Keiser University eCampus Reviews
Easy going campus with flexible schedule for the student that holds a full time job
Having attended many colleges and universities on my educational journey, I can tell you this is a great college. I have attended public and private schools and once I started taking my education seriously, I learned which was the best for my learning style. I need a schedule that will allow me to work and attend to my family obligations. The online learning at Keiser is perfect. Time management is a big skill you will need. I love the way the masters program is set up. NO one can make your educational experience perfect but YOU. GOOD LUCK.. see you on blackboard~ :)
After going to this college for almost 2 years I ended up not being to graduate, because they miscalculated my classes and I had one more class to take and because it's one class they cannot provide financial aid. Its terrible we go to school to better ourselves to get a career and yet because of an error made by the school a student is left with student loans and no way to graduate because of a lack of financial aid. Thank you KEISER for NOTHING
As a graduate from Keiser University, I would say this experience has taught me a life long lesson of education can take you many places. With this being said, after reading a few of the comments already listed stating that the school is unprofessional and a waste of time, I would have to diversely disagree. If you are considering Keiser University, as with any other school, you must realize that you are your number one advocator. You are the only one who will determine if you are going to be successful or not. The choice is completely up to you. I have nothing but good things to say about the staff, teachers, financial aid staff, etc., that have helped me along the process of earning my diploma. The flexible class times are AMAZING! Being able to focus on just one subject at time seemed to help me concentrate more at the subject at hand rather it be math or biology. I have four children and raising them is my full time job. Yes, there were times I was up just before midnight turning in a paper or reading an assignment but like I said, you are your first advocate…the teachers are next. They want you to succeed and will go beyond their ways most of the time to help you if you are in need. Pay attention to your financial aid; keep all your documents in one place to refer back to them if needed. Keiser is a terrific school if you are considering it for online courses. The online classroom associates you with other classmates in the same course you are in that month; there are weekly live class chats that were extremely helpful for me, plus you work at your own pace! At the moment, I am considering returning for my Bachelors.
I am a new student to Keiser and I'm second guessing this choice. I've been mis-informed multiple times and several things have fallen thru the cracks during my admission process. Professionalism? I'm sure about that because I expect efficiency from professionals. My experience so far leaves me unwilling to recommend Keiser to anyone or even admit that I'm a student of theirs. I hope things improve but I suspect that's not likely.
I am not very fond of online coursework and prefer the physical environment of a brick-and-mortar education institution. However, work and other activities outside of work forced me into the online environment t complete my doctorate, so I was very picky about what I wanted in an online educational relationship. I throughly checked-out several other online institutions, places like Capella and Walden. I was far from comfortable with those online institutions after only a week of being in their programs and dropped them quickly so that I would not be obligated financially. I landed at Keiser University Graduate School Doctorate of Business Administration (DBA) program and from the beginning, the overall experience with my admissions counselor (L M) was a very comfortable and pleasant one. My financial aid counselor also was able to help me obtain two separate scholarships for my military service and my employment with the federal government. The learning experience has been a comfortable extension of the one I received in the universities admission process. My only complaint is that the university recently converted from Moodle to the student unfriendly BlackBoard Online Learning System like many other online learning institutions. BlackBoard, at times, requires students to spend more time navigating the BlackBoard online portals, than in the actual classroom if you want to get anything done. Keiser really should have stuck with the much more student friendly Moodle set-up. But where BlackBoard fails Keiser, the professors make up in a very big way and I have been tolerating the BlackBoard Online Learning System. At Keiser University Graduate School I am extremely confident that I will earn my doctorate and I am enjoying my learning relationship with my professors. As far as online institutions are concerned I am very happy that I am here, and I have been proudly recommending it to friends and family that seeking an online education degree program. I ask them to steer clear of the haters out there that rate the school poorly, they seem to have an axe to grind and take it out in these forums. Of course everybody is entitled to their opinion, but in my opinion and experience Keiser University Graduate School stands far above many other online institutions when compared to many others that are out there purely for the education money grab.
I am writing this review because I honestly do not wish any student to experience the same as I did, this school is a joke. All they care is about getting paid and nothing else.
Everyday they would take a student out of the classroom to go meet with financial aid and each time they interrupted the class. Another issue is that since they are in love with your money, the quality of everything is poor. The last thing they did to me was that after my fafsa grant arrived 2 months prior they decided to keep the money because I decided to withdraw from their classes and not continue into the next semester.
One months to learn a class is not enough, you end up forgetting everything by the time you are halfway through the following class. Please do not waste your time and money and find a more decent school, there are ways that you can make it without having to deal with this kind of people. Thanks and have a great day.
Kieser University is not honest about the cost of using their online program nor will they take credits from another college; they want you to repeat courses over even if you already did them.
They tell you there is a education fee of $400.00; which is a one time fee; what they dont' tell you is that one time fee is every semester so that adds up.
If you want your grades you have to pay a $5.00 fee; if you behind in your education fees they will not provide you a copy until that is paid in full.
They are expensive,I suggest going to someplace else Kieser needs to be shut down for online courses. There are more negative things about this college then good. OUTRAGEOUS COST FOR ONE THING.
The program and school itself is accredited but what an associates in nursing will cost you from Keiser University versus at a community college or even another university is 2.5 TIMES the amount per semester.
They try to make the admissions process seem exclusive and like a "challenge" to lure you in and have you take the TEAS before you have even attended any prereqs when most programs require you to take them AFTER. There is a reason why this school has bad reviews. Unless you are completely ignorant and/or oblivious, beware.
Please look around at local community colleges or county tech schools. I am strapped with a huge student loan...it is not worth it.
