Keiser University eCampus Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (67)
Let me start by saying that I completed my bachelors at Keiser and went on to graduate from my first choice law school in my state. It is unfortunate that Keiser continues to be stigmatized as a result of false reports. First and foremost, Keiser is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) just like UF, FSU, UCF, USF, UM, and all other major Florida universities. So the statement that credits from Keiser will not transfer is a lie. Second, the comment "I would rather go to community college and work twice as hard." If you weren't working hard at Keiser, that's probably why you are no longer a student. Keiser's classes are one month. At a traditional school a class is four months. Thus, at Keiser, you are learning a month's worth of material each week. It is comparable to summer school courses wherein you are learning 15-16 weeks worth of material in 7. It is by no means easy and you have to be a committed, responsible student. Lastly, the financial aid process is very transparent. You are informed of the tuition (yes it is expensive) as well as federal and private financial aid options. News flash, if you do not fulfill your obligations by completing the semester, a college or university must return those federal funds to the government. Do you really think they are going to take a loss on your behalf? No. That is why you have to repay. Additionally, if you are enrolled and behind in your payments, yes, you will be blocked from class. No one is blocked just because. So do not place the blame on the school because you didn't handle your business and commit to your education.
Do not waste your time with this school. I ignored all the tale tell signs that something was off. They take no responsibility for their actions and will continue to mess things up and then blame it all on you. Financial Aid department is a joke. They will contentiously mess your things up, never tell you, and then block you out of your classes. No one helps you to know what is going on and they blame you for an "attendance issue". Which then can result in you being kicked out of the program all together. How you can be blamed for attendance when you're doing nothing but trying to regain access to your classes is beyond me. The first time it happened to me I talked to everyone I could and did everything they said to do until my access was regained. All of my friends and family told me that it was a hoax but I gave the school the benefit of the doubt and stayed enrolled. Whenever I regained access I had missed almost 3 weeks of work and my professor only gave me 2 days to do 3 weeks worth of work and in a medical class, that's excessive. Needless to say, I was exhausted but I got it all done and had an A in the class. Barely a week later I was kicked out of my class again! Once again, with no warning or notice. I immediately started calling people, once again with no help. I finally had my last straw whenever I got an email saying that my "attendance issue" was being reviewed to see if I should be kicked out of the program or not. Ridiculous! I immediately responded giving them a piece of my mind and telling them I was going to withdraw. They also are expecting me to pay all of my financial aid back for an education I didn't even receive. I wouldn't recommend this "university" to my worst enemy. Moral of the story is, trust your gut instinct and research a school before you enroll!
If you have any professional experience with computers, pick another school and save yourself the headaches. Having to inform the "professor" that they are providing incorrect information (despite its truth) is never well received. Scheduling problems due to clerical errors and no responsibility taken on the part of the faculty or administration despite the negative impact on my GPA.
If you go to this College good luck transferring your credits to a well established University. Not only will you be in debt but your credits will not transfer to FSU, UCF, USF or other established schools. They will only transfer to garbage private schools like Everest. Go to a community college instead. You will save money and plus most of them have agreements with the Universities to automatically accept you after you finish the community college.
Unfortunately, I had to drop out of this school it's beyond expensive and it's not worth the money. And I ended up paying over thousand dollars for dropping out. Let me start by saying keiser is nothing but trying to make money and keep the student in debt. It's just terrible to see all they care about is mone nothing else. Overall I had a very bad experience, and I will never ever go back to that school again. I'll rather work harder at a community college than ended up in debt for no reasons. Keiser sucks I hope whoever read my review learn something from it don't waste your money in this school. It's just terrible! And I hope one day this school will close forever.
Do not waste your money on a degree from this school. There are no Radiation Therapy jobs in the state of Florida. Radiologic tech jobs are usually only PRN or part-time. Kaiser is a rip-off. I have graduated with a degree that is useless. If you thought Corinthians College was bad, then Kaiser is worse
Easy going campus with flexible schedule for the student that holds a full time job
Having attended many colleges and universities on my educational journey, I can tell you this is a great college. I have attended public and private schools and once I started taking my education seriously, I learned which was the best for my learning style. I need a schedule that will allow me to work and attend to my family obligations. The online learning at Keiser is perfect. Time management is a big skill you will need. I love the way the masters program is set up. NO one can make your educational experience perfect but YOU. GOOD LUCK.. see you on blackboard~ :)
After going to this college for almost 2 years I ended up not being to graduate, because they miscalculated my classes and I had one more class to take and because it's one class they cannot provide financial aid. Its terrible we go to school to better ourselves to get a career and yet because of an error made by the school a student is left with student loans and no way to graduate because of a lack of financial aid. Thank you KEISER for NOTHING
As a graduate from Keiser University, I would say this experience has taught me a life long lesson of education can take you many places. With this being said, after reading a few of the comments already listed stating that the school is unprofessional and a waste of time, I would have to diversely disagree. If you are considering Keiser University, as with any other school, you must realize that you are your number one advocator. You are the only one who will determine if you are going to be successful or not. The choice is completely up to you. I have nothing but good things to say about the staff, teachers, financial aid staff, etc., that have helped me along the process of earning my diploma. The flexible class times are AMAZING! Being able to focus on just one subject at time seemed to help me concentrate more at the subject at hand rather it be math or biology. I have four children and raising them is my full time job. Yes, there were times I was up just before midnight turning in a paper or reading an assignment but like I said, you are your first advocate…the teachers are next. They want you to succeed and will go beyond their ways most of the time to help you if you are in need. Pay attention to your financial aid; keep all your documents in one place to refer back to them if needed. Keiser is a terrific school if you are considering it for online courses. The online classroom associates you with other classmates in the same course you are in that month; there are weekly live class chats that were extremely helpful for me, plus you work at your own pace! At the moment, I am considering returning for my Bachelors.
