Following the announcement of the closure of the American University campuses, San Juan Mayor Miguel Romero Lugo announced that he is available to help students affected by the situation through the San Juan University College.

The institution, which for over 50 years has offered bachelor’s and associate degrees in accounting, criminal justice, information systems and office systems administration, among others, is ready to receive the impacted students, the mayor said.

In addition to being accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE), the University College is centrally located, just steps from Puerto Rico Coliseum José Miguel Agrelot and the Urban Train.

Likewise, Romero said, it has excellent facilities, among which its sports complex, gym, laboratories and employment office stand out. The institution has the most accessible academic credit in Puerto Rico at only $85 per credit.

“The College is distinguished by its excellent academic offerings and by the success of its graduates inside and outside of Puerto Rico,” the mayor said in a written statement.

University College also stands out for its nursing department, which has associate’s degree and bachelor’s degree programs, as well as associate degrees in instrumentation technologies, electrical power, and electronic engineering.

“Given the sudden closure, the University College will be guaranteeing the validation of credits for affected students,” Romero said. “In the same way, financial aid opportunities and payment facilities will be offered to active American University students who request a transfer for June or August of this year.”
