Introducing a University When and Where You Need It

Our campus and learning center facilities provide a wealth of onsite resources, including study areas and, in many locations, labs with program-specific equipment. Your local team of Advisors can assist you with education advising, financial aid, student accounts, career services, and admissions and are available every step of the way—from enrollment to graduation.

As a Kaplan University student, you can take advantage of tutoring though the Academic Success Centers and will have full access to resources available through the Kaplan University Online Library. You’ll also have the opportunity to join student clubs and groups to build relationships with classmates.

Kaplan University campuses and educational learning centers have an established connection to their local communities, including alliances with area employers to help support students who are seeking employment. We keep a pulse on area employment needs to ensure program offerings support the demands of the local economy. In addition, locations host onsite events that provide opportunities to network with fellow students, area employers, and other members of the community.

Program-Specific Labs

Many of our locations offer labs with program-specific equipment to complement the campus learning experience, giving students the opportunity to gain hands-on skills in a simulated, real-world environment.

Select locations offer:

  • Medical Assistant Labs: Most labs contain patient beds that mimic a doctor's office setting, an autoclave for proper sterilization of equipment, a centrifuge to work with fluid samples, a reception area, prosthetic arms to learn blood draws, and drawers and cupboards full of instruments and equipment used to teach students how to set up and complete various procedures and tests. There is also a child and infant "dummy" for practice exercises.
  • Nursing Skills Labs: These labs include hospital beds, wall consoles with mock oxygen adapters, ambulatory devices, a scale, and mannequins (both low- and mid-fidelity). Approximately 8 to 10 students can work in each lab at once. The lab gives students hands-on training prior to moving on to clinical settings.
  • Criminal Justice Labs:  These labs are equipped with a Fire Arms Training Simulator. This machine provides students with realistic training scenarios that aid in developing critical thinking skills, eyewitness identification, and on-demand verbal commands. Only one student is allowed in the simulation room at a time with the instructor. The scenarios can escalate or de-escalate based on the student's performance.
