Timeline of Events

The oldest Everest University campus can trace its roots to 1890 when the Tampa campus became the first business college in Florida, under the name Tampa College.

Tampa College became Florida Metropolitan University in 1996.

In 2012 and 2013, Everest faced site shutdowns as a result of low job placement rates.


An investigation inquired into FMU’s “advertising, marketing and business practices related to the sale of educational services to Florida Residents.”

CCI was fined almost $30 million by the U.S. Department of Education. The department found the school had misled students and loan agencies about the prospects for graduates to find jobs. All Everest locations in Canada shut down.

Loan Forgiveness

In cases of for-profit school closures: There are several student loan forgiveness programs available that you may qualify for.

If you attended FMU, regardless of when you attended, you may qualify for partial or even full loan forgiveness.

  • I’m so glad I found this website! After attending FMU, I wasn’t able to find a job in my field and got stuck with over 30 grand in loans. Thankfully, I’m now paying $0/month and will have my loans forgiven at the end of the term! Thanks guys!
