"This school is utterly worthless. Every counselor hands you off to someone else to be there problem. When you get the wrong class/materials for your degree path you are told to just take the class. Teachers are there to just get paid, all the while will actively pick apart your writings to lower your grade and step to the side with any questions about the material. DO NOT ATTEND THIS AWFUL SCHOOL. ABSOLUTE WASTE OF 30K+."

"DO NOT TRUST THIS SCHOOL! I never graduated from Keiser because I ran the first chance I got. I started with Keiser in 2018 and was super excited to go into their online Clinical Mental Health Counseling program for a Masters Degree. They hyped up everything about their school and told me how awesome it would be to go into the online program because I work full time and this was a "do at your own pace". They of course explained that things still had certain due dates and that is to be expected. What they never mentioned to me was that there was a mandatory scheduled video session for each class weekly and it was like sitting in a classroom, only the instruction through this system sucked. If I wanted to (or had time to) attend classes, I would have found an on campus program to go through, but I specifically chose Keiser due to their online program. Not only did the scheduled video times not work for me but they leave a total disadvantage for learning, in my honest opinion. It was unorganized and the interaction between both the peers and the teacher was uneasy/uncomfortable. For a student who is more shy or does not speak out directly, to try and get a comment in was difficult and their was no "hand raising" like you would find in a normal classroom setting. Also, if you missed a class or did not "participate" in a class, meaning you didn't get a chance to speak or say something, you got a failing grade towards the video participation which was a big chunk of your grade. Also, the due dates they mentioned were rather unreasonable, even for a masters program. I really did not attend this school for very long as the first class meeting was a major red flag, so I withdrew asap. Now, amidst the unfortunate circumstances we are in during COVID, Keiser had a bill collector call me, demanding that I pay them over $6,000. FOR WHAT?! I did not waste their time nor did I waste any of their resources, but they definitely wasted mine because I didn't even get my degree (or really attend their school) and now they want money that I don't have. I shouldn't owe them a single cent but to try and get them off my back, I attempted to offer $3,000 (which is being gifted to me becuase I don't even have that) and instead of giving me an answer, they have put me off for several weeks (despite my numerous annoying phone calls to them). Now, if I don't start paying the $6,000 they are guna mark my credit report negatively. And you know the best part? I still never received a single bill from Keiser. They're just a bunch of liars who want to take your money, so if you want to waste it on them, be my guess, but I would advise against it."

"The worst decision I made was to transfer to Keiser University. Within 4 months of my enrollment, I was already $9,000 in debt for student loans. This school hindered my academic success in so many ways. During my initial on the phone orientation, the counselor stated that the school would “help me find a job within my career choice.” It was untrue. Something that I found to be incredibly shady, was the fact that they make you take a quiz based on your experience with enrolling in the school. They will send the quiz back to u repeatedly, if u don’t mark the answers that benefit them. There were many discrepancies from the very beginning. Another example of how dishonest the staff members of the school are, is the fact that they make it seem like everything is covered by grants/loans. Think again! They make you pay a lot of extra stuff. As far as the actual educational content from professors, I’ll give it a 8/10. Professors are quite flexible for the most part, and cover essential material. The school allows you to take one class per month, and the number of classes you are allowed to take increases depending on your academic performance. I would reccomend exploring all possible options in order to avoid going to this school."

"This is an insanely overpriced school with a funny amount of instruction hours on campus. 1 month for 1 subject, you have to move fast and your ability to comprehend the material doesn’t matter to instructors. Supposedly they provide tutoring, but tutoring is not much different from a regular instruction time when you just sit in front of a computer and try to figure it out on your own. Some instructors are totally out there and live in their fantasy land where everyone is supposed to be a scholar and researcher, in particular Doctor Porter. This lady’ s assignments are insane to say the least. Not only the topic of the so called research paper is bizarre, but you are limited to your resources- KEISER’s library. When I honestly tried to do my best and realized that the assignment was designed by a lunatic, that was the time to leave this school. I don’t understand why they convince you to enroll first and tell you how welcome you are to become a part of Keiser, then strongly encourage you to leave. Thank God not every school is like that. I am sure some folks are nice there but overall it’s a very unfriendly, impersonal and uncaring environment."

