Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2012
"I started my course in 2012 as a PSW, My teacher was amazing!!! I joined in ambassador program it helps my self esteem and I gained more confident. This course helped me a lot. I am so proud that I choose Everest College for my career course. During my days, months in the campus I was eager to learn new things every single day. I was motivated by my teacher Ms J I owe my success from her. One month before my graduation I got HIRED as a PSW at Leisureworld and Elginwood both Long term Care facility. I graduate after 6-8 months with HONOURS and I'm so proud of it."

"Wow you shouldnt go to this school. Teachers are nice but the office is another thing... I was enrolled in for 2 months and they had my transcript for 2 months and after 2 days in school and nights of homework they said I couldnt attend with no compassion. I asked my student rep that because I havent passed that taks test of thats ok and he said he would ask and he never said anything so I assumed it was great and now 2 months later and 2 days after class later they kick me out. WASTE OF TIME ita ridiculous and dissapointing DONT GO HERE its all about money onced your enrolled they dont care."

"Where should I start? I commuted 126 miles a day, was a student coach, had a 3.79 gpa and hardly ever missed school. Now I have a loan, I can't get a job, because no one wants to hire someone without experience. NO ONE! I've had over 15 interviews in 2 mos that I felt a connection with the interviewer and they always say I had a great interview and they'd call me right back. And never do.. But when the loan comes due, they will want some sort of payment. My case worker is supposed to work on finding interviews or line ups, and I really don't think she even found 1 business to apply to. I would never go here again, and can only warn people there are just so many medical assistant jobs out there. You can have all the schooling you want, but in the end if you don't have at least 2 yrs experience to go with it, its a moot point. Good luck"

"Ok so I honestly have just started this program but I found the people nice and helpfull...yes kinda annoying when you are not interested (like me in 2012) but I have 7 month twin daughters and I work full time so to be able to go back to college and I know it sounds like the tv ads but to work around my busy schedule is a blessing and honestly even if the degree isn't a huge step at least I'm back in college and that's what's important right now for me and my family"

"So here is my experience. Everest did help me. It gave me a place to work and study for my certifications and the teachers where able to help me while I did that. I graduated with high honors and walked away from my computer program with 4 certifications. I got a job in my industry after school. But here is the problem with Everest. It is not a real college. I had three teachers that taught all the modular classes. Only one of the three teachers actually taught the class. For example in my Computer Hardware class. My teacher gave us the book and set a time table that said what to read and when to turn in the assignments. Now after that first day the teacher literally sat on his computer and looked at email and facebook ever day while we just read the books. He was there to answer any questions but he NEVER taught the class. Every once in a while a he would get a peer review on the teacher. I feel like my teachers had planned curriculum only for when these this happened. As soon as the other teacher sat down and started taking notes he would finally stand up and go to the chalk board and go over something relevant to the class. The classes were easy to get A's so I spent a lot of time prepping for certifications. I new that I would not have a shot at a job with only a diploma from this school. If you use your time well and set your goals high I believe you can make this program work for you. The education given to you by the school is not great and for the amount of money you are paying this school is a complete ripoff. Anyone going into this school should understand that it is not a high quality education."

"Do not even mention that you might be interested in Everest College. They have been calling me like 10000 time a day even after I told them I am no longer interested in Everest College. Caused me a lot of troubles at work due to those constant annoying calls. I think they are doing so bad so they just literally hunt for every single person"

"It is a rip-off. I am still paiding on my student loan and I have nothing to show for it. I am still in a dead end job. The job placement only helped me for one month. The counselor made it sound like I wouldn't have any trouble getting a job. What a lie. Everywhere I went wanted me to have 2 years of experience. It isn't worth what you pay for it. I regret going and wasting all that money!!!!!! How I would like to get my money back. The instructor was great,but not worth it."

"I can't get my books because I owe $36... I went and sold last semesters book at a store across town for way under cost just to get $35 for them... so I could make a payment... then I go back to my school & they wont take cash. I dont fuck with bank so I dont have checks or a debit card. That's the only forms of payment they accept. So I began calling around & couldn't find no one to help me. So I asked administrators to help & got nothing. One even put me off onto someone else like he didn't give s fuck. And of course that person couldn't help me either. Its fucked up when someone is trying to better themselves its like everything else trust to knock you down. Once your enrolled the school could care less about u..."
