"The Orlando campus is extremely unorganized, things such as class schedule or clinical site often get switched the night before. Administration does not do there job, they wait until the last possible minute to do anything and by then it is too late. I’ve had delays in receiving my financial aid money because the school did not file the proper paperwork for almost a month after it should have been done. Overall my entire experience so far has been extremely negative. The only thing this school has is a few amazing professors, but it’s not worth all the other bs you have to put up with."

"If you are considering attending this school, I seriously urge you to rethink your decision and NOT do it! This school should be shut down as there are several egregious practices that they seem to routinely engage in. First of all, it is my understanding that colleges/universities are supposed to operate with honesty, integrity, and transparency when it comes to enrolling students into programs. However, my experience with admissions representatives at Keiser University was the exact opposite. First, my admissions representative seemed more like a high pressured sales person than a person that is responsible for enrolling students into a school. I was made to feel as if I had to urgently enroll into the program right away, or else I wouldn't be able to attend the school at all. I felt that this was not ethical or professional for an admission representative to conduct themselves in this manner. Another issue that I experienced with this school was their over concern with the financial aid process, in particular, with getting me to accept student loans that I was not comfortable accepting and not thoroughly explaining the program costs or how the student loans would be allocated towards the costs of my program. I felt extremely pressured to accept loans that I was not comfortable with and the admissions representative seemed to get annoyed and frustrated when I attempted to ask additional questions so that I could gain a better understanding of what was going on before signing any financial documents. I am sure that university employees should not behave in such a manner and pressuring students to accept loans that could result in undue financial burdens is not only unethical, but illegal as well."

"Horrible experience would not recommend nobody to attend this school. I found the classes so intense. I needed counseling after attending this program and have changed major after. I can honestly say no wonder are health care department are some of the most heartless people after witnessing firsthand how people are taught here."

"Kaiser is horrible don't go here they add random classes to your schedule so you end up paying more or they randomly make you retake classes that you originally passed but then they say you didn't and change your graduation date. They are only looking for money not your best interest into getting you into your career."

"Where do I even begin, they make you take pre reqs to only deny you before even starting the program, super disorganized and ruthless. This is for the Miami campus, don’t even waste your time, money hungry and loose files along the way. You know how frustrating it is to call and they are completely clueless ? Make you take 4 pre reqs and pay out of pocket to be like sorry you are denied into the program."

"DO NOT GO TO KEISER UNIVERSITY!!!! They only care about you before they take your money, they are complete money grabbers. It costs an absolute fortune to attend the university, you’d expect the quality of teaching, the dorms, the food etc to be exceptional, but it’s everything but that. They give out FINES just to profit off you. For example, if you lock yourself out of your room, a simple mistake that anyone can make, they will charge you $10. If you step foot into a friends dorm, it’s an instant $25, and doubles with every occasion. If you drink alcohol in your own dorm, even if you are of legal age, you get a $125 fine. If you move furniture in your dorm, $50 fine. The list goes on. Not to mention, it is compulsory to buy a food package, but the food they serve at the flagship campus (west palm beach) is AWFUL. If you’re happy eating half cooked pasta and vegetables with watery sauce everyday with, this is the perfect campus for you. Not to mention, there has been several occasions I have found dead flies in my food. To add, the first day I arrived, I noticed that the dorm was completely infested with ants, even on my hard mattress that I had to sleep on, waking up with multiple bites all over my body. They advertise on their website that each dorm within stauffer have 2 individual study rooms, but again, upon arrival I noticed they had transformed them into private bedrooms, leaving us with no place to study within the ‘comfort’ of our own dorm. When asking for the desks to be placed into the living room, they told us that they can no longer provide us with these facilities. This is FALSE ADVERTISEMENT. We are paying for facilities that they refusing provide. The fact that the university will not even provide their students with a source of light or anything to cover the windows, really shows how cheap they are. In the dorms, they literally provide you with the bare minimum, you get a sofa and a small table in the front room, that is it. KEISER UNIVERSITY FLAGSHIP CAMPUS (west palm beach) completely drains you until you’ve got nothing left to give. I could not tell you one day I have felt stress free. I wish I never came to this university, not only have I spent my life savings coming here, but it has also wasted valuable time. If you choose to ignore the reviews and give keiser a chance, you will soon realise everything I am saying is completely true. Save your time and happiness, and find a university that care about you and your education"

