Kaplan College (formerly Southeastern Career Institute) started in Dallas as Southeastern Paralegal Institute in 1987 to serve the Dallas/Fort Worth metropolis's need for trained professionals. The School was opened by the Denver Paralegal Institute Acquisition Corporation, an owned subsidiary of the Denver Paralegal Institute, Ltd., whose paralegal training programs have been approved by the American Bar Association since 1979.

The Dallas campus has expanded its program offerings throughout the years, and in August 2009, Southeastern Career Institute became Kaplan College.
