The Jacksonville campus of Everest University puts students first. We offer career-oriented diploma programs as well as associate, bachelor's, and master's degree programs. Our career training and life skills will help students excel in their chosen field. There are a few important components to the Everest experience. We first start with experienced professionals in their field to lead a dynamic core team of instructors. Their inspirational journeys make classrooms come alive and with innovative projects and vibrant discussions, students find learning their new skill a much simpler task than through stuffy traditional auditorium-style classrooms. Through small work teams and hands-on training, students are exposed to specialized attention and one-on-one guidance. Participating in lab and classroom demonstrations can help a student better understand and apply the information than through a boring lecture. Training is only part of the Everest experience. Our Career Services team begins preparing students for their new career long before graduation day. They will get a chance to apply the skills they learn by practicing in a real-world environment with our medical and dental labs, computer labs, massage clinics and a resource center.
