"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."

"The studies in the degree I was going for did not pertain to what I wanted or needed, the faculty and student advisers are just as worthless as the curriculum they have for the degrees they offer. Their classes are very remedial and very little, if anything, you learn will give you the tools you need or provide the training you need to get the career you want. Their biggest selling point is the number of people that get a degree and that you need a degree to show potential employers...I say that its important to have the right training so that you can be a useful resource for potential employers...With very little effort and research you can find the same classes and training they offer at very little or no cost to you...do not enroll at Everest, they are only concerned with making a profit not your education and it shows on their site and software...if you can cover the cost of attending this school, you would be better off putting this money in an IRA or purchasing a house because you would just be throwing this money away for absolutely nothing."

"My husband and I both attended Everest and it was the worst decision we had made. I actually had to call to get my diploma from them. After financial aid somehow I owe them money. Their laptop program is a joke, you get an older model for which they charge you $800 for when a new one from Walmart would be less. Recommend you opt out of that program. Their advisers are never available or if they actually do speak to you it is to try and re-enroll you. The career service after you graduate is a joke, I have had 3 advisers and my husband has had 9 since graduation. The only thing they do is send you Craigslist, Monster or Career Builder, well I can do that all on my own. I have been waiting 3 weeks to get my transcript in order to go to a local University and no hope in the coming future for that. The teachers are a waste no steady inter action with students. It amazed me how some people posted but got a great response from the teacher. A one sentence response is not a good feedback to something. Tried getting out but was already in as I was taking 6 classes at a time. The first semester was fine but after that down hill. I have a degree in Business that is of no use and my husband has one in Criminal Justice."

"I've been completely lied to by Everest. I suggest that they hire people who know policies and procedures before letting them get on the phones. I was assured I would be able to enroll in another business associates program because business administration associates is no longer available. Now I'm being told the only option is a bachelors program. If I would've been given accurate information the first time I would have stayed in the program I was in. Then I was told today that after 12 months, I would be able to re-enroll in my business administration associates program, which is obviously a lie, because based on what the student advisor stated "business administration associates is no longer offered". Then I was told business administration associates is equal to having a high school diploma, which means Everest knowingly scammed people if they knew the degree was meaningless. I maintained a 4.0 and was completely happy with my program, until I was pressured to change my course because they were changing the offered programs. They stated the 7000 they refunded to my account they keep and I'm responsible to pay the lender back if l don't re-enroll in one of the programs they now offer. I need my funds returned to my lender or I need to be placed back in my program. If they review all the calls that I've made, they will determine that I was given false information, but conveniently all the supervisors are unavailable. By the way, I've been there since August 2014, It's now March 2015 I have a $3000 credit on my account from what was left over out of my financial aid, but I still haven't seen a penny of it."

"I had hands on training on how to do the work. However, there are programs that help students to stay motivated in achieving their goals. I was excited to go to this school and I have earned my Associate's degree. In addition, I am soon pursuing my Bachelor's degree in Science- Business Administration. It is an amazing college for me and I think it would be for others."

"Everest University Online may seem like the answer to starting a new career but, its not. Starting out here I thought the world of this school, I was all in. Until I realized that there were no midterms and no final exams for each course. That's when I noticed that they give you courses but don't check to see if you really know what you learned before moving you on to new courses. To me, that was enough to realize that employers may not take this degree serious and also schools that I plan to attend in the future. I have read a ton of reviews where other schools think a degree from Everest is a joke and now I completely understand why. I am simply going off my experience and I would say go to a community college before coming here. Community colleges are cheaper, they have an actual place you can go into if you need assistance with anything instead of being on the phone for hours and yes they do have online classes as well. I so wish I would have done my research before starting here at Everest because now I feel somewhat educated and thousands of dollars in debt. Please go somewhere else it will save you a ton of money. For my degree at Everest I have to pay back $30,000, when i could have went to a community college and paid $13,000 for the same degree. A lot of the classes do not transfer over and you will not get credit for many either. I feel I have given many reasons not to attend Everest Uni. online."

