Everest Institute was a system of for-profit colleges in the United States. There are currently sixteen Everest Institute campuses in the system. The various campuses offer career-training programs in business, health care, and technology.

The system of schools was previously owned by Corinthian Colleges, Inc. The company had a high loan default rate: 19% of students were defaulting on their student loans two years after attending,[1] and 58% of students were failing to make payments on their student loans three years after attending.[2]

The system was sold to Zenith Education Group in early 2015 and became a non-profit college. [3]

In 2012, Everest College in Hayward, California was issued a "Notice to Comply" by the California Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education for multiple violations, including engaging in "prohibited business practices."[4]
