We built eVersity specifically for students like you – people who have busy lives, but who still want to find a way to finish college.   Here are a few ways we are proudly different and proudly built for you:
  • University of Arkansas Faculty.  We are fortunate to be able to draw excellent faculty from across the entire University of Arkansas System of colleges and universities.  All our courses have been developed by the same faculty you would encounter if you were enrolled at one of our traditional campuses. In this regard, you can be assured of receiving the same quality education as if you attending classes on a campus.
  • One class at a time.  Going full-time is almost impossible for a working adult.  So we ask that you take just one class at a time. Our classes are short and intense – just six weeks in length.  This short period allows you to focus all your energies on just one class and then move on to the next subject. Our students really like this format and our faculty tell us that the student work is better because it is more focused. We think our approach makes sense – 92% of all students enrolled with us pass their classes.
  • Seven starts per year.  Life doesn’t just happen in the Fall at the end of August, or in January in the middle of the month. Why should those be your only two options to come back to college?  We want to be ready when you are ready. We offer seven start dates every year so that when you decide to apply, it will be just a few short weeks before you are enrolled in a class and on your way to completing your college degree.
  • High Levels of Support.  Regardless of who we are or what we are doing in life, we all need a little help every now and then. Sometimes it is simply a reminder that we need to be someplace or a “to do” list of tasks we need to complete.  At eVersity, we strive to be your reminder on what needs to be completed. Ultimately you need to do the work, but we will check in with you to see how you are doing in class, we will monitor your activities to give you a well-placed nudge when we think it can help you, and we will try to encourage you to be the best student you can be. Our academic success advisors are responsible for not only helping you develop a degree plan that plots a path to your graduation, but for monitoring class activity to maximize your chance for success.  We think this high level of support sets us apart from other universities.
  • Low Cost and Accessible.  While college is still the best investment you can make in yourself, it is no secret that college is becoming more and more expensive.  We’ve worked hard to keep our costs down. Our tuition rates are low and we don’t have any hidden fees. We’ve also found a way to eliminate the costs of textbooks which means you won’t have to have make a trip to a bookstore to spend several hundred dollars for books for each class. We can’t make college free, but we have worked hard to keep our costs low.
  • Workforce Relevant.  If you are considering returning to college, there is a good chance you are doing so because you feel it will improve your opportunities in the workforce.  We know there are those that want to study art, music, the humanities and other very important fields. There are many fine colleges that offer excellent degrees in those fields. Our focus is on degree programs that we believe fit the marketplace and where there are growth opportunities.  All the degrees we offer are tied to rapidly growing and critical areas of the workforce.  More importantly, we have made a special effort to stress the real world application of the knowledge we provide in the classes. We know you not only want to know what is necessary to pass the class, but how that knowledge relates to the real world.  For every one of our degree program, we have included the skills that employers across the country say are critical for success in the modern workforce. Skills such as communication, critical and creative thinking, the ability to work as part of a team of diverse members, ethical decision making, problem solving, and leadership.
