Review of Criminal Justice Bachelors Degrees
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
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 am attending Everest University online. When i started out i was going for my Associates degree for Criminal Justice but they changed it to where you have to get a Bachelor's degree for my field. I have to have 192 credits for this college to get a degree. I am currenlty at 86 credits and owe 35,000.00 in student loans. I still have nine terms left to get my degree, Why i am still there is because 60% of the schools that i have contacted won't take credits from the college, 30% of the schools i contacted will only take between 8 - 24 credits and the 10% of the other schools or more expansive. The only good thing that the new company took over them is it decreased the tuition a little. Instructors is OK. The ad visors and student aid reps don't help at all. They lie. They don't contact you if there is a problem and when you call them if there is a problem you get the run around. According to there policy they are suppose to email or cal you back with in 72 hours of your email or phone call. I emailed my student adviser and program lead and student aid rep two weeks later.. NO RESPONSE>> Find a different college.
I was enrolled in Everest University Online/formerly Florida Metropolitan University. My first few years (3) were actually great. My last year was horrible. The financial aid staff was terrible. I wound up missing a semester because my paperwork was not done in time. Then I was told I could not finish school. I eventually did finish the following semester after the missed one and graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice. The only good thing was that I was already employed in law enforcement. I was not provided any assistance with finding employment, or anything else. I was then told that I would not receive my Diploma because I owed over $9,000.00+ for the last semester. Mind you, I was receiving student loans. They never sent a detail statement of my payments to my account or what the $9,000+ covered. Four years later, I still do not have my Diploma. I'm not paying. They can keep it.
I have been enrolled in Everest University for one year. I called the other day to inquire about my financial aid and was told that my major was no longer being taught at this university. I was already dropped from classes when I called, but, had completed work in my classes the previous day!!!!!!!! What a waste of time!!!!!! Never, ever, ever attend here!!!!!
