Everything they promised and more
Masters in Public Health
I did plenty of research before enrolling and weighed the good and the bad. I'm so glad I decided to take my chances because I consider completing this program the biggest accomplishment in my life to date. It was very rigorous and I had to work for it, but I learned and grew tremendously (I also got two promotions at work in the process). In the last two years I only had one "bad" instructor (unresponsive, condescending), and the rest went far over and above to ensure the success of our class. Since this was a master's program, most of my professors had multiple advanced degrees and broug...Read Full Review

A HUGE JOKE!!!
Holistic Health and Masage Theapy
Honestly, if I had a choice for negative stars I would vote NEGATIVE 5 STARS!! I BEG ANYONE WHO IS THINKING ABOUT ENROLLING INTO THIS COLLEGE PLEASE DO ALL YOUR RESEARCH FIRST!!!!!! I enrolled in the Holistic Health Program. This program gives you 1,000 hours. You get about a 3 week basic anatomy course. Then you move right into the HHP classes. 2 courses we PAID FOR were not given. No time for one. The other teacher didn't have the equipment and said it was too messy to do. One course we had to buy our own supplies. Each HHP course is a week long. The general classes are about ...Read Full Review

BS Legal Studies
Legal Studies
I completed a BS Legal Studies from Kaplan in Nov 2011. I took the program as a prep for law school to see if I could handle the work load (caseload). I had attended traditional college courses, and transferred 60 hours. Kaplan did not transfer all of my college courses which I see as a credit to the institution. The course load was difficult with many hours per work focused on case law research, writing case briefs, and general research. All of the professors I had were practicing attorneys, some very prominent in their field..NY Supreme Court ghost rider, Iowa ABA ethics board, criminal law,...Read Full Review

Pros and Cons
Bachelors in Management
I am in my very last term and I graduate with my bachelor's degree in a month. Here is an overview of my experience at Kaplan: Pros: 1. The teachers were very well educated. Each course I had enrolled in, they have virtual seminars where the teacher would have to introduce themself and they would talk about their teaching background and credentials and alot of my teachers had PhDs. One of my teacher was a professor from Harvard University and taught for Kaplan part time to make extra income. 2. The courses were challenging but doable. Kaplan offers many online resources for tutoring...Read Full Review

Rigorous, effective and informative
Masters in Higher Education
I am in a graduate program at Kaplan for a master's of Science in Higher Education, Student Services. I completed my undergraduate education at traditional community colleges and universities. I have found the program at kaplan to be quite rigorous, effective and informative. My instructors have all been pretty fantastic, even going so far as to be professional references and mentors. I have nothing but praise for them. As far as financial aid/student accounts, I have had no problems. I applied for and received federal Stafford loan to pay for my education and have only had one problem. ...Read Full Review

KAPLAN IS A MODERN DAY SCAM
NUTRITION
I am a former student at Kaplan and I would implore new student to research other online schools because Kaplan is horrible. Most of the teachers only have a bachelors degree and let me remind you, you pay top dollar to got to Kaplan. Even when you borrow student loan to buy your books they will not give you the additional money you borrowed, they will hold on to your money and I know that is illegal because I have gone to traditional college before and once your school fee is paid they have to give you the remainder of your loan. Their teacher are not qualified and I know you get a mediocr...Read Full Review

Kaplan University
BSBA
I just graduated with my Bachelors Degree in Business Management from Kaplan University. I attended this school for four years. My education was decent and the teachers and classmates were excellent. I enjoyed that the Profs had real-life experience that they drew from and many truly wanted students to succeed and be educated. Hats off to them for their excellent work! The problem in Kaplan’s accounting practices and financial aid administration…or lack there of as the case may be. I truly believe this organization to be FRAUDULENT in their accounting roles when it comes to handling student...Read Full Review

Education Wonderful; Administrative Support... Questionable
BS of Science in Health and Wellness
I must first state that Education-Wise, Kaplan is great! The Professors are overall pretty awesome! However, the rest of Kaplan's faculty should take note from the professors. To say the least the rest of the faculty has a hard time with inter-department communication. Every phone line is automated and wait times to actually talk to a Kaplan representative (regardless of the department) are outrageous! The financial aid department is TERRIBLE! I have literally received 20+ calls on the same situation DESPITE the fact that my "plans are noted" and when I inform the representative calling me I ...Read Full Review

Read the fine print and take heed!
On-line case management course
I thought this course might be a good thing for my career. I did not have a job when I signed up and when I got a job I had no time for the course. I let them know. They waited until after 60 days to write me. When I said I had no time they withdrew me from the course and said financial aid would contact me. Yes- they contact you to pay the bill in full. So I did a one month course for a bit under $4,000.00. I say - go to a real school. This place is only in it for the money. They do not care about people at all. "Run, Forrest (insert name), Run!" I am going to do my best to let people know ...Read Full Review

Disabilities Problems
BS in Communcations Tech writing
I have a learning disability and contacted the disability center. I proved that I needed rasonabil accomadations for all my classes. Some of my professors understood and went the extera mile and others did not. Beware of the difficult professors and not understanding the capability of your disability.

