Kaplan University (Davenport, Iowa) So Called "SCAM" or "Fraud" Internet, Iowa
*Consumer Comment: It will come
*Author of original report: you're officially retarded.
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: Rumors?
OK. there are some rumors concerning Kaplan University Online College, wether it be based on the Financial Aid, Accredited, or Instruction Portion. i am a newly enrolled student at Kaplan, and i'm filing a report HERE because HERE is where most of the so called SCAMS and FRAUD reports are being made. therefore, i am registering an account and filing a report to squash the rumors and to clear things up. keep in mind, i do not represent Kaplan University College as a Staff Member, meaning i do not work for them. i am just a student.
Alright, so let's begin with the most accused portion of Kaplan University. Financial Aid. you know, i'm very particulate when it comes to money. i don't have much of it, so when i have to apply for a loan, i like to make sure it's not much. there are people here on the internet that either attend, or used to attend and, misrepresenting Kaplan University by stating that they do not give out degrees to students unless they pay off their Financial Aid Loans. this is 100% NOT TRUE. the only way Kaplan University does not hand out IN-HAND your degree is if you have an OUT OF POCKET EXPENSE to Kaplan University. if you owe Kaplan University any out of pocket expense, they will not give you your degree until it's paid off. on the other hand, if you owe Financial Aid Loans to lets say, DirectLoan, like i do, that's a different story. that doesn't mean that you won't get your degree. if that was the case, people who graduate from Kaplan University wouldn't receive their degrees for 10 years or until they paid off all of their loans. this is a total misrepresentation of what they stand for. whoever keeps reporting this, you should not only be ashamed of yourself for falsifying information such as this, but you should also read the fine print. shame, shame.
Now let us move on to the next abused assumption of Kaplan University. Accredited Classes. Let's take Criminal Justice for example. i'm reading reports of people saying that Kaplan University is not accredited by the ABA. listen, for those of you who want to be a lawyer, paralegal, whatever. unfortunately, for you, it has to be learned in a classroom. not one single class involving being accredited by the ABA is done online. does this mean that you can't pursue your Criminal Justice degree? of course not, you can still pursue your Criminal Justice degree for such things as the Law Enforcement field. again, this is just one example. just because the class is not accredited by ABA, does not mean that the degree means nothing. if you want to be a lawyer, you need to go to class for it.
As far as the instructors, i have not encountered any of them. however, i've had instructors via The United States Army, Job Corps, High School.. everywhere you go there's going to be atleast one instructor you don't agree or get along with. that doesn't mean that Kaplan University is a bad school.
i think that most of the problems that people have with Kaplan University is all heresay.
