I recently graduated from Everest University in October 2013, with an Associate in the Paralegal Studies Program. I had a pretty good experience with all of the departments, basically smooth sailing. I am now enrolled with the Bachelor's Degree Program in the same program and have caught so much flick in the Financial Aid Department. I decided weeks before the end of the term that I did NOT want to drop that I wanted to continue at the school because I was going through personal things and that I would have to drop. When it came time to start a new term I had No classes at the start of the term due to the fact they drop me anyways after the request not to and now it is an issue with my FA. I had talked with someone about my FA, classes were suppose to be there and nothing was done. I have been going through so much and I am just to my point with the school. Can anyone help me who has had this problem???

Everest is currently involved in a predatory lending lawsuit. I suggest nobody go here.

I am presently in the 3rd semester of my second year. I am proud to say that I have maintained a 3.0 to 3.69 average. The problem is that I needed financial aid to assist me in my endeavors. In the time I have only received three checks, the amount was $512.00 in each check. I asked the financial aid office for an explanation of the disbursement, and I have never been able to get one. Other students have the same complaint.

I had hands on training on how to do the work. However, there are programs that help students to stay motivated in achieving their goals. I was excited to go to this school and I have earned my Associate's degree. In addition, I am soon pursuing my Bachelor's degree in Science- Business Administration. It is an amazing college for me and I think it would be for others.

I did an online chat with a representive and told them I wanted to be contacted via e-mail with no phone calls. They said that was fine so I gave them my e-mail address and waited for a couple of days to hear from someone, no one ever contacted me so I did another live chat and specifically asked them if they could contact me via e-mail that said that it was no problem. I had let the person know that I had to end the chat session early but still sent them my e-mail address and know ever contacted me and that was over two weeks ago. How unprofessional can you be? If it was a problem to receive information via e-mail they should have to told me. I stopped trying to get any information from them and I'm looking else where.

I would only recommend program to anyone who is self motivated with no learning disabilities. I never had any problems with getting help. I had a student advisor who walked with me every step of the way and who was always available to help me. I am not working in my field but the degree helped in my current field and I do use what I have learned. I have no intention of going back to school so I do not know what transfers and what doesn't but if I did go back, it would be to this same school. I even got to walk the stage to receive my diploma and it is currently on my wall.

The only thing good about this college was my teachers they actually cared about helping me with my grades and my class assignments. The school harasses you to register with them. They never get your loans set up on time for the new school year I have always had the Department of Education come to my rescue for funding for the next year. I have yet to get my cap and gown I did get a tassel for All A's I never had all A's I had A's and B's and one C my whole time being there. I got a letter in the mail with my tassel that came on a scratch piece of notebook paper that said what the tassel was for and that it was from the Everest CEO -.- I have been looking for work ever sense I also received an e-mail stating that since I was NOT looking for work to return my diploma.

I attempted to obtain a degree from Everest University Online because of the convenience since I work full time and have 4 children. Had I known then what I know now, I would have NEVER enrolled in this school. I am currently $20,000+ in debt and just recently transferred to another school only to find out that Everest is nationally accredited, but not regionally accredited (regionally being the higher and preferred of the two) so therefore, most if not all of my credits would not be transferable. These people will tell you whatever it takes to get you in the door and get your money. Anytime you call and talk to someone different in the same department you get a different story; there is no consistency whatsoever. I have also heard that people who get their degree from Everest aren't able to get a job once the graduate. I'm glad God spared me before it was too late.

Everest university online is way too over priced. They leave their students to fend for themselves and are often I reachable in the event of a problem. I do not recommend this school unless you are extremely self motivated and you have no learning disabilities. They give you no breaks and will drive you into the ground. I was told I would graduate in 18 months if I held a full load of classes or 16 units. I did and at the end of 18 months was surprised by two extra classes and a un reachable student center. I would also like to add that the school is not going to be open under its current parent company and is being sold by direction of the federal government. I am supposed to graduate in October but am unsure if that will even happen. I am over 20,000 in debt and not even sure I will have a degree even though I have a 3.94 grade point average. Beware!
