is extremely impactful on my career. I love the accessibility of the program online. My professors and advisors are consistently encouraging and helpful. Overall, I am enjoying what I am learning and it is practical information. The one con is the learning platform which does take time to understand and adjust to. Time will tell what improvements can be made!

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of my graduate program thus far have been the convenience of going to school online, professors who are knowledgeable and helpful, and an adviser who works hard to stay on top of your schedule.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

One of the drawbacks of online education is the lack of face-to-face interaction with your peers. Some extremely smart people are simply not good writers, so it is hard to gauge how academically competitive I am with my classmates. It is also impossible to tell what future employers will make of an online degree, especially at the Master's level, so that is another concern I have with obtaining my degree online. However, I am at a remote location without a brick-and-mortar college within reasonable distance, so it makes sense for me to attend Kaplan University Online.

Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2016

I am enrolled in the Instructional Design and Technology Masters program through Kaplan University. Some of the pros I have seen are: flexible scheduling, extremely helpful faculty, the tuition is just about right, and the course work is challenging but not overwhelming. Some of the cons are: due to this being an online program, social opportunities and interaction time with classmates is limited. Another con to some may be, not enough time to explore all the information in each unit one might like to explore.
