Howard University to Offer Free Test Preparation Services to Undergraduate and Graduate Students

Historically Black Howard University in Washington, D.C., announced that through a new partnership with Kaplan Inc., it will immediately begin providing all of its undergraduate students with free test prep courses for graduate-level admissions exams, including the GRE, GMAT, LSAT, and MCAT. It will also offer free test prep for professional licensing exams for its students enrolled at its graduate schools. Additionally, all Howard students interested in taking the exams to be a CPA or CFA can also prepare with Kaplan for free.

“Part of our mission at Howard University is ensuring that education is accessible to students, regardless of their economic status,” said Anthony K. Wutoh, provost at Howard University. “Bringing Kaplan’s All Access initiative to Howard University will relieve the financial barrier many students are faced with when it comes to the critical step of preparing for graduate admissions tests and licensing exams. With immediate access to free test prep through this initiative, Howard students will be empowered to take the next step in their education, encouraging even more students to pursue their career goals and have a positive impact in their chosen profession.”

James Polulach, director of institutional partnerships at Kaplan notes that “many students see admissions and licensing exams as a barrier, instead of an opportunity, whether because of the price of preparation or because of how difficult the exam is. With All Access, Kaplan is eliminating these challenges, providing best-in-class instruction with zero out-of-pocket expenses for them.”
