Kaplan University

Salem Community College has established an articulation agreement with Kaplan University. Kaplan University will facilitate the transfer of SCC associate-degree graduates to baccalaureate programs at Kaplan. This advanced start baccalaureate program (also know as a "2+2 option") is designed to maximize a student's transfer credit award.

SCC students in good standing and eligible graduates will be reviewed as pre-qualified applicants for Kaplan University degree programs. Applicants will be required to complete all Kaplan University admissions requirements in force at the time of application.

To be eligible for application to an advanced start bachelor's program, a student must be an associate-degree graduate or must submit a letter from SCC indicating that the student is in good standing, the expected date of graduation and the degree expected to be earned. Upon graduation, the student must submit proof of having been awarded an associate degree.

Upon acceptance and signing of the Kaplan University enrollment agreement, transfer students will be subject to all Kaplan University policies, codes of conduct, college procedures, and requirements, as described in the Kaplan University catalog.

Kaplan University will complete a course-by-course review of all transfer credits submitted on official transcripts from SCC. Kaplan University reserves the right to make a final determination on all matters related to transferability and course equivalencies.

Kaplan offers a 10 percent tuition reduction to SCC graduates, reduced tuition to active military and veterans, and scholarships.

Kaplan University, which offers over 100 degree programs, is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and is a member of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
