no leave of absence
criminal justice - January 8, 2015
I was six weeks pregnant with my second child and I was sick and I called and spoke with someone in student services. They told me if I wanted to take time off because I was sick, then I would be withdrawn from the criminal Justice program. So when I spoke, to the lady in student services, I told her I'm not withdrawn you guys are withdrawn me. So if you need leave time, you will be withdrawn from the school. Which is stupid.

I hate Everest with all my life They have been playing games with me since i enrolled the only thing i learned was how to be a pleasant crook. I have been doing the same paper work for almost 6 months and they are blaming the government. Yea right it's the uneducated in training staff. They change their rules often and charge what they want to charge for services i really don't know what this invisible job placement is and i don't know why the staff never knows anything about your records. I would not refer this school to a pregnant roach with 12 kids THEY SUCK

I mean really people come on. I do not write in reviews like this, but it amazes me that half of you are wanting your money. I mean really. It is not free and you don't have to max out your loans and just pull out enough to cover your tuition. That is what you guys are going for, right? Or is it to get money? That you have to pay back. The Pell Grant never PAYS your full tuition so the money you are getting is from the loans you pulled. Anyway, that is the least of my worry. I want my education. I have never had problems with Everest and it matters how much effort you put into it.

I've noticed a lot of comments. Some are good, and some are bad. To be honest, Everest University isn't the worst school on this planet, but it's also not the best. I've had my share of problems with this university myself, but it's a hell of a lot better than CTC. At least they helped me with my financial aid and I do receive stipend checks, (even though they take their time dispersing them). I take care of my Mother & Father and the curriculum is not hard but it's sure not easy. We all have bad experiences everywhere, but I'm not about to drop out because of some bad reviews. Once I get my Associates, then I will apply else where for my other degrees. If you read this, all I can say is that each experience differs for each individual. DO NOT GO BY WHAT OTHERS SAY. You want to go to Everest? GO. If not? THEN DON'T. End of discussion.

Everest is not worth it
Business Administration - Accounting - July 22, 2014
The school is not worth going to. Of course now they are having problems but some of these problems should have been foreseen by students who wanted to attend. Their job placement rates are indeed fabricated. How do I know this? Simple common sense. Th economy is terrible at the moment and many people are unemployed. For-profit schools are designed to help working adults and so of course it is easy to say your graduates have jobs when they had them before they entered. Some of the teachers really do falsify your grades. I have had teachers I've tested by turning in wrong assignments and getting FULL points. The credits are transferable if you can get another school to accept them. You may have to shop around quite a bit or even take tests to prove you know the material. I liked Everest enough to get my Associates Degree and then go back for my Bachelors Degree. Amid all of the problems however I did transfer to another university that is more recognized in my state and regionally accredited. The financial aid department is the absolute worst however. As an accounting student, it felt like I had to tell them how to do their jobs. I was told by a financial aid officer that they were not used to students who refused to receive stipends and only wanted to borrow direct cost. I assume this had something to do with how much funding they could truly request to run their operations. Another financial aid officer informed me that they could only really help me with my FAFSA, tell me about a refund, and lower level information that my student adviser could have probably looked up on my account. They were basically the middlemen between you and the accounting department. My current school is nothing like that thankfully. This is definitely a buyer beware situation and a wake up call to those who did not do proper research. Don't just research the school, research their reputation in your area to make sure it is right for you.

This school offers little support, is extremely overpriced, and has poor curriculum. Not to mention their financial aid service is TERRIBLE! I had the hardest time dealing with them, and they kept screwing everything up. Their customer service is awful as well. Every time I call, someone has an attitude, and that's after waiting at least 20 minutes on hold. I would leave if I could. The teachers are okay, but the way they set up their online learning process is not very user friendly. I wish I had chose another online school. I rarely write these things, so you know its bad if I bother. Do not go here.

This was a great experience and I would recommend Everest University Online to anyone willing to work. The online study is harder then the traditional way of learning and requires the student to be responsible for learning. You get out what you put in. The school was the perfect opportunity for me as a single parent working full-time to further my education and increase my pay grade. The only thing I was dissatisfied with was the career service department, but the school paid career builder to help me create a resume, cover letter, thank you letter, and a reference page. I have all the tools that I need and finding employment is my responsibility. This was a great experience

Come On Give Them a Chance
Business and Markrting - May 21, 2014
I've read all these reviews and I notice a pattern it seems that the worst reviews came in when the school had just started and as Everest envoled there where less negitive things to say. People kill me they all want or need a chance but when it comes to somebody or something else they are so quick to shut them down. I understand that you are suppose to write reviews on this page but dame just because you had a bad experince does'nt mean you have the right to tell someone else not to go to Everest you can give all the advise you want BUT don't mess up someone elses life because yours is. People are readin these and dropping out of school and now they have dept out there woo hoo, some people are impressionable. I like this school and everything they have to offer so do like I did GIVE THEM A CHANCE...... It might(and i repeat might) be the best disicion you ever made....................

They Can't Do Everything For You
PARALEGAL - May 2, 2014
I read some of the earlier statements on here, and I have not had any trouble with Everest University. Everest University has introduced me to a plethora of legal information and they consistently contact me to see whether or not they can provide me with anything! The coursework is challenging at times, but I wouldn't expect any less once I am employed and begin to receive a decent paycheck. Everest University plants seeds of success; however, as I read some of these reviews, it sounds as if some people expect Everest to go out and get the job for them once they graduate. Haven't they done enough? It's not all rainbows and sunbeams with Everest. At the beginning of my Spring term, the entire site was down...but I managed to get my work in on time. As a mature student, you have to persevere. You can't go through life expecting God-like miracles everywhere you go...you are going to have to work, and if you want it bad enough, you will succeed.
