Everglades University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (110)
Poor staff knowledge, financial aid lacks communication and they make so many mistakes it will delay your payments. The class information online doesn't match the master book list. The teachers are great as they understand how often you are given the wrong book for their class. Overall horrible school and staff.
Very BAD faculty in Health Sciences... i.e., the lady who taught Nutrition was bad news. Very inexperienced teacher and mentally challenged, in my opinion. She is on the EU faculty roster and should not be. Can't believe that they keep her on and allow her to teach more courses. Online Master's in Human Nutrition from Podunk University and a Bachelor's in General Business from a community college with no outstanding grades. I wonder why they would employ a sub-par teacher if they are concerned about the quality of their education and their reputation. She alone will bring the school's reputation down in Sarasota.
I transferred from Florida State University to Everglades University to take advantage of their online Construction Management degree program. The courses are fast paced, and it takes a person willing to put in some real work, but the reward has been great already. I've completed six of their courses for my major, and each professor has been great! I work fulltime, have a growing family, and life can be really difficult at times; however, each person at EU has been helpful. I receive emails and phone calls from the deans, advisors, professors, that check up on how I am do, ask if they can help, and are very helpful when I contact them. As for the financial aid department, they were extremely helpful and assisted me in getting the most out of my dollar. If your a person that doesn't want to go to school for 3 hours a week per class, 2-3 days a week, at a major university, and just wants to get their education and move forward, EU is great! I never had one professor, administration, or dean, reach out to me while at FSU to offer assistance or just check up on how I am doing, and give encouragement. This is a great school for those who want to work hard. I believe if you want the easy college experience you better start at a community college, because even FSU was a breeze compared to EU; however, EU is amazing, if you'll keep up. I put the most into every class because this degree is part of my future and I use the information already obtained at EU to be successful at work, and has led to great advancement in the field of construction. I highly recommend this school.
Very disorganized school that is for-profit motivated and provides a shabby education for too much money. I withdrew and decided to go somewhere else, but they still keep billing me for fees and classes that I never took! Be careful! I wish i never tried this school. DO not even call for information, because they will call you relentlessly many times a day to try to get you enrolled. This type of business ( and it IS a business more than a school), should be illegal, but the Keisers, who own this crappy money pit, have already bought off the regulators with their lobbyists.
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!
There seem to be some individuals that would give this university a bad grade. The truth is that they have done right by me. I called to ask about the school in Orlando Florida. I visited, I was then guided to call the on line POC in Boca Raton. I was signed up within a day using my GI Bill. I will be graduating two years later on June 2015. I had the option of two classes or one, I choose one because of my schedule, work, home, family and other stuff. None the less, I was challenged in my studies, and made it all the way to the end. When I needed help, the faculty was there. When I needed admin help, they were also there. I would recommend this school to anyone who is professional, dedicated and wants to complete a masters' in aviation. The truth is, that you have to give it your all in order to succeed.
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.
So, I have only completed one class as of now, but so far I am satisfied with everything. My first class has been a great experience. I am enrolled in the online courses, by the way. It's the only option I have because of work. For me, the financial aid planning process went smoothly, but that might have been because I stayed on top of it and kept in touch with everyone to make sure there were no mistakes. As for my first class experience, I am impressed with how willing the instructor was to help the students; every question I had, or any other class member, was answered promptly and with complete clarity. He even called some students to help them over the phone if needed. If every class is as interactive as my first one, this will be a great experience. This is my experience thus far, so far so good.
Waste of time and money! Unprofessional administration, lack of quality professors, they don't care for a students, just for a money! High turnover...4 Deans in one year!!! Schools like this should not be allowed to be in business as they do not benefit the students!!!
Graduated September 2014 with my bachelors, and entered into their Masters program in October. Starting in November I enquired about my degree and transcripts and was told it was "in the mail", after several weeks I withdrew from the program due to the very poor service given to me and was told I would not get my transcripts for my degree until I paid what was due on my masters. If they had processed it when I graduated, none of this would have happened. So I give a HUGE warning, do NOT take anyone at this school's word on anything, get it in writing, and by all means, if you do choose this school, stay on top of your advisors because they seem to change very frequently.
