Keiser University eCampus Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (72)
I first attended Keiser to receive my AS in Medical Assisting. Once I had finished, I was offered to receive my Bachelor Degree for another 14 months. I had completed all my classes and was waiting my Bachelor's I received a call from a dean I was mislead and I still have another 13 months of school.
My thoughts, OK just hurry up and get it done. I was even advised I should have kept better track of the credits. I thought I did I was told a specific number of credits and a specific number of classes. I finished them. Now I am having problems with finacial aide and I just want my to quit and get my original AS in MA that I earned and I am having problems. Conviented...yes, but at what cost.
Has anyone ever received a stipend check from Keiser?
I am currently attending Keiser. I have found few people to be helpful. While they do have a few great people, most are totally uncaring and no help at all. It is untrue that those who complain are not college material. I have a 4.0 GPA. Obviously, you did not do well in English Lit. You cannot even string two sentences together to make a thought. You must work for Keiser in the Financial aid department. They cannot add OR subtract properly.
The bookstore cannot fill book orders because they tell you that "they had more students than anticipated so have run out of books". Give me a break! I would NOT recommend Keiser. I will graduate with my AS from them because I have no choice. Their credits do not transfer. Do yourself a favor and go to a community college for your AS.
It will cost me over 30K just for my Associate's. Be smart, do not make the mistake I did!
I graduated from Keiser, I completed an AS and finished my BS on line. I would recommend Keiser to anyone, they are professionals and always happy to help. You read many negative complaints about the institution, but those complaining probably were not college material anyway, or do not have the means to pay for a college education.
People often do not see the rewards any college education would offer. they have dreams of attaining a college degree, but are not willing to work hard for it, and when dissapointed, bashing the insstitution seem to be the best way to address their problem. I guess that makes them feel better about themselves. People move on, College is not for everyone, it takes commitment, and perseverance.
As far as their accreditation, I am starting my MBA with FIU on December, everything transferred. The only reason I am going to FIU; is due to a Veteran's scholarship I was offered to help pay for the MBA.
Some of these comments are just not factual. Keiser is a very professional school and treats their students accordingly. They only hire instructors with Masters and Doctorates in the area of study. As far as caring about their students, they do EVERYTHING they can to help the students. I have personally witnessed the Deans helping students academically and personally to make it through their classes.
If you came to Keiser because you didn't want to enter a state school and you thought this would be an easy way out...it's not. The instructors are good and they demand excellence from their students. They work with them on their resume's and have seminars all of the time on leadership, interviewing, etc... There are two obvious reasons you are not getting a job,
A. It is a horrible economy, you are just going to have to work harder, no one is getting one not just you so don't blame an education path that YOU chose B. You can't even spell, don't you think that might hold you back a little?
I went there and decided not to attend because they are too exspensive and then months later I started rec calls from a rep there who was extremly rude when I told her I wasn't interested in attending, and she kept calling, I mean their worse that bill collectors!!!!!!!!!!
Ok I never heard of this school I put my information on a website to get information about a certain school some how they got my number. I chated with the lady on their she SEEMED really nice. I told her i didn't want to decided right then and there i wanted to think of it. She had me fill out some papers online. I told her i wanted to think things over is this gonna apply me for the school cuz I'm not sure yet if i want to go. She said NO. I started filling it out and then came to the part to pay. and i told her I'm not paying i don't even know for sure if i want to go. She became pushy trying to convince me. Oh she convinced me alright not to go there. Any place that is pushy is just hungry for your money. Trust me. I didn't even go there and I already know. Now she harasses me. She calls three times a day i never answer.
Keiser University eCampus is a wonderful institution of learning! Yes, it is expensive; however, it is a career college, which means that you are finishing significantly sooner than a student at a state university!! More importantly, KU is a regionally accredited college with the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of colleges! This is the same accreditation that state universities have.
Someone earlier mentioned that a paralegal degree from KU is not recognized by the American Bar Association. This is false! Do your research people. The on-line degree is not accepted, as with most on-line paralegal programs; however, an on- campus paralegal degree from KU is accepted, and even recommended!
In addition, I have to laugh at those who claim they were unaware of the cost of tuition, until they were already weeks/months into the semester! Sour grapes, if you ask me!! Before you are even completely enrolled, you receive a projected financial plan, which explains EXACTLY how much you will have to pay through the ENTIRE program. You must sign that you AGREE with the projection before you can start classes!
I just finished my 2 year degree with KU! And in a month or so, I will re-enroll for my BA. It was an amazing experience, and I am proud to be a KU graduate!
Just one more thing...On-line education is in a class of its own. An individual pursuing online education must be dedicated, determined, and academically disciplined! There is simply no room for laziness, whining, and expecting an easy ride!
I work for a private accounting firm and thought that my degree from Keiser University would promote me to a staff accountant. I was told that I should have went to FIU. The managing partner of the firm told me that Keiser's program is not recognized by the FICPA. I waisted all my money at Keiser and FIU told me my credits are non transferable.
If anyone plans to major in accounting, DONT GO TO KEISER!!!!
I did some checking after spending a year at Keiser. The paralegal program is not approved by the American Bar Association
