Everest University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (221)
The coursework was made fun and in a way to be embedded into my head instead of memorizing to pass. The learning tools I found most helpful were the LIRN Library and Smartthinking. I have had a lot of positive interactions with classmates and have had nice open discussions in which I learned a lot from their point of view.
All of my instructors have been awesome and even given me quotes to be remembered for my journey through my degree. My overall experience has been fantastic, my advisors to the instructors have been awesome in helping me attain my goals and degree which I am now continiuing.
Anytime I have had an issue or concern they have always returned my calls right away and have helped with a solution. I have been a part of the NSCS, Presidents LIst and International Laureate Program, as well as the Ignitor Ambassador program which helps the new students adjust and get mentoring they need.
I transfered to Everest University Online. I already had my Associates Degree from and ABA accredited paralegal program and wanted to work on my BS Paralegal.
I did not receive ANY credits for the paralegal courses I had already taken and the first session is already over and they still have not figured out my financial aid... how hard can it really be?
Everyone I talked to told me something different about my financial aid and I jumped through hoops to accomplish the tasks they told me needed accomplished only to be told that I didnt really need to do it in the first place. VERY frusterating experience. I will be transferring to Kaplan University Online.
I went to this school for about a year and a half! I tried medical billing and coding and homeland security! This is the WORST school ever!!!!! They say you can earn your degree on your own time! Ha yeah right! I have two young children and can not get online every day to go to class so they dropped me from the school!
They are now saying I owe them a ridiculous amount of money because they failed to turn in the papers on their end for my financial aid! I am a single mother of two and should have had my schooling paid for but no now I have so much debt all because they couldn't do their part! DO NOT ENROLL IN THIS SCHOOL! They are scammers and charge you double even triple for books and courses!!!
I started at Everest Online this year. I'm a single working mother. I work a full time job that has rotating shifts. Fitting in a scheduled time to be in class was not an option for me. I have made the dean's list. My instructors always replied to my questions within a few hours. They were very supportive if I needed help. Their Student Services also helped me in areas that were not school related. I received calls to check up on me and to just say your doing a good job. Keep it up. The platform was easy to understand and access.
I am in the Nursing Program and I feel that this school is not equipped to teach Nursing students. I have had rough bad experience at this school, but im going to try to keep moving foward as much as possible bc ihave so many loans out its crazy. I would reccomend going with a school whos had Nursing Experience for 10 years or more.
The Nursing staff is okay but I feel that its too expensive and there not teaching what you need to know to graduate. for example there is a day program that is about to graduate they started with 30 students and now only have 18 graduating theres something wrong with that picture they should have there students ready and prepared to be an RN is what there goal should be. And if you want to come back you have to wait for another rotation if theres room. Meanwhile your stuck waiting and paying the bill.
I have been with Everest Online since May of 2010 and have always been on the A+ honor roll with a 3.67 GPA and let me tell you I have had more trouble out of this school than any other thing in my life period. It started out good where my advisors would call me and checkup on how I was doing it was going really well then all of a sudden I stopped getting phone calls I stopped getting help from my advisers then they started switching them in and out I am week 8 of 12 before I graduate and haven't heard from career services once.
I was promised an externship when I enrolled in school and a year later they changed the program and no longer offer them but I wasnt told until a year and half into my degree. If you are just starting i suggest you research more into local schools where you can get different grant money from your state paying $30K for this education is not worth it!
I just started Everest University Online and after reading so many bad reviews I want to put some things straight. I have always had contact with my advisors, and instructors and have had no problem.
I have yet to recieve my books and things but my class doesnt start until later this month so I am not worried about it. I just completed the orientation and I am very super happy with my choice. I am going for a business degree and will be continueing on for my bacholers degree and hopefull my masters.
Everyone putting down everest is simply not doing their part in furthering their education. I hope I see better reviews in the future and I will be reviewing everest in the future and I will be doing my part I love my choice and I am going to continue my choice and I am going to excel!
I am a stay at home mom and is almost 4 weeks into my online classes and this school is awesome. My administrators call me on a regular basis and emails me to. Also my financial rep helped me with every step to finishing the things i needed to get started.
My professors email me within 72hrs most of the time within 24hrs or less. Doing their classes online has been great with the schedule i have and you dont have to check in at a certain time but make sure you meet the weekly dead line. This school is awesome and im proud to say I am a student at EU.
Everest is a nationally accredited school. Most top- name colleges are regionally accredited and WILL NOT except ANY credit, but some will except a few and there. So if your applying to Everest and you want to go to Harvard next year, re-think it. However, if you do your homework there are some regionally accredited colleges that will accept nationally accredited credits. You just have to do your homework before enrolling.
Curriculm wasn't that hard. It was manageable for someone like me with kids, a husband and work. Most assignments are due in a week but they are generally never really hard so they can be whipped up in a few hours or so.
Staff at Everest was ok. I never really had a problem in this area. I did attend classed online and finished my degree. I even attended the graduation ceremony, which to my suprise was really nice. They had a huge ceremony and took professional pictures and everything.
I started school at Everest University Online (Nationally Accreditted University) October 2011 and I am in my last term, finishing up October 2012, as you can see, I finished with my associates degree in 1 year. Because my GPA was so high, I was able to take on as many classes in a single term that shortened my graduation date. The most I have taken at once was 8 classes. This also saved me a total of $16,000 as Everest university only charges one rate for tuition regardless of how many classes you take per term. This was awesome!.
I am now able to transfer my credits to other schools for instance, I am transferring my credits to Kaplan University (Regionally Accredited University) when I finsh in October. I failed to mention I am a mother of Twins, so what does that spell out for Everest University? Everest YOU ROCK!!!!!!
