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). Kaplan University was named in honor of Stanley H. Kaplan, who founded Kaplan Test Prep.
In 2014 U.S. News & World Report ranked Kaplan University as #56 of 205 in the online bachelor's program category. The university's graduate nursing program was ranked #70 of 95.
Kaplan University has faced several federal whistle-blower lawsuits whose accusations dovetail with the findings of an undercover federal investigation which revealed high-pressure recruiting and unrealistic salary promises. Kaplan's enrollment has declined from 119,000 to 65,000 amid these controversies.
According to the New York Times, 23% of Kaplan's programs fail the proposed gainful employment regulations, and an additional 10% are close to failing. This means that a significant number of Kaplan graduates are unable to pay back their student loans.
In 2015, Kaplan settled with federal Officials regarding allegations that it hired instructors who were not qualified. Approximately 300 former students of Kaplan will receive tuition refunds as part of the settlement.
