You might be thinking: “How in the world am I going to afford this?” Averett provides financial aid and scholarships to 99% of all students, reaching $20 million dollars every year. There are numerous opportunities for students to afford a new degree, and I love that Averett makes that process easy.

The counselors will also meet with you via Zoom or phone to go over the financial aid options to make the entire process personal. Averett truly tries to find every way to make higher education affordable for everyone.

Flexible Online Programs

Busy lives are the reality of many graduate students, and Averett truly embraces the fact that many are coming back to continue their education in the midst of working and maintaining a normal schedule.

As a working professional, I needed a program that was flexible and convenient based on my crazy agenda. When searching through Averett’s offerings, I quickly found that their online programs were made for me! I was still skeptical because I knew that I needed true flexibility and I worried that between my job, family, coaching, and coursework that I would have a hard time keeping my head above water. The admissions counselors and advisors eased my mind with examples and course layouts so that I could see how the program would work ahead of time. It was absolutely flexible and tailored to a very busy working girl’s schedule.

Averett structures coursework for online classes in an accelerated format to help students finish quickly, as well as have the due dates and assignments pre-planned so that it makes it possible to plan ahead. There is also a break slotted in between each class to help make managing school and life a little easier.  I witnessed that the professors were accommodating to stressful situations and would work with you to remain successful.

Choosing Averett University was the best decision that I have ever made; the Master’s of Education in Administration and Supervision could not have been a better fit for me as I continued to reach for my professional goals. I believe Averett provides every opportunity for all students to be successful, and I am proud to be a Cougar!
