Ways to Save

Get Further, Faster, for Less

Kaplan University offers you a number of ways to save time and money
on your degree.

Four Ways to Save

1. Maximize the credits you've already earned

Most of our programs include a large pool of open electives. That means you're more likely to transfer in those prior credits.

2. Get credit for work experience or military training

Prepare a portfolio and have our faculty review it to see how many credits apply. On average, students earn 30 quarter credits atoward their degree and save an average of $9,000 on tuition.*

3. Test out of courses you've already mastered

If you've got the skills, you shouldn't have to sit through the class. Kaplan University believes your time is better spent building new career skills.

*In 2016, incoming Kaplan University students who passed EL 206 and submitted a portfolio for evaluation earned an average of 30 quarter credit hours toward their Kaplan University undergraduate degrees. Based on these experiential learning credits, tuition savings for nonmilitary students were on average $9,630. Savings may vary depending on the student’s individual prior learning experience. Tuition savings calculated as 30 quarter credit hours x standard tuition rate of $371.00  = $11,130.00 - $1,500.00 course fee = $9,630.00. Savings for students vary, are lower for employees of preselected corporations and postsecondary institutions with which Kaplan University has an educational relationship, and range from $3,450.00 to $5,400.00 for military students. Eligible college credits articulate into Kaplan University undergraduate degree plans. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Kaplan University does not guarantee that students will earn any particular number of credits or achieve any particular savings. See University Catalog for Prior Learning Assessment policy.
