What a horrible and disgusting way to run a buisness. This is only care about money You can get your degree at another school for so much less. I had an associates degree from another college, came here, they took the credits and STILL I ended up with almost 20k in debt. I feel so stupid now because when I signed up I thought I was making an attempt to better my life.They also hold the right to raise tuition at any moment WITHOUT notice. I was down on my luck and made a stupid decision to come here.
I would definitely say stay away from the Port Saint Lucie Keiser campus!! I was the Frist in my family to go to college. My major was RT, it was a two year course. The financial aid department was hasty to have me enroll into the class, my husband and I ask several questions and the answers were very vague. My GE classes were online which I had no problem with, except my Father had a stroke in the beginning of my Math course and I had to drop the course and ended up paying $2000 more because of that, which was the first thing that was not just, the school would not accepted my Father's doctors note I started my core classes and everything was going great, up to my 4th to last class, my doctor had put me on some medication that was not agreeing with my system, and the clinical director took notice and called me into his office. He stated the way I was acting was not normal and that I should take medical leave, which I was going to do, until the Dean said it would be better if I stayed so I could repeat the classes again (free of charge). I listened to his advice, because I trusted him, and repeated the classes again, however, I was still on the medication and I missed the grade by 1 point to pass the class, but I did have a B+ average. The director took me to the Dean's office once again, the Dean could of pass me, but in reality, I needed to be put on medical leave until I sorted the medication out with my doctor. The worst part is later I found out that those classes I repeated, I should have taken when I came back from medical leave. In essence the Dean of the school lied because he did not want to fill out the medical leave papers in the first place. KU failed me out of the school because of one point, now I am left with a $47,000, , bill, no Radiology Degree and, no descent job to pay for it. Basically, Keiser University screwed me over the coals. Therefore, I would not recommend the school to know one!
This is by far the worst university I have ever had to deal with. They preach they are "students first" but will keep your leftover private loan money so that they do not have to give you your scholarships. They do not care if they are overcrowded, they continue to accept students knowing they do not have the space to accomodate the students.
I don't know all the stuff that everyone here went through but i can say that people are more likely to write the bad and forget the good. I went to keiser twice. Once 8 years ago which i did like a year and stopped and than i came back and finished my bachelors. I had a great experience! AS LONG AS YOU do your work, pay on time and repeat those 2 steps you will graduate with no problems. If you're going to complain, and make excuses like " i work 3 jobs, or i work too much etc" you're going to fail because no one cares about your excuses we all have problems. Deal with it.. Its easy, work hard and be on time and you will graduate. PERIOD. Also, i did the ONLINE PROGRAM so i can't speak for those who went on Campus.
Avoid at all costs. Have 100k in student loans and no prospects for a better job or life. The jobs placement is put your resume up on a jobs search site and pray. The dress code they have for non-existent job recruiters that may show up is window dressing but the final straw was I applied for a job at keiser and was turned down form letter. Nothing says quality education than the university not considering its alumni for a position. Stay far far away from this place.
STAY AWAY. They make this place look like a dream come true. They have the MOST unqualified people teaching classes. Example: A legal Studies professor taught my Advanced Photography class and she ADMITTED to not knowing the first thing about cameras. Next: If you fail class A or take Class B class instead of A, 99.99% of the time you have to wait until the NEXT YEAR rotation to take class A. Usually pushing your graduation date back a year. Also if there are no available classes for that month you get a gap...which you pay for as if you were taking a class. $2,000 for a gap. They pretend to want to help you in financial aid but they don't. They lied to me in admissions saying tuition would be $25,000, I am in debt $45,000. My two classmates who took the same classes and graduated the same ended up with tuition fees of $50,000 and $70,000. WE TOOK THE SAME EXACT CLASSES. They also screw you over with internships. "We will help you find one." Lies. It took me a year and countless emails to find an internship which I had to quit my job to attend to get the hours I needed. Then half way through when I was covered under the semesters financial aid, they called me saying I owed $1,200 by the end of the week (called me on a THURSDAY) or all my hours I worked my internship would have been voided. EXCUSE ME?? I couldn't pay it because I wasn't working so I ignored it and now they say I owe them $2,300. They refuse to give me my diploma until I pay off this debt that is building interest. Never-mind my bills, car payments, insurance, and my loans I am paying back. I graduated a year ago and still do not have my diploma. All these people care about is money. Don't fall for their lies and scams. They are scam artists and will do anything to suck every last penny from you and STILL claim you owe them thousands. STAY AWAY.
