How we make our decisions


The UoPeople Office of Admissions thoroughly reviews each completed application. Admittance to an undergraduate/graduate degree program is based on the readiness of the student to study for a higher education degree at an online institution. UoPeople has no entrance exams for admissions.


UoPeople considers both what applicants have achieved in the past and what evidence suggests they have the potential to achieve in the future. And, in keeping with its mission, it admits students from all parts of the globe creating a student body that mirrors today’s diverse society.


UoPeople has five terms a year, making for five application deadlines. Click here to see the upcoming deadlines.


It is crucial that applicants submit their applications in a timely manner, if interested in starting their studies immediately as our Office of Admissions will process and review applications on a rolling basis. Once applications are reviewed and a decision is made, students may begin their Foundations courses in the upcoming term.


If applicants have any questions or concerns about their application, they may contact their personal Admissions Advisor.
