Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2021

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

Degree: Fire Science/Fire-fighting
Graduation Year: 2017

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!

Degree: Psychology, Other
Graduation Year: 2018

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 Withdrawn from my classes because financial aid is not clear or helpful at all.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.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2017

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!!

Degree: Nutrition Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

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.

Degree: Law & Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2019

I attend Kaplan University and I do my classes on line. Since I work full time, it is very convenient to be able to be online after work or on weekends to enter act with my fellow students and the instructor. The Professors that I have had so far have been some of the best and they really showed an interest in seeing that all their students obtained the necessary information to pass their course. There was never a time that one could reach out the instructor to gain more instruction time or to have assignment turned in at a later date due to personal issues that a student might have. One issue that I personally had with Kaplan was the financial department. In my opinion, Kaplans Financial Aid Department was not efficient in making sure students accounts kept updated nor were they proactive in doing proper quality assurance of the students account when an error has occurred by no fault of the student. This was a big issue for me because I successfully completed a certification in 2017 and I was told that an issue of 2015 showed that I was given an extra stipend check in that year. Kaplan said nothing to me from 2015 to 2017 about any extra stipend check given to me erroneously. One can image my confusion in May 2017 that I was being penalized for an error in Kaplan's system in 2015. I have recently paid the institution back and my Paralegal certificate is being mailed out to me but I wanted Kaplan to understand that it was their responsibility to make sure students financial accounts get some kind of quality assurance done so that unwanted financial burden is not put on the student, a veteran for that matter. Other than that issue Kaplan academic programs is professional. Again the instructors were top of the line Professors who knew their course lesson plan and was able to articulate their lesson. I must profess that there was technical issues with conducting class at times and some Professors had to cancel online class for the week but the Professor did give the class full credit. My journey is almost over Kaplan and I achieved what I set out to achieve as far as my major for my chosen profession.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2017

I was honesty very nervous with finding an online school. I thought I would miss out on a lot of things that one would normally get going to a campus university. I was sadly mistaken. This university is absolutely amazing. The staff is very helpful and there are VARIOUS helpful websinars/seminars monthly that help you with multiple topics. The workload as any college course was hard and easy. Professor were understanding and very helpful. Overall amzing school and amazing experience.

Degree: General Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

Not a good school, financial aid department isnt worthless and slow. The Education advisor team is ok, but slow and lack of knowledge. The worst part is the credit by examination section, they will steal your money and make you fail in order for you to go take the course. This is the worst college experience for me so far.

Degree: Medical Billing & Coding
Graduation Year: 2018

This program is awful. Apparently financial aid center sucks. I don't get the Pell Grant and I was told in the very beginning by them that it would be 800/10 weeks now it keeps going up and it'll be up to 1500 by the time I'm done. They barely accept payment arrangements. I thought it was going to be $200/two weeks but now its gone up to $275. I have never missed a payment and they refuse to help you. This program sucks. Now they have a new rule that professors do not go over the material during seminar. Seminars are required so you waste your time with seminars and they don't teach you anythings its a review of what is due for the next week. Its the worst program ever. Learn medical billing on your own you don't have to go to school for it.
