Keiser University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (184)
I'm a graduate from keiser when it was known as keiser college. I graduated from their nursing program. Its a private university and so it will cost you but i can promise you this if you're persistent and willing to further your education you will graduate with a degree in hand. The classes are small and so teachers takes the time to pay attention to each individual weaknesses in a subject or strengths and help the students that needs help along the way.
I started out going to a well rebound community college and they were prejudice i had panic attacks thinking about facing my clinical instructor who made my clinical very nerve wrecking. I'm a nurse today because of keiser university and yes the fort lauderdale campus. Each teacher i met there were mentors and great teachers. I owe student loans but i have a great career one that's marketable and one that the sky is the limit once you get that degree you hold your head up high because you have achieved your dreams and goals. Choose keiser people its quick and painless.
Got an associates degree in Video Game Design, which I still haven't received and I graduated in April 2011, been well over a year, I've called and met staff/directors/supervisors, basically everyone that works there, and I keep getting bullshit excuses. The technology my class and I were taught on was a joke, daily computer crashes, 4 year old software, and even older computers made doing any animation or modeling so tedious and nerve wrecking that you would want to put your fist through the computer screen. I suggest find somewhere else to go to school this place wants your money and nothing more, sad truth but that's how it is.
P.S. because I don't have my degree in hand or at least a copy of it I've been turned down for 2 really great jobs, I have the skill and know how, just not the stupid piece of paper from the poor excuse of a university.
P.S.S. only good thing I can say about my time at Keiser was my professors knew how to teach. Still though much better places out there do your research.
I attended Keiser after a LONG waiting period at a local community college. I thought the monthly classes were great. I was able to stay focused and concentrate on one class at a time. My instructors were the best! They took time to help you if you needed something and were always available. Student services was awesome too. They helped me build my resume to make it more appealing to future employers.
The only bad thing I can say about Keiser is that the financial aid department was very unorganized. Not only is Keiser expensive, they hire just about anyone who can add in the financial aid department. I was a student at Keiser for 3 years altogether and my FA adviser changed 4 times! I had to bring back all my information and re-sign everything because the previous adviser "misplaced" it.
I'm definitely considering Keiser when I'm ready to obtain my Bachelors.
Im taking classes online for the medical assisting program. it is ok for me because i am an independent learner but i recommend that you go on campus if you are not an online learner. the price is ridiculous but i hope its worth it after i graduate.
If you are considering earning your A.S. degree in Medical Assisting, Please check out your community college. Keiser's tuition is ridiculously high. I chose to attend online classes with Keiser so that I could care for an ill family member.
I found the classes challenging and graduated with a 3.8 GPA however, if I had to do it all over again, I would have "done my homework" Taking all of the classes online was a mistake. Keiser does not have the best reputation in the medical community and when you disclose that you have done most all classes online with the exception of Preceptorship and Externship, employers shy away from e-learning.
I think that if you have a business degree or something to that nature it is viewed very differently. However, when it comes to the medical field, you are much better served in a classroom setting. I now owe a ton of money and still have not found a job. Do yourself a favor and attend your local community college. If you are in Florida, doing so will automatically allow you to attend the state university of your choosing. GO GATORS!
I am attending my first semester o and as far as I can tell, everyone in the group is disappointed. This semester we are taking two classes-Pharmacology and Nursing Fundamentals.
Pharm is hard, but the teacher is top-notch. She knows how to teach and everyone likes her. Even though it's a lot of material, she makes it achievable. Fundamentals, on the other hand, is a complete disaster. The two teachers don't know anything about teaching. They don't emphasis what's important, the tests are impossible to pass. Each chapter is long, and you are expected to be able to know every tiny detail. I am convinced that the teachers would not be able to pass this class if the shoe was on the other foot.The main problem is that the program is very condensed. Without good teaching and adjustments to the program it almost impossible to do well. Do yourself a favor, find a longer program. There must be many cheaper programs out there.
Has anyone complete the DMS Associate degress program, located in Fort Lauderdale? lease give me some feed bck on that campus. please disregard comments on my review,there was no way to by pass allth questions to get mypost up. Thank you
I called to get some information about Keiser University because I had a feeling that they were just like the other rip off schools I contacted and researched. The advisor I spoke with must have thought that I was boo boo the fool.
I asked about financial aid and he said that I can only speak with a financial aid advisor if I'm a current student and I know for a fact that he was lying and the school was a rip off. I went to Valdosta State University and you can speak with anyone from any department at anytime.
I asked him how much the application fee is and he told me $200 like I was a dang fool and didn't know any better than to pay that kind of money for an application fee when other schools ask for much much less. ($35) He kept trying to tell me that they were just like any other school, but I let him know exactly what their process was and he responded "oh you have done some research."
If you are interested in going to this school become uninterested really fast because they are going to rip you off in the biggest way possible. Please research before making a huge mistake. Happy school hunting!
Both of these campuses are not professional. They don't care about the students, they just want the money. When you get in your Cor classes the Professors don't care to help you, they just give you work to do and expect you to teach it on your own at home.
They should clean the schools up, and update it and make it look like a university,and the desk are horrible for the students. The reputation in this school is not good at all. I don't recommend this school to no one.
I would not push this school on anyone. Ive watched teachers pass students adjust grades to help them along. Teachers sitting in the rt lab on there phones texting. there are a few good teachers that were GREAT!!! Unfort, they don't teach the entire program...west palm beach campus is dis-organized and they dont care... They honeslty dont seem to care.
There gen eds are different from campus to campus.. go figure................ good luck if you go.
