Everest University Online Program Review
Everest University wants to create programs that give students both a firm academic foundation in their field as well as hands-on experience. The school feels this approach will help the skills learned while in school more easily translate into the real-world workplace. The school is also focused on creating a diverse learning community that brings together students from all backgrounds and because of this the school provides assistance to students to help them find the aid they need to afford their education and to find careers after graduation.
Until late 2007, Everest University was known as FMU Online. The name change was motivated to associate the school with a more widely known name. Aside from the online campus, the school has 9 campuses located all over Florida as well as in 22 states from coast to coast so that students who are interested in pursuing on campus or combination classes will more easily be able to do so.
Online degree programs are geared towards career training and giving students the skills they’ll need when they’re actually on the job. Students looking for simple career training will be able to benefit from programs in Dental Assisting and Medical Insurance Billing, which will give them the skills and education required to find a variety of positions in these fields.
Students attending Everest University Online will have access to the same course materials and instructors as students attending classes on campus. Coursework can be completed at the student's own pace as long as deadlines are met, making it easier to fit homework into a busy schedule. Online degree programs are available at the Associate’s and Bachelor’s levels. Majors include in-demand fields like criminal justice and business administration.
