Today I was given a "Do Not Admit Slip" by financial aid. I go to handle the situation & I was told that I'm FORBIDDEN to be in class til I do so. Mind you, I pay $50/month just to attend there. & as far as classes go, don't bother wasting your money cause we barely use the textbooks anyway cause it's a month by month institution. There are good resources we use in class to help you in the legal field but hardly any good material is spoken about in class. Mainly gossip about irrelevant things or perhaps maybe what we saw on the news & even then it's only the "favorites" that matter. At one point I'd say some of the staff are prejudice, especially financial aid (they know your money situation to the core) & one dean in particular that is old & aggy. Overall this university is something at one point I was proud to attend but now all they make me feel is to drop out or transfer my credits somewhere else ... Not PSC, they are horrible too! But not as bad as Keiser. Point is, don't waste your time nor gas to go to a place like this .. it was called Keiser Career College to begin with & that's what it should've remained with their high school ways (even now accepting duel enrollment cause nobody wants to go there & they are STRUGGLING to keep their accreditation, I see why). Jobs are promised, doesn't happen... they'll help you write out yoir resume but that's about it. I'm SICK of this college taking advantage of their students .. I would call the department of education but it's not like they listen to us students anymore. Now on a Positive note, to anyone looking to further their future with college .. good for you! I hope you find the right college for you, maybe it's Keiser .. just don't say I didn't warn you based off of my own personal experiences.

I have been going to Keiser University for my B.S. in Health Science and now working on my Masters. All my teachers so far have been great. Except for this semester Dr. Patrick Wong. If anyone gets him as a professor please asked to be transfer right away horrible professor, takes days if not a week to answer email you have to email him 3 or 4 times to get any answer out of him. Also all my professors have been great and if you are just a little shy of your grade that you wanted to achieve in the class they are always willing to help you out, but this professor does not care about his students what so ever. I asked if there was anything I could do t raise my grade up a few points and it took him 2 days to answer me NO. What kind of professor is that, that is not willing to help his students out. HORRIBLE please if anyone goes to Keiser Univeristy and gets him please please get out of his class.

Keiser University is a joke.Some of their Professors are prejudice. I wish the Department of Education would shut it down.They don't provide you with the materials needed to be successful . Starting from the Dean who is rreally prejudice. She just recently received her PhD in 2006. How can you be a Dean with a PHD. the University is crooked and prejudice against certain races.. So done needs to take them to Court.

Keiser University MBA program was an exceptional program. During my tenure at Keiser University - Tallahassee campus the content of the program of study was relayed to myself in an engaging and informative manner. The instructors delivered the material with clarity and precision. They saw the individual needs of their students and tailored the learning experience to fit each student. I truly believe that my MBA will open numerous opportunities to explore the workforce more. I am now in a distinctive caliber of individuals who have taken education to another level. The experience has been rewarding and truly one that I will never forget. The fostering of relationships I have built with students and instructors has enhanced my personal and professional experiences to see things in a broader, yet descriptive and informative view. I'm now in a profound position to venture into the unknown territories of an entrepreneur with precision . Thank you Keiser!!

WARNING program is not JCERT accredited! This puts you at a huge disadvantage in a highly competitive job market. Also the program director is under qualified and makes things overly difficult. She does not even have a graduate level education and is very new to the job. She'll assign reading each week (100 pages plus) and test on it each Friday, without ever touching on most of the material that ends up in the test. Shop around... you can do better.

Over all, Great Experience. This school is not for everyone. The Gen eds are accelerated so you learn a normal semester in 4 weeks. I loved it because I hate school and was able to finish quickly and I maintained a 4.0 in Gen Eds. The actual nursing program was different. 4 month long semesters instead of 4 weeks and pretty tough but i was still able tough maintain As & Bs for final grades. Our class had it rough - new instructors, unfocused instructors, instructors leaving - in the middle of the semesters. A lot of our clinical time was cut and we were left without preceptors in the last semester and given some lame excuse as to why. Also, this is a private school, not public, which makes it much more expensive. I had the GI Bill so I didn't have to worry about that. One thing that was great was that they make your schedule, no waiting in line for classes that may be full. Another thing was that they handled all the financial stuff and submitted everything for me. One piece of advice, buy your books on line and ask the class ahead of you what they used. You don't use about half the books on the list each semester. Huge waste of money. VA book stipend doesn't cover it.

