Kaplan was founded in 1938 by Stanley Kaplan, creating standardized exams and college prep tests for college admissions including the SAT, ACT, GRE, LSAT, and MCAT. Kaplan developed into a highly respected name within the education industry and expanded into higher education programs and professional training courses, including Kaplan University. Our programs grew out of a need for people who wanted to go back to school, but could not easily attend a brick and mortar college campus that could train them in their chosen field. Kaplan students enroll with Kaplan University because the flexibility of our degree programs allow students to work from home, completing coursework at their own pace.
If you are seeking an institution of higher education dedicated to providing innovative undergraduate, graduate, and continuing professional education programs that foster student learning with opportunities to launch, enhance, or change careers in today’s diverse global society, Kaplan University is an excellent choice. Kaplan University is deeply committed to our students, providing general education, a student-centered service and support approach, and applied scholarship in a practical environment.
