Complaint Review: Kaplan University
I was so excited to start college and finally make something out of my life but boy was I so wrong!!! I started Kaplan University online in September 2009. I was going for my Associates Degree in Medical Transcription. I finally graduated in June 2012 with a 3.2 GPA. Sounds good so far, but what a nightmear! I took out some loans through a FHA and I opted to max my loans that way I could have some money to help my husband with the bills and such as I was not working and focusing on our new baby and school.
Everything was fine until I was getting ready to finish college and they send me a bill for over 3,000!! I called and they tell me that this bill is for an overpayment that they gave me in 2009?? I think this is bogus and why did they wait 2 years later to tell me this, and if it is true then why did they make a mistake and overpay me?
The second part to my story is that I now have so much money that I have to pay back to Kaplan University and No degree, because I owe the money so they havent sent mine to me. I am not even able to get a job with the so called Associates Degree that I have. I have applied to over 60 companies and it all is the same response. The companies proceed to tell me that I do not have enough experiance in the field of Medical Transcription. I guess that Kaplan University is not a credible college because nobody will hire me with a degree from them. I took 2 years out of my life and thought I was doing a good thing but it turned out to bite me in the butt.
If you are reading this please take my advice and stay far away from Kaplan University!!!!
