Our Tuition Cap Lowers the Cost of Your Education
At Kaplan University, we are constantly searching for ways to help students seek a brighter future, and that includes making sure our tuition costs are as low as possible. That is why we are introducing the Kaplan University Tuition Cap on select programs for new students.
How it works: When you enroll in a participating Tuition Cap program at Kaplan University, your tuition will be capped, ensuring that you only pay a fixed amount for your education.[disclaimer]
Once you hit your cap, you will no longer have to make any payments for the rest of your education at Kaplan University, even if you have to retake a course, as long as you meet and maintain all enrollment requirements for the Kaplan University Tuition Cap program.
Why it helps: Not only will you know exactly how much your education will cost when you enroll, but our Tuition Cap will also help you save 33%* off the total cost of your tuition. It’s part of our promise to help make college education more accessible and more affordable.

You and your immediate family members are not eligible to combine the Tuition Cap and the corporate alliance tuition grant. Prospective students should choose the option that gives them the best financial benefit. For complete details, including eligibility, associated fees, and how prior learning credits impact the cost of attendance, contact an Admissions Advisor.
*Per-credit tuition reductions are based on standard tuition rate of $371.00 multiplied by the number of credits required to complete the degree.
