Dear Prospective Student,
Welcome to the Community Relations and Student Advancement Department of Keiser University. Our purpose is to assist our students as they pursue their educational and career goals, to be a resource for employers seeking skilled graduates, and to be of service to our communities.
In 1977, we recognized the demand for a high-quality national institution that would serve the needs of career-focused students and the changing requirements of growing business and healthcare communities. That year, we started the Keiser School with just one student, two classrooms, and a strong commitment to prepare graduates for professional careers in a dynamic workforce.
Today, 40 years later, our commitment remains the same, even as our institution has grown to become Keiser University with more than 20,000 students in 20-plus location in Florida and internationally in Nicaragua and China. Our values of service, leadership, collaboration, excellence, and integrity still drive our efforts and determine our priorities.
Our “students first” philosophy combines foundational skills, leadership preparation, financial literacy, student support services including tutoring, writing and math labs, and convenient scheduling options for students. Many of our degrees require an internship, externship or clinical rotations which provide students valuable hands-on learning opportunities within a professional setting.
Collaborative partnerships with employers are an essential part of our mission. More than 1,000 industry advisors help us customized training for students at their jobsite, online, and on campus. Their guidance and recommendations ensure that our curriculum is “state of the practice”, thus preparing our students to compete and lead in their chosen fields. As a result, Keiser University is proud to be recognized with high placement and graduation rates.
We believe that leadership development is also a critical element of a student’s education and a necessary attribute for success. Keiser students are encouraged to take part in student organizations, such as the Student Government Association, honor societies and clubs specific to their chosen degree.
Keiser University strives for excellence on and off the field, offering 25 athletic programs including Seahawks football which debuted in Fall 2018. Seahawks sports at our Flagship campus in West Palm Beach includes men’s and women’s programs in basketball, golf, cross country, track and field, soccer, tennis and many more, as part of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) and the Sun Sports Conference.
Keiser University has enjoyed a rich tradition of service and achievement. Students, faculty, and staff volunteer hundreds of hours to charitable causes, raising money and donating their respective talents to benefit those in need. Our charitable giving and volunteer service hours through institution-driven fundraisers across Florida amount to more than $1.5 million annually. Recipients included the American Cancer Society, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the March of Dimes and many more deserving organizations.
We appreciate the opportunity to be an integral part of the communities and state we service. Thank you for being our partners in changing and enriching lives. Together, we will continue to provide a foundation of educational excellence for the future of Florida.
My instructors believed in me. They were more than instructors, they tried to get to know you as a person and tried to understand your goals so they could push you towards them. Student services helped me find a job before I even graduated. Everyone was dedicated to my overall success.
Going to Keiser University was one of the greatest experiences in my life. All of my deans, professors, and staff made me feel that I was a part of something very special, and I am. I would recommend for anyone to get their education at Keiser University.
The instructors at Keiser University impacted my life. They believed in my ability to become a great graphic designer, regardless of how I felt about my skills. KU helped to prepare me for the real world and got me to where I am today.
If not for my education at Keiser I probably would not be where I am today, in both life and career. It is because of going to Keiser and the instructors I had that I joined a club started by Mr. Williams, The Lakeland Shooters Photography Group, which allowed me to venture into an amazing and very creative field that I use to enhance all aspects of my life.
The Design program at Keiser University was filled with real world learning and hands on instruction… Based on the portfolio I created while a student at Keiser University, I landed a job in Graphic Design for a major online retailer immediately after graduation.
The year and a half I spent in the program better prepared me for attaining a job in the field…As a hands-on learner, the project-centered teaching was perfect for me.
Keiser University has given me the opportunity to embrace a career change… It has opened the door for a timely graduation and quick return to the work force…
Without the education I received at Keiser University, I would not be where I am today!
I not only received an excellent education but also encouragement and training that built my self-confidence every day.
I realize the amount of knowledge I gained and feel that the educational experiences have developed me in to a person who can move higher up the career ladder.
Keiser University’s MBA program has renewed my mind, changed the way I think, and given me a new sense of purpose. The professors transformed my attitude and behavior, gave me the self-confidence I was lacking, and restored my energy.
It has been great attending and graduating from Keiser University. Because of the small class sizes, I was able to build good relationships with classmates and professors. The PA professors care very much about the progress and success of the students and have been great advisors every step of the way through the program.
Attending Keiser University and getting my degree was the best decision I have ever made. The small class sizes and personalized attention helped me get my degree quickly. The hands-on experience and the education landed me a job at a neighboring law firm.
I chose Keiser because it had everything—small classes, caring professors, hands-on learning, and counselors that are really there for you. I feel like I’m part of a family here, not just a number.
After being denied for several promotions at my current employer, I decided that I needed to further my education. Since graduating from Keiser with my bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, I have been promoted and I am able to obtain positions that weren’t available to me before.
Beyond the curriculum of the courses, the lessons the instructors have taught me have paid dividends in my real work experiences. How to respond to criticisms, project and time management, interview skills, the list goes on and on. At the end of the day, they not only showed me how to design, but they taught me how to be a professional.
Keiser helped change my life by getting my education at the right school! I had been going to another school before, I dropped out because I felt that I was not getting enough information. When I found out about Keiser, I was pleased because the instructors were great.
My decision to attend Keiser University has been one of the best decisions I’ve made. I chose to enroll in the Information Technology program… The one-class-a-month pace helped incredibly with my self-discipline.
The BA for Business Administration at Keiser has to be one of the best in the nation. Keiser takes the basics that are taught at the Associates level and uses them to strengthen your skills and knowledge.
I found that Keiser University’s Nuclear Medicine program of advanced studies and small class size was a perfect fit. I never came across a faculty member who wasn’t truly interested.
