Complaint / review text:
Iam a former student of Kaplan University online and Iam totally disabled. I notified Kaplan of that fact prior to enrolling, With that I asked if they would need anything from my doctor and they told me no, just do not talk about it. I began to confide in some of my professors when I began to have problems and I was told to ignore it it'll all go away.
I am Bipolar (seriously) panic disorder etc. And have taken meds for years and will be on them for the rest of my life. Stress and being over tired can and does trigger the cycles. I was becoming very manic in the morning, deeply depressed by noon and seriously angry by nighttime. I had no idea what was going on and would of followed anybody I thought could help me. The longer I stayed at kaplan the worse I got, my medication was not even helping me anymore. I was barely getting out of bed.
I left kaplan after I discovered the career in criminal justice I was working towards, probation officer upon graducation I would not be eligable for due to my disablities and past hospitalizations. This also excluded me from any related field, I would not be able to deal with the stress etc. I was also to old to even place an application. I approached kaplan with that and there response was oh well. They did not act suprised or even sorry etc. The degree I earned at Kaplan was totally useless even if I went on and completed my degree, the people who get the good jobs all have Masters Degree. This infomration came directly from The Human Resource Dpts. Dealing with being disabled is the stigma's all still seem to apply. People in general run the other direction like they are going to catch something. This has left me feeling alone, Iam attempting to file against kaplan for vioalaton of my civil rights. The one thing I have learned numbers count and get people's attention. Please speak up.
