Keiser University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (217)
The Radiologic Technology Program at Keiser University is excellent! It is rigorous and and it allowed us to challenged in ways that nurtured critical thinking, problem solving, and technical competence. While the faculty was very nice and accessible to every student, they did not diminish the standards of the profession at any time. I always thought it was unfair of my fellow classmates to say they "earned" their As and Bs, but were "given their Cs and Ds. To the student who spoke about their radiography program... if you had wanted a C then you should have given another 2 tenths of a percentage points of effort to get your C. Which, by the way, is the minimum to continue in the program....not the goal! Also, there is another hint about the lameness of the student wrote about the RT program. That student did not even use the correct terminology for the profession...something that is learned in the first week of the first class of the program. The RT student studies to become a radiologic technologist NOT a radiologic technician.... Idiot! No wonder you failed!
I hesitate whether or not to recommend the school based on price alone. 10 yrs. later I think I have a better perspective on my education. There was no social element to the experience at all (which was fine with me as an older student going back to school for a second degree). The focus is on the education. The class-rm education; the instruction itself, was excellent. I was well prepared to pass the boards upon graduation. I'm not as gung-ho on the clinical experience...What I could do, in clinicals, was restricted to things that we had already gone over in class and while that may sound reasonable it kept me a little behind students from the other schools in the practical skills area. I cought up. I was employed right away and am still working full time in radiology at a hospital. My main negative is the cost...I am still paying off student loans 10yrs later. Other schools graduate tech's as qualified as I and for a fraction of the cost...If I had to do it over, I would have gone to a public school. It would have taken me a little longer and I may not have scored as high on the registry but it would have been a better choice financially.
Keiser is a good school. In order to succeed at this school you have to be focused and be ready for a fast paced learning environment. You have to study daily to make sure that you are retaining the information.At this school you are incharge of your own success. You have to have a positive mind set and remove all distractions. The OTA program will have you working and starting your career in no time. You have to be ready to take school seriously and make your education a top priority!
I've read Keiser reviews on a variety of sites & I've come to the conclusion that bad reviews outweigh the number of good reviews bcz unhappy people take further measures to express their self proclaimed injustices. I've been a student at Bethune-Cookman University, Florida State College at Jacksonville and now Keiser University. As a BCU Student I averaged "B-C" until my grades eventually dwindled to "D's & F's". As a FSCJ student I finished my first semester off with all "F's". Initially I blamed the professors, I used stress and work and my 1 year old as an excuse for my failures. It was when I was laid off from my job when I realized, as long as I keep working, all I'll have is a job. I saw a Keiser commercial and I called. An admissions counselor scheduled me to come in, I took a timed test. I didn't score high enough for the degree I sought. I came back the next day and took the text again and achieved the score If I remember correctly, the minimum score for paralegals is 17. I started class that following week. One class per 4 wks on Monday, Tuesday & Thursday from 9-1. Come on now! Most ppl start their day by noon. By the time the world is having lunch, you'll be done with class! I haven't made anything less than an "A" since I've been enrolled.I'm currently taking my 5th class, family law. & yes it's true, YOU HAVE TO STUDY! So study! Anyone that has been to a college that requires you take a minimum of 12 credits to be considered fulltime will appreciate one class at a time for 4 wks! Ugh at Cookman the semester was 4 long months. For each class I have the mind set of "let's get this over with" I study, I do and that's the difference between then and now. Before,I thought anything more than the bare minimum was too much. Psssh!! KEISER IS A GREAT SCHOOL. KEISER GROOMS THEIR WELL EDUCATED GRADUATES FOR CAREERS IN TODAYS COMPETITIVE CAREER POOLS. IF YOU WANT A FLY BY NIGHT DEGREE GO ON ELSEWHERE OTHERWISE GET TO THE KEISER LOCATION NEAR. CHOOSE A DEGREE PROGRAM THAT YOU LOVE! & you'll never see studying the same. Everytime I open my law book, I'm excited about what I can learn next. Good luck:))!
Do not go to this school. As soon as you arrive. Must take a test and reach a certain number. All programs are different numbers. All classes are a month long. I needed two classes. Omg was it hard. You have to learn five chapters in a week. Then your professor makes you learn all five chapters..picks out 50 questions for test. Which are so in depth. Barley any hands on work. Your grade in class comes from 90% of tests. Lectures the whole 4 hours. Then if you reach a grade of "c" you have to see how your other grades are. Must keep a 3.0 or take other classes over. If you decide to take it over. Your program gets moved back if your close to program. Program is the same. One class at time. When you graduate. They do not get you a job. They show you how to look for hiring jobs.
Please re consider the nursing program at Keiser!!!! I attended this school and I regret every bit of it. When I was enrolled in the nursing program, about 4 teachers quit and also the dean of nursing!!! It was sooo diffi ult with all tbe sork they give, its impossible to retain any information! The professors gossip about students to other students, they lack teachjng skills. I can honestly say professor berrick was the only knowledgeable one there. They push certain people through. Especially the ass kissers. I ended up leaving and im now attending miami-dade. Please think twice!! Be weary of a school that has 3 start dates cor the nursing program! I am so happy that I left the school. attending Miami Dade made me realize how horrible Kaiser is.the equipment is outdated financial aid doesn't know anything and it's overpriced. Please think twice! (Sorry for the grammical and spelling errors...)
I recently graduated with my Bachelor degree from Keiser in Tampa. The staff was great and very helpful. They found me scholarships I didn't know about and they were there when I had problems that needed addressing. I work full time and attend school full time. The campus is open late and advisors are always available when needed. I enjoyed my experience so much I have now returned to get my masters degree. The new campus is beautiful. I would highly recommend this school.
I am blown away by some of the reviews on here. I have been going to Keiser University for over 2 years and I have had a great experience. The small class sizes, only having to take one class at a time, individualized attention,knowledgeable teachers, etc... are just some of the great features of this school. I have made many lifelong friends, including some of the professors. This school has given me the gift of knowledge, confidence, independence, the ability to go above and beyond what is expected of me, etc... Anyone who is giving a negative review apparently is not cut out for the regimen of Keiser. Classes are taken much faster than other schools. You can't just ride this degree. You have to study, work hard, and be committed. I am double majored in both business and in legal studies, with the hope of going to law school to become a lawyer. I work very hard to maintain my nearly perfect GPA. A Keiser student is expected to study hard and to do everything in his or her power to EARN the degree that person chose. Nobody else is going to do it for you. These people blaming the school for their inadequacies are not Keiser material, but people who are expecting to be rewarded for work they obviously cannot do. I urge anyone to not hesitate to go here. Yes, it is expensive. But it is well worth it, if you can honestly commit yourself to it. So anyone who is hesitant about this school, don't be. It is a great school with the same accreditation of USF, PCC, and all of the other big colleges here in Florida. I also have several friends here that are in the nursing program. It is top notch and yes, they have to work hard to maintain their grades as well. Many of them already have good jobs because of Keiser. I urge anyone thinking about going to Keiser to give our campus a look, maybe speak with some of the other students or professors.
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.
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.
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.
Keiser online was a perfect fit for me being pregnant and needing to finish my degree soon. Being pregnant and horrible morning sickness I couldn't go to a on campus college. Plus 4 weeks of school rather than 8-10 is awesome!
No I would not chose the same degree only because now they offer the interdisciplinary studies (2 bachleors for the price of one!) I'm currently enrolled back into Keiser University and enjoying every step of it.
Take it seriously don't slack off and if you need help don't be afraid to call your teachers. Your education is the only thing that will get you by in life. DON'T WASTE IT!
