The school in Columbus, Ohio is a mess. Some instructors are there just to collect a pay check. Some of the instructors are very unprofessional and rude along with their staff. Students pass by cheating which is overlooked by instructors and staff. Students are passed just to meet quota. School is known as a “Ghetto School” within the community. Businesses are hastens to employee student who graduated from this school. I really suggest if you live in the Columbus, Ohio area, you check out other schools before attending this school, reputation of this school is very poor.

I really wish I would have looked around more before commiting to kaplan. They give WAY to much work for an online school, especially one that is supposed to help people with a flexible schedule. They load you down with work, don't support you at all if you are behind, and it was just a waste of my money overall. I have been spending 4 and 5 hours a night just on work, three times that amount on the weekends, and most of the teachers do not try to help you catch up. I would think twice before coming into Kaplan, especially if you are a military family.

Kaplan is way overpriced & charges 3 1/2 times the amount that a REAL college does. I was made to take a class called Pathways to success which is nothing more than expensive filler. The class is $357 per credit hour, the book was $87 and the class teaches you how to take notes and about different ways people learn. No colleges in this area take any credits from Kaplan because the material is beneath college level. The school portrays the image that you are in college and getting a college level education and this could not be further from the truth. Save your money and go elsewhere. You'll be glad you did.

I am a current student at Kaplan on line and have found it to be a very good experience. I did not have any trouble enrolling or getting financial aid. I have not been to school in many years and they advisors were very helpful and the website is very easy to follow. To those who have posted negative reviews I would ask what exactly are your goals and do you expect someone to hold your hand. This is college not kindergarten. Although there may be administration issues and communication flaws, what business doesn't have these issues? I am very satisfied and challenged by attending Kaplan and would recommend it to anyone seeking a quality online education.
