Eastern University Offers Cabrini Students Supportive Transfer Partnership

As Cabrini University closes its doors following the 2023-24 academic year, Eastern University is committed to supporting the Cabrini community through a seamless and integrated transfer partnership.

Eastern University President Ron Matthews shared the following statement:

“The Eastern University community is saddened by the closing of Cabrini University at the end of this coming academic year. Since the 1950s, we’ve enjoyed camaraderie with our Eagle Road neighbors. While we have often competed on the athletic field, we have jointly shared for over sixty years a faith-based mission to provide higher education to students with or without the means to afford it.

As Cabrini University moves to end its ongoing operations, we share with the Cabrini family a genuine sense of loss, both for its community and the world. Our thoughts are with the Cabrini community as they grapple with these changes, and we seek to nurture and celebrate Cabrini’s missional legacy. 

Eastern University has agreed to serve Cabrini University as an official transitional partner, providing assistance to its students, administration, and employees. Our objective in this relationship is to ensure the best possible transition for everyone involved. Our hearts and hands are extended in support and welcome to those seeking alternative solutions during this difficult time.

With over 90 areas of study ranging from associate through doctoral degrees, enrollment doubling over the past three years, a diverse faith-based community, a robust student life experience, excellence in academics, a full array of athletic offerings, performing arts, and student organizations, and incredibly affordable tuition, Eastern University is prepared to support students throughout their transition from Cabrini to the Eastern Community. We stand with the Cabrini Community to ensure the best outcomes possible.

While we are saddened by the Cabrini news, Eastern University appreciates and welcomes Villanova University to our community on Eagle Road. We look forward to continuing a long legacy of collaboration with our new neighbors across the street.”
