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. This indicator doesn’t take into consideration students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading picture. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture.

Altierus Career School is Everest with a new name. It seems like whenever Everest is closed by the Department of Education they change names. When they get in trouble with their accrediting commission, they bounce to a different commission. The operating procedures of schools like this give legitimate educational institutions a bad reputation. They do have an effective high pressure sales force. That certainly helps them get students into school. I do not think their enrollment is from a reputation of excellence.

I was assaulted 3 different times in this school, i was going for ma, medical assistant. The dean did nothing. Shes always telling people how shes a woman of excellence, bragging on hersely. Rather then encouraging students on how great they can become. She is also prejudiced. She is highly bias against white students. The teacher we had thier didnt know how to teach the class, so she quit. They also fraudulently applied for 2 loans in my name. I was there on a pell grant. Which you dont have to pay back. This school use to be called Everest Institute. Now they call it Altierus institute. It still has all the same teachers. The Dean is still stuck on herself there. I would not recommend this school to anyone. I would not attend this school, unless you want to go in debt. They get you excepted for student loans. That your not eligible for. They fix it to where you are. Do not go here. Dont let them sign anything for you. Dont sign anything they ask you to. If the Dean asks you to start making payments to her on loans you didnt apply for. Leave the school and get an Attorney.

I graduated from the Medical Assistant program in 2007 from the Dearborn campus. Best decision I ever made. I've been employed for 10 years with a great company. It is what you make it. Classes weren't hard but the tuition is very expensive. I would have gone to community college for a better price but time was of the essence. My program was only 8months and I couldn't beat that.
