Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2013

I honestly wish I had never attended as I can't use my degree to further my teaching career. I was told be the counselor that this school was 100% accredited and that credits would all transfer. Which is not the case at all. Only 5 classes will transfer to my state. I am now 47000 in debt and can't use degree at all.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

(university is now Purdue global) They do not allow you to receive an associates, only a bachelors. Financial aid is a NIGHTMARE at this school. WORST experience of my life. Got kicked out of classes multiple times for financial aid not getting documents I sent in or not getting information relayed to them. Wouldn't recommend to my worst enemy to be honest. They also changed my degree midway through. I did not want an ABA degree, I wanted a psychology degree and they apparently stopped offering that. Go to any school besides this one, please. Oh, and I have ONE class left before I graduate and financial aid is telling me I owe 2600 before I can finish my degree. Disgusting. Inconsiderate. Unorganized. Pathetic. Forgot to mention I asked for career help since I'm at the end of my degree and there was no help given. Their career page is a joke when you become a student. No help at all!

Degree: Health and Wellness, General
Graduation Year: 2013

Kaplan University was a great experience for me in my Bachelors program. I earned a Bachelors of Science in Health and Wellness. By attending this particular program I was able to study while I worked full time. Being a single parent at the time it was important that I had full time employment. The school also took my military experience and military status into consideration when it came to funding as well as the timing of classes. I feel as though they have been very helpful in the advancement of my career, so much so that I decided to get my Masters in Public Health with them as well.

Degree: Educational Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Wonderful school of thought! This will be a great opportunity for anyone who needs to work and attend school, simultaneously. The university is now known as Purdue Global University. You will have to manage your goals, prioritize your daily activities and if you have children, please make sure all of his or her needs are taken care of. I am a member od NSCS honor society as well as International PsiChi Honor Society.

Degree: Industrial and Organizational Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

I rate this school extremely poorly. They are for profit, and want to take your money , and give y our no support. At first, you can reach everyone o n the phone, but when you getg intyo the crust of your program, their true colors come out. Stay away from. THIS school. Please hear this advice.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

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.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2018

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.

Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2018

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!!!!!!!

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

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.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

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!
