Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes a huge number of students.

I went into the Pharmacy Technician Program in 2012 and graduated 2013. I wish I would have spent my money elsewhere. This school is a complete joke. I was an excellent student and got really good grades, but after two instructors left, whom were excellent, they hired someone who didn't know how to teach. I felt like I took away nothing from the experience, and I am so glad they closed. Not to mention the woman who I met with to graduate was ignorant and rude. Tried telling me some of my clinical hours wouldn't count because I could only have 40 a week and I did night shift. I called and complained because most people work over 40 hours, so it wasn't realistic. They let me use my extra hours with no problem. Did not attend graduation as I just wanted to be done with this place!

If I could I would rate this facility at a 0 the people who attended this school were childish and were focused on nothing but creating a social life. I only had one teacher who actually was determined for all of us to prepare for graduation and actually learn something but within a few weeks of my enrollment she quit and started a new job else were. Which left our class juggling between random teachers with different teaching habits and a lot of confusion between school work and learning practices. i couldn't wait to get done with this school finally as time went on I was directed to a site were I had to work in a dental office as an extern. Getting coffee, filing, just being a office pup juggling around time sheets between the school and the office to ensure I was getting the proper hours I needed. After my externship ended the lady had no choice but to hire me because she liked me but I can tell she enjoyed me being her office slave because she didn't have to pay me. I worked at the job for only 4 months pulling through carrying other employees weight and having to run the office alone because I watched at least 3 or 4 people start working and then quit within the first week. Unfortunately certain Circumstances caused me to not be able to work there anymore and ever since then I have not been hired anywhere else because I needed at least a years worth of experience to work in certain offices. Some jobs even said they don't hire Everest Students because were looked at as a job basically. It is extremely hard to find a job and I am very upset because for a class that's $20,000 and I have to pay out of pocket $4,000 and not being able to find employment is bullshit! I would not recommend this school to anyone!

its crazy how people bash this institute. i came out of everest with a diploma and a career currently working in my field thanks to my career service reps and teachers. so if you had a bad experience thats because you didnt give the school a chance. you think community college is better its actually worst and you have to pre requisites just to get a associate degrees. thats a waste of money.so until you actually go to the school dont talk down on it until you've experienced the training program.
