  • Admissions

    Everest has a unique admissions process in that they want to get to know you, and have you get to know them, before you apply to the school. First, contact the school to discuss your career goals. Second, go on a tour of the campus to get a better feel for how the school works.

    Once you have an understanding of the school, the next step is completing the online application form, which only asks for name and contact information. From there, the admissions office will conduct a career placement assessment to analyze your talents and ensure that you are a good fit for each other.

    Besides the career placement assessment and an interview with an Admissions Representative, a high school diploma or equivalent, such as GED, is required to apply.

    Once you have completed the above, you are ready to enroll in classes. Diploma programs start monthly so you can begin as soon as next month.

    Meeting with Student Finance Planners is part of the admissions process. Forms of aid, for those who qualify, include student scholarships, federal Stafford loans, and federal PLUS loans.
