Everest University Pompano Beach, FL / Scam
I enrolled at Everest Univ. (when it was FMU) (Pompano Beach, FL location) in May of 2006. I enrolled to get my GED while getting my Associates in Paralegal Studies. I did well for the 1st couple of semesters with a 4.0 GPA (making A's in every course). Then I had to take online classes because the classes that I needed to take where only being taught in the daytime (which I cant attend bc I have a f/t job). I was forced to enroll in Online classes and even though I made every effort- I found it extremely confusing and difficult and expressed my concerns to my counselor (Dr. Lydia Haynes and Marilyn Perez) I ended up failing. Then, I was automatically enrolled for the next course (online classes) which I never knew about and was given an F due to not doing them. I tried getting back into school but they advised me that I was "suspended" from school due to my grades and I couldn’t register until I speak to the Dean, well, I called the Dean probably about 20 times w/o a return phone call.
Its been a few months now that I have been trying to get someone to help me out w/no success. No one at the school returns my calls or emails (not even the Dean). I finally emailed a professor who I had a couple of classes with (Dr. Ronnie Savar) and she was able to get the President to email me (Eduardo Sama) which was also very rude and nasty and NOT helpful. I am disgusted with theis school and how they treat their students. I now owe them a balance of $2680 which they are willing to settle with me for $1340 which I have to pay by 8/17 in order to get my official transcripts. Why should I pay for this when this was for the online classes that I didn’t even sign up for or even started. Why cant they just release my official transcripts and let me move on?
I went to PBCC (boca Raton campus) yesterday and they wont even transfer all of my credits (when I finally get the official transcripts). I also now have to get my GED as well.
I want to know if you can help me in any way. I have read MANY articles online re: this school and how students are being cheated out of thei $, time and hopes/dreams.
