Ana G. Méndez University System Supports Students From Puerto Rico to Continue Their Careers

The university will allow students to easily continue their studies at its campuses in the Continental United States


MIAMI, Oct. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — The universities of Ana G. Méndez University System (AGMUS)—Universidad del Turabo, Universidad del Este, Universidad Metropolitana and Universidad Ana G. Méndez- will allow students enrolled in any other university from Puerto Rico to continue their studies at any of their 5 campuses in the continental United States. It is of great importance that students know that AGMUS values their careers and would like them to consider their options for the remainder of the school year. “Ana G. Méndez University System is a big family and we want to help our brothers and sisters right away. Therefore, we have established an emergency response plan to help our students relocate to any of our U.S. campuses in the smoothest and fastest possible way so they can complete their semester on time,” said Luis Zayas, Vice-President for National Affairs.

AGMUS has put in effect a special assistance program for students that need to relocate to the continental United States during this emergency and time of need. Our mission is to provide personalized alternatives so that students can continue their academic and professional degrees.
