Students who choose to continue their studies at the University will need to meet specific requirements. Graduate programs not included.

EL 206 Savings: 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.
