No time to focus on the actual material. Writing research papers every week, writing discussions, student replies, power points, etc. Learning an entire book in one month time only before moving on to the next class. Teachers are horrible, just reading quickly through slide shows.

A joke does not suffice how horrible and HORRENDOUS this school is. From The staff to the financial aid department people working here are imbeciles. They hire high pitched people for the advisement (recruiters ) who sound like they've been drinking coffee or on cocaine providing false hope and 30,000 forms to sign in one day giving you no space to think and breath. Then they take you to the financial aid office where they have a horrible attitude or just look so depress, no experience in the field,... Read More

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... Read More

Veterans and non veterans, go to a community/state college. Do not waste your time with Keiser University. The instructors are very unprofessional. The instructor should be there to help you but they turn out to be the biggest bullies and so is the administration because they will not back you up, hence $$$ thats all they see. The curriculum is very fast pace and if you fail a class it takes months for you to get into the next one. They are in the business to make money so dont kid yourself into... Read More

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... Read More

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... Read More

Keiser is a great school! The professors are amazing! The school atmosphere is very supportive to each students success. The student services department is wonderful. Professor Brunson is a great mentor and resource for every student she meets! Great school!

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.

It has been a few years since my last degree earned from Keiser and while I can say I'm professionally excelling I do not give much credit to the institution for my success. The professor demonstrated poor leadership and assistance. Once you graduate you will not be given grants your entitled to and will be left with what in reality is an unethical cost for a degree. Many COTAs who graduated from this university are not knowledgeable of the new healthcare regulations or documentation requirements.... Read More

Unfortunately, I had to drop out of this school it's beyond expensive and it's not worth the money. And I ended up paying over thousand dollars for dropping out. Let me start by saying keiser is nothing but trying to make money and keep the student in debt. It's just terrible to see all they care about is mone nothing else. Overall I had a very bad experience, and I will never ever go back to that school again. I'll rather work harder at a community college than ended up in debt for no reasons. Keiser... Read More

Tampa: I at first liked this college until I failed out of the program needing two more classes to complete the course. This school is a fast paced school meaning you take one month classes and you have to learn an entire book within that month. You have to learn up to 10 chapters the first 2 weeks with a midterm, presentations, and research papers. I wanted to get out of the program going into the second class. I was told that I could do it so I kept on. I again tried to get out on the 3rd class.... Read More

I love reading these posts, especially the ones that blame Keiser for their problems life, “the teachers don’t teach, the financial aid don’t tell you up front, the Deans don’t listen when I come complaining. That’s why I failed. I Likewise, I bet you deserve credit for thinks like.” I never been to jail, I never missed by child support payments, I never did drugs”. Guess what you’re not supposed too. Funny my teachers teach, I know what the classes cost, because it said so when I looked when I signed... Read More

The instructors are great! However, the staff including the deans, Finical aid, and program directors are a joke! They don't allow any food or drinks (including water) in the 5 hour long classrooms. The deans try to control the instructors and students and it's affecting the academics. They are very unprofessional and childish. They say they have an open door policy but lie to you when you ask them questions. I would take your money elsewhere.

Keiser University is the most awful, unorganized and unprofessional school I have ever attended. The financial aid office is rude, the bursar's office is extremely rude, not sure why then they are ACCEPTING MY MONEY. Lastly, some of the teaching staff is completely unethical and harassing problems. They try to be smooth and call over speaker phone because they know their school is shady. I WOULD NOT recommend this school to anyone unless you have money you just want to waste. Spoke to an official... Read More

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!

Lets start off by saying I had no confidence once so ever about myself going to school until I started Keiser. I went to BCC and FIU and barely made it by the skin on my teeth. I have two kids and trying to find a schedule that worked with them was hard until I went to this school.

Everyone seems nice at first until you ask for help. I was ONE class away until being placed in my OTA program I became extremely ill to the point that I was hospitalized for two weeks! While I was in my hospital bed I... Read More

They completely dismissed me, even my professor spoke up on my behalf and they still acted as if I didn't do enough to please them. After that I lost all faith in that school.. And well going back to school in general. Almost 12,000 dollars down the drain. My advice is to cross this school or should I say "business" off your list. ,/p>

Well i attended Keiser back in Oct of 2010 I thought it was great, small classes once a month. Student services sucked Financial aid ladies none of them knew what they were doing all they seemed too know what shade of pink they decorated there desks with completely incompetent people. The dean looks like shes 22 and also acts like a child you get no where with here. She's also incapable of giving direct answers the books where ridiculously expensive couldn't find on amazon and the classes well wow... Read More

I had to stop going for a month because of a trip i was taking and never stated i was dropping my clinical classes where scheduled for may 2011 when i came back from my trip I found that i had been withdrawn from the program without any notice at all. So when i came back from my trip trying to resolve the issue they had moved the waiting time all the way back to may 2013 this happened in 2011. I was so upset i stop going to school and so after a year i went back to my community college Miami dade.

I'm really interested in getting back to the occupational therapy program but its the only accredited OTA program remotely close to my home. A previous comment makes a lot of sense though they are graduating so many ota's that by the time i graduate I might have a hard time trying to find employment. So im not really sure what to do but i hope this helps someone.