"I came to Keiser b/c I was on academic probation at Broward College within my second semester of attending! It was either sit out a year or attend a different school. Keiser gave me a second chance,It is a private school so it is more expensive than public schools. The only thing I can say that I disliked about Keiser would have to be the building being out dated, overall it was an okay school. Smaller class sizes, tutoring available, work study opurtunity, small school. I did what I had to do and graduated with my AA and transferred to FIU earning my bachelors degree. While attending Keiser there were a lot of people with negative mindsets that complained about a lot of things but at the end of the day go in to learn what you have to learn and graduate. EVERY school is a business and care about money!"

"Do not waste your time with Keiser. I previously earned two degrees with Keiser in 2011. I was suppose to graduate in May with a Bachelors in Health Science. I believe they changed staff since 2011. Ive never had a problem with them til now. Nearing my last semester, I was told my financial aide ran out and I now had 2 semesters left when I was initially told I had 1 left. There were no resources for students with little to no aide. The financial aide department is the worst! Everytime I called to set a payment plan to pay out of pocket, everyone had a different answer. My tuition amount changed to a higher amount everytime I contacted them. They never had a straight forward answer and would take days to get back to me. Not only that, when I logged into my portal, I see I was enrolled for 2 Bachelors, which is probably the reason why my aide ran out! I never enrolled for another Bachelors! They just want to milk your money and time. And now they blocked me to request my transcripts!"

"This school drained me out. They did not offer me financial aid. You are only allowed to take one course at time. When I attempted to request more courses there the one, I was told that it would be cheaper to double up the classes and the school was not willing the loss of a few thousand dollars. Therefore I was not able to earn my degree faster. Even though I practically had straight As. Save the time and the misdirection of this corporation!"

"This school has to be the worst school I have ever attended. I literally feel like if I have been stolen from. The teachers don't go by their syllabus and no one cares. I tried to reach out to my program chair and no one wanted to help me until it now resulted in me withdrawing and not only to find out that FIU doesn't accept their credits anyways. If you are trying to get into a good school please stay far far away from keiser. All they will do is take your money like they did to me. I am now paying 2,000 just to leave the school and I only attended class for 2 weeks so I am basically getting charged 1,000 per week. Additionally, im not even sure now if they will accept my AA its the worst school ever. I now how to pay for a class I have learned nothing in and the teacher failed to teach me. They drained me with money and now I have to pay double the consequences because I have to try to find a good school which will accept my credits."

"I really like Keiser University eCampus. The classes are fast paced and dedication is required. My professors are always willing to help and give feedback on any assignment I turn in. Every week in grade book you can check your grades and read a comment from your professor. These comments are usually an opportunity for the instructor to give you feedback on how well you are doing or how to improve your work. I have emailed my professors questions and always got a reply within 24 hours. The work load is always bearable and if you encounter a problem a dean is just a phone call away. Keiser University eCampus had been a true blessing and wonderful experience so far. I would recommend this school to anyone who wants a great education and a great experience. I work two jobs and have a family to take care of on top of attending school and have no problems keeping up with the easy to use Blackboard system. Each assignment is posted with deadlines and instructions as well as a message board to interact with your classmates every week. I usually get most of my assignments done with in 3 days so I can focus on the other aspects of my life the rest of the week. Stay focussed and chose the right school for your needs. If what I said about Keiser sounds good then check it out, if not I wish you the best in finding what works for your needs. Every school isn't perfect for every student. Keiser works for me and many others."

"Whoever is considering to go to school and get an education, Congratulations! That is a big step towards your career, future. Keiser University was truly a wonderful experience for me. I highly recommend anyone to go to this University. Reviews are good to look into but you have to see, try, and take that leap of faith on your own. If this school matches all what you are looking for then what is stopping you? Keiser was a great fit for me. The convenience, flexibility, EXTREME help, kindness from everyone there to having a career which Keiser helped me with through the Student Service department. Keiser is there to help every step of the way but you have to make that step. If I could rate Keiser from a 1 to 10, I would give them a 20+...... You will not be sorry with this University"

"DO NOT attend Keiser! DO NOT!!! First, they are ridiculously expensive!!! 6 thousand dollars a semester??????? What the heck was I thinking. Florida International University costs less than that for a YEAR! You can also attend community colleges and not get ripped off like this! I attended for only 3 months, took 3 classes and now they are charging me for the whole semester (6K). The online classes are TERRIBLE. You get in thinking you will have online classes right? No, what you get is your teacher telling you to read, read, read and then you have assignments. You literally learn on your own. There are no classes with the actual professor. Nothing. If you understand and learn, good for you, if you don't, oh well... Be also careful that if you ever decide to leave, you will not be able to to attend any other school until you have fully paid them. They will not release your official transcript even if you had set up a payment plan with them and other schools won't let you attend without receiving the official transcript from Keiser!!! Run away from this University! They do not provide a service that would justify such high price!"

