Kaplan University Reviews - Associate in Business
Review of Business Associate Degrees
I enrolled in this school because my job gives a tuition discount so I thought, why not? I was doing online classes, have only been here 10 weeks and they want 2,751$ or they will block my classes. I asked repeatedly if FAFSA would cover my tuition for the rest of what I owed. They told me, "yes yes don't worry about it everything will work out for you" NOPE! They blocked my classes and will not allow me to continue on until the balance is paid, wasted 10 weeks and now owe a ton of money. Would not recommend, money hungry and horrible staff.
I did not know what to expect when I enrolled at Kaplan, but it has been an amazing experience. Everything from admissions to my instructors have been excellent. I am set to graduate in the spring and I maintain a 4.0. I am a member of The Society of Collegiate Scholars, The Deans List, and The Presidents List. I have worked hard to be where I am and Kaplan has challenged me. A piece of advice for students who want to attend is to look at how many positive reviews there are versus negative ones. The majority of the negative posts I read indicated that the student was the issue. Either they thought everything would be handed to them or they did not do the proper research before enrolling. Either way, don't look down on the school for a few bad apples. You will receive a great education and yes, the school is regionally accredited. Most of the complaints I have read sound like "Trophy Generation" cases. Do your research, work hard, and you will blossom.
I want to redo my review. I am 5 weeks in to my second term. I made the President's list in my first term with a 4.0 and I am hoping to continue doing so. My Academic Advisor has been an amazing help, as well as other advisors I have talked to, and I can honestly say, the financial aid department have done a complete 360, and have been an amazing help as well. I have never been happier. I love it here.
I had a wonderful educational experience with Kapalan online, the courses were challenging, the teachers were helpful & concerned. I was able to obtain my college in a friendly and educationally challenging environment.
I am on my Junior semester here at kaplan University. I am getting used to online from community college. The problem I have had was financial aid. I was on the phone for about 2-3 hours a week for 2 months prior to my first semester. The second semester wasn't as bad registering. So for any prospective new students. Be advised that you will need a couple months before you intend to start classes.
Every time they told me to hand in another paper so I can start. Then I would hear nothing back and would call to find out that I still owed financial aid more paperwork. The part I found shady was that you will all have to sign a paper so you can not sue them?? Anyways there is a lot of homework, but if you have a lot of time it's possible to pass. I have a 4.0 currently.
