There are definitive differences between distance and online education Your education will be a blend; it will be a balance between class time with your educator through video conferences and periods for you to work on projects under supervision.  

Our accreditor has outlined clear guidelines that the curriculum must be delivered for the school to award hours and credits towards graduation.    

Over the next two days, we will email you an invitation to set up your EBC student account.  Please check your SPAM/Junk folder for the invitation.

Your student email account will be the main method of communication for the distance education program, so please check it often.   

It’s going to be different.   You most likely enrolled because you are a very ‘hands on’ learner.   This will be an adjustment from the way you typically learn.   This will also be an adjustment for your teacher from the way they typically teach.  

We ask you to be patient, positive and flexible with yourself, with us and with one another. 

In full disclosure, it’s important to be realistic and acknowledge there will be hiccups, but we will figure it out together.   The way we teach will evolve, so what this looks like the first few weeks may look very different at the end of this journey.

Yes.  The delivery platform has apps for both iOS and Android devices.   It’s best to have a laptop or computer, but a smart phone can provide the level of access that you need.

We are hosting a web conference for VA students on Monday March 23 at 1pm.  Please see the page “Connecting with your Class” for the web conference (click here).

We are still getting clarification with the Veteran Administration on options for Veteran students.   

Earlier today, the VA announced: 

Over the past two weeks, VA has worked with Congress to preserve GI Bill benefits for impacted students during this difficult time.  The Senate and House passed S.3503 and the bill will be headed to POTUS to sign, which will give the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) the authority to continue GI Bill payments uninterrupted in the event of national emergencies. The new law allows for VA to continue to pay benefits regardless of the fact that the program has changed from resident training to online training. Also, students will continue to receive the same monthly housing allowance payments that they received for resident training until January 1, 2021, or until the school resumes normal operations of resident training. VA is working to immediately implement the new changes to address current and future school terms to ensure students continue to receive their education benefits.” 

However, when we sought confirmation from the VA regarding student funding, they instructed the school to wait until the webinar on Friday, March 27th, 2020.    

Evergreen is seeking additional guidance and will update this page accordingly.  

Yes, we will be keeping your specific schedule (Example: Monday-Wednesday-Friday, Tuesday-Thursday-Saturday, or Monday-Friday, Evening, etc.)

Any official announcements to launch will be posted on this site.
