Beautiful Orlando, Florida holds many attractions for many people, including affordable housing and apartments - one of which you have recently rented. The addition of several colleges in the Orlando proper area is another added bonus, and for many Everest University is a desired destination point for a continued educational experience.
Offering Bachelor's, Associate's and Master's degrees in everything from accounting to paralegal to medical assistance, EU is a locally accredited Florida university that has something for everyone in a vocational setting; those interested in taking classes directly related to your major immediately while avoiding elective or superfluous classes will find a lot to love at Everest.
In addition to being a very well rounded university academically, the school offers career placement services, small work teams, hands-on training and dedicated instructors with real world experience. The only caveat is this: If you take classes at EU, it is only accredited as an independent University, and does NOT have regional accreditation. So be sure to find out what classes will and won't transfer before you begin taking classes.
Admission to the University is fairly basic - you will need to have a high school diploma or equivalent, followed by an assessment test. Finally, you will be required to meet with a campus advisor, who can help you narrow down your choices of major.
The tuition costs are fairly reasonable - a year of school is $10,000. Add another $1,100 for books and supplies and the total cost for admission hovers around $12,000. The University does not offer campus housing, but being central to the local community are large attractions such as the Walt Disney World resort, Sea World and Universal Orlando Resort. In addition, you can participate in the local cultural events, many of which are Native American or Cuban in origin. There are several art galleries and museums that offer the participant a view of the history of Florida as seen through various culturally diverse eyes. As with your time spent at EU, the local culture is further proof that one should never stop learning.
