Keiser University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (184)
The classes are very fast paced, you have to read sometimes 5 chapters in a week for a class. Luckily, you only take one class at a time, so you can focus on your class for a month. If you are not doing homework every single day, you will have a problem. Most teachers are willing to work with you if you have something that prevents you from doing your homework, but you must have a good excuse. The teachers are willing to look out for you if you do the work and participate. While I loved many of my teachers, there were others that just shouldn't be a teacher anymore. They are clearly burnt out and are not enthused about their subject anymore. Some of my professors acted like they didn't know their topic, and one or two didn't know how to use a camera/microphone! I had to email professors of problems with the material several times over the course of my degree. I had to correct several tests by emailing the professor, and letting them know that the book answer was different than the test. Luckily, they were always willing to fix the grade, and let Keiser know that the tests were wrong. The teachers don't make the tests, which are apparently standard for each class. The worst experience I had was a professor that told us in week 1 that he wasn't our teacher, and we didn't have a "teacher" until week 3 when he was told he WAS our teacher, and needed to teach something. He didn't actually teach the class at all! He canceled every single live chat the entire time I had him. I had this stupid teacher twice, and learned NOTHING from him. The IT classes: The Microsoft Labs are HORRIBLE. They often don't work properly. You also have to use IE not Edge/Chrome/Firefox in order to do them right, and a lot of stuff STILL doesn't work properly. A lot of times, it seemed like we were going over the same class with a different book/teacher. Of course, considering sometimes it was hard to learn the topic in the first class, it was kind of nice to have a repeat however, you had to pay for the same class twice. This school is mainly teaching yourself. If you can't teach yourself, or learn from a book, you might have a problem. Many of the teachers don't really do the live chats like you probably need. Many of them do try very hard to be helpful and make sure their students learn something. However, like any college, some just don't care. Overall, my experience was positive. However, there are times where I feel like I spent two years learning nothing that can help me further my career in the computer field.
At Keiser you will not be given correct information about the cost of the school. For reference to anyone who questions the cost seeing multiple people on here saying "yes it is expensive but..." let me clarify. 7 months at Keiser cost me over 18,000$ The classes are a month long, if the class moves slow and you do not complete all of the chapter requirements, it doesn't matter. You will simply receive credits for that class, and continue, graduating without proper education or the knowledge necessary for your degree. How great is that?! A minimum of 48,000$ for an associates degree and you don't have an associates level knowledge. I cannot and will not stress enough to anyone considering this route for your education, do not do it. A community college is better equipped, cheaper, and will tell you their cost upfront. This school is awful. I would not wish the financial strain they put on their students to anyone. It is simply not worth it. To pay this much for an education, but you should be getting a quality education for this price, and you're not.
Do not go to Keiser Orlando for nursing unless you want to spend more money than any person should have to for the privilege of teaching yourself. The instructors spend too much time talking about personal experiences and not teaching the subject material. If they cannot answer your question they will tell you to look in the book and find out for yourself. When you find that they give information contrary to accepted practice they will tell you to just accept what they say, even if the information is contrary to ATI which they treat as the God of nursing. Grading is done by some instructors based on making themselves look better like taking tests then getting into groups to correct the test using books and internet then turning them in for grades while in class.
This school is amazing. Beyond the wonderful features they offer as a student, the staff was always helpful and encouraging, even when I would get frustrated the professors assisted with patience and thorough explanations. I managed to get a 4.0 gpa thanks to the feedback from the professors when grading. They have so many people and resources to assist you, it would be difficult to fail.
Keiser University is a great school. It is accredited however it is very expensive but well worth it. My teacher is amazing as she is very understanding. The class and program in general is like a family to me as everyone gets along when working together. I will be furthering my education all the way to a doctorate degree. I love this school very much and think everyone else will as well.
This school does not care about its students only wants money. BEWARE OF THIS SCHOOL!!!!!!!!!!! The teachers are horrible, the school does not round grades. I received an 89.9 and was told by the DEAN that it wasn't good enough to round to an A. They are only looking to gain more money in their pockets. WORTHLESS SCHOOL!
I took my math classes with Mr.K and he is the best teacher I've ever had , I had no idea I was this good at math until I met him. Keiser is amazing and everyone helps you with whatever you need. Monica my counselor is also amazing she's kept in touch all this time and I gladly appreciate that. Elliot, my financial aid advisor is been great too, I am so happy and satisfied with everything.
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!
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.
