Cross Education

University of the Potomac is an independent institution focused on providing education to a diverse, multi-cultural student population. UOTP’s student-to-faculty ratio provides an unprecedented level of mentoring to help ensure a meaningful and successful university experience.

Fully Online: Fully online programs allows you to study when and where you like. There are no scheduled classes, so students work with their professors through UOTP’s digital learning platform. This is great for those who like maximum independence and flexibility.

Once-a-Week on Campus: While still allowing for flexibility, the hybrid option requires students to attend class with their professors once-a-week. This helps build interpersonal communication and collaboration skills along with working through digital platforms.


University of the Potomac’s 28th Commencement Ceremony will be held on Saturday, June 17 at the Hyatt Regency Washington. Ceremonies will begin at 9:00 a.m. This year’s commencement address will be given by Ms. Pam El, Executive Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer of the National Basketball Association.

“We are honored to recognize our 2017 graduates,” said Dr. Clinton Gardner, President of UOTP.  “It is a privilege to see our students earn their degrees and move on to another stage in their lives.”
