"Where do I start... I have attended both private and public educational institutes, Lets be real the only thing all colleges and universities want is money. They are money making machines basically and Keiser is not any different. You just have to figure out which one fits your needs. I am currently a student at the Miami Keiser campus attending the Bachelors in Biomedical science program. The classes at Keiser are accelerated and fast paced which is great if you want to graduate quicker but not as good for retaining information and finishing with an idea of what the subject was about. If you attend Keiser you HAVE TO finish with them or else you will be on the same boat as everyone else that writes bad reviews for Keiser University. They are overpriced and quality is not the best. I have a GPA of 3.51 so I would consider myself a good opinion maker on Keiser University. Keiser University sounds like the easier way out to finish a degree but its not they are unorganized and you will come out of pocket in a hefty amount. If you decide to transfer to another university half way into your Bachelors other schools wont take half of your credits from Keiser because they know its an accelerated program and they don't count it. Don't come into Keiser thinking they will assist you with your work schedule either. They don't inform you of the class schedule a few weeks before the next schedule, they will basically post it a week before you have to be in class. So have a very flexible employer. I would advise to attend another reputable college or university regardless of your age and Keiser should only be considered as a last resort. And I mean last resort. Professors are professional and educated, dont have a complain about administration only that they are unorganized, but Keiser university as a whole should be your last resort as an educational institute"

"I went to the Fort Myers Keiser campus for the accelerated nursing program. This was the biggest mistake I could have ever made! Teachers were harsh, lacked empathy, care, and had no desire to help students do the best they can. It was more like an adult day care for them, clock in tell us a few things that didnt relate to any exam we ever took, lecture us on what color socks, shoes, and how other silly rules they have in place and clock out. We literally had to teach ourselves and read the entire book for majority of these classes. We couldnt find a single professor that cared to guide us to success or give us insight. They were all condescending and heartless. Not sure how any of them were or still are currently nurses with those attitudes and way of thinking. I would avoid this campus at all cost!! Theyre biased with their grading and favortize students. They just care about the money we pay them, its more of a business than faculty that cares about seeing their students succeed. Pathetic! This is coming from a student who is passing!"

"I've been seeing so many horrible things about Keiser University. Everyone has their own experience. I attend the port st lucie campus but I had a medical issue which has made me withdrawal but I will be coming back to Keiser next month. I've been at Keiser for a little over a year and the school is AMAZING. Positive environment. Due to having health issues and surgeries I was forced to withdrawal from my classes multiple times, I just couldn't attend. The teachers, staff, financial aid were very understanding and have helped me throughout my journey and they've not let me down. The classes are expensive but you finish faster. It's by far the best college I've been to and I'd recommend Keiser to everyone. It's the best. I admire the hard work of teachers and staff members."

Graduation Year: 2013
"I am thrilled that I was able to complete my master's degree in 12 months and begin teaching at a college level! Now I am working on my PhD, and it has been a challenging but gratifying experience. The instructors were helpful, and the work was fast-paced. I am thankful for the format and the way it pushed me to work hard and succeed."

"FAST TRACK BSN PROGRAM IS THE WORSE! Do not go to the college for your nursing degree, they clearly fight to weed out as many students as they can when you start. Professors rarely make time to meet with students and constantly reprimanding students over the color of their socks and many other silly things over their education. They worry more about looking for things to call you out on then they do teaching you. half of our professors had no idea what they were teaching, our director walked around like a nazi putting many students down. They rarely say anything uplifting or kind, yet 90of the program focuses on having empathy and kindness. Clearly traits they lack! We hear at least once a day how many people dont succeed in these programs and how they are intense and they have no excuses, you can be at your own funeral and they still wont accept that as a valid excuse for any reason. Unethical and inhumane! I wish I could say I was exaggerating, but every cohort before and after me can attest to this! I even had to speak to the Dean about some personal issues we had and we just got "I have no time" rushed us into voicing our thoughts and told us "well I apologize nothing I can do" and walked out! When you can even get a kind word or any feedback from your Dean of all people there is clearly an issue!"

Degree: Occupational Therapy Assistant
Graduation Year: 2021
"I attend Keiser university, Pembroke Pines campus for the occupational therapy Assistant program. So far the staff have been nothing but amazing and my teachers are fantastic, especially my psychology teacher Adriana Repaci. Yes the school is intense and you have to pay attention and work at a fast pace, but isn’t that why we go to college? To push ourselves to be ready for a competitive work environment! If working at a fast pace and having to pay attention in class isn’t for you, then I suggest you try a community college or fast food!"

"TERRIBLE! Terrible communication! As a first time college student I thought maybe moving away from home and going to Keiser would be a great idea. But once the time came to move I realized that I was biting off way more than I could chew. So I had to withdraw from classes and pick a college closer to home. The bursars office stated on a phone call that the new loan that had just been sent out just a couple days before I withdrew from the University that they would take out a little over $2,000 for a withdrawl from a university fee and the rest of the $9,000 loan would be sent back as a refund but now they are saying that that is against policy and I will still have to pay back the loan even though I am not attending the school for that term. Extremely upset and aggravated. MONEY HUNGRY SCHOOL STAY AWAY"

"I'm a current student, I do not recommend the school!!! Because of lack of communication with student, ...professor do not use the same template for SOAP notes and each one wants a different format, each semester with a different teacher is like start from zero, is crazy... Go to another school!!!, is like they want suspend all student. Of course each student represent money!!! Is the only thing important for that school, MONEY."
