Keiser University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (184)
People complaining about Keiser, please just SHUT up. Some complains here about Keiser are legitimate but other people are are just winning. If you can't do your school homework or fail exams, don't blame Keiser please. I have 6 friends who attended Keiser and all of the graduated just fine. I too graduated in 2015 with honors. Keiser is actually one of the BEST collages in Central Florida but of course it's VERY EXPENSIVE because it's a private institution. But I love the fact that students ONLY focus on one class per month. I would personally NOT recommend any one to do their bachelors programs but their AA degrees are great!
I got my AA and BA in Health Services Administration from Keiser University online campus and was told about all the possibilities after graduation. I received no help in finding employment nothing was offered. They tried to recruit me to get my masters from Keiser. The education was meaningful, I did learn. The promises are empty though. I got my MBA with a concentration in Healthcare Management from Columbia Southern University this an online school as well. I am now a Prevention Specialist in the Health Department making $25, 872.00 and I owe $91, 300.00 in student loan debt. I cannot get a mortgage, car loan, credit card with such a high debt to income ratio, My credit is clean I have no negatives on my credit report. But this student loan is so huge! I am just stuck and cannot do anything. Please beware of student loan debts and read everything. When someone tells you it is only $10,000. you need to see in writing is it $10,000. per semester, per class, per month, per year etc. Please know the facts. Make sure your school is fully accredited by all accrediting agencies and not by one accrediting agencies. Make sure your degree means something get a degree that you can get certified. Certification is what gives you the pay. It says you have done the courses and passed a state test and you are capable according to the state. Do not do what I did my life is on hold my life is stuck.
DO NOT ATTEND THIS SCHOOL. I decided to go back to school last winter. I worked with a girl whom was attending Keiser University for her AS in nursing. My children are older , so I decided to make my career a go! I was super excited. I started Keiser in May. My first class was online and went fantastic. My second was basic English and the instructor was amazing. My English Comp. went completely down hill. Don't get me wrong, I made an A, but had to fight for it! The instructor was giving me someone else's grade, which were poor. I had to remind her several times to change the grade , which she never did. I had to call the dean at the end of the class and have the proper grade put in. Why do I need to babysit a grownup? I took American Litt. on line , which was fine and was looking forward to A&P. I started A&P two weeks ago and it has been a complete nightmare. When I started the class the instructor seemed okay. He spent a little too much time in my taste dabbling in people's business instead of teaching. We went over chapter one on an overhead projector, and outlined things we needed to know for chapters 1-4 . The next day we logged into Connect (online homework), which half the class could not log into. When we did get into Connect it was set up for A&P 2 not 1. The professor "claimed " he would have it fixed by the next day, but wanted homework due by 12 midnight that following Sunday, plus he changed the syllabus and test dates 3 times , and gave us the wrong pre-test so we had to retake it. To make a long story short I complained to the dean , and the dean over the homework and it not being setup. The dean "talked to the professor " . The professor got ticked off and pulled me out of class and "asked me what my problem was? I told him he was making me uncomfortable. He told me my name was brought up in a staff meeting. I walked back into the classroom and the bullying continued. I went to the dean and she acted understanding, because I dropped the class. I was being taught NOTHING. She acted kindly and dropped me from the class, but told me I couldn't get a refund and when I take A&P again my loan will be billed again. That's crap! Services were not rendered. I dropped the class for being bullied and lack of proper instruction. The professor changed our bone test twice, never went over anything in the book accept an outline of what we needed for all our tests 1-4 . You're on your own. Might as well take it online if you want to teach yourself. The dean wants me to give this a second chance, after knowing this situation will probably be academic suicide. They care about the money, not the students best interest. I did the work and I am a straight A student. I deserve a decent education for the money I pay to this institution. I will be withdrawing soon.
