"I have been a student at Keiser University Jacksonville campus for almost a year now. I'm in my mid 30's, so it's been a while since I was in school. I was attracted to Keiser University because they offered 1 class at a time enrollment. My experience so far education wise has been good. The instructors know what they are talking about, the information they teach is current and presented in a way that is easy to understand. The class sizes are small and if you need any help your instructor is only an email away, or you can even talk to them in person. I have not had any issues with instructors. The biggest issue with Keiser University is the standard for admissions is very low. If you're breathing, you can get admitted into Keiser University. This becomes an issue because every class that I've taken requires some form of group activity. One of the requirements for their "Hybrid" classes is online discussion posts. Part of your grade will be replying to another students discussion post. My last class, almost every single post was a copy and paste answer taken from another easily found web site. One post was literally just a link to a web site. And now you are expected to reply to these, and if you don't then points are taken off your grade. You will be in class with a lot of other students that honestly should not be there. They want the degree, but they really don't want to actually put in the work to get it. I'm not saying every student is like this, but it unfortunately makes up the majority. This has been my experience so far, yours may be different. If I was to do it over again I would pick a school that has a little higher standard for acceptance to get in."

"The classes are very fast paced, you have to read sometimes 5 chapters in a week for a class. Luckily, you only take one class at a time, so you can focus on your class for a month. If you are not doing homework every single day, you will have a problem. Most teachers are willing to work with you if you have something that prevents you from doing your homework, but you must have a good excuse. The teachers are willing to look out for you if you do the work and participate. While I loved many of my teachers, there were others that just shouldn't be a teacher anymore. They are clearly burnt out and are not enthused about their subject anymore. Some of my professors acted like they didn't know their topic, and one or two didn't know how to use a camera/microphone! I had to email professors of problems with the material several times over the course of my degree. I had to correct several tests by emailing the professor, and letting them know that the book answer was different than the test. Luckily, they were always willing to fix the grade, and let Keiser know that the tests were wrong. The teachers don't make the tests, which are apparently standard for each class. The worst experience I had was a professor that told us in week 1 that he wasn't our teacher, and we didn't have a "teacher" until week 3 when he was told he WAS our teacher, and needed to teach something. He didn't actually teach the class at all! He canceled every single live chat the entire time I had him. I had this stupid teacher twice, and learned NOTHING from him. The IT classes: The Microsoft Labs are HORRIBLE. They often don't work properly. You also have to use IE not Edge/Chrome/Firefox in order to do them right, and a lot of stuff STILL doesn't work properly. A lot of times, it seemed like we were going over the same class with a different book/teacher. Of course, considering sometimes it was hard to learn the topic in the first class, it was kind of nice to have a repeat however, you had to pay for the same class twice. This school is mainly teaching yourself. If you can't teach yourself, or learn from a book, you might have a problem. Many of the teachers don't really do the live chats like you probably need. Many of them do try very hard to be helpful and make sure their students learn something. However, like any college, some just don't care. Overall, my experience was positive. However, there are times where I feel like I spent two years learning nothing that can help me further my career in the computer field."

"Prior to enrolling the staff at Keiser University lead me to believe that finishing my degree early would ensure me of finding a career in my field of study faster and therefor the added expense would indeed be worth it. Here I am $30000 in debt and because I am on a payment plan with Keiser for the books I put on my account, they will not release my transcripts and I can not obtain a career in my field of expertise. Long story short people. Be warned. Pay half as much elsewhere and WALK at the same time (In June) with Keiser Students who paid twice as much. DO NOT TRUST THE STAFF AND THEIR PROMISES!!!!"

"I am a person that appreciates good tuition, this school does not provide that. Everything they are interested in is in the money from your financial. Just do not enter to the school. It is a hell. There are not enough times I can emphasize this."

"Tell us about your college experience.I am a fast learner. I did well in classes that I had some prior knowledge in. When we moved into subjects that were new to me the pace was much too quick for anyone to have a proper understanding. Nobody can go from zero to CCNA in 30 days. Nobody. Sure, a test may be passed, but it doesn't reflect an understanding of the material. That is Keiser's main flaw.Would you get the same degree if you could start over?I would definitely choose the same degree. I love what I do, and while I wish I had gone to a cheaper school, I do not regret spending the time to learn what I did.What advice can you offer other students?The biggest thing that I wish schools would be more up front about is price. I had to sit and wait and then have a long conversation with an advisor before I found out how much each school would cost. Shopping around should be easier, but since it is not, it is well worth the effort to dig as deep as possible to find out what debts will be incurred. I spent ~$30k at Keiser when I could have spent less than half that at a different school with a better program that is more integrated with the local market."
