Kaplan University

Kaplan University is the doing business as name of the Iowa College Acquisition Corporation, a company that owns and operates independent, private, for-profit colleges. Kaplan University is predominantly a distance learning institution of higher education that is regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and is a member of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA). The name comes from Stanley Kaplan, who founded Kaplan Test Prep..

Kaplan University offers associates, bachelors and masters degrees as well as certificates in fields such as education, business, information technology, arts and sciences, healthcare, nursing, criminal justice, and law. Kaplan serves more than 48,000 online and on-campus students. While Kaplan University is based in Davenport, Iowa, the main administration building is located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. In addition to eight campuses in Iowa and Nebraska, Kaplan has online student support centers in Florida, Illinois and Arizona. Kaplan has more than 2,200 instructors, professors and administrators.

Course Format

Online instructors and professors are required to hold two online office hours per week, and are also available via email and have to respond within 24 hours on weekdays and 48 hours on weekends if a student emails them. Also, weekly discussion boards are a part of each class curriculum, with a specific discussion topic required weekly for student/peers and student/instructor interaction in order to learn and grow within the student's field. In addition, scheduled weekly seminar sessions are held online once a week in each class with audio chat capabilities available for most classes which is highly advised to attend but is not mandatory . Completing option 2, or an pre-expected and additional assignment, is left an option if life makes it impossible for the student to attend the scheduled weekly seminar session. Major core classes have required weekly exams which must be completed within the week in order to receive credit for taking the class, along with required weekly assignments that must be completed. Research papers are expected along with other types of writing papers and all students are fully required and expected to cite using APA format in order to avoid copy writing.

Many courses also have a complete series of pre-recorded video sessions which are designed to replace the course textbook as the primary source of information. The video sessions are also available in text form, as notes and transcripts are posted for students to download and study. Within this context, the course text becomes a supplemental source of information to back up and reinforce what the students learn during the video sessions.
