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.