I wanted to ask if the Nursing Program prepared you and got you ready for the NCLEX? I am highly considering an non-traditional school, as I have to work and go to school to even live day to day.How many months were used of your GI Bill? I have 18 left- Long story short, I felt that a degree in Healthcare Management was the RIGHT choice at the time- 18 months later- I Don't agree :) Thanks for the help, Im really considering their nursing program and wanted some REAL feedback

Yes, the program will prepare you for the NCLEX. The actual program is 16 mo but keep in mind you need to have pre-reqs also. With that in mind, if you have been rated by the VA, you may be entitled to other compensation. I plan to go back and finish my BSN with other entitlements. Like you, I started out in another field wasting time and money. Feeel free to ask any other Qs. I'll answer what i can. Hope this helps.

I am a veteran looking at this school for nursing as well. I wanted to know how this schools nursing program stacks up next to some of the neighboring state and community colleges around.

One of the most important things to look for is if the school is accredited or not, Keiser is. Eastern Florida State University, formerly Brevard Community College, is not. The last class they graduated told me horrible things about the program: no pharmacology class, a ton of self teaching, teachers quit, among other stuff. I've taken classes both places and the quality of instructors are hit or miss. In this area, I think UFC and Keiser are the best schools for nursing. At UFC you'll finish with a BSN; Keiser with an ASN or ADN -same thing. I'll finish my BSN while I work. Hope this helps. Feel free to ask other questions.

I would not waste my money on Keiser. It is extremely expensive and you end up having to teach yourself due to the lack of good and professional professors. My time at that school was miserable and I even had a professor that was so unprofessional and terrible that it made me almost want to quit college because of her. This is not a good school. Yeah you will get a degree but that's about it. On top of leaving with an extreme amount of debt, you leave and don't even get contacted for job opportunities "as promised" in their scheme to get people to apply. As my first college experience I will definitely say that this is the worst school ever. Think twice before you give them your time and your money.

I started off in the PTA program in May of 2014. The program itself is 11months long and accelerated. I was dismissed during Kinesiology on my first attempt in this program. I had 48 muscles to learn within one week of the upper extremity. I didn't think of it being a scam at that particular moment. I did the re-entry process and had 3 months to wait to re-enter the program in March 2015. I got done with the re-entry processing before Thanksgiving of 2014 and would be restarting the program in March of 2015. I had more time to go over the muscles and the OIA and Ns of each muscle that I knew would be coming up for comps. To make a long story short I was successful in Kinesiology and progressed all the way to Modalities. The whole time I maintained a 3.19 GPA. I felt I was actually going to complete this program. Unfortunately, the school hired on a new instructor because they lost a previous instructor and took nearly a year to fill that position. This instructor had no control over her class. A very unorganized instructor that was easily flustered when you would ask questions. When time came for learning ultrasound modalities, we were not able to touch the equipment until the day just before a lab competency. I hardly think 6 hours is hardly a sufficient amount of time to prepare for a lab competency. I ended up failing the comp on my third try which has now permanently dismissed me from the program. Then the program director emails me the following day to come speak to the Dean about my educational options. I am not so sure about re-starting a new major in an allied health program at this university . I have read most of the reviews on this site and see the word SCAM pop up for this particular university in most all A.S programs. The Dean seems to want to push me just into another program. I have got my transcripts and looking at other options. Just really discouraging to know that a person with a B average is put out of the program and students in the 70% range are allowed to continue on. Now I'm stuck with 8 months of education and not able to do anything with it , along to facing close to $20k in debt with np degree. I think I better look into other PTA programs at a state college before ever returning to Keiser

My personal experience at Keiser wasn't good at all. The only good memory that I have from here are my classmates and one of the teachers which was very professional and dedicated . But school overall was pretty bad the coordinator for the PTA program make most of the students cry just because she feels like she own the world and also students personal life's . Financial Aid also a big disaster . I don't know how it works for other programs at the school but for the PTA in the first month of class they give you 2 test that not even are suppose to give you, they test you about another topic" Kinesiology" and the first class is Introduction to PTA , the point is that if you don't pass does 2 test with more than 70% they dismiss you from the program . Not recommend this school at least for this program. There are many school which are accredited as them by CAPTE and without the ridiculous policies.

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.

Have you managed to fix your situation? I'm in a similar situation where i withdrew from there and the new college i want to go to said that i need a letter from Keiser in order to be able to fully register with them. Either that or get at least a letter of non-attendance, since they accessed my transcripts.
