- At Everest College-Vancouver, we are very student centered. With about 300 students on average, we pride ourselves on our positive customer service. Many of our full-time staff and faculty have been with the college for over a decade with a few who have been employed for 20-27 years. We have participated in various community service projects giving back to the Vancouver area at least 8-10 times a year, as it is a requirement for all medical programs. These projects include Puget Sound Blood Drives, Red Cross Blood Drives, Race for the Cure, Relay for Life, YWCA and YMCA, Caps for Chemo, and toy drives. We also provided supplies for children and women in the area and have participated in clothing drives for local charitable organizations and hurricane victims. At Everest, we offer programs that will put you on a fast track to pursue your new career sooner. With the help of our Career Services Assistance team, you will be put in the right direction to achieving your dreams.

We look at why millions of Americans are choosing community college over a traditional four-year school today.
Many students enroll in community college with the intent of transferring to a four-year school. Of those who do, many succeed, and yet traditional colleges and universities continue to overlook them. Read on to learn more about why more community college students don’t transfer schools and to receive some tips for making the transfer yourself.
Community college is the only option for many students who either can’t afford a traditional four-year university or who need a more flexible school environment. Just because community college is different, however, doesn’t mean that its students matter any less. The Aspen Prize exists to encourage community colleges to do more for their students and to continually strive for improvement.
