Attorney General ends Kaplan investigation

in Uncategorized by

Attorney General Pam Bondi is ending an investigation into Kaplan that began nearly four years ago.

Bondi announced on Tuesday that her office has reached an agreement with Kaplan University and two other Kaplan units.

The state investigated Kaplan’s enrollment and marketing practices, as well as allegations that students were misled by marketing claims. The investigation began when Bill McCollum was attorney general.

Bondi’s office said that Kaplan cooperated in the investigation.

Kaplan has not admitted any wrongdoing, but the agreement requires the school to clearly disclose accurate information relating to accreditation, financial aid and the scope and nature of employment services they provide.

During the course of the investigation, Kaplan waived tuition and fees for more than 2,400 Florida students at a cost of more than $6 million.
