      As a student at Kaplan University, I have a very birds-eye view. Some people claim that Kaplan University is a scam, others have only good things to say about Kaplan. Here is the run down of the different areas of Kaplan.

      Everyone’s first concern is usually money. Kaplan University is not exactly a discount school. People make a mistake is assuming that schools online should be inexpensive. Quite the contrary, you are paying for education in the comfort and convenience of your own home. I do agree that if you are trying to get a less expensive education you should try to look at all of the schools and compare the price tag.

      Kaplan is an accredited University. Your grades and credits will transfer from Kaplan to another, so if you are stuck doing school at home for a little while and you decide to go to a brick


      and mortar school when your time frees up; by all means transfer those credits. However if you stick with Kaplan, you will still get your degree. It just might cost a bit more than your average tech college. I personally think it is expensive, but at the time I joined the college I had no other option. It is a great option when you are stuck at home and desperate for a degree in this economy.

      Aside from cost issues, the teachers at Kaplan are great. They are very friendly, informative and welcoming to their students. Every class is a joy to be in and you can make online friends very easily. I personally learned a lot from my courses so far at Kaplan University.

      Another negative I would like to point out is Financial Aid. Financial Aid is a pain in the rear to begin with, but with Kaplan ...


      • it has been a bit of a hassle. If you don’t turn in all of your documents you will receive phone call after phone call until you get it in and they won’t let you attend your classes until that is worked out. I suppose that is a good thing for both you and Kaplan as it protects you from racking up a bill you can’t pay for.

        More positives include their online learning centers like the Writing Center and the Math Center. They are resources for the students that need help with their writing projects and with math. Kaplan also has an extensive online Library, email, and direct connections to your seminars. In the classes the homework is pretty heavy, but this is to be expected. If you are unable to reach an institution, chances are you have to earn your credits by doing some kind of

        work. So they double the homework that a brick and mortar school does. You better be good at writing to attend any online schools including Kaplan.

        With Kaplan University the positives outweigh the negatives. You can tell a place is legitimate when there are flaws. If a school looks perfect, chances are there is something too good to be true about it. Kaplan will help those looking for education, arts, and science majors in the tech field. I recommend them and out of all of the schools in the nation, I give them a 3 star out of 5 rating. That’s not bad for an online school, where as others fall short of those three stars significantly. I say look over their credentials before signing up just to make sure you are satisfied, but otherwise they are good to go with compared to many of the other ones online.
