Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This index doesn’t consider students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading perception. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture.

Kaplan is a wonderful school. I gain my Bachelor’s of Science degree in Communication and I am in the process of receiving my Master’s of Science degree in Human Services. It was very simple to apply and I had help from the beginning to the end. I want to thank the team at Career Services, Kimberly Gembe and Saralyn Seelye for helping me with employment. After graduation, I had difficulty finding suitable employment and the team contact me and went WAY above their jobs to help. They help improve my resume and cover letter to become more employable, they sent countless emails with jobs that may be of interest in my area, call employers and sent referrals letters to countless employers on my behalf. Because of their efforts I was able to land the career of my dreams so Thank You. If you need assistance with finding a job or a career please don’t hesitate to contact them, you will NOT regret it. Thank you KAPLAN.......

Kaplan has ruined my Daughter's life. She at only started taking classes at the college when her daughter developed a severe seizure disorder. They both practically lived at Johns Hopkins Hospital for months at a time. My Daughter tried to keep class work caught up until the impossible happened. She spoke with college and was advised to stop and start again later. Thats when She was told her daughter had less than a year to live and was advised to start making arrraingments and get prepared to watch her Daughter die a horrible slow death. During this time the college merged with Kaplan. Kaplan would not let her return and told her she had to pay the full loan off and it didn't matter she didn't use it. Total medical assistance program cost $25 thousand. That was 11 years ago. Kaplan has been draining her dry, and to make it worst approx. 10 wks ago they screwed her again. Someone has had the papperwok for the biggest part of the loan sitting in their office since 2012 and never contacted her. This part of major loan totaled $17 thousand. So with penalty and interest they have charged her ADDITIONAL $30 THOUSAND DOLLARS. Lawyer has told my Daughter. KAPLAN UNIVERSITY IS KNOWN FOR SCREWING PEOPLE WITH SCHOOL LOANS! So has her Mother, I'm now watching painfully drowning as KAPLAN holds her under.

Attending Kaplan University was one of the best decisions and experiences I have ever had. From the moment I was enrolling, to corresponding with my classmates and professors in classes, until after the program working with Career Services to find a job, my experience has been exceptional and superseded all my expectations for college! I do not have a single negative comment to say about Kaplan University and I miss being a student there. I never would have been able to receive my Bachelors of Science had it not been for Kaplan University. Thank you Kaplan University Professionals for helping me to better my life and education! I will always be grateful for you!

This is a really awesome school to attend if you are looking for a set career and to get your foot in the door. The Career Services Dept. just held an interview event at the Hagerstown campus, and both places that I interviewed with were so wonderful and made you feel very comfortable. It's a great way to practice your interview skills and set yourself up for success by the time of graduation.

Overall Rating:

I attended an Interview Day held by the Career Counseling staff. It was very productive as they had five organizations that were hiring for positions in the field that I had just graduated in (Psychology). The interviews were very brief, but they provided enough information to make a decision on whether to attend a more formal interview or not. I highly recommend any Kaplan student or graduate take advantage of these Interview Days, as well as the Career Counseling Staff to help in finding a career in you desired field.
