  • Ready to rethink college?

    Obtaining a college degree is one of the most important investments you can make in yourself. If you’re not sure that the benefits outweigh the costs, consider this: studies have shown that people who obtain a college degree earn approximately $1 million more in their lifetime than those with only a high school diploma. College graduates also have a lower unemployment rate — 2.8% compared to the nation’s overall rate of 5.7%. 

    from affordable tuition to career-ready degrees, eVersity has been designed for your success. Get started towards the future you deserve.
