As a premiere American university in the Caribbean, the University of the Virgin Islands welcomes students from the U. S. Virgin Islands, the U. S. mainland and all around the world. Throughout our history we’ve helped our students create better futures for themselves and their communities – and we want to help you do the same.
At UVI, you’ll be energized by meaningful, challenging coursework and inspired by the area’s rich culture. Our academic programs are rich with intellectual development and hands-on learning. Think about the fascinating sights and unique experiences you could have here among our diverse community of students. It’s an educational experience like no other.
UVI prepares you for a future where you can make a difference anywhere around the globe. Because class sizes are small, you’ll not only receive personal attention from our accomplished professors, you’ll be challenged to think, grow and expand your horizons.
Whether you’re from the Caribbean or the U. S. mainland, UVI is more affordable than you might think. Because we’re a publicly funded university, we work to keep our tuition low. We also offer scholarships, loans, employment programs and tuition payment plans to help you join our vibrant community.

Dr. Xuri Maurice Allen
Admissions has been an integral part of my life since 1983, my first year of college! I became an Admissions Tour Guide in the second-semester of my freshman year and that started the chain of events that have led me to full-time, professional work in Admissions for over 15 years. As Director of Admissions/Recruitment, I want every admissible prospective student to attend – and graduate from – this Undeniably Viable Institution! Learn more about Dr. Allen.
Mr. Marcel Lindsey, '13
I am the admissions recruiter for the Albert A. Sheen Campus on St. Croix.

Essentially, I am a voice to the community encouraging others to pursue their dreams through the many distinguished educational programs that UVI has to offer. Learn more about Mr. Lindsey.

This fall’s orientation for new and transfer students enrolling in the University of the Virgin Islands will feature first-ever convocation sessions for new students on UVI’s campuses on St. Thomas and St. Croix. “This year marks the beginning of a new tradition: the New Student Convocation,” said UVI Provost Dr. Camille McKayle. She described the convocation as a “formal activity that underscores, for the new students, that this is the beginning of a new phase in their lives – different from high school and uniquely UVI.” A news release is available in the Media Section of the UVI website – http://www.uvi.edu – and from this direct link.
