Keiser University Reviews - Bachelor's in Legal Studies
As someone who is active duty military and doing pure online classes through K.U. for over a year now, I haven't had any issues with the school. They've been extremely helpful and supportive through my odd situation. Even had two situations where I had no internet on deployment and was not able to log on my blackboard account, but was able to communicate with my professors through email to send him all due assignments for the week. Yes, it is expensive. As is any university. Was hard work but now only one semester away from my Associates, and immediately continuing for my Bachelors. It is what you make of it fellas.
I am an undergrad alum of Keiser and am currently matriculating at an ABA accredited law school. I think it can be reasonably concluded that if Keiser University were (as alleged) an inept, money hungry, degree mill (I love the "you are buying a degree" comment), I would not likely be a semester away from obtaining a Juris Doctor. For prospective students, please do your research and seek advice from reliable sources. Do not be swayed and misled by the disgruntled opinions of bitter (ex) students.
Today I was given a "Do Not Admit Slip" by financial aid. I go to handle the situation & I was told that I'm FORBIDDEN to be in class til I do so. Mind you, I pay $50/month just to attend there. & as far as classes go, don't bother wasting your money cause we barely use the textbooks anyway cause it's a month by month institution. There are good resources we use in class to help you in the legal field but hardly any good material is spoken about in class. Mainly gossip about irrelevant things or perhaps maybe what we saw on the news & even then it's only the "favorites" that matter. At one point I'd say some of the staff are prejudice, especially financial aid (they know your money situation to the core) & one dean in particular that is old & aggy. Overall this university is something at one point I was proud to attend but now all they make me feel is to drop out or transfer my credits somewhere else ... Not PSC, they are horrible too! But not as bad as Keiser. Point is, don't waste your time nor gas to go to a place like this .. it was called Keiser Career College to begin with & that's what it should've remained with their high school ways (even now accepting duel enrollment cause nobody wants to go there & they are STRUGGLING to keep their accreditation, I see why). Jobs are promised, doesn't happen... they'll help you write out yoir resume but that's about it. I'm SICK of this college taking advantage of their students .. I would call the department of education but it's not like they listen to us students anymore. Now on a Positive note, to anyone looking to further their future with college .. good for you! I hope you find the right college for you, maybe it's Keiser .. just don't say I didn't warn you based off of my own personal experiences.
I can say that I have the benefit of comparing a state college to a private university. I will never go back to a state college or university again. I have enjoyed my time at Keiser University, the instructors go above and beyond to help students in my opinion. As far as the monthly fee, that is explained upfront before enrolling and that is something that you agree to do, so when they want their money, yes, they want their money. Plus, the office is willing to work with you. At least at my campus they do. Talking to the Dean's is easy as they have an open door policy. Any problems I had were resolved immediately. In a state college I had a meeting with the Dean and ended up speaking with their administrative assistant and it took forever to get anything resolved (political red tape). So for me going back to school and getting another degree, I made the right choice by going to Keiser. Sure, it is expensive, but well worth it. Plus, it is not any educational institutions job to find you a job. They all tell you that up front. No college guarantees that.
I am a new student to the legal studies BA program at Keiser. After reading all of these negative reviews about the school, I had to write one of my own. Clearly the students giving this school a bad review are the illiterate ones who cannot even help themselves. So far, my experience at Keiser has been truly exceptional. Nobody, even the financial aid office, has come off as rude or unhelpful. Everyone has been very helpful thus far. I have two friends who graduated in two different fields from Keiser(Physical Therapy, Criminal Justice) and they are doing great with their careers. The negative reviews previously stated here, I can't take them seriously, The grammar alone makes me want to stop reading. As for the petty complaints about how front end personnel is rude, maybe if you approach them in a professional manner, dressed as a Keiser student(suit &tie) with a smile on your face, you wouldn't have that problem. Everyone that I interact with at Keiser has been very nice to me, probably because I say "Hello, how are you?" Some people need to learn to treat others the way they want to be treated. Thank you Keiser for your professionalism and I look forward to completing my Bachelor's with you.
