"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."

"Not only did Keiser University help me with the hands on training that I needed to walk right from my graduation into the job I wanted, I knew that everyone from the Admissions team to the Professors actually cared about my success. I will forever be grateful to the faculty and staff that helped me achieve my goals."

"Disgusting school. Erica and the whole staff are very money hungry and don’t want students to actually succeed ! All they care about is trying to make an extra school avoid this school ! I wouldn’t recommend my worst enemy to this school. CON ARTISTS !"

"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."
