"The Tallahassee Campus is great! Every teacher is very helpful and financial aid does their jobs very well. This review is mainly about the main campus and stipend request!! I'm a GI Bill student and decided to take out student loans to help with finances. The main campus denies me multiple times and then decides to take money from my account and give me hardly any money. So if you are a Vet like me, don't be surprised if they take money from you as well!! I'm getting ready to transfer!"

"This school is a joke, the faculty are not qualified to teach. I am only posting this to deter young students to save your money and time. I have read a lot of the negative posts here and they are true, you will see for yourself if you attend this "University" pff, again a joke!!"

Keiser Grad - 1/29/2018
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2015
"As a Keiser graduate, I can give a little insight to help someone make a decision. The tuition is OUTRAGEOUS so unless you are wanting to go in a limited access program like Nursing, OTA, PTA, etc; I would not recommend them. You can get the same quality of education for much cheaper elsewhere. However, I can say that after completing my AA degree, I transferred to a public state university and all of my courses transferred. I did have to pick up some additional courses: 2 Spanish, a biology lab, a health and wellness course, and 2 humanity courses. I am in Florida so I assume each state would vary. I probably would not attend here for my bachelors due to the negative view of Keiser within academia and the fact that employers do weigh the reputation of your degree granting institution at the bachelor level. Overall though, I did not have a bad experience. I was NOT constantly pulled from class, I didn't have any issues with my financial aid, I wasn't kicked out of any courses; it was a smooth ride for me."

"I am currently in college right getting my MS in Criminal Justice classes are easy, but it is a waste of time 100% because what job am I going to have I am dropping out of a MS program to get my real estate license. Really??!! I'm in big time debt it's up to $50,000 Stay away from here"

"I really wish I had not came to the school. All I do is pay money and pay more money and pay even more money for things that I don't even know about. It seems like all this school is interested in is taking money. Did you know that the school get sued just about every year because of how much money they take from students? Anyways moving on from the money issue, the financial aid people are not ready. When I'm on campus no one says anything to me about financial aid or anything but as soon as I leave campus they should do with all these emails expect me to do all these things that they could've asked me to do when I was there. They are unprofessional, not ready, and I really don't think the school as a whole is ready for students."

Keiser graduate - 12/9/2015
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2015
"I'd like to say all the negative comments are totally false about the school, I just finished 11/19/15 from Keiser university with a AA in criminal justice and I loved every bit of my experience while at the school. I will say the only complaint I've heard my two years there was mostly the cost of classes, but really what school doesn't cost when you're furthering your education. I will be happily attending my bachelors there and look forward to the 2016-17 year plus my graduation walk in the process. If you're looking for a good school go with Keiser the classes are excelled and you meet a lot of great professors that are more than willing to be a reference for later use on the job application. So with that said go eagles!!! I'm proud of that statement,you'd be too if you stick to and commit to your plan it's all worth it in the end."

"I was excited after researching this school online, when I filled out a contact form as soon as I pressed send my phone started blowing up. 3 to 4 times a day I received a call from 813-402-0423. Every time this number called they never left a voice mail, after a week of this I finally called the number back and it told me to wait for a representative, still not saying what company it was, and then after 12 rings I was connected and found out it was Keiser. Unprofessional for a college to conduct business like this. What happened to an admissions counselor contacting you from the campus you were interested in and not some random telemarketer blowing up your phone? Well this was enough to make me want to go with another school"

"I would not waste my money on Keiser. It is extremely expensive and you end up having to teach yourself due to the lack of good and professional professors. My time at that school was miserable and I even had a professor that was so unprofessional and terrible that it made me almost want to quit college because of her. This is not a good school. Yeah you will get a degree but that's about it. On top of leaving with an extreme amount of debt, you leave and don't even get contacted for job opportunities "as promised" in their scheme to get people to apply. As my first college experience I will definitely say that this is the worst school ever. Think twice before you give them your time and your money."

"I've seen so many reviews about Keiser University. Majority of it makes me wonder. Anyway, I'm actually attending the Tampa campus and have been with Keiser for almost a year and I do like it. I'm majoring in csi technology and hoping to go for the bachelor's in forensic science. My professor is very helpful and patient with the students in our class. He definitely has the credentials for teaching our class. When I first talked to the admission counselor she was really helpful and she would talk to me as if I was her best friend. We clicked just like that and I still keep in touch with her whenever I have questions or when I need help with something. Financial aid is also helpful. I stop in to see my fin aid adviser whenever I get the chance so that he's on top of my documents. Obviously you can't just ignore the staff, you have to remind them that you're there and make sure they're doing what you need them to do. If you dont' check up on your status there's going to be mistakes. They are human. I even went to pre registration and they told me that I'm graduating and that I should attend the ceremony. I was skeptical about it at first but I've done my research and Keiser is an accredited school by the Board of Education. You should check it out if you think they aren't. Their medical programs are the most popular. They even offer to help you find a job after you graduate. Of course it's not guaranteed because they're not miracle workers. You have to go out there and do it yourself. These people with these negative comments obviously want things handed to them. The class times work with my work schedule as well. I never though I was able to work full time and also be a full time student. It's amazing. I only go to class Tuesdays and Thursdays 9am - 1pm. The rest of the days I'm either working or off. Their work load depends on the class you're taking too. If you're taking bio for that month obviously there's going to be a lot of information to be taking in. Studying is key to success. You honestly think just going to class and taking tests and just barely passing the tests will help? Even big brand universities don't allow that. You have to study your ass off. The hybrid courses are pretty cool. You pace yourself with online homework when it's given. My professor communicates with us effectively and it's never been an issue with me. I actually transferred from University of South Florida and all of my credits were accepted. I only had to take two gen ed classes before I went into my core classes. I'm extremely excited to go into the bachelor's program. I'm definitely not part of the Keiser staff or anything like that. I'm a real student looking to achieve my dreams. What surprises me also is the amount of students that are there regardless of the negative comments. My class used to only have 6 students, now there's almost 20. I can imagine the popular majors like nursing and radiology. They probably have like 30 students in each class. Anyway if you choose Keiser good for you."