Horrible- Absolutely Awful
GMAT
I wouldn't even give it a star. I went to class and the instructor never showed! I waited around for 40 min, until finally another instructor said she would contact my instructor and get back to me. I've been on hold now with customer service for 45 min- one of which put me through voicemail. All I can get is that maybe my class was cancelled, but I was never informed. I would look at other prep courses. I do not look forward to the mess of the reimbursement of my credit card..... or the re-scheduling of my GMAT for $50 because they decided to cancel and not tell me. (And yes, I did call b...Read Full Review

SCIENCE
I WOULD TELL ANYONE WHO WANTS TO GO TO KAPLAN RUN IT'S A BUNCH OF BULL SHIT THEY ARE SO OVER PRICED FOR THE EDUCATION THAT THEY PROVIDE THEY TELL YOU WHAT THEY THINK YOU WANT TO HEAR THEN AT THE END YOU WILL FIND OUT IT IS BULLSHIT. THE ONLY THING THEY ARE GOOD AT IS FALSE INFORMATION AND TO CONTACT SOME NOT ALL PROFESSORS IT WILL TAKE DAYS TEH SAME WITH YOUR ADVISORS.

Horrible customer service
CFP program
When signing up for Kaplan - they treat you like royalty. Immediate call backs, istantaneous form requests, gushy nice phone reps. After signing up you will NEVER be able to speak to anyone in customer service or your counselor again. Hold times are infinite ( I usually quit after 45 minutes) You can leave a message or send an email that will never be answered. At this time I have been trying to get a hold of them for three months needing info about my account and the program.

NClex Exam
Kaplan Test Prep
I had already taken the exam twice. Kaplan is wonderful. The questions are more NClex based than the previous review I had done. I would advise anyone to take this review. It is wonderful. I passed.

After Enrollment
Criminal Justice
My enrollment adviser was great; however, when my text books were sent while I was on vacation (they knew I was going to be on vacation) - no one was willing to help or even provide information so I could have books before my classes start. Instead, I got passed around from person to person for 2 days. I don't recommend Kaplan University to anyone. After you're enrolled, there is no one there for support. It's almost like being set up for failure.

Decent school, bad administration
Communication
I went to Kaplan for 2 terms. All my instructors were great but I don't have anything good to say about my advisors. Before I was admitted, I was told that any credits that I had from an accredited university should transfer. The key word here is "should". Of course, the majority of my credits did NOT transfer. I think that they also try to intice you by saying that it only costs $320 per credit hour. Those who are used college courses being 3 credit hours think, what a bargain and then later in their pitch they tell you their courses are 5 to 6 credit hours making you feel like you are gettin...Read Full Review

Management
I wish I could say Ive had a positive result with Kaplan. There are some nice people there, but right off the bat, I noticed that their inter department communication was very poor. I changed my degree because my life situation was changing rapidly during their aggressive persuit of my joining them. I had lost my job, and thought school would be a good way to teach myself a new career. However, I found a job out of the blue, that started to provide some new opportunities, so I switched my degree. This totally overwhelmed their organizational skills, and everything fell apart. I stopped getting...Read Full Review

Working out great!
Buisness administration
I am in my 6th term with Kaplan. I work full time and have a family. Attending an online school is the only way I could reaonably get my degree. I checked into local schools that have online programs but you can only take certain classes at certain times and it would have taken me years to finish. I am almost halfway done with my Associate's Degree after one year. I work with someone who will be finishing their Associate's Degree this summer from a local traditional college after 5 YEARS of classes! The classes are pretty easy at first but they do get harder and the whole thing is you ha...Read Full Review

Great School, but worried about degree recognition
BS in Legal Studies
So far Kaplan has fit my needs for school. It is flexible and lets me work independently which is my preference. I have not had any issues with financial aid, billing, etc, everything in that area was just as expected and outlined prior to enrolling. As for support my Academic Advisor calls all the time, too often for my liking to follow up and make sure everything is going well. There is a lot of support from the administration. My only concern is whether or not my BS in Legal Studies will be recognized and accepted for my entrance to law school. I am in my 3rd term and that fact ...Read Full Review

You get what you put into it
BS in Network Technology
I am a current IT student at Kaplan University who has been attending for over 2 years now finishing this October with a Bachelor of Science in Networking Technology. I consider the price for attending Kaplan relatively reasonable when you take into account that the price includes all of your books and software. When you consider the total cost of attending traditional schools; tuition, books, transportation, etc. the cost of attending Kaplan is not outrageous. The academic department at Kaplan is in par with most of the academic departments at other schools I have attended; the advisor wil...Read Full Review

Good education not so good customer service
Management
I graduated from Kaplan with a BS in Management in 2007 and am now in my master's program at Kaplan. I think it is a great school and a great academic experience, but I have had problems with Student Accounts for 3 years. The US Army approved tuition payments but Kaplan was not sending them the invoice nor returning calls left by the Army. The Army complained to me that the money they had earmarked for me was screwing up their accounts because they could not pay Kaplan until they got an invoice. Now I work for an employer who pays 100% of my tuition up front. On JUL 23 my company sent them a c...Read Full Review

Beware of tuition costs!
Criminal Justice
The classes, the work, and the teachers were all wonderful. I did not have any problems whatsoever with that aspect of Kaplan. I did the 2+2 program, where I obtained my Associates in Criminal Justice first, then they applied those courses to my Bachelor's in Criminal Justice. It took me 4 years total to finish. Basically, it is an accelerated course, because you don't really get any sugstantial time off. I was told I couldn't 'take a break' because it would set me back in regards to financial aid and my status as a student! But I moved through it. When I first started, we had 4 quarter...Read Full Review
