Students recieve free prep classes from Kaplan

Many students are trying to decide what the next step is after graduating from Dillard University. Although there are many options, one of the main concerns is passing the Graduate Record Exam (GRE), the entrance exam into post undergraduate study except law, business and medicine.

Kaplan has agreed to offer Dillard University students a free class session and practice test. The free class will be on Oct. 24, at 6 p.m. in DUICEF. The session will include a preview of a class taken at the Kaplan center and a full presentation by the associate director of Kaplan, Mark Reimonenq. The Kaplan center offers a variety of test preps such as GRE, GMAT and LSAT courses. The classes are designed to teach test strategies, critical thinking skills, and to give an individualized study plan.

Kaplan is one of the world’s leading providers of lifelong education with operations around the world. Reimonenq said, “One of my priorities is to develop a strong relationship with Dillard University.”

Kaplan is currently working with the KB Clark Psychology Club, which is also providing a low cost GRE preparation course at the university.

“Kaplan has really been working with us to make the GRE prep course a major success. We know that generally the classes provided by other sources such as Kaplan could be very expensive. That is why we started the prep course,” said Mia Ellis, president of the KB Clark Psychology Club. “I appreciate all the help that Kaplan has given to the KB Clark Club.”

The KB Clark Psychology Club GRE preparation classes will began Oct. 6 and will end on Oct. 27. The class provided by Kaplan will be for the entire student body including those that registered for the KB Clark GRE preparation course. This will be additional class preparation for those registered with the KB Clark Pyschology Club.

Kaplan classes are discounted for Dillard students. The discounted rate is $795; $595 if students have been awarded pell grants. The savings range from $500-$1,000.

“The best result comes from not waiting until the last minute. It’s best to start getting prepared before your senior year in college,” said Reimonenq. “The goal is to help students achieve their career goals one success story at a time.”

According to Reimoneq, the program guarantes that if a student’s scores do not improve, Kaplan will refund the money.
