I attended Kaplan University from 2010-2014. I recieved ny associates degree in business and then enrolled in thier BS program for early childhood education. During my schooling I never dropped below a B average and that was only 3 times. I was one semester away from my degree when I was informed that my funding had run out and I would hve to pay for half of the current semester and all of the last semester, $770.00 and over $2,300.00 respectively. This is after I was informed that financial aide would fund my degree.

To add insult to injury I was then informed that even though I only needed 180 credits for my BS I would have to earn 182 credits because with the classes my academic advisers had scheduled for me I would have 2 extra core credits but would be short 2 elective credits, therefore I would have to take a extra class my last term and pay for this out of pocket as well. At the time I was informed of these developements I was between jobs and was unable to pay for the current term let alone the final term with an extra class.

I found a job with a reputable company doing manual labor at 55 years old. The company promoted enternally and in the course of a year had a position open up that my associates degree should set me in a position ahead of my fellow employees. That was when I found that Kaplan's degree was not held in high regard by my employer. My goal was to become a teacher in my home state but with the information I am finding out about Kaplan and thier accredidation this does not seem likely. 4 years and massive debt have been for nothing.

I feel wronged but am in no position to do anything about it legally which sucks. I would gladly assist in any action that is being taken to stop Kaplan from taking advantage of others especially veterans like myself.

Please incluse me in suing Kaplan

AUTHOR: Susan - (USA)

POSTED: Tuesday, May 09, 2017

 My name is Susan Cox. I attended Kaplan University on line. I had taken all the courses in health information management with a 3.4 grade average. It was the end of my course study. I only had to take a clinical class and an eternship which was required to get my degree. Kaplan put roadblocks up getting me into clinical and also stated they were having a hard time getting an externship in a facility in my area. They began to pressure me into taking additional courses, even though I had completed all required work. I took it upon myself to try contacting medical facilities to see if I could find one to fufill my externship. I got the same answer every place I called. They did not recognize Kaplan as accredited. I want either my student loans forgiven or a class action suit be brought against Kaplan University Online. Please advise what steps I should take.
