Kaplan's Starting Line Tuition Assistance Program 
You’ve got options. We’ve got your back.
 

Financial needs shouldn't stand in the way of achieving your goals.  At Kaplan, it doesn't. Our Starting Line program helps talented, financially limited students get the prep they need and may cover up to 60% of the cost of tuition for eligible programs. 

Though we attempt to offer this option to as many students as possible, discounts are based on certain academic and financial need requirements.

Kaplan-AACP PCAT Scholarships now available via The Starting Line

Kaplan's Official PCAT Prep is now more accessible than ever before! If you’re a pre-pharmacy student, you may qualify for full-tuition scholarships through the Kaplan-AACP Foundations of the Future Pharmacist Program. This is exclusive to Kaplan!

Kaplan is the only test prep company endorsed by the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) as the Official Provider of PCAT Prep, and both believe that all students should have access to the best PCAT prep. That's why each year Kaplan offers 250 full-tuition PCAT course scholarships for qualified students. 

Scholarships can be used for any Kaplan PCAT Prep option--Live Online, In Person, or Self-Paced--and are valid through the end of the calendar year in which they are awarded.

If you’re a pre-pharm student, apply through The Starting Line website. Check out our application process in the next section. 

 
User-added imageIf you don’t receive a full-tuition scholarship because AACP funds have been exhausted, you may be eligible for 25-60% tuition assistance as seen on The Starting Line website.
