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.

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!

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.

I see all of these particular people writing numerous bad reviews. I have so far had an excellent experience with Everest. I just finished my first term and everything seems to be going fine. A lot of people in here are complaining about not being able to find work and Everest not helping much to help find them work. For one, Maybe you should have went to school for something more in demand besides business or criminal justice. It's your own fault. I brought one of my classes up from a 45% to a 72% because I failed to do the discussions. I tried to go to college on campus at a major university but being in my mid 20's and needing to work for a living, its kind of hard to schedule around classes. Doing my assignments on my own time is a huge benefit for me and would be to any working adult looking to further their education. Btw,If you don't know that squiggly line under a word means it is misspelled you should go back to high school anyhow. I plan on achieving my associate degree in computer information science and enrolling again for a bachelor degree.

I can say that I didn't have any major concerns when I attended my online classes. But I can say that when I started online classes I was having a lot of issues with my computer at the time. But I called my advisor and made me aware of they I could get a laptop that they would send me. In which they did along with I never had to go out and look for any books. I had my books on time. I know that it seems that Everest has gotten a lot of bad reviews, but for me I had no major concerns. I am actually enrolled in returning back to get my BA. Remember that there is no such thing as a perfect school. Everyone have different opinions.

The 1st 2 weeks went fine, but then I would post my work but it wasn't showing online. I contacted IT & they wouldn't or couldn't fix it. They dropped me & failed me in all 4 classes. Then a month later I got a bill for $2300. It happened to my best friend too. Don't waste your time or money, they are scam artists.
