    Does anyone have facts on Kaplan College? Is it a respectable School? Does anyone know if they have sought regional accreditation?

    Kaplan is DETC accredited, so they are most definitely respectable. However, DETC accreditation is usually thought of in academia as inferior to regional accreditation, so there are limits placed on Kaplan degrees (transfer of credits and admission to RA programs).

    I have never seen anything that mentions Kaplan seeking regional accreditation.

    Bruce, Kaplan College, which offers online BS programs is NCA accredited. It is the Kaplan College for Professional Studies that is DETC accredited. Depending on what he is looking for, it may be NCA accredited or DETC accredited.

    Both are owned by the same company.
