Let me begin by saying, Keiser is EXPENSIVE. That is no secret, so it's laughable to read some of these comments with people saying they weren't properly informed of the cost. Tuition and fees are clearly detailed in a financial aid package that MUST be accepted or declined by the student PRIOR to enrollment. The benefit far outweighed the cost, because I was a full time, working mother, with one on the way, and it was not feasible for me to complete my education in the traditional sense. The online option was great or me.
Keiser IS accredited by SACS (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools), which as someone else noted, is the same accrediting body for the Univ of Florida, Florida State, Univ of South Florida, Univ of Central Fl, etc. They accepted my math and social science credits from a community college, eliminating the need for me to take those courses. If they were only about money, they wouldn't have allowed the credit transfer.
I had NO issues throughout the duration of my enrollment, not with books, financial aid, administration, nothing. When the bookstore didn't have computer software compatible with my computer (VISTA), my instructor allowed me to do a replacement project. When I gave birth, during a different class, my instructor left my access to class open and gave me time to complete all of my assignments. I chose not to participate in the graduation ceremony, and my degree was delivered promptly to my house, and it looks great on the wall in my house!
The course work was NOT easy, or light, nor should it be. It's college, it's supposed to be challenging and stimulating. My instructors actively participated in ALL of our threaded discussions, and during a tough time when I was slacking in my American Lit class, my instructor CALLED ME to make sure everything was ok.
At the end of each semester, I had no problems selling my books to an online book buy back company. I also used all of my tuition expenses as a tax deduction and got a very sizable tax return.
My only suggestion to Keiser would be to market itself better, and make it visible that they are indeed a legitimately accredited school. There is still skepticism amongst many employers as to the quality of Keiser's instruction, but obviously they are doing something right! I know several people who graduated from their Radiology Tech program who have had NO trouble finding jobs in hospitals, and one with a mobile x-ray company. Keiser is a good school that offers quality programs!