"Attending this school is the worst decision I’ve made in my life. I would like to know what’s the official percentage of students that pass the program. In my pharmacology class I had 100s up until the final, THE ENTIRE CLASS failed the final. In my other class only 8 kids passed out of 24, and this is only the first semester. And no it’s not because the students don’t try and don’t study. I’ve studied 5-6 hours everyday, would meet with my study group a few times per week, stayed in the library more than I’ve been home during the semester. At the end you fail by 2 points and sorry got to retake the semester. No extra credit, no curves, when the entire class fails you’d expect for a grade curve. Seriously this expedited program is garbage, better go attend a regular college, do your 4 years in peace and don’t try this Keizer Casino, casino because the passing odds are not in your favor"

"I read a lot of reviews on here for fun. I noticed there are no reviews for the College of Dietetics and Nutrition which is a disservice to the staff who built that program. Keiser may not be the best school for nursing but the staff in the College of Dietetics and Nutrition at Pembroke Pines is a 5 star team. Many opportunities have opened due to the staff here and they have poured a lot into my future. Dr. Hernandez is a fantastic professor who truly cares about the progression of her students. She is real with you and won't make it easy; but, there is a deep sense of accomplishment when you beat her exams. The other professors in the Dietetics program are excellent for different reasons. As for Keiser University, I would not recommend this program to everyone. It is 1 class a month format. Be prepared to read one chapter a day. For the Nutrition program, be prepared to do 4-7 chapters a week, exams every week, discussion boards, monthly projects (15-20 page papers) with research papers. Finals week looks like this: Monday paper due, Tuesday project presentions + quiz, Wednesday: post-test, quiz, Thursday: Final. I would not recommend working while being in this program. Be prepared to dedicate 5-8 hrs per day to studying. If you can not commit to doing that, I would highly recommend looking into other programs like FIU for dietetics degree. What makes Keiser special, is that we are guaranteed placement for clinical rotations while students at other dietetics programs have to apply for dietetic internships and compete for the spots. That is why I came to Keiser. I wanted guaranteed placement and paid money for that. It paid off as I am sitting with a nice internship set-up. Be well informed and make the decision that is right for you. For dietetics/Nutrition, I would highly recommend it as I found the program excellent."

"BEWARE I attended Keiser at the Fort Myers campus in 2020, and left the program last fall due to a multitude of issues. I was in the BSN program, I had miserable professors who spoke poorly about other professors and students. I was declined meetings to review exams or go over hard content. Professors told us how they 'hated teaching students in person, and never took students under their wing due to not enjoying educating' The now senior class started with 22 students, keiser failed 19, making only 3 students eligible to test for their state boards. The financial aid department only allows one scholarship per student, and the financial advisors will always all tell you different things. After meeting with the dean, I was told that I should transfer out of the program, and to stop creating 'drama' Stay away from this university at all costs.... I am now at a different university, 12 months away from graduating and learning so much information, continually supported by my deans, and teaching staff."

"Keiser university in Tallahassee, Florida was a big step for me into becoming who I am today. The program director and program instructors are truly angel sent for keiser university in this area. They not only preach from day one that the class is family to them but also go about making that believable. They do everything in their willpower to enable their students for success. At times they put in more effort then I did for my own education and for that I thank them. Keiser university radiologic technology program in Tallahassee, Florida is an outstanding program because of the amazing staff that's supporting the it."

"PORT ST LUCIE, FLORIDA! AWFUL! I would never recommend anyone to this school. Its unorganized, a revolving door of professors, zero communication and just a money hungry business who treats students like merchandise on a shelf for sale. The Port St Lucie campus has been nothing but a headache and a million times worse since COVID. NO considersation for parents or those at home with families and home schooling. The most incompetent professors I have ever seen that in no way should be teaching those who will be giving life threatening drugs one day, its scary really. Being home with a baby and the worst virtual learning experience with god awful teachers caused me to fail to get kicked out of the nursing program. No I am in debt over $30k with NOTHING to show for it. I have gotten a lawyer and hope to have something done. DO NOT recommend this school."

