Building Futures One Success Story at a Time: Kaplan Reviews & Testimonials

Opening Doors to Better Careers and Brighter Futures

Kaplan's higher education instituations offer hard working, motivated men and women the opportunity to attain the skills and knowledge they need to enter into promising careers and make better lives for themselves and their families. Our academic programs are designed with input from and taught by working practitioners, to ensure students get the practical as well as theoretical knowledge they need for employment in today’s workplace. Also, these programs are flexibly formatted—offered in the evenings, on weekends, online, in person, or both—because our students are often older and juggling the competing demands of work, study, and family.

Kaplan's higher education institutions serve approximately 65,000 students, more than many of America’s largest public universities, and have graduated more than 300,000 students in the past decade.
