Lito - 9/3/2015
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016
"I am in my fourth of a five semester RN-BSN program with the hopes of going to nurse anesthesia school. The courses are one at a time but make no mistake, they can be challenging with all the discussion boards, assignments and research papers that are required. Not to mention you're packing an entire 16 week course into 4. Nevertheless, I would have to say that I'm pleased with the program. Most of the professors are friendly and reasonable and the (nursing) program is both nationally and regionally accredited by the CCNE and SACS. This helps when it comes time to applying to advanced practice programs offered by other major colleges and universities."

"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."

Horrible Professor - 8/27/2015
Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2016
"I have been going to Keiser University for my B.S. in Health Science and now working on my Masters. All my teachers so far have been great. Except for this semester Dr. Patrick Wong. If anyone gets him as a professor please asked to be transfer right away horrible professor, takes days if not a week to answer email you have to email him 3 or 4 times to get any answer out of him. Also all my professors have been great and if you are just a little shy of your grade that you wanted to achieve in the class they are always willing to help you out, but this professor does not care about his students what so ever. I asked if there was anything I could do t raise my grade up a few points and it took him 2 days to answer me NO. What kind of professor is that, that is not willing to help his students out. HORRIBLE please if anyone goes to Keiser Univeristy and gets him please please get out of his class."

"Keiser University is a joke.Some of their Professors are prejudice. I wish the Department of Education would shut it down.They don't provide you with the materials needed to be successful . Starting from the Dean who is rreally prejudice. She just recently received her PhD in 2006. How can you be a Dean with a PHD. the University is crooked and prejudice against certain races.. So done needs to take them to Court."

"Keiser University MBA program was an exceptional program. During my tenure at Keiser University - Tallahassee campus the content of the program of study was relayed to myself in an engaging and informative manner. The instructors delivered the material with clarity and precision. They saw the individual needs of their students and tailored the learning experience to fit each student. I truly believe that my MBA will open numerous opportunities to explore the workforce more. I am now in a distinctive caliber of individuals who have taken education to another level. The experience has been rewarding and truly one that I will never forget. The fostering of relationships I have built with students and instructors has enhanced my personal and professional experiences to see things in a broader, yet descriptive and informative view. I'm now in a profound position to venture into the unknown territories of an entrepreneur with precision . Thank you Keiser!!"

Graduation Year: 2016
"WARNING program is not JCERT accredited! This puts you at a huge disadvantage in a highly competitive job market. Also the program director is under qualified and makes things overly difficult. She does not even have a graduate level education and is very new to the job. She'll assign reading each week (100 pages plus) and test on it each Friday, without ever touching on most of the material that ends up in the test. Shop around... you can do better."

"Over all, Great Experience. This school is not for everyone. The Gen eds are accelerated so you learn a normal semester in 4 weeks. I loved it because I hate school and was able to finish quickly and I maintained a 4.0 in Gen Eds. The actual nursing program was different. 4 month long semesters instead of 4 weeks and pretty tough but i was still able tough maintain As & Bs for final grades. Our class had it rough - new instructors, unfocused instructors, instructors leaving - in the middle of the semesters. A lot of our clinical time was cut and we were left without preceptors in the last semester and given some lame excuse as to why. Also, this is a private school, not public, which makes it much more expensive. I had the GI Bill so I didn't have to worry about that. One thing that was great was that they make your schedule, no waiting in line for classes that may be full. Another thing was that they handled all the financial stuff and submitted everything for me. One piece of advice, buy your books on line and ask the class ahead of you what they used. You don't use about half the books on the list each semester. Huge waste of money. VA book stipend doesn't cover it."

"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 started off in the PTA program in May of 2014. The program itself is 11months long and accelerated. I was dismissed during Kinesiology on my first attempt in this program. I had 48 muscles to learn within one week of the upper extremity. I didn't think of it being a scam at that particular moment. I did the re-entry process and had 3 months to wait to re-enter the program in March 2015. I got done with the re-entry processing before Thanksgiving of 2014 and would be restarting the program in March of 2015. I had more time to go over the muscles and the OIA and Ns of each muscle that I knew would be coming up for comps. To make a long story short I was successful in Kinesiology and progressed all the way to Modalities. The whole time I maintained a 3.19 GPA. I felt I was actually going to complete this program. Unfortunately, the school hired on a new instructor because they lost a previous instructor and took nearly a year to fill that position. This instructor had no control over her class. A very unorganized instructor that was easily flustered when you would ask questions. When time came for learning ultrasound modalities, we were not able to touch the equipment until the day just before a lab competency. I hardly think 6 hours is hardly a sufficient amount of time to prepare for a lab competency. I ended up failing the comp on my third try which has now permanently dismissed me from the program. Then the program director emails me the following day to come speak to the Dean about my educational options. I am not so sure about re-starting a new major in an allied health program at this university . I have read most of the reviews on this site and see the word SCAM pop up for this particular university in most all A.S programs. The Dean seems to want to push me just into another program. I have got my transcripts and looking at other options. Just really discouraging to know that a person with a B average is put out of the program and students in the 70% range are allowed to continue on. Now I'm stuck with 8 months of education and not able to do anything with it , along to facing close to $20k in debt with np degree. I think I better look into other PTA programs at a state college before ever returning to Keiser"

Keiser University - 5/30/2015
Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015
"My personal experience at Keiser wasn't good at all. The only good memory that I have from here are my classmates and one of the teachers which was very professional and dedicated . But school overall was pretty bad the coordinator for the PTA program make most of the students cry just because she feels like she own the world and also students personal life's . Financial Aid also a big disaster . I don't know how it works for other programs at the school but for the PTA in the first month of class they give you 2 test that not even are suppose to give you, they test you about another topic" Kinesiology" and the first class is Introduction to PTA , the point is that if you don't pass does 2 test with more than 70% they dismiss you from the program . Not recommend this school at least for this program. There are many school which are accredited as them by CAPTE and without the ridiculous policies."
