Everglades University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (104)
Yes it is expensive and yes it has some problems with frequent staff changes. Honestly though, I would not have been able to complete my education without EU. I am finally done and they are accredited, very important for an online school. This is a good school for military personnel or adult students that have much more to do than just attend classes.
Turn and run as far away and as fast as you can from this business. Everything anyone tells you at this business tells you is a lie or misrepresentation. They enrolled me in a class that had already started weeks prior. The online experience was just plain horrible. My instructed made excuses for late grading because he had other things to do. We I formally asked to withdraw they made up excuses why the normal withdraw policy wouldn't be honored. Then they turned it over to collections. it's no wonder the degree is not accepted countrywide.I wroye this review in hopes that others may read it and not make the same mistake I did.
I honestly have to say, my experience with Everglades was beyond great. After getting my Associates with another online college (not everglades) I was very apprehensive. However they handled everything with professionalism and ease. The admissions handled the transferring of my credits from my previous school and communicated with me every step of the way. The finance department walked me through my FAFSA, and even found me additional grants to help.I was registered in class with books in my hand, within 2 weeks. The instructors are very helpful and will work to get you where you need to be in class. But it wasn't without some work on my part. I had to put forth some effort in order to get positive results. Thank you for everything.
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.
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.
