With the growth of students taking classes online, we sent a survey out to some of our students asking why they prefer online education. We specifically wanted to know why they chose online education with Everest University Online and what they thought of our online degree programs.
Students told us there were many reasons why they chose to attend Everest’s online classes. Some reasons include:
Our career-focused curriculum
Career placement services for graduates*
Our accreditation status
And even though these are all important factors to our students, they weren't the main reason why they completed their degree with Everest.
They chose Everest University Online education for a reason that we completely overlooked. It's a reason that makes our online education stand out from other online degree programs – and it's something we never really considered.
The top reason: A supportive team
Students kept writing to us over and over again about how much they appreciated Everest's supportive staff and faculty. Students found they were surrounded by a team supporting them in their educational journey, and that’s what made the biggest difference.
Everest is committed not only to academic excellence, but also to making sure students get the support they need to reach their educational goals. Everest students aren't numbers; each is considered a part of our online family.
And, as part of our online family, we work hard to create an online environment that each student will feel comfortable in.
You will find support every step of the way – from getting your computer set up to getting help throughout your online degree program. Our commitment has drawn more and more students to our online school.
How Everest supports online students
To give you an idea of how Everest supports its students, we'd like to share with you personal notes we received from some of our graduates.
"I'm a single parent who had to work full time 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."
"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."
"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 States, including great professors. I learned a lot from my classes. I actually felt like I was in a classroom."
The common thread here is that Rhonda, Drake, and Stacy all stressed the importance of Everest’s supportive team of faculty and staff. And that's really a huge reason that motivated them to pursue an online education with Everest University Online.
We want each of our students to feel supported in every way possible, so that they’ll have an enriching experience as they earn their online degree.
So here are some of the ways we support our students:
We hire experienced instructors who care
Our support staff is available and ready to help around-the-clock
We keep our classes small to make sure each student's needs are met
Flexible class schedules mean there are no mandatory chat sessions
We help students transfer their credits when applicable**
We're proud of our online education, and we think you'll enjoy our supportive atmosphere.
