Welcome to the website of Inter Philadelphia Education Center, the academic home of Inter American University of Puerto Rico in Pennsylvania. It is my pleasure to invite you to browse our website and learn about the institution and our academic offering.

Inter American University is a private, non-profit higher education institution with deep Christian-Ecumenical roots, established in Puerto Rico in 1912. Through our history, we have taken great pride and satisfaction in preparing students to face humanistic, social and scientific endeavors.

Inter American is one of the most dynamic and active university communities in Puerto Rico and its thousands of students are its best ambassadors. It was accredited for the first time in 1944 by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools and we have maintained that accreditation ever since.

At you will find information about our academic offering in this new education center established in the United States. By coming to Philadelphia, we strengthen our commitment to continue educating the Latino community as we have done for the past 110 years.

Our commitment to the students and the university community includes offering the best access to information. We wish you the greatest success and await you at Inter Philadelphia Education Center.
