The Ohio Institute of Photography and Technology has undergone a name change and is now called Kaplan College. Located at 2800 E. River Road in Dayton, OH, the institute was established in 1971 as a center for photography instruction and the main building was opened to accommodate more activity in 1977. After further expansions in 1984, the school began offering allied health curriculum and was renamed Ohio Institute of Photography and Technology in 1991. Since then, a number of additional programs have been added to the school’s roster and additional classroom facilities were opened in Point West Business Park. Kaplan Higher Education directs the school’s activities today as Kaplan College.
Accreditation for OIP&T Kaplan College is provided by the ACCSCT. The Accrediting Commission of the Career Schools & Colleges of Technology covers the general curriculum, while the Medical Assisting Program at Kaplan is accredited by the Allied Health Ed Programs’ Commission on Accreditation.
Currently, the school is offering associate degrees as well as certificates and diplomas. Kaplan has retained the original focus of OIP and offers a number of programs in photography. The Associate of Applied Science in Photographic Technology offers students the opportunity to get into this exciting world, with specializations available in Commercial Photography, General Applied Photography and Portrait Photography. The popular Allied Health Program features an AAS or diploma in Medical Assisting as well as a Pharmacy Technician Diploma. In addition, students can opt for an AAS in Criminal Justice, a Computer Support Technician Diploma, or diplomas in HVAC Technology and Electrical Technology.