"It seems that everyone has different experiences with Everest. I also noticed that most people who are experiencing problems are the ones attending the for profit school. I attend Everest University Online and I love it! This is the third online environment I have been a part of and it is the best of the three. I began in April of 2013 and am now in my third term. Not to mention, I have been on the Dean's List since my first term. I haven't experienced any problems with student or financial services. My money comes on time like clockwork. The professors are excellent, knowledgeable, and passionate about educating. I have learned a lot since I have been here. All of these negative responses don't bother me and should not bother anyone else. I am not worried about whether they will find work for me. God is my source. He will open the door for me. I'm not depending on Everest. I feel that I am in the right place and at the right time. God placed me here and here will I stay. Why fix something that isn't broken? As for me, I'm not claiming any of the problems these other people are having. It's already done! People just do your best. Complete your readings, discussions, and individual work and you will be successful. Always give your professors quality work. What more can they ask of you?"

"I started off at Everest College in California and then moved out of state and transferred to all online. While at the Campus, it feels like high school, not a college environment what so ever. The instructors were horrible, you don't really learn anything because they don't care. When I transferred to online I thought it was a little better because you are able to go at your own pace and not be held back by students that don't want to be there, but once again the instructors didn't care and don't offer any real help when you need it. I completed the program in 2 years and never received a diploma or certificate showing I completed the Degree. Every time I all I get the run a around and never get anything accomplished. I recently tried to transfer my credits to a Community College in NV and I was told yesterday that the credit I "earned" here are not nationally accredited so I will have to start all over. What a surprise considering every single employee I asked said they were accredited. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY! I WILL BE PAYING OFF A LOAN FOR NOTHING FOR THE NEXT 10+ YEARS!"

"The 1st 2 weeks went fine, but then I would post my work but it wasn't showing online. I contacted IT & they wouldn't or couldn't fix it. They dropped me & failed me in all 4 classes. Then a month later I got a bill for $2300. It happened to my best friend too. Don't waste your time or money, they are scam artists."

"I just started school here 14 January 2013. I am a Veteran am attending thru the VRAP program, and I would highly recommend the school. K. in the certification team for Veterans is on top and the most knowledgeable of the 3 schools I have attended. The professors are great, they return emails immediately and work with you to achieve your goal.As far as the "success coach", he lied to me, made decisions that I did not agree with, or authorize the course change he made. The student resolution team responds to things immediately and gets things resolved. All of my books and laptop were delivered within days. I am just very impressed with Everest!At 54 returning to school, my life experience knows what is worth and not worth it. Everest is. Stay away from ACOT in Missouri."

"I have been attending this school for a,most 2 years at the time of this review. Every time I have ever had a problem, I received help in a timely manner.The staff is great and the classes were fun. I would be more than glad to attend another course if they offered anything else I was interested in. I graduate with honors in January 2013, if the school wasn't great, how could I do that? I couldn't."

"I believe that Everest was a good investment for me. I applied at Everest April. 12, 2011 and started taking online classes April. 17, 2011. I have been attending Everest for over a year now and I have not had any bad experiences except for the ones that I caused to happen, like turning in my assignments late and receiving a lower grade than I would like. Other than that I am maintaining a 3.67 GPA and Have been on the Deans List three times and will be on it again after the spring term is over. I am going for my associates degree in business administration and I am very confident about the education and support that I am receiving from Everest.I feel you should really research any school in depth before you just dive in anyway because we all have different views, standards, and objectives that we want to pursue. Everest provides the quality and quantity of education and support that I am looking for. So juggle your options before you dive in, read all of the fine print in depth before you pursue it, and once you start something always be sure to complete it no matter how complicated it is. So I recommend Everest because it gave me the motivation and education that I need in order to have a successful future. Now how my future and education turns out is absolutely up to me! Good luck to all and remember that we decide what's best for us!"

"The refund checks have always always always came to me on time if not early.However, I was told that I am going to have a nightmare of a time transfring credits so that I can go to another school for my bachlors so that I can study law one day and I think their right. I think all my money will be a waste. I really hope they do something about it."
