I'm bringing UMass into this review as it is my only comparison for online study as I discuss my experience at Kaplan University thus far.
At KU, So far, KU has been really easy to use from a technological standpoint, especially when compared to UMass.
At first I just assumed that this was a new school that was just starting out but I was in shock when I was told it wasn't.
I didn't attend Kaplan for longer than a semester due to the fact I absolutely couldn't absorb any of the information that was being taught.
Currently, my financial aid rebate/stipend check was mailed several weeks prior to when they said it would be, which is good news.
I don't have a problem paying the money but what no one at Kaplan will answer is why was I not contacted about this balance before.My first term at KU is coming to a close and I just wanted to share my experience.I went to two brick-and-mortar schools in the process of working toward my undergraduate degree and ended up completing the last 1/3 online with University of Massachusetts Amherst (University Without Walls).I was told instead that I was a "nutritionist." I then enrolled in an actual accredited university and had to leave because I ran out of financial aid due to Kaplans tuition. I have attended Kaplan for the last year and a half, and I love this school.You are able to take more than two classes if they feel you can handle it, I have take more than three classes twice.