"Not only am I now in debt, but I did not graduate nor did i receive the help needed to graduate. Up until the day I began classes I had excellent help getting set up with a payment plan and all the "necessary" programs for my laptop. It wasn't until I began attempting to do my class work that i discovered all the links were broken, my emails for help went ignored, and due to logging in after three weeks, ONLY to email my instructors before having to withdraw, did I receive feedback claiming that I now owe over $1000 for a college I wish I had never trusted. I was scammed, pushed farther back in my life, and now cannot attend any other college until my unfair and unjustified debt is paid."

"While this is an excellent career choice and degree program, I find that Keiser's tuition is far from the norm. The program is 6-semesters long at a cost of $10,000 per semester--$60,000 for an Associates of Science degree. My Ph.D. was $66K--really people. I am also not certain whether the program is accredited by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Students may want to visit their webpage. Students may want to seek other options that are more cost effective and receive the same degree--website medical technology schools."

"This school is a joke... All my financial aid had not cleared by the date I was promised to start! However, financial aid let me start anyhow and informed it should clear before the financial aid deadline. Months into taking my classes, I had been informed my financial aid was incomplete! Although, I submitted ALL requested documents MULTIPLE times they continuously requested MORE AND MORE. I was then informed that the period had closed out so I would need to apply for student loans to pay off all my balance otherwise, I'd be held responsible and would not be able to take classes if the full balance isn't paid. That turned into "it's too late" the period to pay for the 6 classes I took was closed and I was then responsible for the balance of $9,810, which is now on my credit! I obtained a 3.74 GPA!!! (You're welcome for boosting up your school grade:) FOR NOTHING IN RETURN.) Keiser would not work with me, assist with finding any other options and also blocked my transcripts. I am now at square 1 with having to start school all over again with a high balance on my credit I have to pay because my credit was severely damaged due to this balance. All this due to disorganization and lies! I advise anyone to avoid going here and if you choose to, make sure all your financial aid is cleared before you begin any classes."

"It has been a few years since my last degree earned from Keiser and while I can say I'm professionally excelling I do not give much credit to the institution for my success. The professor demonstrated poor leadership and assistance. Once you graduate you will not be given grants your entitled to and will be left with what in reality is an unethical cost for a degree. Many COTAs who graduated from this university are not knowledgeable of the new healthcare regulations or documentation requirements. My personal experience from having hands on experience with management/operation within scope of practice of CMS, ACHA and all relating federal state regulations is that Keiser does not prepare and is behind with the healthcare changes. As a former graduate of Keiser as COTA the education level and hands on is not even close to being worth the cost you'll pay for it unless you have a current position you are growing in for increased clinical degree in short time. The financial aid do not educate in loans, grants or cost....sad that today in the world when 90% of the graduated adults will live in credit their is not a course on loans and etc for the new college students but a rush stack of papers requiring signatures so they can be processed for the beginning semester. After the vent to sum up my experience; the education is not worth cost and you will find yourself trying to educate yourself and felling angry."

"Although I have not graduated yet (projected graduation date is March 2017), I wanted to take the time to express how great my experience at Keiser University has been. Yes, the school is expensive, but no more than any other private university. Everything about my experience thus far has been wonderful. The teachers I have encountered are all excellent and responsive. The one time I had to reach out to the dean of my program, she was beyond helpful in changing my course schedule to reflect the required math course I would need to transfer.

"I got my AA and BA in Health Services Administration from Keiser University online campus and was told about all the possibilities after graduation. I received no help in finding employment nothing was offered. They tried to recruit me to get my masters from Keiser. The education was meaningful, I did learn. The promises are empty though. I got my MBA with a concentration in Healthcare Management from Columbia Southern University this an online school as well. I am now a Prevention Specialist in the Health Department making $25, 872.00 and I owe $91, 300.00 in student loan debt. I cannot get a mortgage, car loan, credit card with such a high debt to income ratio, My credit is clean I have no negatives on my credit report. But this student loan is so huge! I am just stuck and cannot do anything. Please beware of student loan debts and read everything. When someone tells you it is only $10,000. you need to see in writing is it $10,000. per semester, per class, per month, per year etc. Please know the facts. Make sure your school is fully accredited by all accrediting agencies and not by one accrediting agencies. Make sure your degree means something get a degree that you can get certified. Certification is what gives you the pay. It says you have done the courses and passed a state test and you are capable according to the state. Do not do what I did my life is on hold my life is stuck."

