Learning Center Experience
F. Derek Roman is from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He graduated from high school in 1999 and
continued his education at college, though he did not find his passion at
school. He found more success working as a tech support specialist and a help
Derek chose Kaplan University due to the demands of his work
schedule. He knew that he wanted to go back to school, but wasn’t sure if he
would be able to attend daytime classes at an on-ground university.
After 4 years
in the professional world, Derek decided to pursue his newfound interest in
programming at Kaplan University, where he obtained a bachelor’s degree in
information technology. "Through my degree plan, I was exposed to a variety of different programming languages and technologies for achieving a variety of goals."
During his time at Kaplan University, Derek found he owed part
of his success to two important resources: Education Advisors and
professors. He said, “A fantastic Education Advisor always answered all of my
questions and even when she didn’t know them, she knew who to contact to find
the answers we needed. Also, both the instructors and tutors not only showed me
what I was doing wrong but why it was wrong, so I could further my knowledge
Derek shined both in and outside the classroom. At Kaplan
University, he was able to maintain a cumulative GPA above 3.8. He also was a member of three different honor
societies and two student organizations.
Six months before Derek completed his degree, he was promoted from
working in support and infrastructure into a dot net developer role. He said the
promotion, which included a raise in salary, allowed him to “perform work that
I love and be supportive for my family.”
Though Derek had a successful career before obtaining his degree,
he credits his promotion to his education at Kaplan University. “My
education is what allowed me to have the career I wanted within that
Currently, Derek is working full time as an associate programmer
His advice to others, especially those who are just beginning
school, is that “your education is in your hands. Make the best of where you
are at and make sure you do what you want to do. Once you land that job you
love, you will never 'work' again.”
