University of Phoenix to affiliate with University of Idaho

To advance our mission of providing our students with the best, most career-relevant education possible, University of Phoenix entered into discussions with the University of Idaho (“U of I”) regarding a potential affiliation of our two institutions. The University of Phoenix now announces that it will be acquired by a non-profit entity affiliated with the University of Idaho System. This action will provide a path to full non-profit status for University of Phoenix, which will ultimately operate as a non-profit entity within the U of I system. ​​​​​​​ 

U of I’s affiliation with University of Phoenix unites the two institutions in a shared mission to illuminate and elevate students by expanding access to affordable, career-relevant online education.

University of Phoenix primarily serves students who are working adult learners, while U of I will remain Idaho’s land-grant, residential university serving primarily traditional learners.

The acquisition is contingent on accreditor approvals.
