A&T Partners with Kaplan to Offer Students Free Comprehensive Test Prep Courses

By Labrina VanCliff / 10/12/2023 Academic Affairs

EAST GREENSBORO, N.C. (Oct. 12, 2023) – North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University is providing all of its undergraduate students with free test prep courses for graduate-level admissions exams, including the GRE, GMAT, LSAT, MCAT and professional certifications, through a new partnership with global educational services provider Kaplan.

Kaplan also will provide programs for N.C. A&T students around workforce readiness and development as part of its All Access initiative.

“We’re excited about this partnership, especially because Kaplan’s All Access initiative is at the forefront of equity, inclusion, and access,” said Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Tonya Smith-Jackson. “We look forward to this transformative partnership to assist our students in their professional growth as they will become tomorrow’s leaders in advancing the human condition.”

Through Kaplan’s All Access initiative, colleges and universities can help their students prepare for a variety of high-stakes admissions and licensing exams that they need to score well on to reach their ultimate professional goals — with zero out-of-pocket costs for students.

Kaplan has prepared students for standardized tests for 85 years, and A&T is its newest HBCU partner, joining Alabama A&M University, Delaware State University, Fisk University, Hampton University, Stillman College, Talladega College, Spelman College, and Xavier University of Louisiana.

“Kaplan’s All Access services are going to deliver a career path-changing educational experience to North Carolina A&T State University students and we couldn’t be more excited to partner with the school’s visionary administration to make this happen,” said James Polulach, director of institutional partnerships, Kaplan. “By becoming an All Access partner, university leaders are demonstrating that they are vested in their students’ success for the long term and see in them the leaders of tomorrow, in a wide variety of industries, from business to law to medicine and so much more. Kaplan’s All Access tears down barriers and instead widens the doors of opportunity for students who want to score competitively on important exams and supercharge their career trajectories.”

Cleveland State University, another Kaplan partner, announced in September it is extending the offering to its alumni. Most recently, Rutgers Law School signed up to offer all of its students free Kaplan bar exam prep courses.

A&T students interested in enrolling in a Kaplan test prep course should contact their academic advisor.
