Keiser University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (218)
I just graduated from Keiser University at the Port Saint Lucie campus. My experience at Keiser was great and while I do agree that they are expensive, I can tell you first and foremost, they really do care about your success. I hit a rough patch and was having trouble in my class and J. in financial aid actually took the time to talk with me, give me advise, motivated and actually put me with the dean where I was given tutoring by teachers that seemed to really care about me. I was able to pass my class which seemed impossible at first. I would have dropped out but I'm glad I didn't. I'm working at a hospital now and while I'm not making huge money yet, I have a job and making much more than I did before...I'm also just about to start the nursing program there and I am very excited and I feel I owe it all to this man who helped me when he didn't have to. I came in there to thank him one day and saw him helping another student in the same way he helped me. His help was sincere and they are all a great bunch of people.
Keiser is a great school! The professors are amazing! The school atmosphere is very supportive to each students success. The student services department is wonderful. Professor Brunson is a great mentor and resource for every student she meets! Great school!
The school is great and the faculty is awesome. I love how cozy the school is. It makes it nice to come here, feels like family. Dr. Chapman was so great in all of our classes. We held study groups once a week to go over everything in class to make sure that everyone had everything down.
I really enjoy the program and all of the professors help to help you reach your goal. The financial services are helpful but the option to defer portion of our tuition would help those who need to work. I do believe the Kinesiology class needs to be extended to 2 months because the amount of the information.
I have read many of these poor comments. Let me first say this: whatever you put into your education is what you will get out of it. I transferred credits from three colleges, they were all accepted. I first pursued my Associates in PhysicalTherapy Assistant, to learn in the process I did not have what it takes to finish my Anatomy and Physiology classes. I went to drop out and as they say in orientation, if you need a cheerleader we are here, we are here for you and your success is out success! Keiser Lakeland held to that saying, they cheered me on and supported me. They gave me the option to drop out, but also encouraged me to at least finish my Associates. So I stayed and I called the Dean, my Admissions Counselor, Financial Aid Officer, Bursar Office, Student Services and anyone that I ran into, yes even Professors that was not mine. They cheered me on, they supported me. I say this because I could have just dropped out and blamed them, but who would have been at fault? Me. I would have failed, not Keiser. So. Is Keiser perfect? No. But they try their hardest and they are genuine. I have spoke to the Campus President and even to Dr Keiser himself. Everyone makes time for you. If you do not seek assistance then they cannot help you. That is the bottom line. Before you sign up ask questions and take your time. Especially if you are a transfer student. Financial Aid will answer your questions with integrity. If you dont ask then point fingers at your self and not them. Read your paperwork. The majority of these comments could have been avoided if they read the paperwork to understand how tuition is charged. Okay. So bottom line: Keiser University is awesome and I would recommend them. In fact I am a second time student, I am working on my Bachelors at Keiser. Go SEAHAWKS!!!!
School is great :) H,M,M....are the best. I go to the one located in NPR, FL I really enjoy my time here. They try really hard to work with you. I think that people who actually take their time to work with you and care say a lot. They care about us
My son had several transfer credits from a community college before entering the College of Golf. They accepted his credits so he didn't have to retake the courses, but still charged the same amount for tuition. We questioned this, but they just gave the mumbo jumbo about how they charge per semester not be credit hours. My son graduated, is working as an Assistant Pro for $12.00 per hour. Still has to pay for Apprentice programs through PGA website to be able to advance further and has $500+ worth of student loans. This college is all about the maximum amount of reimbursement they can get from the government loan programs, you take courses that give you no advantage if you want to be a PGA professional. You can do that online on your own time for a fraction of the cost. I am currently working with an Attorney to sue the school for false advertising and taking advantage of students that are looking for something different than a four year University program. Do not go here unless you get grants and don't mind dropping $40,000 to make $10 to $12.00 per hour once graduated.
As someone who is active duty military and doing pure online classes through K.U. for over a year now, I haven't had any issues with the school. They've been extremely helpful and supportive through my odd situation. Even had two situations where I had no internet on deployment and was not able to log on my blackboard account, but was able to communicate with my professors through email to send him all due assignments for the week. Yes, it is expensive. As is any university. Was hard work but now only one semester away from my Associates, and immediately continuing for my Bachelors. It is what you make of it fellas.
Why does it seem that almost everyone who wrote a bad review about Keiser displays some of the worst grammar I've ever seen?! No wonder these people are angry- they most likely weren't doing well, and expected to get a good grade anyway as if this was Broward Community College. Yes, it's more expensive than BCC, but the teachers, administration, and financial aid personnel were wonderful, dedicated, and extremely knowledgeable. In fact, my financial aid adviser showed me how to apply to receive more funds for school, so I barely had to pay any tuition at all. On the contrary, after attending Broward College for one semester last year, I found it to be extremely disorganized, incompetent, and uncaring, starting from my academic adviser all the way to administration and professors. If you want quality, you have to find a way to pay for it, and Keiser turned my whole viewpoint around after such a bad experience at BCC. Further, Keiser allowed me to transfer all my BCC classes as well as the credits I'd earned when I lived in New York, so I didn't lose any hard-earned credits. College isn't for everyone, but if you're really motivated to succeed, Keiser is one of the best colleges you can hope to attend in South Florida.!!!! Here's to working hard, instead of being 'passed along.'
I say this in all sincerity to anyone interested in their future goals, stay away from this school. My PCP warned me not to attend Kieser PA Program from past lawsuits with this school regarding scamming students financially, however it was the only school available with a 10 yr expiration date on credits. Having graduated so long ago, it would aid in not having to retake any past classes. To my surprise despite already having 2 B.S and meeting all pre-reqs , I was recommended to retake a few classes that I've already taken to boost my portfolio. I did hesitate on the idea since my degrees gained me admittance to a Med school in the past, but after further researching decided becoming a PA would be best fitting for variations/change in medicine vs having to specialize in 1 disciplines forever. I emphasized the need for an evening class to accommodate work and was ensured it would be avail. After registering for 3 classes, the financial aid advisor suggested in her honest opinion not to retake ANY class I passed already b/c Kieser prriority is making money not what's best for me. So I decided to only keep 1 (as a refresher) of the 3 courses, withdrew from one, and didn't take the 3rd since the was told the week of class by the advisor evening wasn't avail and was misinformed. I contacted the school to pay cash for the 1 class and was told I owe $7000 for all 3 classes. To add fire cannot apply to their program scheduled to start next year w/out a full payment for transcripts. Literally can not even apply to any other PA US program since omitting ANY school transcript (i.e.: Kieser) in an application will be deemed as automatic void for falsification (failure to report). I feel like I'm living a NIGHTMARE after spending 2yrs racking up qualifying healthcare hours to even make it to the point to apply to any schools. I was stubborn, as I'm not the type to determine my capabilities off of others failures. DO NOT FALL for the pretty picture they will paint, use my situation as a blessing in disguise and go elsewhere.
