Keiser University eCampus Reviews
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.
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.
What a great group of people! My professors and the other students made learning easy and fun. The bursar and finance departments were great and explained EVERYTHING in great detail - I am VERY type A so, I made them explain things 3 and 4 times. I am able to get credentialed and work in my chosen field (supply chain) with a starting pay of $65,000 per year. I am a happy student.
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. If you do your part, this university will pay off.
