RED FLAGS. EVERYWHERE! PLEASE. RESEARCH FOR YOURSELF BEFORE YOU. WASTE YOUR TIME AND SPREAD. THE WORD SO. OTHERS KNOW AS WELL! THIS SCHOOL PREYS ON MILITARY GI BILLS! THIS DEGREE IS NOT APPLICABLE TO ANYTHING ELSE IN ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE. IF YOU INTEND IN FORGETTING YOUR CAREER, YOU'LL FIND YOURSELF AT A COMMUNITY COLLEGE TAKING MORE CLASSES, SINCE THE SINCE CLASSES DO NOT COUNT AS THERE ARE NO LABS SET UP. HOW CAN YOU OFFER A DEGREE IN SCIENCE/MEDICINE AND NOT HAVE LABS SET UP. I NOW HAVE TO WASTE 2 MORE YEARS BEFORE I AM ABLE TO ATTEND MED SCHOOL. THIS IS A HORRIBLE BUSINESS, IT'SNOT A SCHOOL.
Very BAD faculty in Health Sciences... i.e., the lady who taught Nutrition was bad news. Very inexperienced teacher and mentally challenged, in my opinion. She is on the EU faculty roster and should not be. Can't believe that they keep her on and allow her to teach more courses. Online Master's in Human Nutrition from Podunk University and a Bachelor's in General Business from a community college with no outstanding grades. I wonder why they would employ a sub-par teacher if they are concerned about the quality of their education and their reputation. She alone will bring the school's reputation down in Sarasota.
I had found out that it was difficult to find a secure job after graduating so wanted to transfer to nursing and Anatomy 1&2 credits were not transferable and had to be taken again and FASA does not pay for the the same clsses twice so I was stuck paying out of pocket or getting a private loan to continue before nursing program began which set me back additional 4 months. Now was told because I withdrew I owed more money. Rip off. Go to a state college, its cheaper with same or better education.
Waste of time and money! Unprofessional administration, lack of quality professors, they don't care for a students, just for a money! High turnover...4 Deans in one year!!! Schools like this should not be allowed to be in business as they do not benefit the students!!!
I have attended Everglades University in Orlando for a couple of months. My initial plan was not really related to the program so I transferred to somewhere else. First I will list the positive aspects of the school: for me, everyone was very nice and knowledgable. The financial aid representative was very helpful and also, he knew how to help me. The professors are top notch and they are highly educated. I enjoyed all of my classes while I was attending and I gained a lot of knowledge, too. Now I will go to the negative aspect: first of all, not all the negative aspects are the faults of the school that I will mention: students are rude, disrespectful and usually late. I cannot learn in an environment where professors are not putting any discipline in the classroom. I had classmates who were constantly late on Saturdays (we start at 9 am and the person arrived after lunch..) if you say you want to attend classes on Wednesdays and Saturdays that means you have the time on those days and you dedicate yourself fully to be on time and participate on class. Yet, these students still got their attendance points (probably due to the fact that if they don't reach their attendance points the financial aid would be denied...) still I don't believe this is a good policy towards other students. It is understandable that sometimes you cannot attend or you have something urgent to do, but not every single time.. I didn't feel that school provided me with a lots of challenges, the professors are not that strict and the studying materials are also not that much. So you can easily get a good grade. On the other hand, when I wanted to transfer I tried UCF first, and they did not transfer my credits from Everglades saying that the institution is in a different accreditation. My problem was mostly that the Alternative Medicine program is a well chosen major, with a little bit of everything in it, (little chiropractor, acupuncture, nutrition...) and basically, any of them is not enough to stand by alone. If you want to be a nutritionist, you cannot do it only with this degree. I would recommend the school just for the knowledge.
