I received an AS degree in Sports Medicine and Fitness Technology in Nov 2013. I still can't find work after applying for 20+ jobs in my related field. I could have saved $36,000 and got a certified personal training certificate, because that is all this degree allows you to get! I am forced to continue my education and get a BS in order to find a descent job. The school should also give you along with this degree a certificate for personal training. I did not want to be a trainer.

Keiser was an excellent choice for me! Yes it was expensive but what school isn't? A community college where you have to wait years to get into the program? Good luck with that! I loved my teachers and my class was small so everyone that I graduated with we are still in contact. The school was clean, the curriculum was easy to follow. I passed my registry the day after graduation!

I see there are a lot of negative reviews! First off, I'd like to mention that Keiser isn't for everyone! You have to have the right mindset with the ability to go at a fast pace. I'm currently in my second month and I have no complaints. The students and instructors are all very personable. Yes, the tuition is high. If it wasn't that high the quality of instructors would be terrible. I'm fine with paying a high price if it means getting a quality education. Some of the books are pricy, but many can be purchased used. I love Keiser!

I absolutely agree that this school is a total rip of. It is so unfortunate that while they are there to help you advance in new endeavors and provide council towards effective student planning, they are only interested in expanding their own pockets. As students you are expected to read the fine print and understand you academic and financial responsibilities and this could not be more true. For all future college students looking to educate themselves and gain experiences, this has been a real eye opening life lesson for me. This is a business like any other, one who sells and profits. They are dishonest and it is in your best favor to very closely monitor your rights and obligations.Understand the rules on the paper NOT WHAT KEISER VERBALLY ADVISES. Not understanding this 100 percent can cost you thousands or more importantly your education. I learned the hard way paying money not truly owed. It will get resolved because once you have decided to commit to your goals, one should never quit. Just know that this school will tell you what you want to hear and will hide what they think you don't know. DO NOT BELIEVE that anyone is there to truly advise you. You must get that support somewhere else. Know exactly what you want and what you're entitled to when you speak to any faculty member. If you do not think they are being honest trust you gut and request time to review and understand it better. They will DELIBERATELY tell you misleading information. They will even tell you that you have to pay more money and or that it has to be paid immediately. DO NOT ATTEMPT to get ahead on your payments, give everything a chance to calibrate and catch up. Doing this can and will result in money being sent back to Financial Aid resulting in further debt out of your own pocket. There may be a few pleasant people there but they are still all about the bottom line, and will carry this out unlawfully.

Keiser is waaay better than expected.

There are a lot of bad reviews on here for Keiser, but I personally find it to be a great school. I have not had one problem with any of the staff. In fact they have been more helpful than I could ever imagine. They're always willing to work with you no matter what you have going on. I am currently in my 3rd month of the RT program and I'm loving it. The professors are extremely knowledgeable and understanding of home situations and 8/10 students find jobs after getting their licenses. Yes it is expensive, but well worth it in my opinion.

After graduating, I was called back for two second interviews, and both cancelled after telling me they don't hire people with online degrees. I feel like I have wasted my money and time. I was told the online online degrees worth anything are from major universities.

I have went to Valencia College to get most of my AS degree finished and then went on to Kieser Orlando campus to finish up the last 3 classes of that AS degree.The instructors will help you out and want you to succeed. My A&P 2 Professor Dr. Boer is the best professor I have had out of all of them. Then I swithched over to the Lakeland campus to start the PTA program because they dont offer it in Orlando. Once you get into the core classes you need to be ready to commite your time to the program. It is fast paced, and your first class they have a test called a one and done, you either pass or fail. no excuses. The information is not all that difficult to retain in the fast pace but you cannot fall under a C grade or get less than a 70% on any test. Thats what happened to me on one of my final tests and it was because I got distracted with work. Now I am waiting to get back in rotation for the next semester. There is no mysteries or people trying to mislead you. Your just not going to skate through though, it is the same classes you will take at non-private colleges but fast paced. I wish it was cheaper though, it is 3 times the price of regular college. Valencia college 5,000 for a 2 year AS, and then another 3,000 for your R.N. degree. Keiser will cost you 35,000 for the same degree. Up to you. I am already locked in to Keiser. Good Luck!

Thanks for this review! I contacted the law school I want to enroll in and asked them if they would accept an online degree and they were the ones that recommended Keiser. I looked into it and they have all the certifications and accreditation, but the one thing that is holding me back is justifying the $20k more of tuition, but when time is money, the costs of sitting in a car commuting in rush hour traffic there and back, the gas, the mileage, and the babysitters to watch the kids while at school, Keiser seems like the better choice.

Teacher plays favoritism

I graduated at Keiser with an AS in Radiology Technology. I passed my Rad Tech board and in addition I received my state certification. Before Keiser I already had my BS in Healthcare Management. I like the fact they provide one class at a time and it was not easy. I was studying everyday of the week and it was too tiring. Keiser drills you until you know the material. Keiser is not for everyone; and to be honest, I no longer want to pursue a job in this field. The one thing I have to complain about is one instructor. Mrs. K played favoritism and it showed; a few of us in class received a lower grade than a few of our classmates knowing the fact that we had higher test scores than the other! We brought it to her attention, but she just ignored it. Mrs. K is lucky she even has a teaching career, she needs to be fired from Keiser.

The staff are great and very helpful. The classes are smaller so you can have individual attention from the instructor which helps you succeed in the program study your in.

I loved that at Keiser you focus on one class at a time rather than several at once. Each teacher was incredibly knowledgeable on all aspectd of occupational therapy and was able to bring real world experiences to each class.
