The eVersity Difference

Balanced Schedule

By focusing on one course at a time, for six weeks, and taking a week off before starting the next course, you can easily clock out of your job and log in to your career. With seven start dates per year, back to school can happen in any season.

Affordable Quality

As a not-for-profit institution, we work hard to keep our operating costs low so we can keep your tuition low. In fact, we offer one of the lowest per-credit-hour tuition costs in the U.S. Where we invest our resources is in your education. Our University of Arkansas System faculty have a wealth of experience specializing in our areas of study.

Transferable Credits

We accept college-level courses in transfer from all accredited colleges and universities recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. Appropriate college-level credit earned at international universities may also be eligible for transfer. Talk to an enrollment specialist for details.

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.
