Keiser University eCampus Reviews
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
This program is a rip-off. Faculty never help you and the department chairman could care less if you pass or fail.
Keiser is all about the money. I will be going to FAU for a real college degree.
I have to laugh reading some of these reviews. Hello, you have to pay to go to college. It isn't just handed to you, plus you actually have to attend and put in the effort. Some people aren't satisfied with the pell grant, no they expect a free ride. This is a school for people who never went to a regular dorm right out of high school straight to a University on a scholarship.
It has an extremely flexible schedule, good professors, convenient for people who also work a full time job. I previously worked for an online University (started with a K, no need to name bash) and it wasnt a bad school but way overpriced! I didnt even like working there because I didnt even believe a bachelors program would cost 66,000.
I attended University of Phoenix and absolutely hated it. I love school but the programs are pathetic. All you do is write stupid papers in APA format about crap that has nothing to do with your degree major, on top of that, everything is based on TEAMWORK and TEAM ASSIGNMENTS.
So basically you pay for a degree that is dependent on what you do AND what someone else does. What if you get someone who does nothing and slacks and you get a bad grade? Too bad, you have to pick up the slack.
It was the most pathetic school I have ever been too. Keiser has great admissions advisors, price is great, it is regionally accredited and for the people who think that is not fully accredited, IT IS! I have been working in admissions for over 2 years now and I have to admit Keiser is a great school and I am happy to say I am a student there.
I also work for Fortis College which is an online college focusing mainly on medical coding and billing and medical assisting degrees and it is a great school as well. Not only do we give laptops and ipods to our students (to download your lectures which i think was definitely a fabulous idea and very convenient) it is based upon full customer service and really building a rapport with your students, not just some admissions advisor who talks to you for 10 min, wants you to sign up, and then leaves you to figure the rest out on your own.
I make sure I help my students every step of the way, i follow up every term, and I still talk to my students. I have to say that Keiser is a great college and I would recommeded it or the college I work at (Fortis which is located in orlando, fl off Lee rd) without a shadow of a doubt.
Education is very important to me, as well as a good experience with admissions, enrollment process, easy to follow professors and/or online forums, and also the rapport you build with the staff. And also a good financial aid office who will help you get the best deal to help you in whatever your current personal financial situation.
