Everest University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (220)
I recently graduated from Everest with a B.S. degree in Business Marketing, I had the desire to get my Masters from them as well...this is where the problems started. When speaking to my advisor I was told "no problem" but once I graduated I was told I had a balance of almost $10,000, not a word of it before graduatation. I was told than that my "new Loan" would cover this and my masters as well..ok I'm still interested.
I was than told that my GPA was .5 a point to low for the Masters program, I suggested that I retake a class I had failed and I had wondered why I was not informed my GPA was in trouble, State school put you on probation until it improves. I was told to just take the GMAT . I recieved no mpratical help in finding a acreer, a job for $10 hr is not a career and it does not pay for a 4 year degree. My advise is STAY AWAY!!!!!
I wish I copuld talk to anyone wanting to further there education and tell them to Not go to Everest. I cannot even get financial aid to return my calls, they just turned me to a collection agency while I was speaking to them about solutions. Average education and very shady in there practices.
I have been attending this school for a,most 2 years at the time of this review. Every time I have ever had a problem, I received help in a timely manner.
The staff is great and the classes were fun. I would be more than glad to attend another course if they offered anything else I was interested in. I graduate with honors in January 2013, if the school wasn't great, how could I do that? I couldn't.
I went here years ago for a short time. I called them back to finish up my two year degree, they replied " you already have a degree".I ask them since I have a degree, can you place me with a job, they replied "no, you dont currently attend here" I called back to follow up about the degree, they replied " My Bad, you dont have a degree". Not professional at all! I would not recommend this college.
This school will be the perfect pick for a full-time mother that has to work and other obstacles in your life. I have been attending this school for 2 years now and just finished for my Associates in Criminal Justice. I am currently going back for my Bachelors in Criminal Justice. All the bad and negative reviews are a joke because I believe those are the ones that really need to take a better look in the mirror. Education is education, this is not high school, so that being said "Be Grown" and stop blaming others that are trying to help you expand your knowledge. If is was a joke or scam they would not receive any government funds as far as financial aid such as Fafsa or you wouldn't be able to claim the student status when doing your taxes. Everest is not about money because I have not been contacted one time about money. I have had all types of job requests but I want to continue my education for my family and I.
Everest University you are the best!
I really enjoyed my time at everest university online. Now i have a great job i love :)
First off, take a closer look at the individuals posting negative reviews about this school. NONE of them can even spell correctly! Second of all this is my fourth year at Everest Online and I will receive my Bachelor's in Criminal Justice in January. I have had no problems whatsoever with this school.
I always received my checks on time and the courses were wonderful. The instructors (most of them) are very helpful and I thoroughly enjoyed my 4 years with Everest. Ive maintained the President's List the entire time I have been with Everest. The course are easy to understand and follow.
I am still attending this school and it is a great school and if you need help they give you all the help they can. I never get calls for money and when i call they never bring up money they help me through everything i have needed so far.
I went to this school in 2012 and i gradeuated on July 14 2012 so i been out of school for about a year now and still they cant find me a job.. All they do is call me about money money money.. I am so over it.. I didnt go to school jus to give them money.. I went to school to be a Medical Assistant not fork out money.. So please do not go to this school its a joke believe me...
I have been attending Everest for about 2 years now. I haven't run into an problems that would change my opinion about the school, just some of the people they employ. Overall, I have got a lot of help form this school, the instructors and the other employees that I've talked with.
I have been to two other colleges other than Everest and Everest fits my very busy life extremely well. When I call for a simple question, the people I talk to are very friendly and helpful. I am attending to obtain my Bachelors in Criminal Justice and I feel that I am getting my moneys worth. I have noticed that the more time and effort i put into learning not just about the course i am taking but also by asking about my future career choices etc, the better the experience has been for me and those who i've recommended to the school as well.
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.
