About Lewiston Campus
"I decided to go back to school after being a police officer for 6 years and being passed over for a promotion. I enrolled at Kaplan University, and I have been promoted twice since I got my degree. The excuse of not having time just doesn't cut it. It's about making time for your future."
Barry Schmieks, Associate's in Criminal Justice Graduate
