Do not sign up for diagnostic medical sonography! First off yes its a great career but thats if you actually get a job. The market is way oversaturated but they of course wont tell you that when you sign up. I am registered and have been out of school 6 months and havent even gotten an interview. Oh and the financial aid dept is the worst I mean worst non functioning dept ever. They wont even give my dipolma because I have a balance because they " forgot to send my pell grant" and then had the unprofessional nerve to say "its our bad". Btw they still havent sorted out the situation Im a VA student way to serve the veterans!
I received an AS degree in Sports Medicine and Fitness Technology in Nov 2013. I still can't find work after applying for 20+ jobs in my related field. I could have saved $36,000 and got a certified personal training certificate, because that is all this degree allows you to get! I am forced to continue my education and get a BS in order to find a descent job. The school should also give you along with this degree a certificate for personal training. I did not want to be a trainer.
Keiser was an excellent choice for me! Yes it was expensive but what school isn't? A community college where you have to wait years to get into the program? Good luck with that! I loved my teachers and my class was small so everyone that I graduated with we are still in contact. The school was clean, the curriculum was easy to follow. I passed my registry the day after graduation!
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!
It a rush to get you in but no rush to help you whenever you have questions that are unanswered make a visit sign some papers you can start school in less than two weeks they care 0 about student actually making it all they care about is money admission counselor Rena seals is a big fat liar !!!!!! Don't trust anything these people tell will elaborate more on what occurred once I am done with this semester & they can mess me up in any way not too sure if they view these reviews....
There are a lot of bad reviews on here for Keiser, but I personally find it to be a great school. I have not had one problem with any of the staff. In fact they have been more helpful than I could ever imagine. They're always willing to work with you no matter what you have going on. I am currently in my 3rd month of the RT program and I'm loving it. The professors are extremely knowledgeable and understanding of home situations and 8/10 students find jobs after getting their licenses. Yes it is expensive, but well worth it in my opinion.
After graduating, I was called back for two second interviews, and both cancelled after telling me they don't hire people with online degrees. I feel like I have wasted my money and time. I was told the online online degrees worth anything are from major universities.
I have went to Valencia College to get most of my AS degree finished and then went on to Kieser Orlando campus to finish up the last 3 classes of that AS degree.The instructors will help you out and want you to succeed. My A&P 2 Professor Dr. Boer is the best professor I have had out of all of them. Then I swithched over to the Lakeland campus to start the PTA program because they dont offer it in Orlando. Once you get into the core classes you need to be ready to commite your time to the program. It is fast paced, and your first class they have a test called a one and done, you either pass or fail. no excuses. The information is not all that difficult to retain in the fast pace but you cannot fall under a C grade or get less than a 70% on any test. Thats what happened to me on one of my final tests and it was because I got distracted with work. Now I am waiting to get back in rotation for the next semester. There is no mysteries or people trying to mislead you. Your just not going to skate through though, it is the same classes you will take at non-private colleges but fast paced. I wish it was cheaper though, it is 3 times the price of regular college. Valencia college 5,000 for a 2 year AS, and then another 3,000 for your R.N. degree. Keiser will cost you 35,000 for the same degree. Up to you. I am already locked in to Keiser. Good Luck!
I graduated at Keiser with an AS in Radiology Technology. I passed my Rad Tech board and in addition I received my state certification. Before Keiser I already had my BS in Healthcare Management. I like the fact they provide one class at a time and it was not easy. I was studying everyday of the week and it was too tiring. Keiser drills you until you know the material. Keiser is not for everyone; and to be honest, I no longer want to pursue a job in this field. The one thing I have to complain about is one instructor. Mrs. K played favoritism and it showed; a few of us in class received a lower grade than a few of our classmates knowing the fact that we had higher test scores than the other! We brought it to her attention, but she just ignored it. Mrs. K is lucky she even has a teaching career, she needs to be fired from Keiser.
The staff are great and very helpful. The classes are smaller so you can have individual attention from the instructor which helps you succeed in the program study your in.
