Our partnership with Long Island University (LIU) ensures that UoPeople students have access to a wide variety of in-demand degree programs, even if those fields require in-person or hands-on training. UoPeople students who successfully complete an associate degree in any of its undergraduate programs will be eligible to apply for admission to all of LIU’s bachelor’s degree programs.
As a fully online, tuition-free university, UoPeople recognizes limitations presented to students who wish to pursue career fields which require on-the-ground training, including in-person residencies or fellowships. This partnership with LIU ensures that UoPeople students can pursue their studies in any field they wish, without such limitations.
“At UoPeople, ensuring our students have access to the most in-demand degree programs has always been our top priority, even if we cannot offer these programs ourselves,” said UoPeople President Shai Reshef. “COVID-19 has undeniably altered our world and our priorities. While the appreciation for online education is growing, we recognize that some opportunities, such as healthcare, require on-the-ground training. We are excited to work with Long Island University to provide students with the flexibility and opportunity needed to pursue their chosen fields, and to continue to address the demands of the global workforce.”
UoPeople students who successfully complete an associate degree in any of its undergraduate programs will be eligible to apply for admission to LIU’s bachelor’s degree programs. Additionally, UoPeople bachelor’s degree graduates can continue their graduate studies at LIU, and LIU’s bachelor’s degree graduates can complete their M.Ed. or MBA at UoPeople.
“LIU is committed to giving deserving students the opportunity to take the next step in their academic journey, no matter what that step is,” said Long Island University President Kimberly R. Cline. “We are so proud to work alongside University of the People to provide further equity in education. We admire UoPeople’s commitment to its diverse student body and we are ready to aid in creating new opportunities for both of our students.”
Both institutions will collaborate to enable scholarships to ensure that financial obstacles do not prevent qualified students from taking advantage of this opportunity.
This collaboration, along with other high–profile partnerships, reinforces the quality of UoPeople’s degrees. At University of the People, we will continue to open the gates to higher education and strive to offer our students the best opportunities available.
