Complaint Review: Kaplan University
Kaplan University Reputation is Awful and they Misrepresent Internet
I was told when going through the application process that the school was accredited and had a great reputation in my industry. I'm still not sure how accredited they are but I have had several employers tell me that they are not reputable and they did not recognize their degrees as actual degrees. They were taking candidates from a local tech school that had an associates degree over Kaplan students with a bachelors degree.
Their financing department is a struggle, they misrepresent when telling you how much your degree will cost you and they seem to only be conserned about getting their money. I have had more interaction with the financing people than my professors, classmates, advisors, and future employers combined. The hard part about Kaplan is not the actual schooling, it's paying for it.
They are basically a degree mill. As long as you can pay the amount they're asking they will try to get you a degree. Rather than working hard to learn about your profession, you will be working hard to pay for a degree.
They were bought out midway through my second term and changed the entire interface of the website. After doing great my first two terms I am struggling in my third due to lack of interest after being told all the money I'm spending and hours I am putting into my classwork is basically for a sheet of paper.