I just got off the phone with the Admissions Reps at University of South Florida and they are accepting all of my Keiser credits for my admissions. They told me that as long as the private schools people attend are regionally accredited, they transfer. I will have to pick up my 2 foreign languages though bc Keiser does not require them and public universities do. Now for my opinion: Keiser definitely served it's purpose for me to obtain my AA with relatively low stress levels. If that is your goal and you don't mind paying a pretty penny, it's ok. However, I would not recommend going further with a Bachelors at Keiser. Their classes are easy and most employers don't look at them as being as worthy as if your bachelors was from a state college or university. For an AA it's fine because it is not specific to your field. Take my advice though...if you go to Keiser for an AA, transfer to a public school after that point. That's what I'm doing and everything's been fine. Once you get to a bachelors level you need the schools reputation to land you the job and that is what Keiser won't give you an advantage with.
I wanted to go into the DMS program. When I first met with an academic adviser I could tell something was strange. You have one month to complete on class. In all honesty I thought I could do it. Taking physics is horrible. The actual DMS program director told me this was the hardest course I would take before I actually get into the program. Gee thanks for the confidence booster. Apparently before I started my physics class I was supposed to do a "pre-course workshop" which I didn't find out till my 3rd day in class. I emailed the director(the person who actually sent me the email) telling her how I could not get into it and she had no clue what I was talking about. I sent her the original email and she never wrote back after that. How are you going to tell me to do something and then when I have questions you don't respond back. Real professional. Everyone here is so fake. The professors really don't care. No it's the 2nd week and I'm going to have to withdrawal from this class. Oh yeah and it's $2,000 for one class. When I went to fsw( a community college) it cost 3,000 for 5 classes. Such a rip off and the fact that I have to drive 45 mins just to get here. Oh and they have a dress code. Dress like you're going to an interview. If you don't obey you'll get a warning and then kicked out of class. This really bothers me. I'm extremely uncomfortable in the clothes I have to wear and it does effect my learning. I can't focus because I have to wear an uncomfortable dress. No one really tells you any information. I found all this stuff out into my first week of school. Worst school I've ever been to. Oh yeah and most of your credits won't transfer to a real college
I graduated from Keiser on May 31, 2015. When I left no one added classes or charged me anything at all. They gave me my diploma and that was it. I have never had an issue with FA, getting in contact with someone or being charged for classes I failed or didn't take. I even had a baby by c-section in November of 2014, every one of my Professors left my classes open for weeks after the close of the class so that I could still complete my degree on time. Idk if I was just lucky or what but I didn't have any of the issues people are posting about.
Worse school I have ever attended. Teachers just do not care about students at all. Attendance and tardiness is such a big issue, that is just ridiculous, and sometimes things happen, but they just don't understand, and of course THEY can be late. As a student, I felt like they were doing me a favor, instead of me paying for good education, which by they way you will not receive at this institution. In regards to the nursing program, you will feel threatened all the time, they just make it very difficult with soooooo many homeworks and stuff to do at home, that you don't even have time to study, so basically you just go from task to task without learning what you actually need to learn. And if you drop half way, they will charge you for the whole semester It is all a big disappointment, shame on them.
Keiser University offers more than just high-quality education. Be a Keiser University Student means be part of a family. This college experience is so complete we have a so efficient and friendly team of resident life, a so active pastoral life, the best food in San Marcos, sports, and the best is the chapel. Also, each semester we have a bunch of activities including some many clubs and the households. I am glad to be part of this amazing family. Thank KU for this fantastic experience.
Keiser University is a great college to study at. The professors are absolutely wonderful. They are very knowledgeable and understanding. They go out of their way for the students to succeed. Diagnostic Medical Sonography is not a program for someone who just wants to go to school and then forget about school when they get home. You have to study, and practice every single day or else you will never be able to pass. Its your money and your time, I wouldn't waste it.
Thank you KU for the amazing gift of being part of this great family! Thank you pastoral life for teaching me to grow and how to overcome the hard circumstances of life!! Thank you Residence Life for teaching me discipline and responsibility!! Love you all
