Collaborative Partnerships

Carlos Albizu University has a long-standing tradition of Collaborations and Partnerships with other national and international institutions, with professional associations and  societies to provide real opportunities for our academic community.

Our doors are open and we thrive on mutually beneficial partnerships, and collaborations that drive advantages and benefits to our academic community. Joint working agreements, together with a diversity of partner organizations, allow us to grow.

Over 15 formal collaborative agreements are now in place. Some of them provide students enrolled at other post-secondary institutions the opportunity to be pre-admitted to our under-graduate and graduate programs, or make extensive use of Carlos Albizu University courses and educational services to help them complete their degrees.

Educational partnerships provide real opportunities for you, such as the Consorcio de Bibliotecas Metropolitanas (COBIMET) Partnership, a skills portal Information for students, teachers and librarians aimed at promoting learning and teaching information skills.

Through established agreements with Universidad de Puerto Rico – Cayey Campus, as well as with the Universidad del Sagrado Corazón, credit transfer arrangements have been established, granting program graduates a specified number of credits toward particular Bachelor or Master Degree at Carlos Albizu University.
