Keiser University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (184)
I've read Keiser reviews on a variety of sites & I've come to the conclusion that bad reviews outweigh the number of good reviews bcz unhappy people take further measures to express their self proclaimed injustices. I've been a student at Bethune-Cookman University, Florida State College at Jacksonville and now Keiser University. As a BCU Student I averaged "B-C" until my grades eventually dwindled to "D's & F's". As a FSCJ student I finished my first semester off with all "F's". Initially I blamed the professors, I used stress and work and my 1 year old as an excuse for my failures. It was when I was laid off from my job when I realized, as long as I keep working, all I'll have is a job. I saw a Keiser commercial and I called. An admissions counselor scheduled me to come in, I took a timed test. I didn't score high enough for the degree I sought. I came back the next day and took the text again and achieved the score If I remember correctly, the minimum score for paralegals is 17. I started class that following week. One class per 4 wks on Monday, Tuesday & Thursday from 9-1. Come on now! Most ppl start their day by noon. By the time the world is having lunch, you'll be done with class! I haven't made anything less than an "A" since I've been enrolled.I'm currently taking my 5th class, family law. & yes it's true, YOU HAVE TO STUDY! So study! Anyone that has been to a college that requires you take a minimum of 12 credits to be considered fulltime will appreciate one class at a time for 4 wks! Ugh at Cookman the semester was 4 long months. For each class I have the mind set of "let's get this over with" I study, I do and that's the difference between then and now. Before,I thought anything more than the bare minimum was too much. Psssh!! KEISER IS A GREAT SCHOOL. KEISER GROOMS THEIR WELL EDUCATED GRADUATES FOR CAREERS IN TODAYS COMPETITIVE CAREER POOLS. IF YOU WANT A FLY BY NIGHT DEGREE GO ON ELSEWHERE OTHERWISE GET TO THE KEISER LOCATION NEAR. CHOOSE A DEGREE PROGRAM THAT YOU LOVE! & you'll never see studying the same. Everytime I open my law book, I'm excited about what I can learn next. Good luck:))!
Do not go to this school. As soon as you arrive. Must take a test and reach a certain number. All programs are different numbers. All classes are a month long. I needed two classes. Omg was it hard. You have to learn five chapters in a week. Then your professor makes you learn all five chapters..picks out 50 questions for test. Which are so in depth. Barley any hands on work. Your grade in class comes from 90% of tests. Lectures the whole 4 hours. Then if you reach a grade of "c" you have to see how your other grades are. Must keep a 3.0 or take other classes over. If you decide to take it over. Your program gets moved back if your close to program. Program is the same. One class at time. When you graduate. They do not get you a job. They show you how to look for hiring jobs.
Please re consider the nursing program at Keiser!!!! I attended this school and I regret every bit of it. When I was enrolled in the nursing program, about 4 teachers quit and also the dean of nursing!!! It was sooo diffi ult with all tbe sork they give, its impossible to retain any information! The professors gossip about students to other students, they lack teachjng skills. I can honestly say professor berrick was the only knowledgeable one there. They push certain people through. Especially the ass kissers. I ended up leaving and im now attending miami-dade. Please think twice!! Be weary of a school that has 3 start dates cor the nursing program! I am so happy that I left the school. attending Miami Dade made me realize how horrible Kaiser is.the equipment is outdated financial aid doesn't know anything and it's overpriced. Please think twice! (Sorry for the grammical and spelling errors...)
I recently graduated with my Bachelor degree from Keiser in Tampa. The staff was great and very helpful. They found me scholarships I didn't know about and they were there when I had problems that needed addressing. I work full time and attend school full time. The campus is open late and advisors are always available when needed. I enjoyed my experience so much I have now returned to get my masters degree. The new campus is beautiful. I would highly recommend this school.
