No. Divergent U doesn't offer traditional degrees. We offer a complete alternative to traditional college and our teaching model is individualized to each student. Because the customization of our model is designed to change based on the student's vision we don't meet the standardized requirements of a traditional degree program.
What outcome should I expect from my Divergent U experience?
If you register for Divergent U and attend all the classes then you should expect to discover your purpose and commit to a life path that will bring you both fulfillment and wealth. If you are interested in being your own boss then you should expect to leave Divergent U with a profitable company that fully aligns with your purpose. If you aren't interested in becoming your own boss then you should expect to leave Divergent U with professional opportunities lined up that align with your purpose. Overall you should expect massive self growth in confidence and clarity, a community of life long peers, an established professional brand, and many doors opened to generate wealth in ways that uniquely align to you.
Does Divergent U offer classes online?
No. We believe all online learning should be free. Google, YouTube, and Chat GPT can teach you everything you want to know online without you investing a dollar. What Divergent U offers is a learning environment unlike any other where students are active participants in the conversations both with peers and with coaches in one on one settings. This type of learning environment cannot be achieved online. If online learning is your preference we recommend investing in a different organization that aligns with your preferences. We believe real relationships and real change happens in person. What we are building at Divergent U is a lasting community in central Florida. To gain access to our program you have to come to central Florida.
Can I register for Divergent U if I'm still interested in traditional college after?
Yes. We have had alumni who come into Divergent U lacking direction in their life path who discover the direction a traditional college degree is required for the path that's best for them. While these are rare cases for our graduates we don't believe everyone should skip traditional college. But we are also strong believers that college is only necessary for those who are extremely clear on what they want and know a traditional degree is a requirement. If you know you want to be a doctor then Divergent U isn't needed for you. If you're still unsure then the lower risk decision is taking a year of Divergent U to figure it out rather than investing more into traditional college without any direction of what you want.
How many students has Divergent U graduated and were they successful?
Divergent U has graduated over 50 students since opening in 2019. Over 60% of our graduates went on to start small businesses and 98% saw increases in both confidence and clarity. We measure success based on student happiness and we've never had a student graduate that wasn't happy with their results based on their unique ambitions. We guarantee you'll be satisfied within the first 90 days of our 9 month program or we'll give you a full refund no questions asked.

Can I apply for Divergent U if I'm not in the 18-30 age range?
Yes. We do accept students that fall outside of our recommended age range though our primary audience falls within that range. If you are a high school or home school student looking to accelerate your life path or if you're older than 30 and looking for a reset to find your next chapter then you are welcomed to apply. After you submit your application you'll be interviewed on a video call with someone from our team to clarify if Divergent U is the right fit for you.
Who are the instructors at Divergent U?
Divergent U is the brain child of our founder and lead instructor, Sam Tarell. Sam started his first business, Hoop Brothers, when he was 18 years old to help high school basketball players receive scholarships for college. Over 10 years he worked with over 10,000 student athletes helping them make decisions about their future and he eventually hired a Divergent U graduate as the CEO of Hoop Brothers and stepped down to focus on Divergent U. Since opening Divergent U, Sam has helped hundreds of students start and grow purpose driven businesses around their passions and has trained a team of instructors on all the original Divergent U material. All of which are graduates from the program. He gave a TEDx Talk in 2019 to discuss the opening of Divergent U and has been featured on dozens of podcasts, speaking engagements, and media outlets.

Can I take Divergent U while enrolled at a traditional University?
Yes. We don't recommend it because Divergent U will require a commitment of both time and focus but we have had students balance both.
How long has Divergent U existed?
Divergent U was opened in 2019 offering a 3 month program which has constantly expanded. We transitioned our program online during the pandemic and then returned to in person classes in 2022.
