Paying For School

Kaplan University is committed to helping you find more ways to save on college tuition so you can achieve your educational and professional goals. Our scholarships, grants, transfer and experiential learning credits, and Tuition Cap are some of the ways we can help lower the cost of your tuition and help you graduate sooner.

Kaplan University Tuition Cap

As part of our promise to help make college education more accessible and affordable, we have created the Kaplan University Tuition Cap. For students enrolled in select programs, our Tuition Cap ensures you will only pay a fixed amount for your education, as long as you meet and maintain all requirements. Not only will you know exactly how much your education will cost when you enroll, but our Tuition Cap will also help you save on the total cost of your degree.
