Horrible experience with Keiser University

This is a horrible school, out of personal experience DON'T GO HERE! I graduated high school a semester early to be able to get a head start on college. I remembered that a representative from Keiser had visited my high school a couple years back so I contacted the school (in Tampa) and spoke to an admissions counselor (Shannel). She didn't give me any real information, she was basically just trying to get me to start as soon as possible. While I was discussing future career options. she was basically just telling me that I would only be a good fit for Business Administration just on that sole meeting with her. I ended up changing my major a couple times because every time I said I wanted to do Nursing she would tell me that it wasn't a good fit for me. I started school and only finished one class because the teaching was horrible. You basically opened the book and taught yourself while the professor took roll! That's another thing, if you missed one day of school, about ten people would call, text, and email you to make sure you were coming back ( that seemed quite weird). After I finished the class, I had to do a "review" which was fraudulent because all the answers were automatically saved on the computer. Nevertheless, after that class I never went back. Now I am trying to pursue a degree with another school but I need a transcript from Keiser in order to register. Keiser says that it's on hold because I owe almost $9,000 in tuition for a semester even though I only took one class. I did have financial aid and a scholarship through Keiser but the Bursars office said I no longer qualified since I had withdrawn. So basically the only option they are giving me is to go back to a horrible school or stay without a degree. I have called the school many times and no one seems to care about my situation or is trying to help me. They didn't inform me about any of the consequences of withdrawing, they were just pushing me to sign papers left and right to get me into class as soon as possible. All in all, just don't choose this school!

I actually graduated from Keiser in 2011 with Nuc Med degree. Keiser pushed me into the program saying I would make certain amount of money. Never found a job, NUC MED IS SATURATED and Keiser continues to allow this program, telling students they will assist with job placements. YEA RIGHT. I went back to Keiser pursuing Nursing program, got accepted. I was suppose to start in May in Tampa. The Friday before classes start I get a phone call saying I owe $5000 from Lakeland. I was taking online classes towards my BSN and I withdrew from Lakeland campus so I could attend the campus in Tampa ( because there nursing program accepted me before Lakeland) . No one told me I would be penalize because I decided to go to the same exact school but a different campus.

Worst school I've ever attended.

This is the WORST school I've ever attended, Scam is a understatement. I am a military veteran using the GI Bill to further my education and these SCAM artist are taking advantage of people for personal growth. I was studying radiologic technology and my total amount for my tuition was a little over 16k. So I signed up with my GI benefits, and after 3 months of waiting and paying for books out of my own pocket (which I've NEVER done before at any other school I've attended) I ask the finance department what's the deal. They never even submitted my benefits to the VA. And I withdrew from the school for medical reasons and now I supposedly owe them 8k out of 16k for a 2 year degree that I attended 3 months of and its their fault they didn't submit my benefits. This place is a SCAM to the fullest. Now I'm at Everest University and I Love IT. Best vibe and experience I've ever had. Not to mention I'm actually learning something from the teachers who talk about the actual class work instead of how their weekend was and not make me teach myself and expect me to pay them 16k. So take my advice and stay away from keiser.

I started off in the Medical Assistant program with the understanding I would need to secure a site for my externship/perceptorship within the first 6months. 3 months go by and an academic advisor calls me to find our if I was successful or not. I told her no I was not. She proceeded to tell me, "oh yeah, your state is very difficult to secure a facility. We have only been successful in one facility." The facility is 3hours away from me. So for 3months I would have to drive 3 hours there and 3 hours back, find daycare for my two kids, come up with gas money all to volunteer (no pay) for 3 months in order to graduate. So I switched my degree to Health Services Administration just so I could graduate with a degree of some sort. I get to the end once again and am told I must start a new financial aide package for my LAST class. Financial aid will not cover my last class so I must come up with $1700 out of my own pocket or qualify through a private lender. Neither of which I can do. So $30,000 of student loans later, 2 years of my time online, I have NOTHING to show for it.

I started Keiser after leaving Florida Career College in 2013. I love this school and the financial aid people helped me find enough money to cover tuition without paying out of pocket, even with my bad credit score. I start the core nursing program on May 4th at the West Palm Beach campus and I have heard nothing but great things about the professors and the program itself. Yes, there is a dress code and yes it is expensive but it is worth it. School is one step in order to get your life together and for the other people complaining about the dress code and expenses need to realize that they are not being made to come to school.

