Kaplan University online application
Q: I want to apply to Kaplan's Master of Science in Nursing program. What steps do I need to take?
A: Good question! Applying to an online college program is a fairly simple process, daunting as it might seem. You can start by requesting more information through any of the links to Kaplan University on our website. But if you would like to bypass that method and get straight to applying, you will want to head to the Kaplan University website. Overall, the university's website is well-designed and easy to navigate. Visitors shouldn't have much trouble finding their way around. Once there, there are several steps to applying for an online degree program.
1. Learn more about your chosen program. It's important to find out what kind of program Kaplan University offers, because no two schools are the same. You can do this by navigating to the Programs section of Kaplan's website and choosing your desired area of study. Each program has its own page that includes a program overview, details on employment statistics and career opportunities in that particular field, further specializations within the program, curriculum and tuition information. Many programs, including the Master of Science in Nursing, offer several "tracks" that allow you to further specialize your education, which is important to know about.
2. Take note of the important details. Depending on your program of choice and what curriculum track you select within that program, the amount of credits needed for successful completion will vary. While the cost per credit is usually the same, the difference in required credits will change the overall cost of your education. It is also important to find out when the programs are being offered. Kaplan offers multiple start dates throughout the year to allow students better flexibility — you will want to ensure there is an upcoming start date that works for you.
3. Check out the admissions requirements. Within the Admissions section on the website, you can view a list of requirements for admission, including technology requirements. It's very important to be sure you have adequate equipment before beginning an online education program. You can also learn more about the admissions process itself for a better understanding of what will happen along the way to being accepted.
4. Set up an appointment to speak to an admissions advisor. Kaplan University requires you to speak with an advisor before doing anything else. You can either fill out a form and request to be contacted, or call a toll-free phone number to speak with an advisor immediately. This person will get you started on your application for enrollment. Once approved, your education will begin.
