Keiser University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (184)
Keiser was an ok school. It depends on the student. I graduated from the Orlando campus for medical assisting and received my associates. I now work for florida hospital as a medical assistant. If you keep up with your studies and payments the flow should be simple. Yes, the school is very expensive but remember the school offers degrees and it is a private institute;which means they have their own private loans and uniforms and books and so forth.
The dress is professional and business. Different from a normal tech school. Its also considered a university not a regular tech school. There is a lot of hands and powerpoints for the MA Program.I also took Histotechnology and it is so hands on. Your classroom is inside the lab with microscopes for each student and actual equipment you would use in the field The only negative about the school is that some students are really lazy and walk in and out the classroom but its an okay school not a great school but the worst school! Hope this helped a little.
I have read a lot of reviews on here saying that Keiser University is a horrible school, and many other horrible things, such as being much higher priced. Yes Keiser is more expensive but you are paying for a private University.
The tampa campus is incredible. My father recently graduated from there and I am now attending Keiser but I am currently an online student. All the staff I have come in contact with is extremely generous, they always return calls in a timely manner, and so much more. The classes are sometimes time demanding depending on the course but they are rather easy to complete.
I would recommend this school to any one, thinking about a degree.
Please read everyone's post . This school is horrible. I am a single mother working full-time so I chose online classes for my convience. Well its not worth the headache they gave me. The financial aid department does not know what they are doing . Admission department are liar.
My schedule says my last class was in January and now that time had come they add 3 classes that I have already taken at FAU after they accepted them in August. Now I have to do the fit work to get if resolved. I will keep u posted.!!!!! Ugh!!! So disappointed
The people that work at the school are the worst. No one communicates, they ALL have a nasty attitudes. I was told that there were NO CLINICAL classes for RN- BSN, but there are Three. I was told that I have 20 classes to complete the course and these dirty scoundrels added two extra classes (NO SUBSTITUTES). They do not believe in returning phone calls or emails. I wish I never came across them. They will set you up for FAILURE.I HATE KEISER UNIVERSITY. I had 7 months to go now its 9. Is it legal for them to do this? Help Me
Wow, where do I start, and where do I find help? And also, what can I do to forewarn people about the mistake they may be making enrolling in an Asoociate's degree program at Keiser. I attended Keiser for almost 2 years online, in which time I earned an Associates of Arts Degree in Health Service Administration.
First, let me say that mt research has told me that the AVERAGE cost of an associates degree is around $7,000.00. With under 5% being above $30,000.00. I am saddened to know that now that I have attended Keiser, and received an AA, I will NEVER be able to continue my education any further, due to my OUTRAGEOUS bill of over $30,000.00. This even AFTER making monthly payments for two years, and receiving NUMEROUS scholarships as well as Pell Grants (some thousands of dollars each). With 30,000$ in debt for ONLY school, and a whopping $350 a month payment for the next TEN YEARS OF MY LIFE (this is only paying back $11,000.00 of interest, where if I choose to pay $150 per month I will be paying over $60,000 for my ASSOCIATES DEGREE and will take me over 25 years to pay!!!!!)
I just graduated on Aug 20 from Keiser University Lakeland,Fl. From the beginning the RT teachers,clinical coordinator, program director, and dean of allied health sciences have been negative and condescending. There were many comments made to my class specifically about how "horrible and difficult they know that this class is and that all we do is blame our problems on the teachers because we can't take responsiblilty for our own actions".
Well let me tell all of you something...if this school makes a mistake they will never admit it. I wish I had never attended Keiser. It was the biggest mistake I have ever made. A very expensive mistake at that...$40,000...and all they tell me is oh well for screwing me over.
The first week of my radiology program they hand us all a huge stack of papers and they have to all be signed by the end of the week and then when you need their help they shove these papers back in your face and say see you did know...wow thanks. Im expected to remember something a year and a half later. If anyone else has been through their RT program then you know that you have homework and quizzes and tests all the time.
And clinicals? DOnt even get me started. Most of their clinical sites are a joke. A waste of time. I went to Bayview Radiology for my 2nd clinical rotation. This place taught me nothing. All they did was ignore me and then try to use me. I paid to be treated like crap. This school is a complete and utter rip off. All they care about is themselves. I can honestly say that there are only 2 teachers there that actually cared about the students in my class. I have to wait 3 months to take my RT registry because of a mistake that they made and all I get from them is an oh well..While all my fellow students are takeing their exam and applying for jobs Im sitting here waiting. Thank you Keiser University for being horrible and selfish. All I can tell you is run run run....
DONT MAKE THE MISTAKE I DID ALL I CAN SAY IS THAT THE EDUCATION SUCK RADIOLOGY TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM HISTOLOGY TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM 5 DAYS 5 HOURS IN A CLASS SUCK A TEST EVERY FRIDAY SUCK KEISER DONT CARE ABOUT EDUCATION ALL THEY WANT IS YOUR MONEY PLEASE PEOPLE TAKE MY ADVISE AND ATTEND A PUBLIC UNIVERSITY OR A COMMUNITY COLLEGE.
Nothing but a money hungry school!!! Everyone is extremely nice until you're in & they have your money! They play games, don't answers emails, phones calls, ANYTHING!! A RIP OFF!!!! They will tell you all these "requirements" you need then when it's done tell you that you didn't get all of them & need to get more or your GPA isn't high enough! ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTED! DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME & MONEY! I'M EMBARRASSED TO SAY I WENT TO THIS SCHOOL! You don't know who's worse, the directors, the dean or the campus president! NEVER! I'm in the midst of suing them! TRUST ME.. STAY AWAY!
keiser is not a good school at all. they make you take all these loans out and over charge you for everything im almost 25 and spent most of my life not being in debt because of keiser im now in debt. Horrible horrible school when it comes to money and they try whatever to suck money out of you. the money goes straight to them and does not go to you first i would recommend any other college besides keiser, horrible school and most of the people that go there already have money problems and cant afford anything.
i feel sorry for all the people that attend that thief crooked school i just wish one day they get so many cases where students sue the school . I would not want any future student to think about going to this school.
In short DO NOT ATTEND KEISER, YOUR FUTURE WILL BE BRIGHTER AND YOU WONT HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE ROLLERCOASTER RIDE.
I currently hold a B.S. Marketing and was thinking of turning my passion for fitness into a new career as a physical therapy assitant. I need to A&P I and II to be amitted to the program. As, a older student I did not qualify for federal grants. I was planning to take one Class on line to see how I did. They said the I should apply for a federal loan. I tried and they said that that I had to apply for a semister. I dod not think I would get the loan but I did. I asked at the time that I was only planning to take one class and if I did get a B as required I would not continue. They said that ok that I had to apply for a loan for the semister but I could withdrawl.
I took A&P I on-line thinking that it was 8week course it was only four. It was a a lot of work which was fine but you are not learning you read the book and take test in which the questions are very obtuce. I thought it was just me. I have been out of school a long time. My friend who is a physical therapist stated you can not possibly learn this stuff in 4 weeks. I got a C and quickly withdrew from A&PII I paid for the class took. However, because I have a loan the school feels they are intitled to it. I wish I never got cohersed into applying for a student loan. I now owe $,1,890.36 cents for a class I did not take.
The people there are very professional when applying however, if you have a conflict no one calls you back. The fact that the program you looking at has waiting list and you must apply now or you may not get into the program. It's also interesting to note that many area schools do not accept credit from classess taken at this college.
This school is very expenive but I doubt people are getting a quality education. This is the pinnacle of what is wrong with the florida education system. Study for the FCAT college style.
