Meritus University has been founded on more than 30 years of academic excellence, opportunity, and accessibility. These themes have become the common thread throughout all of Apollo Group's institutions.
Meritus University prides itself on featuring one of the world's most robust digital libraries holding 20 million full-text articles; a learning model that employs virtual methods and materials as a bridge to more engaged, relevant, and personalized learning; classes purposely kept to fewer than 20 students to encourage active participation, lively discussion, and in-depth learning; and one of the most comprehensive systems for continuous curriculum improvement of any institution in the world.

The mission of Meritus University is to foster relevant and innovative learning that meets the needs of a diverse student population, their employers and communities. Adapting college degree programs to an ever-changing world, our educational philosophy facilitates critical thinking, collaboration and leadership by integrating academic theory with best-practice applications. The university is inclusive and provides access to students beyond traditional classroom walls while being respectful of and responsive to diverse learning styles and cultures.
In Canada, education is regulated by the Provincial governments. At the post-secondary level, there is no national accrediting or quality-assurance body, nor is there a national ranking system for universities. Provincial governments grant charters to universities and authorize them to operate and grant college degrees. The standards that must be met to operate a university and grant university degrees are high and consistent across Canada, leading to a uniformly high quality of education at all Canadian universities. Students can be assured that if they study at a Canadian university that has degree-granting status approved by a provincial government, the programs offered meet the normal high standards expected of all universities in Canada.
Meritus University is approved by the Government of New Brunswick to offer university degrees. This should enable students to transfer credits to another institution. However, transferability of credits is always at that institution's discretion and based upon the student's program of choice.
