Keiser University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (191)
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.
Lets start off by saying I had no confidence once so ever about myself going to school until I started Keiser. I went to BCC and FIU and barely made it by the skin on my teeth. I have two kids and trying to find a schedule that worked with them was hard until I went to this school.
Everyone seems nice at first until you ask for help. I was ONE class away until being placed in my OTA program I became extremely ill to the point that I was hospitalized for two weeks! While I was in my hospital bed I called my school everyday and left my professor emails to let them know what was going on. When I returned to school with doctors notes and actual documation I was told I was dropped from my program! And that I would have to retake my math class and pay for it out of pocket! I came into the deans office in tears showing them that I had been extremely sick and that I tried everything to get in track! I even went as far to bring in my phone records.
They completely dismissed me, even my professor spoke up on my behalf and they still acted as if I didn't do enough to please them. After that I lost all faith in that school.. And well going back to school in general. Almost 12,000 dollars down the drain. My advice is to cross this school or should I say "business" off your list. ,/p>
I currently attend Keiser for the nursing degree. I am in some B.S. degree program until I pass my teas exam. This program is called the Bachelor of science in interdisciplinary studies. Can anyone explain WTH that means and where you can use such a degree at?
First let's start with admissions. I was told to bring an unofficial copy of my transcripts in instead of the real one which makes sense. No time after did they ask for it until money was paid and I was in the class with no refund. Then admissions failed to tell me that they make you take a pre-math class you really don't need unless you test out of it. So instead of 8 classes you need 10 yes pre-english class too.
Then financial aide oh the idiots nobody can break down the money by class like they do at other schools. No one knows nothing at this school but how to take your money and how to hide the truth from you. Now I am stuck in this school until I graduate and trust by then I will owe an arm and a leg. I pay for my own books because if I didn't I would owe them. I regret not taking more time out before giving them my $200 bucks and signing on to a class.
Well i attended Keiser back in Oct of 2010 I thought it was great, small classes once a month. Student services sucked Financial aid ladies none of them knew what they were doing all they seemed too know what shade of pink they decorated there desks with completely incompetent people. The dean looks like shes 22 and also acts like a child you get no where with here. She's also incapable of giving direct answers the books where ridiculously expensive couldn't find on amazon and the classes well wow super super expensive but i got all 2's in the 4 months i was there.
I had to stop going for a month because of a trip i was taking and never stated i was dropping my clinical classes where scheduled for may 2011 when i came back from my trip I found that i had been withdrawn from the program without any notice at all. So when i came back from my trip trying to resolve the issue they had moved the waiting time all the way back to may 2013 this happened in 2011. I was so upset i stop going to school and so after a year i went back to my community college Miami dade.
I'm really interested in getting back to the occupational therapy program but its the only accredited OTA program remotely close to my home. A previous comment makes a lot of sense though they are graduating so many ota's that by the time i graduate I might have a hard time trying to find employment. So im not really sure what to do but i hope this helps someone.
