Last Updated: December 29, 2020
We’re keeping an eye on the COVID-19 situation and will update existing and prospective students as more information becomes available, and we will continue to update these FAQs.
If my exam is canceled or postponed, will I get extended online access?
We understand the inconvenience and frustration that is caused when exams are postponed or canceled, and we are committed to doing our part to mitigate the impact of the virus. In order to support our candidates, we will be extending online access for candidates whose exams have been postponed or canceled.
For the latest information and updates on exam status, we recommend that you visit program websites:
Are in-person classes canceled?
Kaplan Schweser has decided to cancel all live, in-person Classes, Review Workshops, and Mock Exams indefinitely. Our top priorities are the health and safety of employees, students, customers, and the community while continuing to provide the highest quality educational programs and support under any circumstances. As you are aware, things in our communities continue to change rapidly relative to COVID-19.
If you have registered for a live, in-person event, we are notifying all customers and, whenever possible, we will provide you with other options such as online, self study, or virtual live online classes to ensure you receive the education and support you need from Kaplan. In many cases, we can help you find an alternative online option, so you can continue with your educational program. If that is not an option, we will reschedule once we have re-established live, in-person events at your location.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact us at 877.311.9770 so that we can help you make the right decision for your needs.
Please remember, even if you are feeling a little unwell, please stay home. Staying home when sick is the best way to prevent the spread of germs. We will work with you to make up a class or provide other online or self study options, so you can complete your education successfully.
What if my company or association is hosting a class at my location?
If your company, society, or association has arranged for a Kaplan program at your location, any decisions regarding changes to the delivery of the program will be made jointly between Kaplan and your organization.
Kaplan or your employer will notify students via email of any program changes at your location. Feel free to contact your company, association, society, or other representative for further details.
Is Kaplan offering any free resources to workers laid-off or furloughed due to the coronavirus pandemic?
Yes, we are offering free online education and skills development courses to individuals who have been furloughed or laid off from their jobs due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
