Heritage College Is Now Kaplan College


Changing a college’s name is fraught with risk and I’m not talking about making the transition from college to university either. A complete name change can confuse students, undermine the support of alumni, or meet with community opposition.

Kaplan CollegeOf course, a name change can be a very good thing and, in the case of Heritage College now calling itself Kaplan College, can strengthen a school’s identity. After all, when your parent company is owned by The Washington Post Company, you want to strengthen what you already have — a recognizable name in higher education.

By changing its name to Kaplan College, the Las Vegas-based school is now formally recognized as being part of the Kaplan family. Kaplan, Inc. is a global provider of education services.

“With campuses across the country, the Kaplan name brings national recognition to our school with a well known reputation among educators and employers,” said Ron Dillman, executive director of Kaplan College.

Kaplan College is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges of Technology (ACCSCT). The campus serves approximately 350 students and currently offers five associate degree and diploma programs. Among the areas of study offered include criminal justice, medical assistant, pharmacy technician, medical insurance coder & biller, and computer support technician.

Kaplan College is part of Kaplan Higher Education, which serves 80,000 students through more than 70 campus-based schools across the United States and in Europe. Kaplan also offers an online program for students who wish to further their education through distant learning.
