Be aware of the lies about finding clinical site for you. The advisors are trained to lie to student that their is a clinical placement team that will help you find clinical site. I am not sure why they lie to students. But be AWARE you are on your own when it comes to clinical placement. They will frustrate you by not letting you take a clinical course if you found a clinical site because you want to take class out of sequence and because the clinical course was not the next course to take. They will make you sit out of the school for years until you find a clinical site in the course sequence. They don't care how long it takes for you to get your own clinical site but they will not let you take classes. They will frustrate you to find another school. Since you can not take class for many terms because you cannot find the clinical site. The frustrating thing is that you would have taken all classes and get to the end when you need to take only the clinical course as the last classes before graduation and you realized that you are on your own finding clinical site and graduation date prolonged and 2 years course becomes 3-5 years course depending if you can find your own clinical sites or find another school. PLEASE BE AWARE!!!!!!!!
Getting my Bachelors degree at Kaplan was great in educating me in the legal field. All the professors and staff are friendly, and care more about your success than their own. Kaplan made it easy for me to be successful in my full time job, and educational desires, as well as all other daily life experiences. Having the flexibility of work load requirements, was one of the reasons I chose to go back this coming January for my Masters degree. Being able to obtain the education needed to help others as a future attorney, and the curriculum choices offered, is the main reason I chose to continue my education for a Masters degree with the same school.
This by far the worst college ever to attend. They are the rudest, careless group of people that I ever had to encounter. Not to mention their stupid paperwork and deadlines. Not to mention the academic advisors you're on your own for any advise. This college is only about making money and can care less about the students earning a degree. I wouldnt recommend this college to my dog!! Stay clear and seek a college that cares about their students and not making money off them.
I received my associates degree in paralegal studies from here! No one respects this school I could not find a job in this field! There many schools that did not want to even except my credits! I had a horrible experience! I will not recommend there!
I began my Master in Public Health degree from Kaplan online this past July. I enjoyed my time in the two courses I took. I had the same professor for those classes and he was a fair grader but lacked a bit of direction during online seminars. Financial aid was okay, my aid was not processed one semester for some reason but they were quick to fix my mistake after I got in touch with the department. I have since withdrawn from Kaplan to pursue education at another institution. After more research, I discovered that in order to achieve certain certifications or jobs (specifically jobs with the government or at the CDC), you need to graduate from a program that is CEPH certified, which Kaplan is not. Just wanted to pass that info on to other students wanting to study Public Health and work in those sectors.
Some instructors are terrible constant conflicting information, programs do not work. Also the online sight is very confusing and grading terrible. Linux never works on my computer and writing class should be based off the instructor than the course materials, this is what I was graded on.
I graduated with 5 presidents awards, 4 Dean Lists and a GPA of 3.4, have not been able to get a job. This is not considered a accredited college/university. I was a single mother of 2 and worked full time while going to school expecting more when I graduated, but that has not happened however I am expected to pay back 68k in student loans. I have not problems if I was making more but I am not and cannot get into the field I went to school for. So many have been scammed. They should not be able to state that they are accredited when they are not.
I really enjoyed attending KU. I was able to complete my BS in health admin. I had no problems with enrollment, or financial aid. Everything went well. I liked the fast pace classes. It was difficult at first, but Once I got a routine down I enjoyed school. What I liked the most about the classes is that they gave you all the information, ie..answers to questions during class connect. It was then up to me to read, and explain what I have learned, ie..how the answer is incorporated with the lesson being taught. I remember there was a lot of reading. I can't count how many highlighters I went through. Overall very satistied.
Stay away from this school, I was attending for a good 3 weeks and from the jump the signs were not good, although the advisors were excellent , the financial aid team was horrible, had to call them just to make sure they were processing documents , & I would upload documents and one minute they are received and then approved and accepted and the next it's incomplete and I have to go reprint and re submit all over again which is very frustrating , but what made me not want to have anything to do with this institution is when my laptop friend on me and 3 days after being in constant communication with my professor and logging into the classroom on my mobile device and submitting one assignment I log on to see my seminar and all my classes had been dropped and I was no longer enrolled , I called and expressed what happened and had hard proof of communicating with professor and her saying it was ok for me to turn my work in later that week because of my laptop I was told there was nothing they could do about it and I would have to wait until next term to enroll, I was furious because not only did I loose the work I already did (with it being a 10 week class , 3 weeks worth of work was a lot ) for my 2 classes, but I would have to delay my degree progress , this school is all about money and not the students , I don't advise anyway to enroll here ,as soon as i withdrew I started at ashford university same day , experience has been more than fantastic. Please please run away from this school while you can..:
