Keiser University eCampus Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (68)
I have been contemplating on either attending the traditional route-University of Central Florida or virual campus-Keiser University...could somebody who have been there: took courses from the institution, whether it is worth the incurred debt, has a good communication-support base-tell me what to expect from this scenario? This would be a first, when it comes to the online or virual campus aspect of futhering my education.
By the way, I understand that the graduate program is no joke or something to take "lightly"; for I would like to be able to apply the taught information to my daily activities-hopefully something promising could come out of this choice of school/degree.
I will be graduating in a few months with a bachelors degree in business admin. with a concentration in finance. Keiser isn't the cheapest but as a working adult juggling family life and school this fits my schedulte.
Prior to this I went to a traditional university and to be honest online courses are much harder. My professors have all been professional and highly credited individuals ranging from CFO's, CPA's, judges, and respectable professors at other colleges. We are given challenging time consuming work with timed exams/tests.
I think it's absurd how people are trying to discredit this school, maybe they couldn't handle their school work. This is an accredited school that offers degrees on many levels. If anyone thinks that any one can go through this school as long as they pay...wrong! You have to keep up with the work especially towards the end of your chosen program. The school work is challenging but that is what you are paying for..an education.
Don't expect to pay cheap tuition and get a degree without hardwork!! Stop bad mouthing the school because the dean and advisors are all helpfull. The only one I can complain about is a financial aid officer named Charlene Griffin. She doesn't do a good job and lacks communication. She is the only aspect that I would complain about the school other than that...Keiser gets a B- (it would be a B+ if it wasn't for Charlene G).
I have asked Keiser University for information on the program I am interested in. I cannot understand why they wouldn't send me the info requested when they have my email and home add. Instead, they annoy me with calls. And this crazy school add is linked with another add from another school which I didn't even contact but appeared right away on my screen. Now both schools (keiser and virginia ) calls my home phone like crazy! at least 3 times a day even on sunday!
To those who are searching for schools, never give out your number. And I always believe that a school that aggressively chases your pocket is not a good school (or else it will be you chasing them).
I attended Keiser back in 2004. Initially going in 2003 to check out my options, I let the councelor know I was not ready because of money and living situations. He persued me and finally I gave in. I was told that the pell grant I got and the loan covered my Tuition. I was told a computer was part of the tuition and given a estimated tuiton and expenses paper and the computer was not on there.
I only attended three classes and unfortunately I had to quit. I was not educated on this subject and when I finally was in a better position found Keiser was trying to charge me $2500 for this computer. I dont even know if I received this computer as it was a very crazy time for me, but I do know that the proof they gave me was a letter I supposibly signed at the end of the last class, stating I would return the computer if I didnt graduate. Why wasnt this signed during enrollment, on the Tuition estimate and why was this computer $2500. How is it that I am signing a loan paper, basically with Keiser? Then in 2005 I get a letter stating I could pay Keiser $700 and be clear of debt.
I am sorry if you dont understand me but I feel they put me in a worse situation than I already was. Maybe they should of said come back when your more settled.
I am quite amazed at a few of these reviews posted. Keiser University employs professionals such as Attorneys, Judges, and FBI Agents which I have had as Professors. My Professors have all had experiences within the Legal / Criminal Justice Department. When I had struggled in past classes, my professors were eager to help me even providing a home phone number to their residence to help me succeed.
Keiser is expensive, but you are paying for a private education by well qualified professionals with law firms and court rooms. I've been with Keiser for almost six years. I am amazed at the reviews. Keiser is not a bad school at all. Keiser is accredited even Stetson University of Law accepts their degrees!!!
Any time I have an issue with my classes, the Deans have been very quick to help me in any way for my future success. I am just shocked to read some of these reviews!!! Keiser is very professional school. I've ran into a few bumbs in the road such as not getting books in on time as an e-student, and I will have you know they have shipped it to me overnight for free. They really take care of their students.
I am so shocked to read about a few of the listings as "rip off" and "expensive". Keiser is not a "rip off", and they have many well qualified professionals to really assist you in class. "Expensive"? Keiser is a private school, and you're paying for the opportunity to work on your time. I have grown as a person and professional. Life has a bumbs in it's road, and you will hit a few of them in your lifetime. It's how you handle the situation as it reflects on your character.
I am just so shocked to read these reviews. I hope this does not discourage future students, and I am thankful you have taken the opportunity to seek reviews. I hope this review helps you within your academic choices. Just so you know Keiser is recognized under the Department of Education, and it's one of the few online school accredited!! When you choose an online school, you want to seek their type of accredation as it's the same as your local university. Good Luck to all.
The problem is that you guys got into the wrong career. I got my AS in Occupational Therapy and every week i get a new job offer and i graduated like 2 years ago. Now im going back to get my AS in Physical Therapy. That means i will be able to treat the patiens and get pay twice. For OT and PT services
I first attended Keiser to receive my AS in Medical Assisting. Once I had finished, I was offered to receive my Bachelor Degree for another 14 months. I had completed all my classes and was waiting my Bachelor's I received a call from a dean I was mislead and I still have another 13 months of school.
My thoughts, OK just hurry up and get it done. I was even advised I should have kept better track of the credits. I thought I did I was told a specific number of credits and a specific number of classes. I finished them. Now I am having problems with finacial aide and I just want my to quit and get my original AS in MA that I earned and I am having problems. Conviented...yes, but at what cost.
Has anyone ever received a stipend check from Keiser?
I am currently attending Keiser. I have found few people to be helpful. While they do have a few great people, most are totally uncaring and no help at all. It is untrue that those who complain are not college material. I have a 4.0 GPA. Obviously, you did not do well in English Lit. You cannot even string two sentences together to make a thought. You must work for Keiser in the Financial aid department. They cannot add OR subtract properly.
The bookstore cannot fill book orders because they tell you that "they had more students than anticipated so have run out of books". Give me a break! I would NOT recommend Keiser. I will graduate with my AS from them because I have no choice. Their credits do not transfer. Do yourself a favor and go to a community college for your AS.
It will cost me over 30K just for my Associate's. Be smart, do not make the mistake I did!
I graduated from Keiser, I completed an AS and finished my BS on line. I would recommend Keiser to anyone, they are professionals and always happy to help. You read many negative complaints about the institution, but those complaining probably were not college material anyway, or do not have the means to pay for a college education.
People often do not see the rewards any college education would offer. they have dreams of attaining a college degree, but are not willing to work hard for it, and when dissapointed, bashing the insstitution seem to be the best way to address their problem. I guess that makes them feel better about themselves. People move on, College is not for everyone, it takes commitment, and perseverance.
As far as their accreditation, I am starting my MBA with FIU on December, everything transferred. The only reason I am going to FIU; is due to a Veteran's scholarship I was offered to help pay for the MBA.