"I was not aware of the TOTAL cost of tuition and if my aid and loans would cover it until after I had paid their registration fee. So, I found out directly after paying $55 that I couldn't even afford to attend. My financial aid advisor assured me they would refund the money. However, they have not made good on that promise. If you are looking at attending this college, do not pay the registration fee until they inform you of ALL tuition and fees."

"Altogether, I'm rating this college a 3, but that would be rather generous. I graduated just two months ago, and ended up not being able to pass my certification exam (which was not covered in the tuition price), because my coding classes took place last December, with about 7 or 8 months of classes left. I really enjoyed the classes, and the teachers were great! But I really wish that Keiser staff had set up my classes so the coding portion would come dead last and it could be fresh on my mind. I honestly can't complain about anything else. The teachers worked very hard to make sure they provided a good learning environment, mine were all online, so it can get rather difficult to manage sometimes, and they each brought something new to the table. All of them were excited to teach, and provided positive reinforcement to all of us!"

"DO NOT ATTEND. PLEASE IF YOU ARE READING THIS... TAKE IT FROM THIS REVIEW AND THE ONES BELOW. This university is there for YOUR MONEY. The teachers, staff, and everyone working for Keiser do not care about you as a student. I studied at Keiser University (Fort Lauderdale) for one semester (finishing pre-reqs) prior to enrolling in the PTA program. I took a total of four classes, passed with all A's. These were classes that could be taken online. I spent approximately 9,500 out of pocket to get into the PTA program the following semester. Let's fast forward to the start of the program. They used COVID as an excuse for EVERYTHING. The class was taught online/hybrid, the teachers were talking bad about the students during CLASS (Padrino & Jelaine James), they had you set up your phones as if you're on FACETIME for testing, the students and teachers were HUGE DISTRACTIONS (telling students when to logout and close their computer screens WHILE testing), teachers were DRAWING ON THEIR ARMS. Let's keep in mind this is a PRIVATE UNIVERSITY AT 10,000 A SEMESTER. Since when are practical application courses not PERFORMED IN THE CLASSROOM?! I was given my first practical exam online and could not visibly identify ridges on bones; therefore, this leads to failing the first exam. I called the teacher and asked to withdraw because of the way the class was being taught. Her response was to retake the test; yet, I would have to remain with the same grade regardless of what I would score on the second test. Due to the weight of the practical exam, this leaves the student with a high chance of failing the course. If I fail the class I would have to pay for the entire semester (10,000). The second option was to withdraw by the withdrawal date, and not owe for an ENTIRE semester of courses. Clearly, this is ABOUT MONEY AND NOT THE SUCCESS OF THEIR STUDENTS. The quality of education is extremely poor. It pains me to write this review and realize TONS of students FROM OTHER PROGRAMS are experiencing the SAME situation. Furthermore, the school is charging me 2,400 for a week of a course that was taught so poorly. The university is holding my transcripts from the semester PRIOR (PAID IN FULL) until the 2,400 is paid in full. NOT TO MENTION THEY GAVE ME AN "F" FOR THE COURSE AFTER WITHDRAWING BEFORE THE WITHDRAW DATE. More than half the class has dropped the program and some of the students are now owing for a full semester (10,000) which the university does NOT tell you while taking courses. So much for being so excited to do a program with KEISER. After you read these reviews I encourage you to trust STUDENT REVIEWS over KEISER employees working as PROFESSIONAL SCAMMERS. Keiser University will TAKE YOUR MONEY, DECREASE YOUR GPA, AND completely through your educational path off track."

"Awful experience. This place hires people with little to no teaching experience, and they do not teach at all. Nobody responds to emails, professors will grade your assignments weeks after they are turned in, and it seems like a giant Ponzi scheme. They refuse to acknowledge their teachers shortcomings, and they are not interested in actually producing nurses. They just want your money."

"THE WORST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE. As if 2020 wasn’t stressful enough, Keiser University has made it even worse. Between them not being able to keep a professor to them literally having half of my class fail instead of assisting us, knowing they are at fault. We’ve gone through numerous professors and even had new teachers for the last few months of nursing school, which is known to be the most challenging. I’m heartbroken, 70k wasted."
