UPR accepting online applications through Jan. 31
By John McPhaul
University of Puerto Rico (UPR) Vice President of Student Affairs José Perdomo announced Monday that the online admission process for the next academic semester, which begins in August 2022, has recently begun.
The application will be available until Jan. 31 through the link upr.edu/admisiones.
“Every fourth-year high school student interested in studying at the primary educational center in Puerto Rico has the opportunity to complete the application for admission online through the portal upr.edu/admisiones,” Perdomo said in a written statement.
UPR Admissions Office Director Ivonne Calderón said that “when filling out the application, applicants can choose up to three academic programs, which must be selected in order of preference.”
“The three options can be chosen in the same campus or in different units,” she added. “In this way, the chances of being admitted will be greater.”
In addition to the admission application, in the portal upr.edu/admisiones prospective students will find information about UPR’s academic offerings, links to all the campuses and units, the contact information for admissions officers, and answers to frequently asked questions at the beginning of the university life, as well as a calendar of important dates and events.
“In the historical context in which we find ourselves, we are adjusting our services to students’ needs,” Calderón said. “Officials from the UPR admissions offices are available to guide students and families so that the admission application process is totally satisfactory and meets the expectations of those who see the university as the best option. We are available to help students who have suffered the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. We encourage you to submit your application for admission on time.”
Perdomo stressed that “all qualified students who meet the admission requirements will be admitted once their application has been completed and evaluated.” “Meanwhile, those who are on the margin of meeting the requirements will be part of a waiting list and will have the opportunity to request reconsideration,” he added.
