Everest College Corinthian Colleges Not Accredited Merrionette Park, Illinois
*Consumer Comment: Everest degrees are worthless
Because of the underqualified staff, the classes are not eligible for accreditation. We were taught to avoid any questions about accredition if we were asked. We were told that if a student asks if we are accredited to just say yes and we aren't lying because the school itself is accredited. However, the classes are not accredited which means that you can never be state certified. Most students don't find this out until after they take the class and attempt to take the state exam. They find out that they can only become registered and not certified. Anyone in the field knows that in order to make money as a MA you must be certified. You can't even transfer your credits earned with Everest because of the accreditation issue. They put pressure on the employees and tell them that withholding information is not the same as lying and that if they don't read and do their own research, Oh well! They even enroll students that don't have a high school diploma or a GED. No other college on Earth would do this! In order to work in the field you need to at least have a GED so what is the benefit of enrolling these students???? That's right, MONEY!
This job stressed me out to the point that I have to see a therapist because I began having panick attacks. Even when an Everest commerical came on I would start shaking. It is my aim to expose this company for the scam that they are and to prevent anymore students from ruining their lives or their credit and wasting their time.
