Students who are interested in enrolling in courses, but are not sure Kaplan is going to be the right fit can attend the first five weeks of a class risk free. The Kaplan Commitment allows students to enroll and participate in a class for five weeks to get a feel of the requirements and learning atmosphere. At the five week mark the student will need to decide whether they wish to complete the course or opt out. If after five weeks the student decides Kaplan is not the right fit, they will be able to dis-enroll without owing tuition.
Kaplan University offers a wide range of courses of study for students to choose from. Legal studies, criminal justice, education and nursing are just a few areas that students can choose to pursue a degree in. Students can also receive a certificate in certain areas of study after meeting the course requirements.
