Everest University Reviews - CLOSED
Student & Graduate Reviews (225)
It is a shame that an institution of higher learning, and I use that term loosly, would cause their students so much pain and stress. This institution does not deserve to be called a university. It should instead be called a scamversity.
It should have been closed years ago for taking advantage of people who are trying to better themselves and all they end up with is debt and a worthless piece of paper called a degree. Shame on you Everest.
Everest is a ripoff. I have had nothing but problems with this school. The student services didnt reply to emails. The financial aid department is a joke. They do everything possible not to give you your refund. I wouldnt recommend this school to anyone.
They really helped me in all areas. Someone was always there to answer my questions. The professors are just "AWESOME"They really knew what they were teaching.
I went to FMU in 2005-2006. When I attended I couldn't get my books in the mail for anything. Finally I took a class that required a CD for the assignments, which I couldn't do because I never got my supplies. I have angry emails to my advisor that were simply responded to with "well, we sent them" ~ and then she went so far as to give me tracking numbers that corresponded to enrollment documents, and not my materials at all!! I matched the numbers up! Imagine that, I ALWAYS got the enrollment papers and the billing paperwork! NEVER GOT MY SUPPLIES.
Now, I'm trying to go back to college. I got a D in the class requiring the CD, so I DROPPED OUT. Now, they conveniently have proof that I attended the next semester by logging in ONCE in each class. They gave me F's, and won't take them back even though I'd dropped the previous semester and not enrolled.
The ONLY way to get rid of those F's? Take the classes over. 2 classes. 3000 dollars.
I went to FMU in Florida and I loved it. Now the school has merged with Everestt and forget it. It is not even worth the aggravation. I post in the faculty office spot and the teachers do not answer you. Teachers post links to videos that do not work on the computer the school sends you. When you call tech support they don't want to help they just say I am sorry I can't hear you please call again later.
You can hardly get in touch with your student adviser because everyone else is getting in touch with theirs and they do not have voice mail. Forget getting your over payment from Financial aid. I was told mine was sent out on March 26 now it is May and guess what even the replacement check never showed up. When you call you just get a run around and they can't be bothered. I am glad I only have a few more credits and then I am done.
Another thing is no matter what the reason they do not take late work. I did not have power for three days because of the storm and was told if I already submitted something late then it would not count. Look at your other options before choosing this school.
I have been going to Everest University online for over two years. I have faced many life challenges that has caused me to fail many classes which has now extended my graduation date. I had to retake some classes at least twice which once passed the failing grade is replaced. It's called grade forgiveness. I have never had any problems getting a response back from the instructors or anyone else who works for Everest.
I call student services and always get an answer someone is always there to assist you. I even have them email me my audit sheet so I can go decide and get help on which classes to take next. I have been to AIU and UOP and so far I'm glad I came here. I'm not too big on school but I'm sticking it out and they are helping me to do that.
I have no idea what you are all talking about. This school has bent over backwards for me. Yes some of the professors can be hard to get along with and such, but I have never been upset at anyone from the school. I call they answer all my questions even if I keep them on the phone for over an hour. maybe you all were the problem when talking to them.
Registering at this school was one of the worst mistakes I have ever made!! Not only do I owe 10,000 dollars in student loans for credits i cant use ANYWHERE that is worth anything i wasted almost two years of my life with them. All the online classes are is a easy way for them to make money off people and not do anything in return.
If you need to get in contact with them about anything besides registering you can forget it. It took me two months to get them to send my transcripts to me. Unless you are giving them money you will not see any type of customer service.
This school is terrible. The teachers do not take part in the discussion but just have "canned" responses that they post to make it look like they are doing something, when they are really doing nothing. If you have to contact anyone else in the school, good luck. No one will answer your emails or return your phone calls. You are on your own.
This school is nationally accredited which means you are very limited as to who will accept this education. Even Everest employment ads for teachers require a degree a degree from a REGIONALLY accredited institution. Hypocrisy much? They will lie to you, they lie to all their students. Don't go here.
There is no feedback from the instructors and I never received a response to any email I sent whether it was to an instructor or administration or student services.
The curriculum itself is fine, but the quality of instruction is incredibly poor. This company lacks integrity. I have dropped out of the program and I have enrolled in a legitimate school that is NOT "for profit" like EUO.
