Providing Personalized Education Since 1991
University of the Potomac is an independent institution focused on providing education to a diverse, multi-cultural student population. UOTP’s student-to-faculty ratio provides an unprecedented level of mentoring to help.
Fully Online: Fully online programs allows you to study when and where you like. There are no scheduled classes, so students work with their professors through UOTP’s digital learning platform. This is great for those who like maximum independence and flexibility.
Once-a-Week on Campus: While still allowing for flexibility, the hybrid option requires students to attend class with their professors once-a-week. This helps build interpersonal communication and collaboration skills along with working through digital platforms.
