Disappointing Fiasco

I used Kaplan because their degree curriculum was exactly what I wanted. I don't know what other online programs are like but I was not impressed with Kaplan. The instructors WERE generally very good. The eductational quality of the courses was awful. It was like no one actually read what was posted for the courses. Grading rubrics often did not match assignment descriptions, required readings did not align with the assignments, etc. The financial aid department was an absolute joke. From day 1 they had my account screwed up, were very unresponsive to emails, and just did not have a clue. After all of that I would recommend you look elsewhere. For the price there HAS to be something better.

Do not attend. I am currently attending and everything you hear about financial aid is true. They screwed up my financial aid and over sent me money over four terms. Now they expect me to pay it all back NOW. No warning no nothing. This was my first time back in school since I graduated undergrad and I thought I was receiving the correct amount of money as a stipend. NOT, Financial aid said they made a mistake and I now need to pay them. I am in school there right now.I can't drop out and go else where b.c. I owe them this huge amount of money and they won't release my transcript. Not to mention they sent a financial aid denial letter with another student's information attached to it. Her name, address, id number, phone number and loan information. Careless! So if you are considering it and using their financial aid department. Stop now and run the other way.

Ok.. I am so outraged I don't know where to begin. I am two weeks away from completing my Master's degree, and something strange happenes.. The professor will not accept my assignment which is worth alot of point, because I was just couple hours late from the deadline.. All the other semesters, they (including the academic advisors) told me that the professors should grade your work as long as you turn them in before the end of the semester, and that was the case for me. I always got As or Bs even when I turned some of my assignments a week or so late. Now that I'm close to graduating, all the sudden they change the policy and are telling me they will F my work (which I put alot of effort in staying up many nights with couple hours of sleep) and there is a possibility that I might have to retake the course even though I did ALL of my god dam# assignment on time except this one. Seriously, something is shady here. why all the sudden they change their "flexible" policy to "strict" policy, now that I'm very close to completing my degree? One reason, they want more MONEY! they are trying to make me stay another semester with them so they can rip me off. I warn you. These professors are unprofessional, and even the advisors will switch their stories to get money out of you. A fraud institution. Don't spend a penny on them they WILL rip you off.
