Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known.

What Students Are Saying

2.80 Average Rating
When visiting Keiser University's Lakeland campus i was very pleased with the way the advisors and faculty treated each other and guests. The main priority on this campus is to make sure you accomplish your career goals and not be distracted by anything else. Immediately when I sat down with the advisor all questions were answered, and never lost communication with advisor through admissions process.STRONGLY RECOMMEND.....

Good place to study.
More possibilities to succeed in the mayor that I choose.
Supportive and capable personal to help students with their questions.
Shirley from Winter Haven, FL
Keiser University is an accelerated college. Be ready to study hard and take a mid-term, quizzes, post test, and final in one month. It is very rewarding though knowing you will be finished in sixteen months, rather than twenty-four months. I'll be working and making an income while the college down the street is still in class.
