"First of all, the lady that teaches Kinesiology is unqualified...She does not even have a Masters. She does not like questions, her power points are horrible, and her exams are filled with so many mistakes. She has favorites especially those that do not question her because quite honestly they do no know any better. She is abrasive and the open door policy with her is false. She speaks horribly about other students with other students and we hear back. Please have someone more qualified because she is not. People make sacrifices and this school is not cheap. Subsequently, this class does not have an accompanying lab. They have a lot of stupid papers which is such a waste of time. Now I know why no one takes Keiser seriously."

"School is very unorganized, teachers are very unprofessional in the nursing program. Teacher stated she was going to make test harder because we all did so good on last test. Which is unfair. Also the teachers talking about the students unprofessionaly and in front of other students. Made comments that they didnt care if you have a family on a ventilator that you cannot miss class or being on your phone."

"Keiser University is definitely a school that I would recommend to others. Although it is a private school, which many seem to frown upon, it is actually pretty good. They only do one class at a time, and you always finish that class in one month. Then you never have to go back again. It's just nice to know that you can concentrate on one subject at a time and don't have to juggle between classes. They still count semesters just like everyone, and you still get at least 4 classes each semester, it just makes it more simple."

"As a Keiser graduate, I can give a little insight to help someone make a decision. The tuition is OUTRAGEOUS so unless you are wanting to go in a limited access program like Nursing, OTA, PTA, etc; I would not recommend them. You can get the same quality of education for much cheaper elsewhere. However, I can say that after completing my AA degree, I transferred to a public state university and all of my courses transferred. I did have to pick up some additional courses: 2 Spanish, a biology lab, a health and wellness course, and 2 humanity courses. I am in Florida so I assume each state would vary. I probably would not attend here for my bachelors due to the negative view of Keiser within academia and the fact that employers do weigh the reputation of your degree granting institution at the bachelor level. Overall though, I did not have a bad experience. I was NOT constantly pulled from class, I didn't have any issues with my financial aid, I wasn't kicked out of any courses; it was a smooth ride for me."

"I just graduated from Keiser University at the Port Saint Lucie campus. My experience at Keiser was great and while I do agree that they are expensive, I can tell you first and foremost, they really do care about your success. I hit a rough patch and was having trouble in my class and J. in financial aid actually took the time to talk with me, give me advise, motivated and actually put me with the dean where I was given tutoring by teachers that seemed to really care about me. I was able to pass my class which seemed impossible at first. I would have dropped out but I'm glad I didn't. I'm working at a hospital now and while I'm not making huge money yet, I have a job and making much more than I did before...I'm also just about to start the nursing program there and I am very excited and I feel I owe it all to this man who helped me when he didn't have to. I came in there to thank him one day and saw him helping another student in the same way he helped me. His help was sincere and they are all a great bunch of people."

"The school is great and the faculty is awesome. I love how cozy the school is. It makes it nice to come here, feels like family. Dr. Chapman was so great in all of our classes. We held study groups once a week to go over everything in class to make sure that everyone had everything down."

"I really enjoy the program and all of the professors help to help you reach your goal. The financial services are helpful but the option to defer portion of our tuition would help those who need to work. I do believe the Kinesiology class needs to be extended to 2 months because the amount of the information."

"I have read many of these poor comments. Let me first say this: whatever you put into your education is what you will get out of it. I transferred credits from three colleges, they were all accepted. I first pursued my Associates in PhysicalTherapy Assistant, to learn in the process I did not have what it takes to finish my Anatomy and Physiology classes. I went to drop out and as they say in orientation, if you need a cheerleader we are here, we are here for you and your success is out success! Keiser Lakeland held to that saying, they cheered me on and supported me. They gave me the option to drop out, but also encouraged me to at least finish my Associates. So I stayed and I called the Dean, my Admissions Counselor, Financial Aid Officer, Bursar Office, Student Services and anyone that I ran into, yes even Professors that was not mine. They cheered me on, they supported me. I say this because I could have just dropped out and blamed them, but who would have been at fault? Me. I would have failed, not Keiser. So. Is Keiser perfect? No. But they try their hardest and they are genuine. I have spoke to the Campus President and even to Dr Keiser himself. Everyone makes time for you. If you do not seek assistance then they cannot help you. That is the bottom line. Before you sign up ask questions and take your time. Especially if you are a transfer student. Financial Aid will answer your questions with integrity. If you dont ask then point fingers at your self and not them. Read your paperwork. The majority of these comments could have been avoided if they read the paperwork to understand how tuition is charged. Okay. So bottom line: Keiser University is awesome and I would recommend them. In fact I am a second time student, I am working on my Bachelors at Keiser. Go SEAHAWKS!!!!"

"School is great :) H,M,M....are the best. I go to the one located in NPR, FL I really enjoy my time here. They try really hard to work with you. I think that people who actually take their time to work with you and care say a lot. They care about us"
