Keiser University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (210)
If you are considering earning your A.S. degree in Medical Assisting, Please check out your community college. Keiser's tuition is ridiculously high. I chose to attend online classes with Keiser so that I could care for an ill family member.
I found the classes challenging and graduated with a 3.8 GPA however, if I had to do it all over again, I would have "done my homework" Taking all of the classes online was a mistake. Keiser does not have the best reputation in the medical community and when you disclose that you have done most all classes online with the exception of Preceptorship and Externship, employers shy away from e-learning.
I think that if you have a business degree or something to that nature it is viewed very differently. However, when it comes to the medical field, you are much better served in a classroom setting. I now owe a ton of money and still have not found a job. Do yourself a favor and attend your local community college. If you are in Florida, doing so will automatically allow you to attend the state university of your choosing. GO GATORS!
I am attending my first semester o and as far as I can tell, everyone in the group is disappointed. This semester we are taking two classes-Pharmacology and Nursing Fundamentals.
Pharm is hard, but the teacher is top-notch. She knows how to teach and everyone likes her. Even though it's a lot of material, she makes it achievable. Fundamentals, on the other hand, is a complete disaster. The two teachers don't know anything about teaching. They don't emphasis what's important, the tests are impossible to pass. Each chapter is long, and you are expected to be able to know every tiny detail. I am convinced that the teachers would not be able to pass this class if the shoe was on the other foot.The main problem is that the program is very condensed. Without good teaching and adjustments to the program it almost impossible to do well. Do yourself a favor, find a longer program. There must be many cheaper programs out there.
Has anyone complete the DMS Associate degress program, located in Fort Lauderdale? lease give me some feed bck on that campus. please disregard comments on my review,there was no way to by pass allth questions to get mypost up. Thank you
I called to get some information about Keiser University because I had a feeling that they were just like the other rip off schools I contacted and researched. The advisor I spoke with must have thought that I was boo boo the fool.
I asked about financial aid and he said that I can only speak with a financial aid advisor if I'm a current student and I know for a fact that he was lying and the school was a rip off. I went to Valdosta State University and you can speak with anyone from any department at anytime.
I asked him how much the application fee is and he told me $200 like I was a dang fool and didn't know any better than to pay that kind of money for an application fee when other schools ask for much much less. ($35) He kept trying to tell me that they were just like any other school, but I let him know exactly what their process was and he responded "oh you have done some research."
If you are interested in going to this school become uninterested really fast because they are going to rip you off in the biggest way possible. Please research before making a huge mistake. Happy school hunting!
Both of these campuses are not professional. They don't care about the students, they just want the money. When you get in your Cor classes the Professors don't care to help you, they just give you work to do and expect you to teach it on your own at home.
They should clean the schools up, and update it and make it look like a university,and the desk are horrible for the students. The reputation in this school is not good at all. I don't recommend this school to no one.
I would not push this school on anyone. Ive watched teachers pass students adjust grades to help them along. Teachers sitting in the rt lab on there phones texting. there are a few good teachers that were GREAT!!! Unfort, they don't teach the entire program...west palm beach campus is dis-organized and they dont care... They honeslty dont seem to care.
There gen eds are different from campus to campus.. go figure................ good luck if you go.
I want to comment on that slacker of a student who fail out of Cardiovascular Physiology. It shows how ignorant this person is! You should be sooo grateful to be taught at a Medical student level!
Especially at Keiser! If you did NOT put in the time and effort! Yes! you will NOT pass! You are one of that crew that failed out of that class! How is it that we have made it threw? 7 out 8! we stuck together, study together day and NIGHT and weekends!
This particular teacher has made it his business for us to stand out in the Respiratory Therapy industry by teaching us more and pushing us to the limit you imbecile! You could not handle it, maybe you should get out of the waiting list to start again and reconsider something like a Nail Tech!
I would not recommend this school to know one. I took the Medical Assistant as an online student. I finished all the classes paid all my fees. They sent me an email telling me to call the three departments to make sure that I was clear for graduation and I did. Each department told me I was clear.
I called again on the Monday after my last class to make sure I was ok and when I talk to Financial Aid they tell me I have a credit and to talk with bursar, I speak with bursar and they also confirm that I have a credit and I should email the person in charge of the stipend checks and I do that. The person then emailed me back and told me that I owed them, and they forgot to bill me for two classes that I had taken a while back. I then called her and expressed to her that I was very dissatisfied because I did all that I was supposed to do and called them to find out if I owed them anything I was told no more than once from each department. She then hung up on me. That is not professional at all.
I then in return called back to speak with her supervisor, of course she was not in. but I will be filing a formal complaint to her supervisor on her. Long story short, I will never go to another school like this again, EVER, and I will not recommend anyone to this school either. So if you considering this school please look somewhere else. PLEASE.
It makes me angry to sit here and read these reviews of people complaining about the cost of education. First education does cost money!!! The government is not going to pay for all of your school like they pay for all of your food. It is time to invest into your future instead of putting our country into more debt.
Keiser is a great school to attend you are on a fast track to graduate and you will graduate if you work hard! You can get a REGIONALLY accredited degree in 20 months for a Associates or 40 months for a bachelors degree. IT WOULD TAKE SOMEONE WHO IS WORKING FULL TIME 4 YEARS TO GET AN ASSOCIATES DEGREE AT POLK STATE.
So complain about the cost but in the long run your losing money going to a cheaper school its going to take you longer and your going to take classes you DO NOT NEED!! YOU could be in a CAREER by the end of year two instead of taking that one class at polk and being 2 years from graduating.want to graduate and actually start working instead of using my tax money to pay for your food stamps and your welfare check go to Keiser pay a little more and graduate with a career so you can be productive to society. THANKS!!
Another thing, I am so tired of people going to EVEREST or Florida Technical which is a nationally accredited schools they suck!! You are wasting your money not to be able to continue your schooling or even get a job!! KEISER is regionally accredited just like UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA!! Meaning if you get your Associates at Keiser you can continue at UF for a Bachelors. If you went to Everest YOU CAN NOT!!!!! Please make wise decisions not stupid ones
I would not suggest anyone take this core at Keiser in Fort Lauderdale. The Director and assistant director do not care about the students. I did all my Gen Ed courses at Keiser and had a 4.0 average going into my Respiratory Therapy. The core class size was small oly eight student.
In the Fundamentals class I got an A. The second class is Cardiopulmonary physiology the professor acts like he is teaching med students the test are medical student test. Needless to say out of 8 only 3 student made it and that was barely.
I feel the school just took my money now I am 25,000 in the hole and have to wait until the core starts again and hope someone fails. The Director and even professors talk about the students to other students. The director even told someone that the other 3 students would not make it what a joke.
