Kaplan University

Kaplan University is a private university with undergraduate, graduate, and continuing professional education programs delivered through an online learning environment. Kaplan University offers more than 125 degree and certificate programs in arts and sciences, business and management, criminal justice, education, information technology, health sciences, nursing, and legal studies. These programs offer students the flexibility to study on their terms, in order to take advantage of an interactive learning environment. Additionally, Kaplan University features advanced-start bachelor's degree programs for students with associate's degrees that can be completed in as little as 2 years (See University Catalog for Transfer of Credit policy). U.S. News & World Report evaluated hundreds of universities and ranked Kaplan University's online bachelor's degree programs among the nation's best for the second consecutive year.

In an effort to accommodate students who are active military, Kaplan University will consider military experience and prior relevant coursework for college credit. In fact, military students pursuing an undergraduate degree could be able to earn up to 75 percent of their credits through prior experience. Additionally, Kaplan University provides a flexible deployment policy for students who need it. Undergraduate tuition has been reduced up to 55 percent per quarter credit hour for active-duty service members and reservists. Veteran undergraduate tuition can be reduced up to 38 percent per quarter credit hour. Reduced tuition for graduate-level programs are also available, as is tuition reduction for military spouses. Kaplan University participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program.

To help make getting an education more affordable, Kaplan University has several scholarship opportunities available to qualifying students. Those who have already earned college credit elsewhere can apply for the Every Credit Counts scholarship, worth $500 per term for a maximum savings of $4,000 or more on an associate's degree or $6,000 or more on a bachelor's degree.

Kaplan University also offers other grants and scholarships for first-time enrollees, such as the Pass the Torch Scholarship and the President's Grant, which can result in savings of $100 to $500 per term.

Military service members, including Guard and Reserve, veterans, and their family members may qualify for reduced tuition rates, tuition assistance, scholarships, and grants for both undergraduate and graduate degree programs.

Kaplan University is regionally accredited, see the University's website for details.
