Kaplan launches debt-free trial program

September 27, 2010

Yesterday Kaplan Higher Education announced its "Kaplan Commitment" program, under which students at any Kaplan institution will be able to enrol in classes for several weeks and assess whether the coursework meets their education needs before making a financial commitment. Kaplan will also conduct assessments to help determine whether students are likely to be successful. The program is in response to critics of for-profit higher education who have argued that some schools encourage students to enrol -- paying tuition in large part with federal grants and loans -- in programs they are unlikely to finish.
