Students choose online education from Everest because of the reputation of our faculty, noteworthy accreditation, and career-focused curriculum.
Our students appreciate the time and flexibility we give our students to complete their assignments.
Check out what some of our recent grads have said:
"I thought I was too old, but you're never too old to further your education. [Everest] showed me that the staff actually cares about their students. They called me just to see how I was doing. I've never had that before. It's overwhelming. I'm excited. I'm so proud of myself. I can't believe I did it [earned an Associate in Science Degree in Criminal Justice]." Twlanie Long Graduated July 2010
Associate in Science degree in Criminal Investigations
"I remember clearly. I had [just] gotten out of the hospital. I was sitting on the couch and I saw the [Everest] commercial. I said, 'I have got to do something. I've just got to do something.' The world is changing... and so I made the phone call. It was a 'can do' thing. I can do this."
"I had been to school before, but I have kids, a job and just never could put the timing all together. Online worked for me. Because of my schedule, I was able to go to work, come back, leave town, and I could get into it when I had the time to get it all done. The hardest part was not [being] computer literate. My son... he took the time to school his Dad and it [became] a bonding [opportunity for us]. It's real. And now I am summa cum laude." Woodrow Sanders Graduated March 2011
Associate in Science in Paralegal
"Between working fulltime and being a single parent, there was no time left for me to attend school at the local university. With [Everest], I was able to attend school at night in my spare time and obtained an accredited college degree." Lacey Carpenter Graduated 2004
"Everyone was friendly and helpful. The professors really cared, and the work was practical and challenging. When I finished a class I felt great accomplishment. I didn't have the time to attend a traditional college, and I didn't want to waste time with all the distractions you have to put up with on campus." Dr. Drake Perry Criminal Justice
"The fact that Everest has a ground campus helped a lot. I don't have much trust in online only schools." Victoria Sanders
"I would like to say that the experience I had while finishing my degree online was incredible. I got to meet a lot of people all over the United Sates, including great professors. I learned a lot from my classes. I actually felt like I was in a classroom." Stacy M. Allen Graduated 2003
"I work full time and was a single parent when I enrolled. Finding the time and resources to actually attend classes would have been next to impossible. An online education was flexible enough to allow me to take classes while not interfering with my everyday life." Martine E. Darby Graduated 2006
"I work. I have two children, and don't like being in a classroom with people who aren't serious about their education. I didn't have the time to sit in a classroom because I had adult responsibilities. And [Everest] makes it very convenient for those who haven't taken the GRE Exam. [Everest] also seems to have a low teacher-student ratio, which means, the teacher is more available to do one on one with the students." Tenisha Noland Graduated 2005
"Once I started the online courses, I wasn't certain if I'd be able to keep up. Immediately, I learned that the courses weren't just about me. It meant working together to come up with innovative ideas to implement our team assignments. In doing so, I have learned that teamwork is necessary to achieve a common goal that could mean the difference between profit and loss." Delores M. Parker Graduated 2004
"After High School, I attended three different colleges. Each time I dropped out. When I inquired about [Everest] . . . I was treated as a human being and not just another number as some schools would treat you. The staff and faculty make you feel important and they are there to help you succeed. I'm a single parent who had to work fulltime while attending school. There were times when I wanted to give up, but I had the help and concern of all staff members to get me through the rough times. I feel like while I was in attendance, I had an extended family that was there for me to answer my questions or concerns. In today's times education is a very important part of one's life and I want to thank all the staff members and faculty for realizing this and helping me achieve one of my goals."
