Albizu University’s small class sizes and student-faculty ratio are some of the main reasons why students want to attend Albizu University. We typically enroll approximately 2,079 students across all programs each academic year. The average class size is 15-25 students for the core classes and 10-15 for elective classes.
Albizu University accepts applications for admission from students who transfer from postsecondary institutions accredited by a regional or national accrediting agency that is recognized by the US Department of Education. The credit transfer process is carried out by evaluating students’ completed courses and establishing the corresponding equivalence with the courses offered by the Albizu University. Each program director is responsible for determining the equivalence of every course according to the home institution’s catalog and the official descriptions of their courses. These official documents must be provided by the student for comparison purposes.
The university offers flexible course schedules during the day, evening, and online. Additionally, it offers the hybrid option for certain programs, which is both online and on-site.
The EXADEP or the GRE is required to apply for admission to graduate programs.
