I've had no experience with this university and I intent to remove this review right away. I am just trying to figure out how to leave a review. Now I just learned that it must be at least 100 w in length so I am going to keep on writing about this school that I have not experience with just to see what happens next.

NO HELP, SCAM
2012-**** Medical Assisting Student. Got to my 3rd semester and was unable to find a location for my clinicals. No help from the university at all. I am diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, attempted to get disability assistance from the school, again nothing. In my first semester I purchased a year worth of books, understanding that there would be a remaining balance to be paid monthly of $800. However, I withdrew October 2013, officially it processed on November 1, 2013. And I was charged 10% for that semester, they state there is no book buyback, and that they allowed me to go over $2,000 of my aid in books, and 1,000 for the 3 day difference, RIDICULOUS!!!. Now 2015, attempting to complete my degree, and not able to because of my official transcripts. Finally got in touch with bursars office after months of people saying they will call me back, they told me that all they do is send an email to attempt to inform of any balance, that because they are online they do not call or send anything in the mail. Well, I am paying back my financial aid, almost $15,000 I also got full grants, and still owe $3,000, how is that possible? I am paying it back to the government and cannot get any credit for my time there? They said they will not be able to help me, with any of this even if I do a payment arrangement they will not release my transcript, until it is paid in full. Again, I cannot work, because I cannot be on my feet long anymore, so I decided to go back to school for business which is more desk work, so I offered them $100, a month, however they said they will not accept that. They can;t do book buybacks, even though I checked and all the books are still the same as before. This is utterly ridiculous, I cannot believe I am stuck now with no way to complete my degree, because of this mistake I made with this school. They are extremly expensive and charge for everything.

Send my official transcript to one school, accept the books backs and I will pay the remainder of balance after seeing a full invoice of charges and credits.
Keiser University Jacksonville, Florida
This school is money not education driven. Their emphasis is on breaking your spirit and giving the feeling of hopelessness. They set unattainable goals which are personable and have nothing to do with preparing you for your future in the any degree field.They should be ashamed of their unethical behavior. Whatever loop hole they are using to extort individuals out of thousands of dollars needs to be closed. When less than 60% of the class is still enrolled only half way through a program of study it's time for Mr. Keiser to reevaluate his curriculum and to perhaps take is personal preferences out of the equation!
Keiser University student loan FRAUD!
I have applied for a student loan back in November of 2007 so that I could attend Keiser University in Sarasota, FL. I was swindled in my opinion, and was signed up for a semester of classes I was not even interested in (I wanted to go to Pastry School, and was signed up for a general Culinary program study) all the time telling me, "Oh well you can choose your pastry related classes once you're here" I was told I would need to get a loan to take care of my class schedule, and it was recommended I call Sallie Mae. I did so, and was approved for an $11,000 loan (split into 2 parts) within 24 hours. The next day after attending a Meat 101 class at Keiser I was called to the financial aide office and told I would need more financial support to cover my classes. I left in tears, knowing I would not be able to find anymore funding and contacted Sallie Mae, to explain my situation and ask that we can cancel the loan. In which case, I was told, "Sure no problem. However, we've already written a check for the first $5,500 to Keiser so we will need them to send the check back." I returned to my counselor at Keiser the next day, and was told in so many words, "Sorry this is our policy. You signed the contract, and are now responsible for paying it back." I never even went to class, other than those first few days! I've also offered to return my unused knife kit, two chef jackets, and textbook, but have gotten little to no response from anyone at Keiser willing to work with me. I still have all my equiptment and would like a peaceful resolution with everyone involved. I have been reported to a collections agency, and have even applied for a mediation meeting with a Sallie Mae Recovery Agency, which is scheduled for September 13, 2011. I was contacted on August 15,2011 by a woman named Renee from the Sallie Mae Recovery Agency and it was explained I have till the end of the month to "find $4,800" which is a negotiated amount they came up with. My total originally was $6,800 from the cashed check that went to Keiser. I have no way to pay this amount in full to Sallie Mae. I'm a waitress, & I live at home with my mother, who has actually been in the hospital for over 2 weeks, and Renee told me they could perhaps take my car, or relinquish my wages if I cannot come up with the money. I have been to my local bank who holds my car loan to see if a another loan was possible to pay Sallie Mae back, and they have already closed out the loan, which dropped my credit score too low to be accepted for a loan & my car is not a usable form of equity I was told. I don't own a house, or even my car yet, so I don't know what to do. I just feel completely swindled by Keiser and don't think it's fair they are allowed to do this to students. I realize I signed the contract, and should have read things more carefully perhaps, but I was in and out of the registration office in less than an hour. At first Sallie Mae seemed understanding, but have now changed their tone completely, and aren't really willing to work with me. I was making payments back to Sallie Mae for quite sometime, but have since been told "my $100 a month isn't really helping anything. My principle interest in too high." I don't know what to do, I really do want this to work out and not have my name or credit tarnished. I just am unsure what steps to take, next. Please if anyone could respond and help me at all, I'd be so grateful. Thank you, Whitney Pemrick

They are scamers and liers
i attened years ago and after withdrawing found all the ways they rip you off.. first they get the student loans for you and you never see where the money is put, if there is any extra and if you stop attending they keep the loan even if you haven't used it all. second they tell you your credits transfer when they don't thats why i stopped going. third the charge you for extra classes when you withdraw sometimes the same class twice. forth the prices of the books are almost 4x more than if you bought them somewhere else. lastly they loose you paperwork so when you ask about everything they say i will get back to you and never do!!!! DO NOT GO HERE!!!
