I attended Keiser College in 2005-2006 my last class was 10/2006, my sister died and I got into a terrible car accident so I was out of class for a while and when I was thinking of going back they told me that they raised tuition. So, I decided to go to finish my AA elsewhere that was much more inexpensive. I am trying to get back into school at a University to get my BA and was told by the transcripts office that I was unable to get my transcripts because I apparently owe them 8585.35!! Now how could this be?! I had financial aid, two student loans that I am currently paying on fro just the year that I attended Keiser! So why did I owe them so much?! I went and talked with them personally where I was told that I owed this amount because I was enrolled in 2007, so that amount was my tuition that was never paid, and that I could get my transcipts once a check had been made out to Keiser to pay the amount! I was RED! How in the world could I be being billed such an amount when I quit going in 2006?! Well, they rolled me right on into the new semester without my knowledge! I never even recieved a bill for the amount, let alone a call saying I owed them money.. Now I am trying to work out a payment arrangement or a debt settlement agreement with them and they are being nearly impossible to deal with, on a debt that I truly do NOT even OWE!!! I feel like Keiser University is a complete rip off and a scam of a school who will extort their previous students for however much money they can! They gave me a ledger that was supposed to show me line by line what the fees were, and its kind of comical to me when I am getting a charge for tuition, then several charges for "educational fees" now I am pretty sure that tuition should cover said "educational fees". It should be illegal for these schools to be allowed to do what they do to unforseeing victims who are just trying to better their lives!

They are doing the same to me. I do not understand we owe no student loans and they took it apron there self to charge 7000 dollars I only did one class and they charged for the whole semester I am very upset. Can't get into a community college till they have the official transcript somebody has to put a stop to this scam it's not right there needs to be a lawsuit immediately .it's unfair and a scam.

Go somewhere more affordable

I am posting this for anyone who is considering attending Keiser University's online program in the hopes that they will consider other universities so they won't end up in the situation I am in currently. I just completed my business degree program with Keiser and come to find out that they will not release my transcripts nor my degree until I pay them a $2k balance which my student loans / financial aid did not cover while I was in school. This would be okay, if this had been communicated to me when I was solicited by their aggressive telemarketers to attend Keiser back in early 2011. What these telemarketers tell you is that you are required to pay $50 per month while you are attending school and that student loans and financial aid will cover the rest of your tuition. Now I'm in a position where I owe $60k in student loans which I'm going to have to start paying on in 6 months, but cannot pursue a decent paying job because they will not release my degree or transcripts. The other thing I would like to mention is that nobody from the school will get back with you if you have a concern. This has happened to me frequently over the last 3.5 years. I emailed the dean on this matter and she just ignores it and will not even reply. If you are considering attending Keiser, looking back, I would suggest you look into other schools that are more affordable. For the most part, the instructors are decent, but now that I'm finished there, I feel like I paid for a Cadillac and received a Chevy Cobalt.

Do not sign up for diagnostic medical sonography! First off yes its a great career but thats if you actually get a job. The market is way oversaturated but they of course wont tell you that when you sign up. I am registered and have been out of school 6 months and havent even gotten an interview. Oh and the financial aid dept is the worst I mean worst non functioning dept ever. They wont even give my dipolma because I have a balance because they " forgot to send my pell grant" and then had the unprofessional nerve to say "its our bad". Btw they still havent sorted out the situation Im a VA student way to serve the veterans!

Reading these reviews is mind blowing to me. I have attended Keiser University Daytona and online and I have not had any of these issues. My financial aid was fast and easy, my admissions was fast and I always get a fast response whenever I contact anyone. I failed a class once and was able to retake it free and I also was able to take a medical leave without accruing any additional costs. However, I will say that Keiser does not babysit. They expect you to manage yourself and course work accordingly to your life. They will not chase you down to attend or turn in work but I think that is all colleges across the board. They also work with you on your monthly payments. They let me attend 9 months of classes without my monthly payment and then allowed me to catch them up. I have never had any issues like I have read on here and I do not know any of my classmates who have either. I think the success you have at Keiser depends on your dedication and your willingness to stay on top of your own academic success. It is a fast paced curriculum and if you are not 110% dedicated, it won't end well. As far as the cost.... they were extremely upfront and honest about everything. Even giving me a sheet of paper with a complete break down of costs and total cost per semester. I am completely satisfied with Keiser, would recommend it and I already have an internship at my counties Probation Office that I start in May while I continue my education at Keiser for my BA. I have no issues with Keiser. It has been a great experience the last year and a half.

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 am currently attending keiser now and love it. Sorry if I don't have proper grammar on here I am not on a computer typing this. Anyways online degrees are weighed the same as going on campus. An employer can't tech ask if you went online. I'm this from experience with my other online degree.

Definitely that could be a comment that could make me take a decision on going or not , Truth is that I realize that a master degree is better to do it while you are in the field then the master degree may help to go further , but still I don't want to pay for a paper that doesn't worth anything out there.
