The Gates are Open!

Following our recent accreditation we have further opened the gates of education, making tuition-free, online, academic degrees available for all qualified individuals!

Our numbers continue to increase and support for University of the People is constantly growing. We recently held the first ever 'Friends of UoPeople' event in NY where graduates, students, volunteers and donors joined together to celebrate the University’s accreditation and to strengthen our mission of providing access to education to all. 

Without the support of generous donors such as yourself this would not have been possible – thank you for your continued support of our mission to ensure that no qualified individual is denied access to education.

Opening the Gates of Higher Education for All!

University of the People is proud to announce our recent accreditation by a US accreditor, the DETC. This accreditation enables us to further open the gates of education, making tuition-free, online, academic degrees available for all qualified individuals.

Your continued support in our mission is integral to our success – together we can democratize education and ensure that higher education truly is a right for all, and not a privilege for a few.

Our numbers have increased: to date, UoPeople has admitted over 1700 students from 142 countries to its degree programs in Computer Science and in Business Administration. UoPeople has arranged numerous scholarship funds, all designed to meet the unique needs of its diverse student body.

There are many more students who are still denied access to higher education. Tuition rates are skyrocketing worldwide. UNESCO stipulates by 2025, 98 million individuals will be unable to attend university because there won't be enough places at existing universities. University of the People provides the tuition-free, accredited, online solution.

Without the support of generous donors such as yourself this would not have been possible – thank you for your continued support of our mission to ensure that no qualified individual is denied access to education.

UoPeople - opening the gates of higher education

University of the People is continually expanding our worldwide partnerships in order to open the gates of higher education to as many students worldwide as possible. Corporate partners, organizations, and generous individuals make our mission to democratize education a reality.

As online learning becomes a growing trend worldwide, we believe that education should be a right for all, and not a privilege for a few. This trend of online learning provides the necessary tools to reach those who were previously constrained and unable to access higher education. To date, over 1500 students from 137 countries have been admitted. UoPeople continued to attract grassroots support- with more people showing their support by joining its Facebook page- and continued to attract media attention- appearing in numerous news articles. It worked on its scholarship system, warding scholarships to deserving students, including several women. It also opened a Micro-Scholarship Portal, where donors can help students in need directly. It also strengthened its academic leadership and top administration, adding new board members and academic personnel to its advisory boards.

Thank you very much for your generous donations.
