Everest University Reviews - Associate in Medical Billing & Coding - CLOSED
Review of Medical Billing & Coding Associate Degrees
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??
This school is more worried about the money than the students. Most schools allow you to choose your classes but, when you go online, they pick your classes. If you fail them you still pay the same amount for them even if you have the books. Student advisers changes every few months sometimes weeks. $50.000 + and I ended up dropping out because I spent more money trying to pass classes than getting my degree. SAVE YOUR MONEY DONT GO TO THIS SCHOOL!!
Worst school ever beware they advertised how they care but they don't!! I graduated 2012 and no employer trusts their education I didn't receive any help from their school what so ever. It's like once you graduate they erase you snd no one calls from anyone. I am nearly 40,000 in debt because they frequently increase the tuition yearly! Everest will sell you a dream but don't be foolish. A year later I enrolled in a community colleges and Everest University are non transferable because no accredited school trusts their education. Please beware and do not attend this university! If you are already enrolled my advice would be to find a local college or university near your home and leave Everest ASAP!! You will pay 3 times more at Everest then you will at your local college!!
Wow, I didnt have really any problems linked to them. I did graduate with an Associates Degree in Billing and Coding. I will say that they did not "really" help with job placement. I am currently still looking, even with my previous experience of 3 years as a medical biller. The cost was scary! I am now 35,000.00 in debt. That is my only complaint. The classes were challenging and the instructers were very helpful. I dont really know why people would think that they would help you with job placement and you are not even graduated yet? That always comes during your last term in any school when you are on course to graduate. The only down fall to attending online school is that you dont get the support of your class mates. But there are ways to get around that you just need to be proactive. When ever I called them they were super helpful and returned my calls timely. I also had no problems posting assignements or with the financile side. I mean people that graduated from University's have a really hard time getting jobs that they are more then qualified for. So why should you be any different?
I attended Everest University Online from 2010-2012, I enjoyed the experience that came along with this school.The only not so good thing about Everest was the running around in the fianicial aid dept.
I received my degree in October 2012 in Medical Billing Coding and Insurance. If they could get it together in the fianicial aid deptI would highly recommend this school.
Hard work is a must at any college you must apply yourself to be successful in anything in life.
