Verto Education is an innovative new way for students to start their college career. Through Verto, students can study abroad for the first semester or year of their undergraduate career, while still earning college credits to keep them on track to graduate in four years.
Verto also partners with over a dozen colleges, including High Point, James Madison University and the University of Oregon, to give students an admission decision and facilitate their transition on campus upon completion of a semester or year abroad.
Verto's mission is to empower every student to spend impactful time abroad during their college career, and graduate with a better understanding of themselves, and the world around them.
Verto Education is accredited through Portland State University and partners with Rustic Pathways for all program operations.
