UoPeople Partnerships – Nomination Process
UoPeople is proud to partner with New York University, McGill University, Long Island University, Effat University, and University of Edinburgh to identify UoPeople Degree Students who are eligible to apply for admission and transfer to these institutions. Admission to all programs is highly competitive and selective.
Prospects for nomination by UoPeople for admission to New York University – Abu Dhabi are high- performing UoPeople students who have studied full-time at UoPeople for at least one year, with a preference given to international students. Students admitted to NYU Abu Dhabi move to the United Arab Emirates to begin their undergraduate studies anew; courses from UoPeople are not transferrable. Students are responsible for all tuition payments due to NYU Abu Dhabi; these students are eligible to apply to NYU for financial aid.
Prospects for nomination by UoPeople for admission to McGill University, Long Island University, Effat University, and University of Edinburgh, are high-performing UoPeople associate degree graduates. Due to scholarship availability, it is recommended that those applying to Long Island University reside in the United States. The University of Edinburgh partnership is open to Health Science Associate Degree graduates with permission to stay in the UK as a refugee. Students are responsible for all tuition payments and are eligible to apply to each specific institution for financial aid.
All questions about eligibility and admissions should be directed to the attention of your Program Advisor. High performing students interested in being nominated by UoPeople may request a UoPeople Partnership Nomination Application; students may submit a nomination application no more than one time for each program.
Completed UoPeople Partnership Nomination Applications will be reviewed by the Office of Student Affairs, and applicants will be notified as to whether they will continue to the next stage of consideration by the University. Those continuing in the nomination process will work directly with the Office of Student Affairs, but, at any point, they may be advised that their nomination is no longer under consideration. Appeals are not available.
University of the People also has an initiative with Harvard Business School Online which allows its students to take a selection of HBS Online courses as part of their studies through the Collaborating Colleges program. All questions about eligibility should be directed to the attention of your Program Advisor.
