   My name is Lisa.  I enrolled for a pharmacy tech class at Kaplan University Online January of 2009.  I was not too sure of the school but when I talked to the lady that wanted to help set me up for it, it sounded pretty legit.  I signed a contract saying I would go through with the course.

   It has now been a year and I rarely have the time to work on my course because I have a full time job and I simply can not afford to pay extra for books and online programs they want me to use.  I'm starting to wonder exactly what the $3,500 for the course is going to.  I didn't know I was going to have to pay another $800 for all the books I needed.

   I tried to drop out since I don't really feel happy about paying $135.15 per month for something I don't have the time to do, but they sent me an email saying if I drop out now, I would be charged the rest of my tuition within 30 days.  That's almost $2,000.  I fully regret my decision with Kaplan.

   A few months ago, I decided to get online and google "Kaplan University Online Scam".  To my surprise I found many different websites about how students felt scammed by how much they were being charged.  I am highly dissatisfied with this website and would like to stop paying for this and possibly get my money back so that I can go to Missouri State University here where I live. 

   My dream was to become a photographer.  I've been wanting to go to MSU since I graduated high school, but I did not have my license or a car to get there.  I figured I never would because I didn't have anyone to teach me how to drive, which is why I signed up for online college.  Now, I wish I would have waited so that I could be in MSU now.

   I am really hoping this Ripoff Report website will help me get this problem solved.  I do have all of my transaction receipts from Kaplan University saved in my email account if that will help.  I have everything saved from Kaplan, actually.  Please help me get the future I dreamed of having.  My email address is (((ROR redacted))).  Thank you.
