I had a very good experience with Kaplan. At first I was worried because the classes seemed very introductory level. However, as the classes progressed I realized they keep you on your toes. There is a lot of work and they are not easy graders. It really came down to: Do you know what you are talking about? Did you do the required reading? Were you able to expand and apply your knowledge? If you are not a person who is willing to work hard to reach your goals or you are not a self-starter or you are not self-motivated then Kaplan isn't for you. Following graduation I completed by Behavior Certified Behavior Analyst certification and passed the exam the first time. I also carried on and am working toward being a psychologist. I can only comment about my instructors, but they were great. There was not one instructor who I questioned. They were all very knowledgeable and accommodating if you didn't wait until last minute. I can not comment on their financial aid services as I did not use them. I also did not need or use career services.
Experienced some extreme personal issues and had to withdraw. I had constant contact with the staff and was told I had to wait to withdraw needless to say I didnt withdraw in time. Then I got several emails about returning, I agreed completed the proper paperwork then was denied and they will not give me a reason.
They have the worst financial aide department. I'm trying to go to a different school and they wouldn't help at all!!!!!! I emailed and called every time and they were rude and non compliant with me. My financial aide advisor from the other school tried talking to them and they were being horrible to her. If your looking for a school don't choose this one worst mistake ever!!!!!!!
Plan in simple, do your research and read others reviews as the reviews are honest and consistent. Financial Aid gets zero stars and some instructions are the worst. Look elsewhere please or except poor quality. At least take heed if reviews. Please.
I enjoyed getting my undergrad degree through Kaplan. I really appreciated the online options and the flexibility it allowed. I also enjoyed the professors and the fact that I still, a few years later, keep in touch with a few of them. I have recommend this school to others and plan to continue to do so!
I am currently attending Kaplan. The instructors are the worst. My other teachers are ok, but some really don't care about your education. My teacher has a new grading scale every week and I truly feel like she is trying to fail me on purpose. I do not like this college. I do not reccommend it to students pursuing associates degree as we need instructors that truly care about our future rather than there money or bias opinions. Not a great school. I am having a really bad experience and they act as if you dont want to v
I vetted out other online schools. But Kaplan was highly accredited and anecdotally respected by unbiased academicians. I strongly encourage any and all allied first responders to attend their BS and Masters programs. The work load is quite a bit, but they will do all they can to support you. Boiler Up!
Nothing but liars who try to screw you out of money. Withdrawn from my classes because financial aid is not clear or helpful at all. I was very clear about my available hours and was harassed multiple times a day while i was at my job only to be told to repeat the same process 80 times and be billed for the classes i was not allowed to complete. Worst place ever basically feel like i was scammed.
You will get some instructors that have a proper teaching plans and some that do not have a proper teaching plan. Some instructors do not care about your education unless they are receiving a check of being your instructor. You cant basically go to them for assistance most of the time. The tutoring room is useless & limited most of the time. So it is rare that you will receive any help with any of your assignments. Also, Regarding the Financial Ad Office, I believe is full of bull crap!! They do not give you your proper funding. They lie to you about your Financial Aid. After you complete a certification with them they basically throw you away like a careless wolf. You mainly suppose to be receiving a career from the certification you get from graduating from here but that does not happen usually. It is really waste of time with this school. You will be put more in debt. I was told , that I will be receiving a 200$ check 30 days ago and no one from the financial aid has contacted me about it. ALL this institution cares about is the MONEY. They do not care about your education. Please do not waste your time. They will lie to you about your financial aid and not help when you need them to help you. I basically did all of my work through my classes on my own with limited of help. I truly feel like It was a mistake for me attending this university because also they have recommended for me to attend a club which is called The National Society of Collegiate Scholars, I had to pay 90 dollars to pay, which I believe this is a scam also because it has not done anything for me besides just give me a certificate of being a member of the program which I believe is absolutely nothing ! Thanks. Think before you attend here. If you do decide to attend here good luck & believe it or not I told you so!!
This degree did nothing for me. I graduated in 2016 and I still haven't find a job yet. The careers services department is the worst. They don't really try to help you find a job. I feel like this degree was a waste of my time. I'm very disappointed with attending Kaplan especially when my courses were so very informative.