This is an awful school. Terrible experience. Don't bother going to this school unless you want to be treated like a high school student. You are surrounded in a class full of ignorant people, who instead of working together with you, bully you like you were in grade school. Not saying everyone was this way, but my class had absolutely no respect for anyone. My teacher in front of everyone asked why I got the grade that I got on a test, which was an 85. Mind you, I have children at home to care for, and I was too tired to study. Not that it was everyone else's business to know anyway, but, she blasted that question in front of everyone while returning the graded exams. And, in one other instance we got into an argument and she chose to ask everyone in the class, if what I was saying was true. What went through my mind was, first of all.. is this argument between you and I, or you, I, and the class? By the way, there are completely unprofessional, and rude staff that likes to gossip while you take tests (*in the library*). Almost all the computers are damaged, and wifi sucks. Bathrooms stink all the time, and there is mildew/mold everywhere. Unbelievably, we were asked to go in and clean a classroom, before using it for the rest of the term. Are you kidding? For the tuition that we pay, we are required to clean up a classroom that was left a mess by the people who were there before us? Let's not forget to mention the one roach that crossed the hallway once. Vending machines in the "cafeteria" ate up your money, and it was a pain in the ass to get it back. Last but not least, the icing on the cake. I graduated in February 1, 2015. Since then, it has been up to Keiser University to send my transcripts or what ever document is required to the appropriate organization so that I could take my Registered medical exam and my X-ray license (Basic machine operator) test. We are now in April and I have not been able to take either exam because Keiser University Orlando forgot to send my transcripts. I already fixed my problem with my Registered Medical Assisting exam (application was rejected because of my transcripts not being sent from keiser), and I just received a letter from the department of health saying that they also rejected my X-ray license application, because they are missing my transcripts as well. So, please decide very well if you would like to attend Keiser. It is very costly, for the very poor treatment you are in for. Not all the campuses may be this way, but just do your research. This was just my experience here in the Keiser University Orlando Campus.

I currently attend Keiser Melbourne as a MA student, I was skeptical at first because of all the negative reviews however I am happy with my decision. I finish in a few months, and I must say the teachers are great. It is a fast paced learning environment, and its more expensive. I agree with some of these reviews it is not for everyone. I like the hands on experience here and the fact that I will graduate with my AS degree along with some certifications that I was not aware of when starting - those include phlebotomist, EKG, CPR, and basic x-ray.

I'm actually looking at this school because I feel like I'm getting the run around at EFSC. All of the healthcare programs appear to be limited access and I don't feel like I'm being given a clear direction.

Degree Program SatisfactionReviews_blue_dotReviews_blue_dotReviews_blue_dotReviews_blue_dotReviews_grey_dot

Doctoral study is an intense program for those who are seeking a terminal degree. Students need to approach the program with resilience, open-minded, and self-motivated. Graduate school students need to be ready to face a lengthy journey. They should also be opened to share their experiences with other classmates. To be successful in this program requires student's engagement. Faculty members are available to help students develop learning. Doctoral programs require that doctoral students be disciplined as well as being ready academically. Doctoral students are asked to have commendable writing skills, be able to work independently, and cooperatively. Bowen (2005) suggested, that students peruse the subject in their field, and conduct research while reading and writing. Doctoral students need to remember to raise questions to faculty members. We are here to help you be successful. Institutions are not there to fail any student, yet they are very happy when students are able to handle pressure. Learning is a novel discovery therefore, students should enjoy learning while they are looking forward to become experts in their area of studies.

This is absurd. The comment addressing doctoral candidates seems as though it was written my an elementary student! The comment is rife (look it up) with grammatical errors that would be obvious to the most prosaic (again, look it up) of high school graduates. WHY would anyone choose this school or ANY one of these "private" schools over an inexpensive community college or state University? I have my doctorate and have had s long and successful career. I attended a REPUTABLE school....not something advertised on television. My Bachelor's came from a public state school and was about one quarter of this school's tuition. In my opinion this school is a diploma mill who counts on you being UNsuccessful ! You're responsible for your loans and they get paid regardless. My advice would be to be to CHECK YOUR COMMUNITY COLLEGE. These careers are not paying enough to support yourself and pay back the absurd student loan debt. This is all my opinion based on my (and my adult children's) experience. Please search the internet on these sorts of schools. So many of them have had legal issues etc. DO YOUR RESEARCH.

