Everglades University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (101)
This School is a joke. If you have ever been to a traditional junior college or University you will be able to see that this is truly a waste of time. School is suppose to be exciting and challenging in the learning curve but the admissions process and financial aid were more stressful than the actual program in general. And on top of all of it, It is very expensive to go hear. Do not waste your time there are many online programs this is not a top rated school. I am a current student so this is a accurate review not just a post from an upset student. In ten years of going to College never had to work so hard to get direct answers related to what I am doing. Which makes no sense being in another state trying to attend a online university. With financial aid, VA benefits ect, watch out!!!! This money is disbursed quite a bit differently than most colleges. So, don't expect to collect a good portion of financial aid that you are approved for. It all goes to school then you wait for the VA to disbursed their payments. Very different. The few staff members I have spoken with excluding one have been professional and courteous. But overall I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS SCHOOL TO ANYONE. Trust me.
I attended Everglades for the Master's in Aviation. I had previously attended ERAU for my Bachelor's but decided to attend Everglades based on the cost difference. The staff were just as experiences with several professors coming from a military or professional aviation background. The coursework and outcome met my expectations and I am happy to be an alumni.
Everglades University is an excellent university! President K. M. was an amazing mentor and inspiration, she helped me tremendously. I am so happy with my decision to go to EU. I would highly recommend this school. The staff and faculty were the best!!
Everglades University helped me to pursue my career as an alternative medicine practitioner. I found the courses to difficult, but the staff to be very helpful. After getting my degree, I now have the ability to achieve anything that stands in my way.
Everglades is the second online college that I have attended and Everglades has a really nice online interface. It is consistent between classes which is very helpful. I am majoring in Alternative Medicine (due to graduate may of 2017). Some of the classes feel a little basic and I saw some people complaining about that so let me explain. Yes, a few of the classes seem to be very quick, basic and easy. However, they are still informative and give you a good general feel for the particular class subject you are studying. Yes, you will have to pursue a higher degree if you want to have a big breakthrough in this field but that's the same with every medical background. The quality of the education here is something you have to work for to get your return. You can't expect to occasionally read the material and still pass the test with comprehension. If you want a good education, put in the work and it will pay off- don't just try to slide through. My one complaint is with Financial Aid. <-- Ya'll really need to get your act together. I feel sorry for the people who work in the financial aid office because from the other reviews I've read they are constantly changing out staff so that no one really knows what is going on. If you are thinking about attending Everglades you need to have your finances in order. As long as you can make a consistent, significant monthly payment (think $500+ with some scholarships) then yes, you will probably enjoy your experience here. Also, the class schedule goes year round which makes it so that you can only get federal financial aid for two consecutive semesters i.e. no fed. aid during the summer months. That really sucks if you're not prepared for it.
I've had a great experience so far. Going through the enrollment was stressful but the staff was a great help. All the teachers have been great and the courses well structured and challenging which is important to me. I see some negative reviews on but giving the school a thumbs up so far
Very disappointed with this school. Yes, the courses are fast paced. Yes, the instructors were very helpful. However, that's about where the benefits end. This school was horrible at helping me with financial aid. I was attempting to use my GI Bill and they had no one that had any clue about how it should be incorporated to pay for my courses. Instead, they pushed me into federal aid without explanation and didn't care how I paid for my courses, as long as I signed the paper. I take partial responsibility for the mess, but I have dealt with other colleges since and they are much more helpful in explaining to you the financial requirements and not pushing you into anything you don't understand. However, with this degree I am walking away with a 25K student loan that my GI Bill should have covered, but now can't. Also, I feel that the pace of the courses isn't conducive to truly learning a subject. I don't feel that the structure of the construction management program adequately prepared me. There wasn't a good capstone that focused on practical application of the information learned. It was just another longer paper about a topic in construction, not necessarily related to managing a construction project. I would not recommend this degree to anyone that doesn't have previous construction experience or someone that is not willing to start at the bottom rungs in this career field.
Yes it is expensive and yes it has some problems with frequent staff changes. Honestly though, I would not have been able to complete my education without EU. I am finally done and they are accredited, very important for an online school. This is a good school for military personnel or adult students that have much more to do than just attend classes.
Turn and run as far away and as fast as you can from this business. Everything anyone tells you at this business tells you is a lie or misrepresentation. They enrolled me in a class that had already started weeks prior. The online experience was just plain horrible. My instructed made excuses for late grading because he had other things to do. We I formally asked to withdraw they made up excuses why the normal withdraw policy wouldn't be honored. Then they turned it over to collections. it's no wonder the degree is not accepted countrywide.I wroye this review in hopes that others may read it and not make the same mistake I did.
I honestly have to say, my experience with Everglades was beyond great. After getting my Associates with another online college (not everglades) I was very apprehensive. However they handled everything with professionalism and ease. The admissions handled the transferring of my credits from my previous school and communicated with me every step of the way. The finance department walked me through my FAFSA, and even found me additional grants to help.I was registered in class with books in my hand, within 2 weeks. The instructors are very helpful and will work to get you where you need to be in class. But it wasn't without some work on my part. I had to put forth some effort in order to get positive results. Thank you for everything.
