"DO NOT ATTEND. PLEASE IF YOU ARE READING THIS... TAKE IT FROM THIS REVIEW AND THE ONES BELOW. This university is there for YOUR MONEY. The teachers, staff, and everyone working for Keiser do not care about you as a student. I studied at Keiser University (Fort Lauderdale) for one semester (finishing pre-reqs) prior to enrolling in the PTA program. I took a total of four classes, passed with all A's. These were classes that could be taken online. I spent approximately 9,500 out of pocket to get into the PTA program the following semester. Let's fast forward to the start of the program. They used COVID as an excuse for EVERYTHING. The class was taught online/hybrid, the teachers were talking bad about the students during CLASS (Padrino & Jelaine James), they had you set up your phones as if you're on FACETIME for testing, the students and teachers were HUGE DISTRACTIONS (telling students when to logout and close their computer screens WHILE testing), teachers were DRAWING ON THEIR ARMS. Let's keep in mind this is a PRIVATE UNIVERSITY AT 10,000 A SEMESTER. Since when are practical application courses not PERFORMED IN THE CLASSROOM?! I was given my first practical exam online and could not visibly identify ridges on bones; therefore, this leads to failing the first exam. I called the teacher and asked to withdraw because of the way the class was being taught. Her response was to retake the test; yet, I would have to remain with the same grade regardless of what I would score on the second test. Due to the weight of the practical exam, this leaves the student with a high chance of failing the course. If I fail the class I would have to pay for the entire semester (10,000). The second option was to withdraw by the withdrawal date, and not owe for an ENTIRE semester of courses. Clearly, this is ABOUT MONEY AND NOT THE SUCCESS OF THEIR STUDENTS. The quality of education is extremely poor. It pains me to write this review and realize TONS of students FROM OTHER PROGRAMS are experiencing the SAME situation. Furthermore, the school is charging me 2,400 for a week of a course that was taught so poorly. The university is holding my transcripts from the semester PRIOR (PAID IN FULL) until the 2,400 is paid in full. NOT TO MENTION THEY GAVE ME AN "F" FOR THE COURSE AFTER WITHDRAWING BEFORE THE WITHDRAW DATE. More than half the class has dropped the program and some of the students are now owing for a full semester (10,000) which the university does NOT tell you while taking courses. So much for being so excited to do a program with KEISER. After you read these reviews I encourage you to trust STUDENT REVIEWS over KEISER employees working as PROFESSIONAL SCAMMERS. Keiser University will TAKE YOUR MONEY, DECREASE YOUR GPA, AND completely through your educational path off track."

"I feel kind of lucky that I had the opportunity to study physical therapy assistant program at Keiser. Couldn't believe I got a job right away butt they run a tight ship and it paid off. The instructors are knowledgeable but also very supportive. It's an intense program but I finished before I even knew it."

"Wow. Where to begin...runaway as fast as you can! This was the worst school I ever attended. You'd think if you are paying top dollar for an education you would be getting what you paid for. Not even close! The school, instructors, everything was a horrible experience. All they want is your money and once you're in, and they have your money, say goodbye to quality education. A joke of a school!"

"Although I have heard good things about Keiser, the physical therapist assistants I have encountered out in the field have been quite cocky and full of themselves. They do not seem too knowledgeable about what they are doing but they have been very nice people. This program is too short and I feel like it does not provide someone with the experience they need to work out in the field.."

"On my personal experience I am on my 5 class and I don't have any problem with the school. The teacjers are great I do not have words to describe how amazing they are but the program is really difficul and tough. And as you go forward it get way more difficult. It is not impossible but not easy neither. You have to study a lot and sometimes you have 2 or 3 tests in a week followed by comps which if you fail the third time they dismiss you from the program that is the only thing that i don't like from Keiser but the rest I think is great"

"My personal experience at Keiser wasn't good at all. The only good memory that I have from here are my classmates and one of the teachers which was very professional and dedicated . But school overall was pretty bad the coordinator for the PTA program make most of the students cry just because she feels like she own the world and also students personal life's . Financial Aid also a big disaster . I don't know how it works for other programs at the school but for the PTA in the first month of class they give you 2 test that not even are suppose to give you, they test you about another topic" Kinesiology" and the first class is Introduction to PTA , the point is that if you don't pass does 2 test with more than 70% they dismiss you from the program . Not recommend this school at least for this program. There are many school which are accredited as them by CAPTE and without the ridiculous policies."

"I see there are a lot of negative reviews! First off, I'd like to mention that Keiser isn't for everyone! You have to have the right mindset with the ability to go at a fast pace. I'm currently in my second month and I have no complaints. The students and instructors are all very personable. Yes, the tuition is high. If it wasn't that high the quality of instructors would be terrible. I'm fine with paying a high price if it means getting a quality education. Some of the books are pricy, but many can be purchased used. I love Keiser!"
