Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

I am currently enrolled in the online Masters of Nursing program, and my experience up until now has been nothing but positive. The instructors offer great feedback and the workload is very manageable. I would recommend Kaplan to anyone seeking an advanced degree.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

Overall, I believe this Graduate Program is excellent. I just find it hard to get responses back from the Professors in time.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016

I have a demanding job and typically work second shift hours from 2pm-11pm monday through friday and random weekends. All other local school programs only offered Masters degree classes at night or on saturdays, which was not possible for me. Thankfully, Kaplan is able to provide me the flexibility of class schedules and online courses that allows me to continue to persue higher education.

It is great for a motivated individual who needs online classes, especially for myself who moves every few years. Great teachers and easily accessible from any location.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of graduate IT program is that with the rate of technology changing, my fields helps me to learn more and keep up with the latest. It's amazing how fast technology changes so my field gets me in the mode of constant researching and continued learning. As far as cons as concerned, the only thing that comes to mind is trying to keep up with the fast-pace.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

pros are the fact that you can do most online and therefore be able to work at the same time and take care of your family cons would be that you are not face to face with the instructors and therefore cannot ask any immediate questions.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

I completed one year of law school prior to joining the Kaplan program, I learned more and therefore, my knowledge was excelled among my fellow classmates. If I had not previously attended law school, the program would be much more difficult.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2011

I originally chose to embark on an online graduate program because I had just graduated with my undergraduate degree and it was time to search for jobs. I didn't want the hassle of beginning an on-campus graduate study, and then having to move to another location and transfer my credits to another institution. With the online program, I can pick up where I left off without missing a beat as long as I had access to an internet connection. With online programs, you do not get the face to face interaction with your peers and professors. The mandatory discussions were really time consuming as you were required to write your post and respond to at least three other students twice a week. It was especially daunting on subjects that were not of interest to you or don't really require a deep discussion.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel as if the program is excellent for mothers like me who are juggling children, work, and school. It allows time for you to be flexible and the professors are readily available. They do an excellent job at engaging you in conversation with your peers, and having thought provoking conversations. Some cons would be that you may run into trouble if you have a personal computer issue. It will always be good to have a backup computer or access to a computer lab.
