Keiser University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (202)
This school is very very and I mean very unprofessional. When I finish school I tried to get my transcript so I could take my Medical Assistant exam they took me through the run around and much more. With that being said I had to call the Fort Lauderdale office on them to get my transcript. If you have to come to this school I would do my research and see what else is out there first. They will also tell you that your school is one amount then when you are almost done they will tell you that you own them more money. This school needs to be investigated.
My experience with Keiser was not the best when it came to the personnel in the front. I attended the Jacksonville, FL branch and things got so bad that I had to report three employees to the school president. I'm not sure if anything was done, but one of them for sure doesn't work there anymore. The business side of that branch is so unorganized and very unprofessional. Many of my classmates had complaints with most of them dealing with screwed up paperwork or disrespect.The professors in my core classes were my favorite. The classes were small and intimate, also you really got to learn a lot about your professors, which allowed me to be comfortable. Overall, the school and coursework was easy to get through, but if you are looking for a QUALITY EDUCATION go to a traditional college.
DONT COME TO THIS SCHOOL!!!! THE INSTRUTORS ARE GOOD BUT THE FRONT OFFICE WITH THE FINANCIAL AID IS SO UNPROFESSONIAL !! HERE I WAS A GOOD STUDENT MAKING GOOD GRADES AND THEY ALWAYS WOULD END MY CLASS !!! THEY ARE TOO QUICK TO PRESS THE BUTTON OR TELL YOU .YOU CANT CONTINUE THIS CLASS WITHOUT A PAYMENT. IM LIKE KEISER REALLY .. YALL JUST ALL ABOUT MONEY THIS AND MONEY THAT ! THATS WHY THEIR GRADUATION PERCENT RATE WENT FROM A 80 % TO A 50% GET REAL!!! FINANCIAL AID REALLY SUCKS BECAUSE THEY DONT SEE THAT YOUR TRYING TO MAKE PAYMENTS ..THEY DONT CARE AND ANOTHER THING THAT I HATE SO MUCH ABOUT THIS SCHOOL IS THEIR LACK OF RESPONDANCE!!! WHEN I CALL OR SEND AN EMAIL I DONT GET NO RESPONSE UNTIL AFTER I GOT KICK OUT OF MY CLASS!!! AND THE FRONT DESK ALWAYS SAY OH .THEY END WITH ANOTHER STUDENT BUT WHEN YOUR ON CAMPUS THEY DONT BE DOING ANYTHING BUT SITTING DOWN ON THEIR BEHINDS AN EMAIL EACH OTHER ABOUT LUNCH!!! NOT A GOOD LOOK KEISER ESPECIALLY FOR OUT OF STATES STUDENTS!! GO TO DAYTONA STATE OR SOME WHERE ELSE NOT HERE !!!
2008 I marched into Keiser University seeking a new direction for my life. Unfortunately, life as I knew it flipped upside down and inside out.That did not stop me from pursuing my destiny. The professors were genuinely interested in my success. Yes, there was one professor I did not in particularly care for, but by that time I was at home in the learning environment and everyone celebrated me every step of the way. It was a far cry from the hole I was in were folks tolerated my presence.I felt like I belonged. Having the opportunity to study and occupy my mind and force my intellectual capacity to stretch was therapeutic. Thank God for Keiser. Whatever you put in is what you will get out. The rush to get to class on time, making time to study on line, all of that mingled with the responsibility of being a proud parent, as well as, other community obligations. Today I feel accomplished, I owe no one BUT God. No one can take this away from me. This is MINE!!! I celebrate myself. Thank you Keiser University, despite the fact that someone that was very close to discouraged me by discrediting the accreditation of the university.I am a proud Alumni.
STAY AWAY!!! If your a VETERAN STAY FAR away, you are just a number nothing more or nothing less it's all about the MONEY at keiser university.... You have been warned
The Radiologic Technology Program at Keiser University is excellent! It is rigorous and and it allowed us to challenged in ways that nurtured critical thinking, problem solving, and technical competence. While the faculty was very nice and accessible to every student, they did not diminish the standards of the profession at any time. I always thought it was unfair of my fellow classmates to say they "earned" their As and Bs, but were "given their Cs and Ds. To the student who spoke about their radiography program... if you had wanted a C then you should have given another 2 tenths of a percentage points of effort to get your C. Which, by the way, is the minimum to continue in the program....not the goal! Also, there is another hint about the lameness of the student wrote about the RT program. That student did not even use the correct terminology for the profession...something that is learned in the first week of the first class of the program. The RT student studies to become a radiologic technologist NOT a radiologic technician.... Idiot! No wonder you failed!
I hesitate whether or not to recommend the school based on price alone. 10 yrs. later I think I have a better perspective on my education. There was no social element to the experience at all (which was fine with me as an older student going back to school for a second degree). The focus is on the education. The class-rm education; the instruction itself, was excellent. I was well prepared to pass the boards upon graduation. I'm not as gung-ho on the clinical experience...What I could do, in clinicals, was restricted to things that we had already gone over in class and while that may sound reasonable it kept me a little behind students from the other schools in the practical skills area. I cought up. I was employed right away and am still working full time in radiology at a hospital. My main negative is the cost...I am still paying off student loans 10yrs later. Other schools graduate tech's as qualified as I and for a fraction of the cost...If I had to do it over, I would have gone to a public school. It would have taken me a little longer and I may not have scored as high on the registry but it would have been a better choice financially.
Keiser is a good school. In order to succeed at this school you have to be focused and be ready for a fast paced learning environment. You have to study daily to make sure that you are retaining the information.At this school you are incharge of your own success. You have to have a positive mind set and remove all distractions. The OTA program will have you working and starting your career in no time. You have to be ready to take school seriously and make your education a top priority!
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.
