Keiser University eCampus Reviews
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.
I sign up for Medical Assistant Program and I was placed on the wrong program. They said I could not change mayor in the middle of the semester, even when it was their mistake. They transfer me to online as my ONLY option. I told them I can not take lab. classes online. Did not care. I lost time and money. I am an A student and I can tell you it is a waste of time and your hard earned money. They try to keep you as long as they can to milk as much of your money as they can.
I went and signed up for the fire science degree program... It was just $200 to apply and hold your seat in the class with an unknown amount until they hit you with an estimate of $7500 per semester on my second week!!! I refused to pay and withdrew from class immediately. As bad as that was, it got worse. They said I still had to pay 20% of the tuition for going to class just 2 dam weeks! If I don't pay they report it to the credit bureu. This was the biggest scam I have ever witnessed and heard of. Do not even think of this place for education unless you are a millionaire.
