“For years I’ve been saying, ‘I’ll go back to college and finish my degree someday.’ I think that this quarter showed me that I can
actually do this and I am finally going to finish my degree.”

To attend full time and potentially qualify for financial aid, you'll take at least 12 credits in a program, courses, or both.

Find Support and Community

You won’t feel out of place in class at Evergreen.

Our students aren’t just straight out of high school. You’ll be in class with working professionals, veterans, parents, and other people with life experience. A typical student in an evening or weekend program is in their 30s, finishing a degree they started earlier.

  • You can get up to speed with a course for returning students, and get help all along the way. Learn more about transitioning back to school.
  • If you have work experience that’s equivalent to college learning, you may be able to get college credit. See how Prior Learning from Experience can work for you.
