My experience at Keiser University was unlike none other. I was never really good at studying, so for me acquiring a college degree was not in my plans. After leaving the service I was never going to use my educational benefits because of the fear of failing at school. However, I looked into Keiser University and it just felt right. Soon after I started my classes in January of 2014, my first grade was an A. For me that was an amazing accomplishment. I believe that to be because of the caring and extra effort that the staff at Keiser University gives to all of their students. Every challenge that I have had was met by encouragement, caring and extra help from the staff. Dr. Watkins, a professor whom I will never forget, even came in on Saturdays to help me with my studies and I made it through. Now I am a Keiser University graduate working for the federal government, with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with concentrations in Criminal Justice and Homeland Security.
I am now attending Keiser University’s graduate school to get my masters degree in Psychology. This school has changed my life for the better and it still continues to do so.
In the event the Federal Government is delayed with tuition and fee payments to the institution, for those students using Post 9/11 G.I. Bill® (Chapter 33) or Vocational Rehabilitation & Employment (VR&E, Chapter 31) benefits, students will maintain access to continued enrollment and all University resources. These include but are not limited to the library, access to the Student Services department, class attendance, and/or other functions to assure the academic success of the student. Students will not incur any penalty or late fees due to VA pending payments, or be required to obtain additional funding to cover the cost of attendance.
All students using Chapter 33 benefits must provide a copy of their Certificate of Eligibility (COE) to the institution prior to the first day of class. All Veterans using Chapter 31 benefits must also provide a valid VA Form 28-1905 from their VRC prior to the first day of each semester.
Should the VA not provide a complete payment on the students’ behalf, the student will be responsible for all remaining costs incurred while attending school. This could occur if the student has already received all of their approved benefits, as there would be no remaining entitlement.
