Degree: Criminal Justice/Law Enforcement Administration

I am completely satisfied with my experience at Everest. Since the beginning I have been treated with respect and genuine care. I am very sorry for everyone else that had horrible experiences. My instructors are amazing and give very good feedback to all of my work and the classes are challenging. They are great school to attend if you are military affiliated, they have a wonderful scholarship for military students. You have to make sure that you have a B average to keep the scholarship. My student representative calls me about every 2-3 weeks to make sure that I am comfortable in my classes, to make sure my grades are good, and to ask if I need anything. I appreciate the phone calls because it makes me feel like they really care. I would absolutely recommend this online school to a friend or family member.

Degree: Medical Insurance Specialist/Medical Biller
Graduation Year: 2012

Worst school ever beware they advertised how they care but they don't!! I graduated 2012 and no employer trusts their education I didn't receive any help from their school what so ever. It's like once you graduate they erase you snd no one calls from anyone. I am nearly 40,000 in debt because they frequently increase the tuition yearly! Everest will sell you a dream but don't be foolish. A year later I enrolled in a community colleges and Everest University are non transferable because no accredited school trusts their education. Please beware and do not attend this university! If you are already enrolled my advice would be to find a local college or university near your home and leave Everest ASAP!! You will pay 3 times more at Everest then you will at your local college!!

Degree: Law

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.

Degree: Business Administration, Management and Operations, Other

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?

Degree: Criminal Justice/Police Science

I am currently enrolled in Everest University online for the Criminal Justice Program. Other than sometimes having a hard time getting a hold of student services, I have no problems whatsoever. My classes are great, as well as my instructors, and If i need help, it is available to me immediately. Student services and the financial department has been extremely helpful, like i said, sometimes it is just hard to get a hold of them. I got my books on time, I am getting my laptop on time, and I'm doing great in all of my classes. I honestly do not understand where all these negative reviews are coming from. If you work hard, you will succeed and find a job. Don't rely on just Everest to just find you a job, get up and do it yourself. For the record, no I'm not an Everest employee.  Believe it or not, there on students that are doing well here and have no complaints.

Degree: Dental Assisting/Assistant
Graduation Year: 2011

Well since my goal is to be a dentist, I guess by having my dental assistant degree I will be able to earn a lot of experience in different aspects of the dental field while I'm attending college and working my way thru dental school. This will open many doors because i will have a big knowledge of my career and i will be able to provide my best service to all my future patients.

Degree: Computer Animation

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.

Degree: Business, Management, Marketing, and Related Support Services, Other
Graduation Year: 2011

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!

Degree: Medical Insurance Coding Specialist/Coder
Graduation Year: 2013

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?

Degree: Pharmacy Technician

This is the worst place ever. It really is a joke. All this place cares about is your money. The teachers don't teach you anything at all. They just hand you some papers then they just sit down behind their computer for the rest of the time checking their facebook. Most all of the students have complained that they are not learning anything but nothing has been done. Some of the students are currently transferring to another place. Including me!!!Please don't waste your time and money at Everest, it really does Suck!!
