Unless you are considering enrolling in one of the many programs offered by Kaplan College, please do not disturb anyone from the campus. None of the Kaplan College employees will be able to help you with any of your questions.

Yes! We only have 10-15 seats available per class. Rendering a timely payment reserves your seat.
It depends. The state will use its discretion with issuing you a guard card. The state does not release the criteria for those who have a criminal record.
In most cases the state will deny your application for the guard card:
1. If you are on probation or parole, or
2. Have been convicted of a felony in the past 7 years or,
3. Have certain misdemeanors within the past 3-5 years,
*Note that misdemeanors are on a case-by-case basis, but it appears felonies will not be considered. If the state denies your application, we do not refund any fees.

2. Pen or Pencil.
3. Paper for note taking.

No, however for a class fee of $150.00, the instructor can schedule a one-on-one course with you as his schedule will allow. Typically, he is very flexible (24/7).
