Historically American. Uniquely Caribbean. Globally Interactive.

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.  Apply for admission to UVI.
