WEG Study Quoted in the Miami Herald by Keiser University Chancellor

In the Letter to the Editor section of the Miami Herald, Arthur Keiser, Chancellor of Keiser University expressed his concern over recent negative reports on America’s private sector colleges and universities.

The comparable costs at Keiser are approximately $7,800 per FTE making it less expensive than public education, not more.” Keiser University is the State of Florida’s top producer in associate graduates in health professions, computer and information sciences, criminal justice and homeland security.
