Denison University Offers Students Free Comprehensive Prep for Graduate-Level Admissions Exams Through Partnership with Kaplan


Granville, OH (January 17, 2023) ⁠— Denison University, a private liberal arts college located in Granville, Ohio, announced today that it will award 50 test prep courses for graduate-level admissions exams, including the GRE®, LSAT®, and MCAT®, through a new partnership with global educational services provider Kaplan. The university will award the free courses as part of its ongoing efforts to support the career and education aspirations of its students, including those from historically underrepresented socioeconomic groups.

“By eliminating the cost barrier to great test preparation, we can ensure that every Denisonian has the opportunity to obtain the high scores they are capable of on graduate admission exams,” said Sara Stasko, senior associate director, healthcare and clinical research, Denison University. “We are proud to add this exceptional resource to our many strategies for supporting students in successfully launching into their careers and lives”. 

Kaplan has prepared students for standardized tests for nearly 85 years, and Denison University is one of its newest partners to offer its students free test prep for high stakes exams. Kaplan also recently launched its All Access initiative, in which colleges and universities can help their students prepare for a variety of high-stakes admissions and licensing exams, free of charge, that they need to take to reach their ultimate career goals.

“Providing free test prep is going to be a real game changer in these select students’ educational and professional journeys and we’re proud to partner with Denison University as part of both our efforts to level the playing field and promote access,” said James Polulach, director of institutional partnerships, Kaplan. “Many students understandably see admissions exams as a barrier, instead of an opportunity, whether because of the price of preparation or because of how difficult the exam is.  We’re helping them tear down this barrier and reach their full potential. We’ll be announcing additional partnerships in this area soon, as more colleges and universities recognize its value.”
