Finishing Your Degree Pays Off


If you could earn more than $1 million more throughout your lifetime by simply finishing something you once started, what would be holding you back?

Statistics show those who earned a college degree not only have a higher earning potential, but also live healthier lives, are more involved in their communities and are generally happier citizens. Perhaps you once believed in the transformative power of a college degree and even earned some college credits. But, like more than 350,000 other Arkansans, life got in the way and you didn’t finish.

The University of Arkansas System eVersity is the state’s only 100 percent-online university and was built to provide a clear path for busy, working adults to transfer their previously earned credits (no matter how long ago) and finish a high-quality associate and bachelor’s degree without ever having to visit a campus.

“eVersity’s core values are to provide high-quality, affordable and relevant online degree programs in order for them to obtain the necessary tools to take their career and earnings to the next level,” said Michael Moore, Ph.D., chief academic/operating officer at eVersity. “When we built eVersity, we wanted to take all of the unnecessary hassle out of the administrative process of going to college, and make it easy and free for people to apply and get enrolled so they can fulfill their dream of earning a college degree.”

It’s the friendly, personalized approach at eVersity that is designed to help students achieve success. Students take just one six-week class at a time before earning a week off and then starting the next one — seven times a year. A college education makes a powerful difference in the lives of individuals, families and communities, and eVersity allows the opportunity for Arkansans to obtain a college degree that is accessible, affordable and, most importantly, attainable. Hard-working adults like you are graduating at eVersity every seven weeks, and 97 percent of eVersity students say they are satisfied with their experience and would recommend it to a friend or family member.