Going to Keiser University the Professor was great. Doing my internship wasnt so great it was 8hrs from me I didnt get any help, finish school with a 3.42 GPA I NEVER DID BILLING AND CODING AT A REAL FACILITY NEVER GOT THE ASSISTANCE I NEEDED TO UNDERSTAND IT , I STILL DONT HAVE MY DEGREE BC THEY BEEN HOLDING IT FOR A YEAR NOW JUST BECAUSE I OWE A FEE I WASNT AWARE THAT I COULD HAVE GOTTEN USE BOOKS ANS I WAS GETTING ALL NEW BOOKS AND CAUSE ME TOO OWE THEM $1600.00 I was able too pay them $560 of it, Inhabent been able too find a job Im $36,000 thousand dollars in debt cant find a job. And when I reach out to the school they and the financial department they tell nothing we can do for you I decided to go back too school and they tell me I cant because I owe a fee, I have 3yr old son that I cant even take care of bc this. I was a great student never miss a day of school only when Harvey hit us and I still made away ! I worked hard and this degree mean so much to me and I feel they took it from me.
I went to the school and everyone was very friendly and helpful. I stressed this was my first time attending and wanted to make sure of all protocols and was not sure if I felt comfortable with " online courses as this was new to me" I am a single parent and work fulltime so was hesitant to sign up for something if I was unable to cancel immediately if not able to commit to 100%. IN was told that I was not able to access the online portal until the evening before to meet the professor and get an understanding of what is expected during the course but would be able to cancel within a few days with no issues. The 1st day of school I sent an email and left a message stating I would like to cancel due to many reasons and just did not think this was the best timing to proceed and please let me know what needed to be done to cancel. Long story short weeks have gone by with no communication on their end, I even sent them an email the first week and copied several employees because I was getting the sense I was being avoided still to hear nothing. Showed up on my day off Sat morning to return unopened books and they book store was closed and no one seemed to know a thing, I showed them my emails and messages and they were shocked!! Now almost being a month later I have not heard from the them besides harassment calls and emails asking me to sign up for classes for Feb. Needless to say be CAREFUL I was soo excited to start and felt they were helpful in the beginning and after I reluctantly signed the papers (this day I had just came from making funeral arrangements and it was the last day to sign up for classes so they knew I was beyond stressed but assured me not to worry). I fee l was scammed and just opened the mail today and received a bill for $ 2373 for a class I DID NOT EVEN TAKE??????? After being told I had a few days to cancel!!!?? SHADY maybe I'll finally get a call after this post???
Only online classes offered for medical billing and coding. For someone with no medical background, Keiser University proved to be a horrible financial decision. Here are the reasons why. 1) You will have to pay roughly $10,000 per semester. 2) Even if you drop out, you must pay for the entire semester, regardless of the reason(s) for not completing the semester. 3) You must cram a lot of information into each class, without ever actually knowing your professor; if you need quick help -- for any reason -- good luck. The professors are not career professors. They will get back to you when they can, hopefully. I got behind and it took over a day just receive a basic email from my professor. By that time, too late. I did not possess the remaining time needed to finish assignments/tests. I had another email my professor never even replied. Very unprofessional. I dropped out and now Keiser wants me to pay the remaining balance for my semester. This so-called 'University' is a complete scam. Find another source for your education, and good luck.
PLEASE DO NOT GO HERE!!!!!!! i am a just graduated high school student that has chosen to attend keiser in hopes of achieving a masters degree and becoming a nurse practitioner. THIS SCHOOL IS A JOKE!!!! the first problem was with financial aid. my mom started the process of getting everything paid for and ready a year before i was suppose to attend, fast forward, we are now a month before fall semester starts and they say they cant find any of my papers and that i wont be able to attend school unless they have my papers. so once they made my mom take time off of work to resend all of my papers that they lost they told us that it would be smart for my parents to take out a parent plus loan to cover the extra little amount that is not covered by my scholarships, and whatever money is left over from that i will be getting back, they told me that i should be expecting around $1000-2000 back during the month of october..... the month of october came and went and there was no money credited to my blackboard account. so i went in to talk to someone and they gave me every excuse they could possibly come up with every single week until the month of december when we were about to go on winter break. turns out. they pay your tuition with your loans first and then your scholarships and then whatever money you have left over from your scholarship ends up going to another student.......... please reread that and make sure you fully understand how poor their communication skills are...THIS IS A FOR PROFIT SCHOOL WHICH MEANS THEY WILL DO ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO S**** YOU IN EVERY POSSIBLE WAY OUT OF EVERY LAST PENNY YOU HAVE!!!! the nursing director when i went to go talk to her didnt even know what her own program entailed and on top of no one communicating with each other you are treated like a child. the dress code is absolutely ridiculious as well as their reason behind having one. i should not be paying $2000 per class and still being told what i can and can not wear like a highschool student. that is absolutely absurd. and anyone who still decides to go here after reading this is absolutely insane. i would rather be in debt over student loans than in this unorganized facility. OH!!! almost forgot to mention.... they bad mouth every other college they possibly can to make you think youve made the right decision, sort of like a toxic relationship... tearing down everything around you so that you feel lucky that they accepted you when actually theyre ruining you.
