Everest University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (218)
Registering at this school was one of the worst mistakes I have ever made!! Not only do I owe 10,000 dollars in student loans for credits i cant use ANYWHERE that is worth anything i wasted almost two years of my life with them. All the online classes are is a easy way for them to make money off people and not do anything in return.
If you need to get in contact with them about anything besides registering you can forget it. It took me two months to get them to send my transcripts to me. Unless you are giving them money you will not see any type of customer service.
This school is terrible. The teachers do not take part in the discussion but just have "canned" responses that they post to make it look like they are doing something, when they are really doing nothing. If you have to contact anyone else in the school, good luck. No one will answer your emails or return your phone calls. You are on your own.
This school is nationally accredited which means you are very limited as to who will accept this education. Even Everest employment ads for teachers require a degree a degree from a REGIONALLY accredited institution. Hypocrisy much? They will lie to you, they lie to all their students. Don't go here.
There is no feedback from the instructors and I never received a response to any email I sent whether it was to an instructor or administration or student services.
The curriculum itself is fine, but the quality of instruction is incredibly poor. This company lacks integrity. I have dropped out of the program and I have enrolled in a legitimate school that is NOT "for profit" like EUO.
I am so super dissatisfied with this school I do not know what to do!!!!!!! I can just scream, reading some other post I was told the school did not supply laptops!!!!!! I too was told as long as work was completed before sat I would not have to worry about grades!!! Have the students and professor hardly participated. Student services and the enrollment department, enrolled me onto the wrong programs three times.
I just found out I will not graduate with my bachelors degree in business management, I will only have my associates which I did nit sign up for. No one helped straighten this out and cared less that they dropped the ball!!!!!! I can go on and on about this crappy school and wish I could sue them for misleading me and wasting years of my time!!!!!
I would just like to say I really have enjoyed my first year with Everest. The faculty and Professor's have been excellant!!!
I beg to differ about everyone holding a 4.0 I have held A's,and B's ith a 3.6 and his was studying my heart out.I finish my first year in July 2012, Online learning is not easy by far, It is very fast paced and you must keep up the pace as not to fall behind.I have had to contact financial aid a few times, but actually the delay was that the money was not received as expected.
My plan is to graduate, I am very pleased with my accomplishments so far. This is not my first online experience.. warning stay away from Argosy..expensive and the staff lack, lack, lack is all I can say..In my eye's Everest is the best!!!
I am a current student at Everest Online University and I have had so many problems with this school its ridiculous.
They told me before I started that I could get online when ever I had the time as long as my work was completed before Saturday at midnight but if I am unable to get online one day I receive irritating e-mails and phone calls non stop until the next time I get online. I started in February this year and today is April 3rd and I have yet to receive an overage check for my student loans.
I do not go to college for the money but I plan on using that to pay my bills so I can continue to go to college. Every time I call the finical department they give me a different excuse every time. Today the excuse was "We are still waiting on finical aide to disburse us the money." What I don't understand is how I am receiving my book and attending school if they have not received my finical aide! It is near impossible to get a straight answer from anyone at that school. I wish I would have done my research a lot better than what I did.
Take it from me...NOT WORTH IT! Do your research very well before you get stuck in a situation like mine. Do not attend this school! They do not care about their students. They just use nice words to try to bribe you.
For example, I was told before I enrolled that they will GIVE you a laptop whether you graduate or not it's yours but once I received my laptop I also received a nice little letter with the laptop stating that if I drop out or not graduate for what ever the reason may be I will have to return the laptop or I will have to pay for it. The laptop also was full of viruses when I received it. Please take your time and do your research.
I just love the virtual world of higher learning via Everest University Online. I've developed distinct capabilities that I am now using to grow my own business. My interactions were all positive. I feel happy to have been afforded such an amazing opportunity.
The very many chalenges I faced throughout my studies of 2 and 1/2 years was conquered with hard work and diligence. I graduated with a 3.79 gpa, honors Magna Cumlaude. I am an Everest Ambassador As well I am a member and officer of The National Society of Collegiate Scholars, Everest Chapter. My time at Everest has been amazing.
I graduated the top of my class in 20** (Bachelor in Business Administration) with a 4.0 GPA. I even received the award for "Most Outstanding Graduate in BBA". When I tried to transfer my credits to "REGIONALLY ACCREDITED" institutions to further my education, they DO NOT ACCEPT EVEREST CREDITS.
I take full responsibility because I did not do my research into its credentials. Now I am stuck with having to pay back student loan for a degree that is only worth the paper it's on.
PLEASE BE AWARE!!! This is a "MONEY" school. Please, don't be a victim to this so-called "University".
It seems to me that everyone has had a different experience whether it was negative or positive,real or fake. Well I can assure you my post is real. I am currently attending EUO and have been for almost a year now nearing completion for my AS in Medical Insurance Billing and Coding. The only thing that I don't really care for is that I still won't qualify to sit in front of the board and take the test to become registered, certified, or any others that normally come with it.
I'm kind of disappointed that I will only be walking away with my AS in this field as I was really looking forward to not only holding a degree but a certification to go along with it. I haven't had any problems with financial aide, student services, etc. as my experience in these areas has been good including the instructors.
After reading the many posts that I have, I am definetely keeping my eyes open as I would really hate to get to the graduation point and not be able to do so because they will claim I owe money or something as well as not be able to obtain my transcripts should I need them in the future or just for my records.
So anywho, like I said after reading the many posts, I will most definetely keep my eyes and ears open and cross that bridge when it comes.
I wish I had done research on this school before I enrolled almost two years ago. Beware for the following:
1) Not all undergraduate schools require 96 credits to get a degree. DO YOUR RESEARCH! It should take you anywhere from 60-68 credits to get your required degree.
2) They offer nonsense courses. I'm going for my associate degree. Aside from the normal classes -- Business Management, Finance, Accounting, Composition -- what other schools give you "Strategies for Success," "Career Skills & Portfolio Management," and "Basic Computer Applications?" Really?! Those classes won't even transfer to another school!
3) Student Services are not very knowledgeable. Any student who threatens to leave, the first thing they scream is, "You may jeopardize your financial aid." They're worried they won't get any more money.
Although I liked some of my instructors, do yourself a favor and try a school that's near your hometown. They're not worth it.
