"I am in the Alt. Med. program and it's okay, but there's a lot of disappointment in this school. First off, the professors aren't dedicated to your success. Secondly, all they want is your money, it's all about that, money, money, money and that's pathetic. It's listed as non-profit that's a hunk of junk though. It's outrageous for a small commuter University and not worthwhile for the amount of tuition they charge. On the contrary the campus is really pretty though!"

"I started my Alternative Medicine program in 2014. The admissions process was easy and well put together. However, the financial aid office was a mess. I was using my GI Bill. I had some difficulties and had to with draw from the program, that went without a hitch. I got my act together and went to re-enroll and they waived my reentry fee. They had me speak with FA and the gentleman that was in there was a vet and understood what need to be done. The class are fast but informative. You get out of them what you put into them. Just like any other university you have hard teachers and you have easy. I am enjoying my experience and will more than like apply to the Master program."

"Everglades University helped me to pursue my career as an alternative medicine practitioner. I found the courses to difficult, but the staff to be very helpful. After getting my degree, I now have the ability to achieve anything that stands in my way."

"Everglades is the second online college that I have attended and Everglades has a really nice online interface. It is consistent between classes which is very helpful. I am majoring in Alternative Medicine (due to graduate may of 2017). Some of the classes feel a little basic and I saw some people complaining about that so let me explain. Yes, a few of the classes seem to be very quick, basic and easy. However, they are still informative and give you a good general feel for the particular class subject you are studying. Yes, you will have to pursue a higher degree if you want to have a big breakthrough in this field but that's the same with every medical background. The quality of the education here is something you have to work for to get your return. You can't expect to occasionally read the material and still pass the test with comprehension. If you want a good education, put in the work and it will pay off- don't just try to slide through. My one complaint is with Financial Aid. <-- Ya'll really need to get your act together. I feel sorry for the people who work in the financial aid office because from the other reviews I've read they are constantly changing out staff so that no one really knows what is going on. If you are thinking about attending Everglades you need to have your finances in order. As long as you can make a consistent, significant monthly payment (think $500+ with some scholarships) then yes, you will probably enjoy your experience here. Also, the class schedule goes year round which makes it so that you can only get federal financial aid for two consecutive semesters i.e. no fed. aid during the summer months. That really sucks if you're not prepared for it."

"RED FLAGS. EVERYWHERE! PLEASE. RESEARCH FOR YOURSELF BEFORE YOU. WASTE YOUR TIME AND SPREAD. THE WORD SO. OTHERS KNOW AS WELL! THIS SCHOOL PREYS ON MILITARY GI BILLS! THIS DEGREE IS NOT APPLICABLE TO ANYTHING ELSE IN ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE. IF YOU INTEND IN FORGETTING YOUR CAREER, YOU'LL FIND YOURSELF AT A COMMUNITY COLLEGE TAKING MORE CLASSES, SINCE THE SINCE CLASSES DO NOT COUNT AS THERE ARE NO LABS SET UP. HOW CAN YOU OFFER A DEGREE IN SCIENCE/MEDICINE AND NOT HAVE LABS SET UP. I NOW HAVE TO WASTE 2 MORE YEARS BEFORE I AM ABLE TO ATTEND MED SCHOOL. THIS IS A HORRIBLE BUSINESS, IT'SNOT A SCHOOL."

"I did not graduate. Very outdated online platform with zero design and misspelled assignments! Instructors were average and any time you called for help, the names and titles of people changed constantly. The advisers change constantly. What does that say? I withdrew and  I go to an online community college, a better deal by far! EU is overpriced and when you transfer they will never stop calling you to come back! I had to change my phone number, seriously! I begged them to stop calling me. Unethical, greedy corporate school that just wants your money. Save your money, DO not enroll here! You will be in heavy debt for the rest of your life!"

"I had found out that it was difficult to find a secure job after graduating so wanted to transfer to nursing and Anatomy 1&2 credits were not transferable and had to be taken again and FASA does not pay for the the same clsses twice so I was stuck paying out of pocket or getting a private loan to continue before nursing program began which set me back additional 4 months. Now was told because I withdrew I owed more money. Rip off. Go to a state college, its cheaper with same or better education."

"I have attended Everglades University in Orlando for a couple of months. My initial plan was not really related to the program so I transferred to somewhere else. First I will list the positive aspects of the school: for me, everyone was very nice and knowledgable. The financial aid representative was very helpful and also, he knew how to help me. The professors are top notch and they are highly educated. I enjoyed all of my classes while I was attending and I gained a lot of knowledge, too. Now I will go to the negative aspect: first of all, not all the negative aspects are the faults of the school that I will mention: students are rude, disrespectful and usually late. I cannot learn in an environment where professors are not putting any discipline in the classroom. I had classmates who were constantly late on Saturdays (we start at 9 am and the person arrived after lunch..) if you say you want to attend classes on Wednesdays and Saturdays that means you have the time on those days and you dedicate yourself fully to be on time and participate on class. Yet, these students still got their attendance points (probably due to the fact that if they don't reach their attendance points the financial aid would be denied...) still I don't believe this is a good policy towards other students. It is understandable that sometimes you cannot attend or you have something urgent to do, but not every single time.. I didn't feel that school provided me with a lots of challenges, the professors are not that strict and the studying materials are also not that much. So you can easily get a good grade. On the other hand, when I wanted to transfer I tried UCF first, and they did not transfer my credits from Everglades saying that the institution is in a different accreditation. My problem was mostly that the Alternative Medicine program is a well chosen major, with a little bit of everything in it, (little chiropractor, acupuncture, nutrition...) and basically, any of them is not enough to stand by alone. If you want to be a nutritionist, you cannot do it only with this degree. I would recommend the school just for the knowledge."

"The idea of getting a degree in Alternative Medicine is great... it's also a plus that the college is properly accredited. I feel as though there are some ups and downs for this college. I am very close to having my bachelors at Everglades (so I'm too invested to opt out of the college) but there are some huge flaws when it comes to financial aid. The financial aid department at Everglades is one of the most difficult groups of people I have ever spoken with... They don't know what they are doing AT ALL. If you have scholarships or grants that you want applied to your tuition, good luck with getting financial aid to help. They practically make the students do their jobs, it's ridiculous. Be very careful about going to this school, and make sure you have the proper funding to go here. Honestly, I love all of my classes, the teachers are great, and you can learn a lot. Especially because the online classes allow you to study on your own time. I just wish that the financial aid department wasn't so obsessed with getting your money; it would be better if they cared about the students and helped them figure out a financial plan (because that's their job!)."
