Keiser University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (212)
My son had several transfer credits from a community college before entering the College of Golf. They accepted his credits so he didn't have to retake the courses, but still charged the same amount for tuition. We questioned this, but they just gave the mumbo jumbo about how they charge per semester not be credit hours. My son graduated, is working as an Assistant Pro for $12.00 per hour. Still has to pay for Apprentice programs through PGA website to be able to advance further and has $500+ worth of student loans. This college is all about the maximum amount of reimbursement they can get from the government loan programs, you take courses that give you no advantage if you want to be a PGA professional. You can do that online on your own time for a fraction of the cost. I am currently working with an Attorney to sue the school for false advertising and taking advantage of students that are looking for something different than a four year University program. Do not go here unless you get grants and don't mind dropping $40,000 to make $10 to $12.00 per hour once graduated.
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.
Why does it seem that almost everyone who wrote a bad review about Keiser displays some of the worst grammar I've ever seen?! No wonder these people are angry- they most likely weren't doing well, and expected to get a good grade anyway as if this was Broward Community College. Yes, it's more expensive than BCC, but the teachers, administration, and financial aid personnel were wonderful, dedicated, and extremely knowledgeable. In fact, my financial aid adviser showed me how to apply to receive more funds for school, so I barely had to pay any tuition at all. On the contrary, after attending Broward College for one semester last year, I found it to be extremely disorganized, incompetent, and uncaring, starting from my academic adviser all the way to administration and professors. If you want quality, you have to find a way to pay for it, and Keiser turned my whole viewpoint around after such a bad experience at BCC. Further, Keiser allowed me to transfer all my BCC classes as well as the credits I'd earned when I lived in New York, so I didn't lose any hard-earned credits. College isn't for everyone, but if you're really motivated to succeed, Keiser is one of the best colleges you can hope to attend in South Florida.!!!! Here's to working hard, instead of being 'passed along.'
I say this in all sincerity to anyone interested in their future goals, stay away from this school. My PCP warned me not to attend Kieser PA Program from past lawsuits with this school regarding scamming students financially, however it was the only school available with a 10 yr expiration date on credits. Having graduated so long ago, it would aid in not having to retake any past classes. To my surprise despite already having 2 B.S and meeting all pre-reqs , I was recommended to retake a few classes that I've already taken to boost my portfolio. I did hesitate on the idea since my degrees gained me admittance to a Med school in the past, but after further researching decided becoming a PA would be best fitting for variations/change in medicine vs having to specialize in 1 disciplines forever. I emphasized the need for an evening class to accommodate work and was ensured it would be avail. After registering for 3 classes, the financial aid advisor suggested in her honest opinion not to retake ANY class I passed already b/c Kieser prriority is making money not what's best for me. So I decided to only keep 1 (as a refresher) of the 3 courses, withdrew from one, and didn't take the 3rd since the was told the week of class by the advisor evening wasn't avail and was misinformed. I contacted the school to pay cash for the 1 class and was told I owe $7000 for all 3 classes. To add fire cannot apply to their program scheduled to start next year w/out a full payment for transcripts. Literally can not even apply to any other PA US program since omitting ANY school transcript (i.e.: Kieser) in an application will be deemed as automatic void for falsification (failure to report). I feel like I'm living a NIGHTMARE after spending 2yrs racking up qualifying healthcare hours to even make it to the point to apply to any schools. I was stubborn, as I'm not the type to determine my capabilities off of others failures. DO NOT FALL for the pretty picture they will paint, use my situation as a blessing in disguise and go elsewhere.
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
Keiser is professional from the entrance door, throughout the offices, in the classroom, and into clinical sites. I was honored to get to know the faculty while they helped guide my major choice and successful completion. The support and open communication of this institute in without compare.
Keiser University Clearwater Campus Masters program education is excellent, responsive to students is unheard of at Keiser University. Workforce duty does everything conceivable to enable you to succeed. When I mean commitment, The President sends me an email in 2015, removed time from her bustling calendar, I knew Keiser was the correct decision for me. Those emails showed me President C. was commitment to my academic excellent. Another case is Dean , I call one day pose an inquiry about classes and she stop what she doing and answer my inquiry and ensured I was straight. I get back to Dean S., 3 or after 4 months later, I made proper acquaintance, first thing Dean S. said is I recollect you, entirely noteworthy with every one of the general population she converses with and help demonstrate to me an astounding side of Keiser University. Each teacher I've had has been energetic about their subjects, and I've gained such a great amount from every one of them. Nature of materials is fantastic. Understudy benefit bolster is fantastic from the time I began in 2015 till the day I graduated in 2017. Also, since I graduated Keiser University staff is still supporting me. If you put forth a concentrated effort to your examinations and the material gave, you will be an advantage any place you choose to go. Earnestly understudy who comprehends responsibility.

Do not attend keiser it is a big trap, the financial department and collection agencies love students that are in need of an education. I enrolled for a bachelors and when I tried to change my major to down to associates to graduate early because of career implications,wow, the obstacles and financial burdens where catastrophic, of course that didn't stop them from collecting even on classes i never took. Their system is setup to hurt you, if they don't get what they want and thats as much money as possible from you "the student in need an education". After a year of trying to settle my issues and complaints still nothing what a waste of time and energy please save yourself the headache it is not worth it. I will be making a youtube video, reporting to news outlets and letting everyone now that they Keiser does not want to help they are all professional scammers.
Great school, fantastic professors. Everyone is helpful! On campus and online student. I was always able to get help from professors whenever I needed it. I had attended another college previously and wasn't able to graduate, Keiser took almost all of my credits.
DO NOT ATTEND THIS SCHOOL/NURSING PROGRAM, please! The instructor turnover rate should be a good indication as to how awful this program is run, and what a bully the Program Director is. ONE of my instructors actually taught, the others just read off of power points. The workload is so much that you aren't able to understand and retain information long term. ATI is God. You're given books, and told to read them, nothing else. Clinicals are ALWAYS getting canceled for one reason or another. This program does not allow students to learn and feel confident in their abilities. The lab is a JOKE. All of the mannequins are broke, no supplies, no organization. Choose another school, do your research! This school is WAY too expensive for the low quality education you will receive.
