Everest University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (221)
My program was very hard and it required a lot of focus. I am very pleased with my knowledge I received from my professors, because most of them were either in the field of study or teaching at other colleges and universities. This program give me an opportunity to expand up my writing skills and to focus on being responsible whether in a classroom setting or online. However, it is more difficult to stay focus when working on line. The criminal justice masters program is a great program, but requires a lot of time and effort. Everest is just as good or even greater than any other college. The materials and lesson mirrors other major universities. Hard work pays off.
Teacher is always late or never shows up. We were told the school material/information we were being taught was outdated as of 2013 and we were in 2015. They stopped our course of study so they can revamp it and we won't get the new material. We have a student that comes to the school with her child and sits in the library and not in class and stills get credit for coming to school while others have to pay for daycare. We basically teach each other. I have voiced my concerns and followed the chain of command and nothing has been done. At times am not learning anything and would like this to be taken seriously and some of us sacrifice a lot to come to school and would like to get a discount because for what I have paid on tuition is not worth what I have or am receiving from school. My entire class feels the same way and wanted to express our concerns. My next step is the Dean as they have finally put one in place. Concern Student!!!!!
This school is more worried about the money than the students. Most schools allow you to choose your classes but, when you go online, they pick your classes. If you fail them you still pay the same amount for them even if you have the books. Student advisers changes every few months sometimes weeks. $50.000 + and I ended up dropping out because I spent more money trying to pass classes than getting my degree. SAVE YOUR MONEY DONT GO TO THIS SCHOOL!!
I am attending Everest University online. When i started out i was going for my Associates degree for Criminal Justice but they changed it to where you have to get a Bachelor's degree for my field. I have to have 192 credits for this college to get a degree. I am currenlty at 86 credits and owe 35,000.00 in student loans. I still have nine terms left to get my degree, Why i am still there is because 60% of the schools that i have contacted won't take credits from the college, 30% of the schools i contacted will only take between 8 - 24 credits and the 10% of the other schools or more expansive. The only good thing that the new company took over them is it decreased the tuition a little. Instructors is OK. The ad visors and student aid reps don't help at all. They lie. They don't contact you if there is a problem and when you call them if there is a problem you get the run around. According to there policy they are suppose to email or cal you back with in 72 hours of your email or phone call. I emailed my student adviser and program lead and student aid rep two weeks later.. NO RESPONSE>> Find a different college.
It was great I learned a lot at Everest and now I am working towards my Bachelor's in business management To the future students here at Everest they make everything easy for you to understand such as how the online classroom is setup my 3 year is so advance he can work the classroom. Everest walk you through all the steps it take to get you enrolled in school. Don't get me wrong it's a few things Everest could work on for example giving students debit cards for our financial aide money, and they also could give us picture ID badges like other online schools. But overall Everest is a great school to attend.
This is the worst place in the world. First they rip you off, you cant find a job because you went to Everest (they got shut down) and if your lucky you might get an education from some of your instructors. I learned that when I went into a real medical office I didnt learn anything. The teacher just wanted to talk all day instead of teach. Now Im 20,000 in debt and have no skills to go work as a Medical Assistant. If you are thinking bout going to this school DONT pic a different school to go to. I have friends that have gone to other schools and there are good schools out there and you can get a good education from those. They dont cost as much either and you actually get jobs. I HATE EVEREST!! DONT DO IT!!!!
DO NOT ATTEND THIS SCHOOL I went here when it was National Institute of Technology, then they changed the name. The Degree are all worth crap.. true you may find a job but that's because they see you have more than a h.s education. I had to learn the hard way that the only real way to get a degree is to attend a real college. and going to a community college then transferring to a University will be wayyyyyy cheaper always!!!!! 28,000 of debt is not work a 18-24 mont program!!! TRUST ME!!!!! PLEASE PLEASE DONT WASTE YOUR TIME> Attended NYU... he told me no real school/career recognizes these degrees it should be illegal for them to even call them a degree.. tried to go to Wayne state and applied to two community colleges and the all said the same thing..... It took me til I was 28 to realize... I have to go to a real darn school I'll be graduating from USF in December of 2016 and no one even recon. The fact I went to this dam school.. Hope they give me loan forgiveness.
I would like to let everyone know EVEREST never go there , I was in my 8th month and the school literally got shut down they didn't inform us or nothing that it could of happened. They waited until Sunday to email us. It's a FRAUD ! Don't get me wrong we had some good instructors but as of them shutting down like that with over 200 students was dead wrong. If you attend a Everest most likely it's going to get shut down.
The studies in the degree I was going for did not pertain to what I wanted or needed, the faculty and student advisers are just as worthless as the curriculum they have for the degrees they offer. Their classes are very remedial and very little, if anything, you learn will give you the tools you need or provide the training you need to get the career you want. Their biggest selling point is the number of people that get a degree and that you need a degree to show potential employers...I say that its important to have the right training so that you can be a useful resource for potential employers...With very little effort and research you can find the same classes and training they offer at very little or no cost to you...do not enroll at Everest, they are only concerned with making a profit not your education and it shows on their site and software...if you can cover the cost of attending this school, you would be better off putting this money in an IRA or purchasing a house because you would just be throwing this money away for absolutely nothing.
I attend Everest University online for my bachelors and Master degree. Most people attend online classes believing that it would be easier than sitting in a class. Well people it is not. Financial aid is not part of the school. The school it self is good and one must read, study and complete all courses. I noticed how people submit late, do not complete the assignment that was requested and do not check their work. One can not think they are going to past if they do not complete the required work given, at times I wanted to cry because the work was hard but school is not easy it was designed to make a person read, gain knowledge and understand the work. Please do not blame the school blame your efforts in what you put into the school. I had the same issue with financial aid and there is no communication with financial aid and the school. The school submits what is required financial aid is support to calculate and keep accurate information on each student. I have learned a lot from just reading and asking questions, that is what school is about.
