Keiser University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (184)
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!
It a rush to get you in but no rush to help you whenever you have questions that are unanswered make a visit sign some papers you can start school in less than two weeks they care 0 about student actually making it all they care about is money admission counselor Rena seals is a big fat liar !!!!!! Don't trust anything these people tell will elaborate more on what occurred once I am done with this semester & they can mess me up in any way not too sure if they view these reviews....
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!
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.
Keiser University's Lakeland campus PTA program; I sure wish id done a little more research before entering thier PTA program. The Lakeland campus has a pass/grad rate of less than 50% in this program. The two programs in session now are set to graduate and average of 13 students out of the 24 that started the program. Professor K. is horrible as an instructor which further makes this progam a bad choice for anyone... save you hard earned money and go somewhere else! I would not recommend this program to anyone! The University lost one professor the first month of this years class because he said he didnt agree with the way Keiser's PTA program was running, rather than trying to work with and graduate students the faculty is actively trying to reduce the class size through failing as many as possible. Dr. K. said, I decide who graduates, not you... I pick and choose the ones that will make it. Dr. K. was also recorded giving her students a motivational speach that constisted of her telling the class that most of them will not see graduation because no matter how hard they try, less than half will make it... she is sure proud of her high 40-50% pass rate! I am posting this hear in hopes of warning others... please do not go here, do your research and go SOMEWHERE ELSE! South University in Tampa seems to be a legit school whos pass rate is over 95%.
Do some research about complaints/good reviews before attending this school, I wish I did!! I attended for two semesters (winter 2013 and spring 2014). Because the tuition is so high (do your own comparison with other schools) I was forced to apply for multiple private loans before they would allow me to get into a payment plan directly with the school. This dramatically affected my credit score even though I told them I would be denied for all of them. I paid over $8,000 just for two semesters, not including my federal loans. I am now done my pre-nursing courses and was told the wait list would be over a year. In the mean time I have been looking at other schools to pursue my education sooner. I was told by Keiser that they would not send me my transcripts (official and non-official) because I was not pursuing my education there as I had promised to do. Since when did I sign something that promises I will only attend THEIR school?
