Everest University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (224)
This school makes it seem like they are setting you up so success but it's all a scam. I was liked to from the beginning, told I would get a bachelor's degree in 1.5 years. I fell for it and signed up, that's when they told me it was actually an associates and it would take 2 years. My student advisor repeatedly ignored my request to take as many classes as possible so I could graduate as early as possible and there were some semesters I would only take one class. 3 years later i finally finished my final semester just to be told, oh yeah we forgot you have to take one more class to graduate and you'll have to pay $1700 cash since one class isn't covered by financial aid. I took the class, paid the money and was told I was .02 gpa shy of the requirements to graduate and I would need to take more classes. After 3 years and $20K I finally had enough and dropped out. This school is a scam and their degrees are worthless,none of your credits transfer and they'll probably cancel your program before you graduate.
I have attended the Orlando campus for three years and I can say that completing my degree here is the best decision I ever made. The staff are willing to go beyond what other schools do to make sure students are successful. I have learned valuable information in my classes which is preparing me for my career. I have grown as a person by attending school here, and I recommend Everglades University to anyone - especially if you have to work and go to school at the same time.
I started at Everglades about seven years ago with my Bachelors and I never been more proud. They always went above and beyond my expectations, classes are small which make instructor focus on you. The education, training, and faculty staff are always there for you, before during and even after graduation. Thanks to my degrees and the support from Everglades I am getting lots of really good job opportunities that I know I would have received without Everglades.
They are awful to deal with. I was told I was going to graduate, they even sent graduation documents out and to my student loans. Then told I had more classes before I could graduate. Then the class I needed wasn't offered, so they dropped me. I went to re-enroll and they "don't offer the masters program anymore". So basically I got screwed out of all of my money and my credits, because if I am to transfer to another school they only allow you to transfer about 9 credits. This school is awful.
Well after attending 2 major universities, I decided to give N.I.T a try in 2005. When I went to enroll, they made everything sound so great and exciting. They made all these big promises about finding a job, and if I could not find one on my own, they would help me. About 1/2 through the degree program, is when it changed names to Everest Institute. I graduated on Sept 28, 2007 with my Associates degree, only later to find out I paid OVER $15,000 for a piece of paper that mean absolutely NOTHING in the real world. Was told any credits I earned would also be transferable to any in state college. WRONG! I later found out they were not even accredited! About 2-3 years after I graduated they ended up closing the school in my area. This coming September will make 10 years since I graduated and never once has my degree helped me get a job, or has any job recognized it. I still owe them around $10,000 for NOTHING but a waste of time. I even felt like I started the course with the exact same knowledge I started with. Save yourself time and MONEY and go to a REAL school, and not this fly by night school!
My first year at Everest was great. I felt like I was accomplishing my goals. Even though the fees were pretty high I continue with a grade point average of 3.2. Now when the second year came around, I was enrolled in the Accounting class and was leave without any help to take the class due to technical issues. And like I found out from others they just passed you around pretending to be helpful but never getting anything solved. Oh did i mention; I was never able to get in touch with my instructor after calling, email and chat. Do go to this school at all. If you ignore the reviews you will be sorry, just like I am.
Hello, My name is Donald. I started Everest University back in 2013 to get my Associates Degree in Criminal Justice, However under the old Corporate Office the school wasn't that great they say I owe them money when I didn't and they charge outrages for tuition of almost 475.00 per credit hour it seemed like. Now, Everest gotten rid of the Associates degree program and kept the bachelors degree program I continued and Now since the new cor prate office took over it seems like it's a lot better. The tuition is cheaper, I haven't had to many problems with the instructors, student service advisers etc, Now, the only complaint I have is that if they can get better accreditation then what they have because there is some schools that i wanted to transfer to won't accept there credits or only accept some of them. I haven't gotten my degree yet but everything is looking good for me getting it really soon... :) will I come back.... Possibly
After participation Inside of Associate's degree program toward Business Management. I've made the decision to continue my education with Everest, toward my Bachelor's degree in "Business Administration." Different aspects within the challenge of your journey can make itself present. Within my own experience toward receiving an education with Everest has been fulfilled. Rather or not a career will present itself still remains to be seen.
I started of in the associates program maintained a 4.0 and got my degree. I proceeded into the bachelors program and it continued to ride smooth. It was getting close to graduation and they decided to send me a email stating that I pay them 5,000 dollars before April 22, 2016 or they will expel me. My world was crushed. They advised me to pay 1,500 dollars and they will put me in the next term. While they were getting money out of me, they did not tell me until it was time to enroll again that they were not teaching this class no more. They did not even give me the courtesy to tell me that I will not be able to enroll in the August 22nd term. Never again this school should even have the privilege to be on tv lying to people. They take our money and then throw you to the wolves.
I study medical billing & coding, I really enjoyed this course. So after I completed and graduated in 2013, I decided to pursue another degree in a different subject. A year into it, I get a call saying the school is closing? So, I dropped out. I never received my Associates degree for the MBIC program?? In other words I wasted 2 1/2 years of my life and nothing to show for it?? Can't get a job because I have no experience??
