Online University Reviews Florida Metropolitan University Online

In November of 2007, Florida Metropolitan University Online changed its name to Everest University Online. Despite this name change, Everest offers the same courses and degree programs as FMU Online, but with some added benefits. Everest University offers programs all over the United States, in over seventy-five locations, making the name much more recognizable than “Florida Metropolitan.”

Everest University Online offers students across the United States the opportunity to enroll in a variety of degree programs in order to work toward their ultimate career goals. Some of the degree programs available include Associate degrees in Accounting, Business Administration, Computer Information Science, and Criminal Justice. Bachelor degrees are also awarded in Accounting, Business Administration, Computer Information Science, and Criminal Justice (including Paralegal studies). For students pursuing graduate studies, Everest University offers an online Master’s Degree program in Business Administration and Criminal Justice. In addition, Everest offers an online Medical Insurance Billing and Coding degree for students interested in the field of insurance billing and coding.

Everest University does not require prospective students to submit personal statements, letters of recommendations, or exam scores. And, because students can set their own schedules and complete coursework at their own pace, Everest does not maintain any application deadlines either. Prospective students who wish to enroll only have four simple steps to complete. After making initial contact with an admissions counselor, applicants will be interviewed via telephone. Secondly, students will complete an online admissions form. For students who require financial assistance, a Financial Aid Form is also required, but easily submitted online. Finally, once all these steps have been completed, students will receive and complete an enrollment packet. Following submission of the enrollment packet, students will be notified regarding their acceptance status.

In order to ensure that students receive a quality education and that their degrees are recognized by employers nationwide, Everest has also worked hard to achieve and maintain their accreditation. Everest University’s Florida campuses are accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools. The school is also accredited by the Florida Commission for Independent Education. Everest’s Phoenix campus is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, is a current member of the North Central Association, and is also recognized by the Arizona State Board for Private Post Secondary Education. In addition, Everest University’s Paralegal studies program has been approved by the American Bar Association (ABA) and the Standing Committee on Legal Assistants.
