UoPeople Partnerships – Nomination Process

UoPeople is proud to partner with University of California, Berkeley, New York University, and University of Edinburgh to identify UoPeople Degree Seeking Students who are eligible to apply for admission and transfer to these institutions. Admission to both programs is highly competitive and selective.

Prospects for nomination by UoPeople to transfer to Berkeley’s College of Letters and Science are top-performing UoPeople Associate’s degree graduates, with priority given to residents of California. UoPeople students admitted to transfer to Berkeley continue their undergraduate studies at Berkeley and are responsible for all tuition payments due to Berkeley; these students are also eligible to apply to Berkeley for financial aid.

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.

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.

Finalists selected for UoPeople’s nomination to UC Berkeley and NYU Abu Dhabi will work under the guidance of the Dean of Student Affairs in submitting their applications for admission.
