Kaplan University / financial aid practices

KamiB on Nov 24, 2017

Funds are never released in the date they give you. There's a long turn around time between them getting the funds from the federal government, providing to the third party credit union, and then finally releasing to you. I don't usually get my refund until Week 6. OF A 10 WEEK COURSE WHEN...

Back in 2010, I had to withdraw from classes and ended up being told I owed the school almost $6k. I fought for years, called and spoke with an excess of 50 different people. All of whom told me I owed this money and I couldn't have my transcripts or re-enroll unless it was paid. I...

I have contacted both departments numerous times, each semester. Each time I was assured my financing was in order, I would have enough money. Then I look and it says I owe $1700+. I call back in and they say I'm out of money and I was given misleading information last time. Now tack on an...

Jennifer D'Esposito on Mar 12, 2017

I can honestly be certain that it is way too late to post any form of complaint about this college and the financial burden it had placed on me since the start of my education with them. I believe that the start of my degree plan with them was in November of 2011 or 2012. Within the 1st few...

Kaplan University / stipend checks

kimparsi on Dec 12, 2013

Kaplan never sends out your financial aid checks on time. They hold onto the money for 8 weeks and by the time the course is over you finally receive your check and by this point, you have already flunked out of your class because you have lost everything you owned with promises to pay...
