"I recently graduated from Everest University in October 2013, with an Associate in the Paralegal Studies Program. I had a pretty good experience with all of the departments, basically smooth sailing. I am now enrolled with the Bachelor's Degree Program in the same program and have caught so much flick in the Financial Aid Department. I decided weeks before the end of the term that I did NOT want to drop that I wanted to continue at the school because I was going through personal things and that I would have to drop. When it came time to start a new term I had No classes at the start of the term due to the fact they drop me anyways after the request not to and now it is an issue with my FA. I had talked with someone about my FA, classes were suppose to be there and nothing was done. I have been going through so much and I am just to my point with the school. Can anyone help me who has had this problem???"

"Everest university online is way too over priced. They leave their students to fend for themselves and are often I reachable in the event of a problem. I do not recommend this school unless you are extremely self motivated and you have no learning disabilities. They give you no breaks and will drive you into the ground. I was told I would graduate in 18 months if I held a full load of classes or 16 units. I did and at the end of 18 months was surprised by two extra classes and a un reachable student center. I would also like to add that the school is not going to be open under its current parent company and is being sold by direction of the federal government. I am supposed to graduate in October but am unsure if that will even happen. I am over 20,000 in debt and not even sure I will have a degree even though I have a 3.94 grade point average. Beware!"

"I finished my degree in April 2014, now it is the end of July and I have not received my degree yet. I filled out all of the forms they asked me to and when I called about the problem they first told me that it would take 10 to 12 weeks before I would receive the degree. I have emailed and called and now I get a run around about why I have not received my degree. First I was told that I did not complete one of the forms, when actually I completed all of the forms twice because they said they did not get them the first time. When I emailed back to find out what form they were missing I never got a response. I called and waited for about thirty minutes before someone answered and she said she would have to look into more and call me back. I am still waiting for that call. I wasted almost to years working on my degree, that I do not have and job assistance was a joke. The guy that was "trying" to help me find work wanted me to apply for security guard positions when I studied paralegal. Any time that he called he asked if I had found a job in my field and then he would say he was going to send me links for me to apply. Sometimes I got the links most of the time I didn't. This school was fine until it was time to get my degree and find work and the school has not given me my degree or helped me in anyway find work. Go to a different school."

"I have read many of the reviews regarding Everest University Online and overall, I concur with most of them. In order to have a positive experience with Everest, a great deal of that is up to the student. It is what you make it. It requires research and commitment can tell, the negativity on here is due to a lack of both.I have been pursuing my Associate's Degree in Paralegal studies and have maintained a 3.975 GPA, maintained standing on the President's List, and membership in the National Society for Collegiate Scholars. Much of this would not have been possible without the support I received from my advisors and professors at Everest. Again, I truly believe a person a student's satisfaction is up to them.Remember, work does not come before success in the dictionary either."

"I transfered to Everest University Online. I already had my Associates Degree from and ABA accredited paralegal program and wanted to work on my BS Paralegal.I did not receive ANY credits for the paralegal courses I had already taken and the first session is already over and they still have not figured out my financial aid... how hard can it really be?Everyone I talked to told me something different about my financial aid and I jumped through hoops to accomplish the tasks they told me needed accomplished only to be told that I didnt really need to do it in the first place. VERY frusterating experience. I will be transferring to Kaplan University Online."