This school is not for everybody, for me it was obvious to choose this school. Main reason: They accepted every single one of my credits to transfer in. Other schools (FIU, FAU, and UM) took 1/2 the credits Keiser did. I already earned my A.A from SCCC (State University of New York's community college) so I was unwilling to retake classes that I've already had (and earned an A). The one class at a time schedule is great, there is nothing more stressful than having to take 4 finals in one week! Here I feel like you can really learn rather than try to cram just to pass. Focusing on one class at a time was the way to go for me. The professors at the Miami campus were excellent, but the office staff were horrible. They misplace everything (including your official transcripts, so get everything in writing that they have them, best way is through e-mail), they are very rude, most of them are young and couldn't seem to care less about their job. I recently transferred to the Ft. Lauderdale campus (also switching programs), and in the short amount of time I've dealt with them I am pleased with their professionalism and respect. Overall, know what to expect if you choose Keiser you will work your butt off (they're not going to hand you a degree, which is what some people expect).

I just wanna say that the dress code is ridiculous. You have to dress like you would for a legit business. Like dresses, no jeans, nothing sorter than knee length and you have to ear things with sleeves (no dresses with tank top straps) You also have to wear close toed shoes. And if you're taking any of the nursing programs or anything like that then you need to wear scrubs to school everyday. But other than that and being very expensive, it's not a bad school. Everybody is pretty nice and the way they set up the schedule is great. Basically you have just one class a month instead of taking a bunch of classes at once. I go to class 3 days a week for 4 hours a day. So if you do the math, thats 48 hours of class. They do give a lot of homework though. But again, the dress code is so stupid. I had to get all new clothes and if you are going to an expensive college, it sucks to have to buy all new clothes too. The financial aid really sucks too, like all of the reviews say. Im going to a community college soon so i can save money and don't have to follow their mormon dress code.

Dress code is not stupid. They are preparing you for YOUR future in your career of choice. if and when you get a REAL job they have dress code you will have to follow or have NO job. so take into consideration they are looking out for your best interest.

The school is fine for vocational programs but DO NOT ENTER THIS SCHOOL IF YOU PLAN ON FURTHERING YOUR EDUCATION! The biomedical and biotechnical programs are brand new at this campus this year and are a JOKE they are science degrees that are suppose to either set you up for medical school or have you ready to go work in a lab but they have NO lab equipment! Well besides the million dollar ventilator used to rid the room of toxic smells LOL! Go to a community college! They'll have all the equipment you need to get your hands on learning that will really prepare you to work in a lab and a quarter of the cost! They also hire teachers that have never taught before! Stay far away from physics at this school! He's 80 years old and I hope you're best friends with Sheldon Cooper because if not, you'll be teacher yourself physics. There is also a total disconnect between the office and the class rooms! The teachers have to curve the grades so much because keiser doesn't let anyone fail. You can do NOTHING and get a C! Not fair when you want to learn and actually know what you're doing. And one last point I want to make to save everyone in the future! IF YOU HAVE TAKEN A CLASS AT ANOTHER INSTITUTE AND THEY TELL YOU ITS NOT THE SAME COURSE BECAUSE THE FIRST NUMBER IN THE COURSE NAME IS DIFFERENT, THEY ARE LYING! ITS THE SAME EXACT CLASS AND YOU DONT HAVE TO TAKE IT AGAIN! GO TO THE OFFICE AND TELL THEM THEY MADE A MISTAKE! They get millions of dollars a year from poor souls who trust them! SCAM! SCAM! SCAM! I am writing this to save even just one person from going through what I did.

They took all of my classes from my community college and it brought the program down to 16 months and a lot cheaper! Maybe you should talk to another counselor! If they only have one, call another Keiser.

I tried to prove and show that I had taken and past 9 months of classes they offered in the same program i filed out of in my second year. They said no you must retake them.

I said well what if I pay the tuition but agree that I don't need to retake the courses in the program I already passed. They said no.

But it doesn't matter what college you go to for a program. Program credits are not transferable they are only good for the program at that school. That's what K told me anyhow that could be a lie.
