"College of DuPage and other Illinois community colleges stand ready to assist students who may be stranded," College of DuPage President Dr. Robert L. Breuder said. "Not only do we provide a world class education in a host of employable fields, but we believe transferring students would find an enormous cost benefit."

Examples of cost difference between Everest College and College of DuPage programs include: Dental Assistant with Everest charging $16,973 compared to COD charging $2,999; Massage Therapy with Everest charging $14,955 compared to COD charging $9,978; Medical Admin with Everest charging $16,973 compared to COD charging $1,595; Medical Insurance Coding with Everest charging $16,973 compared to COD charging $2,495; and Pharmacy Technician with Everest charging $16,973 compared to COD charging $1,499.

"We have the facilities, faculty and price to make any student's dream a reality," Dr. Breuder said.
