About Keiser University
On Campus Housing
Keiser University is a private non-profit university founded by Arthur and Evelyn Keiser, a mother-son duo, who created the college in Florida during the year 1977. Their intention was to create an open environment for adult learners who want to seek career-focused education. It offers over 100 courses in various fields, each of which have different levels of certifications; from associate program certificates to doctorate degree certificates.
On top of being licensed by the Commission for Independent Education, the university is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award certificates of all levels of degrees; from associate levels to doctorate levels.
Initially, the university was a for-profit university, until Arthur Keiser sold the institute to Everglades College Inc. in 2011 and turned it into a non-profit entity in the process. Funnily enough, the latter is also a non-profit organization kick-started by Keiser himself.
Keiser University is also Florida’s third largest university; the urban university serves 20,000 approximate students, with over 21 campus sites in metropolitan areas and other communities. The main campus is situated in Fort Lauderdale.
When compared to most other universities, Keiser University holds itself at high levels and stays true to its reputation. They also hold high regard for their students and faculty, ranking them even in humanitarian categories. Their student-faculty ratio is 12 : 1.

Average Annual Cost
Much like most other universities, Keiser University gives you a formally clear and concise insight in the costs that go into your desired program. We've presented exhaustive information on its tuition structures, average net prices based on family incomes, and even campus expenses to help you understand how they have structured the expenses involved.
If you're willing to join Keiser University, you can expect that the costs can go upwards of $30,767 for a full year. Since they do not provide on-campus housing facilities, the room and board costs are estimated off-campus costs, which come up to $10,252. For an average applicant, the net price and annual tuition costs would come up to a total average of $27,649 and $19,008, respectively.
Keiser University provides a Net Price Calculator for tuition on their website to ensure that the nearest accurate net price is reflected based on your personal and financial factors. But the estimated prices must not be used as a primary basis for selecting the university as it is subject to change according to the socio-economic changes or according to the latest updates applied to the NPC. It’s mostly aimed at students willing to enroll as full-timer undergraduate students. With that said, please keep in mind that the calculator estimates values that are accurate for the years 2019-2020.

Not all students can push through the fees in one go. Keiser University understands the financial predicaments some students may face when first applying for their desired programs. If you qualify as a student who specializes in elite sports, then financial aid is offered to you as a show of merit. Generally, however, applicants for the university will be eligible for a Title IV (federal aid) financial aid. Here, you'll find a detailed look into how financial aid is provided by the university.
This section will walk you through:
All the available types of financial aid provided by the university.
What details are to be shared to apply for them.
What criteria must be met to ensure verification of eligibility.
What the final steps are to secure it.
Some of the grants offered by the university include the Pell Grant, the Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, the Florida Student Assistance Grant, and the Florida Resident Access Grant, which you will learn about when you visit it.
It’s important to note that not all students can qualify for it. For instance, it may also come in the form of loans, which are to be repaid (either in one go or in monthly installments). Also, only students who are U.S. citizens or are permanent residents are eligible to apply for Federal funding.
FAFSA is mandatory for student to be submitted before the end of the first week of the semester once they enroll in the program.
