Take a look a that the experience of Kimberly from Wahiawa, HI. She earned an accounting degree from Kaplan University, and she is currently employed as a certified accountant.

Here's what she has to say:

Describe what you liked best about your online learning experience.

Kaplan University's online classes have so much to offer for someone that doesn't have the time or transportation to go to a classroom. They assist you and give you details on everything, while you're trying to be in the program. When you start your classes, it doesn't matter what time of the day it is, there is ALWAYS someone online willing to help you. Tutors are great, and I enjoy the fact that you can go into a chatroom and discuss your classwork with other students. It truly is a great college, and they make it convenient for everyone. They even give you a graduation ceremony at a place of your choice, and in my opinion, it doesn't get any better than that.

Describe what you liked least about your online learning experience.

My worst experience with them was the timing. We'd scheduled an appointment to help set me up with financial aid, and I missed it. Instead of scheduling another time, and understanding my family emergency, I had to go find another representative that would help me. After a few weeks, someone finally called me and we got everything taken care of, so that I could start school. I guess it was worth the wait, but no one should have to wait that long, especially if they're actually interested in starting school. Education is everything.

Has earning this online accounting degree helped or hurt your career?

This degree has helped my career in so many ways. I am now a certified accountant, and I make enough money for our home. We actually get to vacate for months at a time, and it's just nice. I'm so grateful for the opportunity.

What would you say to others who are looking into online accounting degrees?

It's well worth it. It's convenient, and there's no worrying. They help you in every way possible. So, do it!
