On Aug. 27, the Bradenton Herald published a reader's letter describing his daughter's experience with several local colleges, including Keiser University (KU). We congratulate Mr. Snow's daughter on her graduation and success in securing a career in her chosen profession.
The letter implies the very salient point that not all colleges are suited for all students. I would like to take this opportunity to correct the references made regarding Keiser University's accreditation.
KU is regionally accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges Schools (SACS) at Level VI, signifying the university's recognition as a doctoral level institution.
The state does not accredit colleges and universities, but it does administer the Common Course Numbering system. The system is designed to ease a student's transferability of credits and KU is a long-standing participant.
At Keiser University, proactively encouraging students and their families to be fully involved and informed in their collegiate decisions has allowed us to best serve our 20,000 current students and nearly 50,000 alumni.
David Reid, President, Keiser University Sarasota