"Liars , cheaters and scammers. My original loan balance after leaving school was roughly $90K , I currently have it down to about $78K right now. Keiser Universities Financial Student Aid department as well as their Curriculum department responsible for diplomas and what classes that are needed to be taken in order to graduate are looking to do anything and everything they can do take your money and bury you in debt. How is it even possible that over 4 years, never did I receive financial Aid or Grants that I applied for ? How is it possible that I have over $90K worth of student loan debt. for an accounting degree - in which I am currently working in Sales because no actual accounting firm wants to hire me because I am a Keiser University Graduate. cant tell you how many times , I would get phone calls for the bursars office demanding I pay my semester fees, or how many times Financial Aid would tell me not to worry about my student loans , that I should just Max out my credit cards or that I am in good hands with Sallie Mae. Currently with a 6.5% interest rate, never in my life time am I going to be able to pay these ridiculous fees and interest. By the time I am 55, I will still have over $50K worth of student loans and would have paid $221,000 in student loan debt plus interest over the life time of my loan. My life is at a complete stand still because of how Keiser University treated me and other students. Classes were added onto my schedule that I did not need to graduate. I was in my 4th year and half way thru I realize that I had classes added to my schedule list that I was told I would need to graduate when in fact I did not . When it was time to graduate with all my credits and classes I was told I do not qualify . It took me 3 months to get my Diploma after I finally proved to them that I had taken all the classes needed to receive my BA in accounting . How does something like this even happen ??? My Advice, you have options, other better options, do not fall into the same trap as the other Alumni's of Keiser University, do not go down the same path I did to have to have a life time of Student Loan debt, where you can never buy a house, where you can never be out of debt, where when you die your student loans will come with you . Also any of the positive reviews on the site , are more than likely fake and created by Keiser Universities IT department. I have never met a single graduate or person that has attended or graduated from Keiser and are thrilled with the outcome and end result & that includes my own sister. Who never, never , never was able to get hired or find an Ultra Sound position because her main school reference was Keiser University . No one who runs a successful business wants or needs Keiser university graduates. Do a simple Google search and see how many litigations over the last 4-6 years the Department of education and others have thrown at Keiser, I am up hauled that they are still in business, But I guess when you are worth Millions if not Billions like Mr. Keiser is , you can hire the best of the best lawyers to prove your case and continue on scamming ppl out of their money they do not even have yet , and when they do have that money it doesn't even belong to them , it belongs to Kesier. ... One last thing, I read someone else's response in regards to how they find it funny when people say you go To Keiser University to pay Thousands of dollars for a degree. Well I got news for you that is exactly what you are doing , because a Donkey a pass any one of their in school or online classes, it is a Joke. And yes I attended both in school classes and online classes."

"Let me start by saying that I completed my bachelors at Keiser and went on to graduate from my first choice law school in my state. It is unfortunate that Keiser continues to be stigmatized as a result of false reports. First and foremost, Keiser is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) just like UF, FSU, UCF, USF, UM, and all other major Florida universities. So the statement that credits from Keiser will not transfer is a lie. Second, the comment "I would rather go to community college and work twice as hard." If you weren't working hard at Keiser, that's probably why you are no longer a student. Keiser's classes are one month. At a traditional school a class is four months. Thus, at Keiser, you are learning a month's worth of material each week. It is comparable to summer school courses wherein you are learning 15-16 weeks worth of material in 7. It is by no means easy and you have to be a committed, responsible student. Lastly, the financial aid process is very transparent. You are informed of the tuition (yes it is expensive) as well as federal and private financial aid options. News flash, if you do not fulfill your obligations by completing the semester, a college or university must return those federal funds to the government. Do you really think they are going to take a loss on your behalf? No. That is why you have to repay. Additionally, if you are enrolled and behind in your payments, yes, you will be blocked from class. No one is blocked just because. So do not place the blame on the school because you didn't handle your business and commit to your education."
