"Oh man.. oh man.. Where do I begin... I know for a fact everyone that has gone to this school has seen the disgusted look they get when a potential employer hears you are an Everest graduate. They cringe. I got lucky that the Dr. I worked for (Externship) wanted to help re-educate me. He trained me more in a month than all the training I got in school. I was never able to work for any other facility other than the one where I Externed. I then got frustrated and started looking for any sort of job. (Not in the medical field) I worked for multiple attorneys over these last 4-5 years and now work for a Title Company in Downtown Los Angeles. Where I am now is a great job and opportunity for advancement is tremendous. I plan to stay in this industry. I am still in debt to Everest. Yes I know... 5 years later. Honestly, I am taking care of it now BUT reluctantly. I know its my name and my credit and all of that BUT I hate that I have to pay for an education I never received. I have many regrets in my life but Everest is definitely in my top 5. I would not recommend this school to anyone. Please do your research and find yourself a honest college, that is TRULY interested in YOUR success. God Bless"

"Stay away from Everest. All they want is money. I didn't even finish my program because I felt like I was not getting the right education. They still call and ask if I'd like to finish and all they get is an earful. No apologies. They say that they'll help with payments. Ha what a joke. They do not care about anyone. Stay away from this place."

I Hate This College. Do Not waste your money!! - 9/26/2014
Degree: Medical Office Administration
Graduation Year: 2010
"My first week attending the school wasn't what I expected but my instructor talked me into staying the whole 8 months. They told me that I was going to learn a lot , get a great job after I finished. My instructor didn't Know much she stayed on facebook majority of the time while we got on the computers and learned things on our own dealing with a medi soft program. during the lecture hour she joked and talked about sex majority of the time. she didn't know how to spell or explain things to us, some of the students in the class knew more than she did. We all got 4.0 gpa in that class she didn't really care if we knew the information or not. I tried to enroll into another College so I asked them for my transcript and they didn't have that they only gave us a grading scale. Once I graduated they did help me find a job but I was making less money than what I was making at my other job before I started going to college. Its very hard to find a job in Medical Administrative Assistant especially if you are an Everest College student...I should have left when I had a chance before I got myself in all of that debt. Most of my classmates are in the same situation that I'm in. Some are still CNA's like they were before going to Everest College or went back to their old jobs. I hate Everest College!!"

"Worst school ever,never have I seen so many untrained individuals.They make mistakes and the student suffer from them. They only say sorry, but the mistakes continue. They have no consequences when they mess up. You can't do much about it because your're an online student. This is my last semester and then I will transfer."

"Save your time your money and your right to a real education do not go to this school. From the moment you call them to inquire about their programs the harassment and mind games begin. Once they have your number they don't stop calling it doesn't matter if you tell them to stop, or say that you changed your mind no excuse or valid reason matters to them they will keep calling until they get you either so mad you change your number or you end up going to a "campus" for one of their tours. What a joke that your will be, let's start with the fact that your going to inquire about an education not buying a car, that's exactly how I felt. The tour consisted of their representative walking me around the small campus and showing me their "state of the art" computerised boards which to me wasn't all that impressive and what reminded me of a car sales person was when she begin to tell me how the rooms are carpeted and have professional office style leather seats and all classrooms are air conditioned, I thought to myself this seemed very odd for a college tour but i remained optimistic. I quickly noticed the women who worked downstairs in their admissions office quite outnumber the amount of men working there in addition to the fact that they all are dressed in a very sexually driven manner , I thought I was going to a college yet to me it appeared to be a strip club almost. The teachers there are unprofessional , you won't learn in these classes or be challenged to learn rather you will be given the bare minimum amount of work with a lot of mindless chatter , movies and games in class. I know some people will say that's awesome less work except what happens then when those students go into the work force unprepared for what lies before them. This school is purely a business they don't care about the students and it's all about making money. While there I seen tons of people come and go including staff. Save your money go to a junior college or anywhere but Everest. Oh and by the way they have a department called career services it's the biggest joke the interviews and job leads they offer come directly from craigslist and monster jobs. They have no job leads or contacts unless your referring to temp agencies which you can do yourself and save yourself the headache of this school."

"Everest and Cor. online are not good schools, I would not recommend them to my enemy. After asking my course instructors many questions about the course, I got sick of getting the same copy and paste answer, refer to your course material. Sometimes I would ask different questions and get the same copy and paste answers. I actually started asking my high school teacher for help because the Everest instructor was no help. I also was promised the work was at my pace and I could turn in work at any time during the 12 week term, only that was not the case the instructors were making the rules and deciding what was graded and how much to take off for assignments. Not all instructors were bad but none of them were on the same page, there were different rules for each class, I just feel after 72 credited hours of hard learning that I was doing more work teaching me than my college that promised so much was teaching me. I have taken screen shots of students coping and pasting my work in class discussions and the Instructor say, "excellent work!", This would make so angry some times. Then they sent out letters saying they were raising tuition 5 % and books were now going to be Electronic Books, SO you mean to tell me that a E Book cost more than a Paper back book with shipping and handling and printing and you want me pay more for something that is not real? I did not sign up for a school who raises tuition half way threw a bachelors, changes from paper books to e books with any warning( If I wanted E books I would just get on Google books.) I got three weeks into a term without even knowing that the school changed to E books. I had to call the school and ask them where my books were. They told me, "we changed our policy and we use E - Books now it should be in your student user interface. They did this with out any warning. Like a said I would not wish this on my enemy. Also course instructors make discussions based on race, religion and base opinions not from a education stand point but from a what ever they fell like or believe stand point."

Degree: Medical Assistant

"This school is nothing. They are full of lies and have you paying all this money and dont even help you with any jobs afterwards. But they constantly blow up your phone and expect you to pay. How can i pay if i have no job in the field i went to school for. This school is very poor and should be shut down. They lie way too much. Constantly changing the pay of your tuition and etc. I wouldnt recommend this school to anyone! I would tell them to run and never look back!"

"IN 2012 I ATTENDED EVEREST COLLEGE ONTARIO CALIFORNIA AND SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED THE MASSAGE THERAPY PROGRAM. AS AN OLDER ADULT THE EXPERIENCE THERE WAS WELCOMING A TRUE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT WITH A WIDE ARRAY OF AGES. AFTER DISCOVERING THAT THIS FIELD LIMITED ME AS A SINGLE PARENT WITH HOURS AND DAYS OF THE WEEK, I DECIDED TO RETURN EVEREST AND TAKE THE MEDICAL BILLING AND CODING PROGRAM. MY CURRENT INSTRUCTOR IS AMAZING SHE IS HELPFUL AND PATIENT AS THE ENVIRONMENT IS EVER CHANGING. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS COLLEGE TO ANYONE LOOKING FOR A SHORT TERM SCHOOL GOAL FOR A LIFETIME OF EXPERIENCE."