I am blown away by some of the reviews on here. I have been going to Keiser University for over 2 years and I have had a great experience. The small class sizes, only having to take one class at a time, individualized attention,knowledgeable teachers, etc... are just some of the great features of this school. I have made many lifelong friends, including some of the professors. This school has given me the gift of knowledge, confidence, independence, the ability to go above and beyond what is expected of me, etc... Anyone who is giving a negative review apparently is not cut out for the regimen of Keiser. Classes are taken much faster than other schools. You can't just ride this degree. You have to study, work hard, and be committed. I am double majored in both business and in legal studies, with the hope of going to law school to become a lawyer. I work very hard to maintain my nearly perfect GPA. A Keiser student is expected to study hard and to do everything in his or her power to EARN the degree that person chose. Nobody else is going to do it for you. These people blaming the school for their inadequacies are not Keiser material, but people who are expecting to be rewarded for work they obviously cannot do. I urge anyone to not hesitate to go here. Yes, it is expensive. But it is well worth it, if you can honestly commit yourself to it. So anyone who is hesitant about this school, don't be. It is a great school with the same accreditation of USF, PCC, and all of the other big colleges here in Florida. I also have several friends here that are in the nursing program. It is top notch and yes, they have to work hard to maintain their grades as well. Many of them already have good jobs because of Keiser. I urge anyone thinking about going to Keiser to give our campus a look, maybe speak with some of the other students or professors.
I am a fast learner. I did well in classes that I had some prior knowledge in. When we moved into subjects that were new to me the pace was much too quick for anyone to have a proper understanding. Nobody can go from zero to CCNA in 30 days. Nobody. Sure, a test may be passed, but it doesn't reflect an understanding of the material. That is Keiser's main flaw.
I would definitely choose the same degree. I love what I do, and while I wish I had gone to a cheaper school, I do not regret spending the time to learn what I did.
The biggest thing that I wish schools would be more up front about is price. I had to sit and wait and then have a long conversation with an advisor before I found out how much each school would cost. Shopping around should be easier, but since it is not, it is well worth the effort to dig as deep as possible to find out what debts will be incurred. I spent ~$30k at Keiser when I could have spent less than half that at a different school with a better program that is more integrated with the local market.
Keiser online was a perfect fit for me being pregnant and needing to finish my degree soon. Being pregnant and horrible morning sickness I couldn't go to a on campus college. Plus 4 weeks of school rather than 8-10 is awesome!
No I would not chose the same degree only because now they offer the interdisciplinary studies (2 bachleors for the price of one!) I'm currently enrolled back into Keiser University and enjoying every step of it.
Take it seriously don't slack off and if you need help don't be afraid to call your teachers. Your education is the only thing that will get you by in life. DON'T WASTE IT!
All the negative reviews are right if there is anyone telling you they are great is because they probably only did prerequisites or they just plain work for the school. Nursing program is a joke unprepared instructors load of work makes no sense and classes are practically impossible yo pass
I was starting the Medical Assisting program. It required sitting in class from 8 to 1 every day then additional lab work etc after class. There was about 5 hours of studying and homework every night for 2 courses. They just couldn't assign enough work every day. Tests constantly so you had to prepare very night even if you had other life obligations like a job. It was ridiculous!!!! It is very expensive, I would recommend Daytona State College instead. Their program is 3500 tuition and Keiser is 16,000 plus books and uniforms you have to buy from them only. Teacher was rude singled me out because I had my arms crossed one day, she couldn't wait for breaks to run out and smoke!! She was under qualified for the job period, appeared to have no class or culture for a private school with a high tuition rate. Please choose another school, staff was unfriendly, snobby, just really strange at the school in Daytona. They are pushy in admissions and even after I withdrew from the school they still tried to call me to get me to return after I explained when I left I was no longer interested. It cost me 1500.00 to attend one week basically. Please don't allow your child to attend here.
The Radiology program at Keiser University is not very helpful to the students at all. They are all about money and thats it. First of all as a student you pay a lot of money to the school and when you are first applying they are all so nice to you and very helpful with everything. Once you are in your core classes they are no help at all. The teachers come in and teach and give you your work and thats it. If a teacher see that you are just passing they dont even come to you and try to help you out with any make up work or anything, even if you go to them all they will offer you is tutoring and if you do that all they do is ask you what it is that you dont understand and go over it again like they did in class time. if you are african american good luck with that cuz most of the people there are caucasian and they cater to their race. the teachers have their favorite students who they look out for and help if you are not one of them, then you have no luck at passing if you are not doing good. this also goes for the people who are high up like deans and the president and so on. I am not happy with this school at all and i am going to do everything that i can to put them in their place even if i have to sue them. because they are not here for the students at all the just want your money. They will fail you in a core class for a grade of 67-69.5 which is a D. With a grade this close to passing and you have a student who have never missed a day of class for no reason. only for a major emergency you mean to tell me that the teachers can not wok with you and give you some thing to bring your grade up to a 70 C. so please think about going here in detail before you spend your money on this school.
