Everest University Online may seem like the answer to starting a new career but, its not. Starting out here I thought the world of this school, I was all in. Until I realized that there were no midterms and no final exams for each course. That's when I noticed that they give you courses but don't check to see if you really know what you learned before moving you on to new courses. To me, that was enough to realize that employers may not take this degree serious and also schools that I plan to attend in the future. I have read a ton of reviews where other schools think a degree from Everest is a joke and now I completely understand why. I am simply going off my experience and I would say go to a community college before coming here. Community colleges are cheaper, they have an actual place you can go into if you need assistance with anything instead of being on the phone for hours and yes they do have online classes as well. I so wish I would have done my research before starting here at Everest because now I feel somewhat educated and thousands of dollars in debt. Please go somewhere else it will save you a ton of money. For my degree at Everest I have to pay back $30,000, when i could have went to a community college and paid $13,000 for the same degree. A lot of the classes do not transfer over and you will not get credit for many either. I feel I have given many reasons not to attend Everest Uni. online.

I am completely satisfied with my experience at Everest. Since the beginning I have been treated with respect and genuine care. I am very sorry for everyone else that had horrible experiences. My instructors are amazing and give very good feedback to all of my work and the classes are challenging. They are great school to attend if you are military affiliated, they have a wonderful scholarship for military students. You have to make sure that you have a B average to keep the scholarship. My student representative calls me about every 2-3 weeks to make sure that I am comfortable in my classes, to make sure my grades are good, and to ask if I need anything. I appreciate the phone calls because it makes me feel like they really care. I would absolutely recommend this online school to a friend or family member.

WORST SCHOOL EVER PLEASE BEWARE THEY ...

Worst school ever beware they advertised how they care but they don't!! I graduated 2012 and no employer trusts their education I didn't receive any help from their school what so ever. It's like once you graduate they erase you snd no one calls from anyone. I am nearly 40,000 in debt because they frequently increase the tuition yearly! Everest will sell you a dream but don't be foolish. A year later I enrolled in a community colleges and Everest University are non transferable because no accredited school trusts their education. Please beware and do not attend this university! If you are already enrolled my advice would be to find a local college or university near your home and leave Everest ASAP!! You will pay 3 times more at Everest then you will at your local college!!

Not the greates.

I am not satisfied with my experience with Everest. There are a lot other colleges where you will pay 1/5 of the tuition and will receive identical or better education. They advertise and sell themselves as a school that "cares", where you can reach your professors and advisors. I am currently an online student and I am having issues with a professor (who does not answer any questions btw, pretty much a teach yourself course). Well, I have literally spent about a total of 5 very valuable hours to try to reach someone on the phone and it has been IMPOSSIBLE. The only time someone will answer is if you press the option for enrollment. That right there just describes Everest in a nutshell.

Great School

It seems that everyone has different experiences with Everest. I also noticed that most people who are experiencing problems are the ones attending the for profit school. I attend Everest University Online and I love it! This is the third online environment I have been a part of and it is the best of the three. I began in April of 2013 and am now in my third term. Not to mention, I have been on the Dean's List since my first term. I haven't experienced any problems with student or financial services. My money comes on time like clockwork. The professors are excellent, knowledgeable, and passionate about educating. I have learned a lot since I have been here. All of these negative responses don't bother me and should not bother anyone else. I am not worried about whether they will find work for me. God is my source. He will open the door for me. I'm not depending on Everest. I feel that I am in the right place and at the right time. God placed me here and here will I stay. Why fix something that isn't broken? As for me, I'm not claiming any of the problems these other people are having. It's already done! People just do your best. Complete your readings, discussions, and individual work and you will be successful. Always give your professors quality work. What more can they ask of you?

I graduated in June now we are in October. I haven't gotten a call from the school since I graduated. When I went looking for work the gave me a paper with companys to call myself, so much for job placement. The teachers are good but you will be reading more than doing practical work. I recommend you get a list of grads for the program that studied and see how many of them actually got placed. I studdied hvac and maybe the medical field might be better MAYBE!!!

I've been enrolled in Everest University Online since April 2013. I honestly can't see a problem with the college, I like it. Couple of times I have come close to get on the Dean's list whether it's an A and two Bs or two A+s and a C, the grants are great they help you with your school bills to an affordable cost such as $24 a month. It's changing my life for the better.

I started off at Everest College in California and then moved out of state and transferred to all online. While at the Campus, it feels like high school, not a college environment what so ever. The instructors were horrible, you don't really learn anything because they don't care. When I transferred to online I thought it was a little better because you are able to go at your own pace and not be held back by students that don't want to be there, but once again the instructors didn't care and don't offer any real help when you need it. I completed the program in 2 years and never received a diploma or certificate showing I completed the Degree. Every time I all I get the run a around and never get anything accomplished. I recently tried to transfer my credits to a Community College in NV and I was told yesterday that the credit I "earned" here are not nationally accredited so I will have to start all over. What a surprise considering every single employee I asked said they were accredited. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY! I WILL BE PAYING OFF A LOAN FOR NOTHING FOR THE NEXT 10+ YEARS!

GRADUATE! No problems

Wow, I didnt have really any problems linked to them. I did graduate with an Associates Degree in Billing and Coding. I will say that they did not "really" help with job placement. I am currently still looking, even with my previous experience of 3 years as a medical biller. The cost was scary! I am now 35,000.00 in debt. That is my only complaint. The classes were challenging and the instructers were very helpful. I dont really know why people would think that they would help you with job placement and you are not even graduated yet? That always comes during your last term in any school when you are on course to graduate. The only down fall to attending online school is that you dont get the support of your class mates. But there are ways to get around that you just need to be proactive. When ever I called them they were super helpful and returned my calls timely. I also had no problems posting assignements or with the financile side. I mean people that graduated from University's have a really hard time getting jobs that they are more then qualified for. So why should you be any different?

Tell us about your college experience.

I have been attending since august 2012. I haven't had any problems with this school yet. I'm on the deans list, getting all A's and a great gpa! I guess if I have any problem I'll find out when I graduate July 6 2014. At first I wasn't understanding my assignments, now I'm doing good and they aren't as stressful as they were. My coordinator is friendly and seems to take the time to listen if I'm having any difficulty or when I have questions. I have had good instructors so far.

What advice can you offer other students?

Just smile and do your best. Ask for help if you need it. Talk as if you know who you're talking to, no need to be shy.
