My husband works as an instructor at Everest College. He takes teaching very seriously and wants his students do the same. He has high expectations for his students and if you are willing to do the work, participate in classroom discussions, ask lots of questions and study hard; you will do well. He reminds his students frequently that this is a college, not a program that if you pay your tuition and show up, you receive your degree or certificate. As an instructor, what my husband does get frustrated with, is the upper managements desire for retaining students, that aren't serious about learning. If you have irregular attendance, poor work and study habits, Everest administrators should be serious about showing those students the back door and tell them to have a nice life. If Everest College is serious about their reputation for "quality education", then they need to raise the expectation level of perspective and enrolled students, because if they fail to do so, it cheapens a degree or certificate for those who worked hard. For those perspective people who are looking into a private college for their education, do your homework. If you're interested in a particular field, research that job and what it entails. What's the salary, is that particular career in strong demand, does this career require continued education? This information is available to anyone by going to the Bureau of Labor Statistics online. Also, make sure you are committed to any educational program for the long haul. You are going to have child care issues, transportation and time issues, but plan these scenarios out before starting school. Some of the most successful people in this country had the worst adversities, but the one thing they do have in common, they did not allow their education to take second place to anything or anyone.

Iâ€™m a Financial Aid Officer at Everest College and after reading these reviews, Iâ€™m not surprised because private schools want your money and students donâ€™t make responsible decisions.
When dealing with private schools, you must know that these institutions are FOR PROFIT. The admissions reps are a SALES force, so yes; they are after your money. With this in mind, it is very important to do your homework. Ask yourself: why do I want to attend a private school over a state school? Can I afford a private school (even once I graduate)? Have I talked to enough schools to make an informed decision? My Bachelor's degree was LESS than the cost of an Associates Degree at Everest and I will never have to worry about my credentials. By attending a state school, you can rest assured your degree will be well respected and well received. As a Financial Aid Officer and college graduate, I do not recommend attending ANY private school. My sister-in-law went to Ottawa and had nothing but complaints--the same complaints as these reviews. Certainly, even state schools have problems, but you can rest in knowing you are earning a degree from a reputable school.

My fiance is looking into everest college so we did a whole stack of research and i must say for being one of the top rated vocational schools they do have a shit load of terrible reviews. We looked into the school and they DID PROMISE her a job placement. They also said 200 hours of externship when she really needs 160hrs. 8 months is a great amount of time to recieve a certificate, but heres the ?. Is the certificate worth the money your spending on school?

I am not yet an Everest student, but I am in awe about some of the reviews that I am reading. Are these negative ratings for Everest College or is for Everest Colleges and Everest Institutes everywhere?

This school is a FUCKING joke. In 8 months I had 4 diffrent teachers. Career services is a total joke. I graduated in October and STILL am waiting for my certificate from them. All they do is give you the run around on everything and NEVER call you back when you leave messages. Save your money and go to a community college intead of this school!

I am sure that there are a few programs that this college may produce proper candidates for the workforce. However, I think it is crucial that people who are even considering this college do full research. The truth is that many of their technician programs are not looked highly upon over other educational institutions. My understanding is that it is very expensive and you often do not get what is expected, promised, or hoped. As an employer of graduates from the college, and a friend of people who have attended I strongly recommend reconsidering unless comfortable with minimum wage.

Everest College is full of problems from the beginning. Even if you are just looking for program information, you are expected to enter a phone number and email. Within the next couple of hours I started getting non stop phone calls from somewhere in Colorado, this has been going on for over a month. The representatives do not give a care when you ask them to stop..the phone calls keep coming. Acting like a telemarketer or Telepest will not get students to attend your institution.
