UC Berkeley

We have established a partnership with University of California, Berkeley (UC Berkeley). Berkeley is accepting high-performing, qualified UoPeople Associate’s degree graduates, who wish to transfer and complete a Bachelor’s degree at Berkeley.


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 accepted to transfer to Berkeley continue their undergraduate studies at Berkeley and are responsible for all tuition payments due to Berkeley; students are eligible to apply to Berkeley for financial aid.


“UC Berkeley is proud to partner with University of the People. As a fellow Californian university, UoPeople’s mission is closely aligned with the mission of Berkeley, to open the gates to a quality higher education to every deserving student – with priority given to residents of California.” UC Berkeley Chancellor Nicholas Dirks.


According to US news, UC Berkeley is ranked as the top public university worldwide.


“We are thrilled to have this collaboration between UC Berkeley and University of the People. This recognition is the ultimate endorsement of the value of our degrees and it offers a great opportunity for our students. Now the most accomplished UoPeople students may be able to further pursue their dreams by attending one of the best universities in the world.” Shai Reshef, UoPeople President


This collaboration, along with other high profile partnerships, such as with NYU, allowing top performing UoPeople students to transfer to the exclusive NYU Abu Dhabi, reinforces the high level of our degrees, and is an excellent opportunity for our students to continue on to complete their bachelor degrees at two of the top universities worldwide.


We will continue to open the gates to higher education, and strive to offer our students the best opportunities available.
