At Kaplan University, we are constantly searching for ways to help students seek a brighter future, and that includes making sure our tuition costs are as low as possible. It’s why we are introducing the Kaplan University Tuition Cap for the select programs listed in the table.
How it works: When you enroll in a participating Tuition Cap program at Kaplan University, your tuition will be capped, ensuring that you only pay a fixed amount for your education at Kaplan University. Once you hit your tuition cap, you will no longer have to make payments for the rest of your education, even if you have to retake a course, as long as you meet and maintain all enrollment requirements for the Kaplan University Tuition Cap program.
Why it helps: Not only will you know exactly how much your education will cost when you enroll, but our Tuition Cap will also help you save 33% off the total cost of your degree.6 It's part of our promise to help make college education more accessible and more affordable.

you have earned a quality education through your service and should not have to
pay excessive out-of-pocket expenses to reach your educational goal. As a
result we have significantly reduced many of our tuition rates for
servicemembers, including Guard and Reserve; veterans; and military spouses.
Servicemembers may receive up to a 55%* tuition reduction and veterans up to a
38% reduction. Military spouses receive a 10% reduction, and spouses and
dependents of veterans or current military members may be eligible for the Military
Family Scholarship Program, which covers over 50% of tuition costs. Please note, these reductions cannot be combined. The 10% reduction for military spouses is not
available for programs in which a tuition cap program is offered.

rates and do not represent the reduction from special tuition offers such as
scholarships or tuition cap programs.
