Fort Lauderdale, FL—Apr. 30—Keiser Career College (KCC), founded approximately 25 years ago, officially becomes Southeastern College effective on May 1 announced the Chairman of the Board, Dr. Arthur Keiser. Keiser Career College has six campuses in Florida including New Port Richey, Greenacres, Miami Lakes, North Tampa, Jacksonville (located at 6700 Southpoint Parkway) and St. Petersburg currently serving approximately 1, 500 students and nearly 7,000 graduates over the last two decades. The new Southeastern College is also affiliated with the Southeastern Institute campuses located in North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.
“The transition from KCC to Southeastern College reflects the elevation of the college from a predominantly Florida-serving institution to a more regionally-serving, Southeastern United States institution,” said Keiser. “We are excited by this development which will bring additional opportunities to help more students achieve the education necessary to seek employment in the information technology and healthcare industries,” he added.
The college’s mission and core values remain constant yet Southeastern College will research new degree offerings, while maintaining its students-first philosophy, focus on career-relevant training and placement, and meeting employer demands.
“Primarily, this transition signifies progress and an ongoing commitment to responsiveness and adaptability regarding employer demands and student needs in evolving local and regional economies throughout the Southeastern U.S.,” said Keiser. Secondarily, as Keiser University has served the students and the state of Florida for over 35 years and Keiser Career College, for greater than two decades, this change provides better clarity between the separate institutions. Each continues its mission, service to students and employers and varied program and degree offerings. As KCC evolves into Southeastern College, its service expands regionally throughout the Southeastern United States.
