Top MBA FAQ

Yes! We know that graduation is a time to celebrate your success with your friends, family and loved ones. Nexford will run local (in certain countries) and global graduation ceremonies, and plans to host a US graduation in the future too.

Affordability is in our mission: we want you to access high-quality, online education, no matter where you live in the world.

We are a mission-driven organization and a Public Benefit Organization (PBC). That means we're for-profit, but we prioritize public benefit every time.

You have almost completed your application! Before you sign and submit the required documentation, the below statements will help you understand the next steps of your admission to Nexford University (NXU).

Your application will shortly be reviewed by the Admissions team. If you are admitted, you will be admitted under one of two types of admission:

Full admission

This will be granted if your application has met the admission criteria and all submitted admission documents are complete, reviewed and accepted by the University’s Office of Admissions.

OR

Provisional admission

We need proof that you completed a Bachelor's degree at an accredited institution in a business-related field. If your degree is in a different field, you will be provisionally accepted into the MBA program until you have successfully completed Nexford University business foundation courses. This step is designed to ensure that you have the necessary business foundations knowledge necessary to succeed in our rigorous MBA program.

If your application has met the admission criteria through self-certification but supporting admission documents are unofficial or incomplete, students receive a notice of provisional admission. You will be able to begin learning under the status of Accepted Evaluation Pending (AEP) but you will need to provide all necessary documentation within 60 days from the enrollment start date in order to be fully matriculated.

Once enrolled, you can still complete courses under the Accepted Evaluation Pending status. If you do not provide the documentation within the required timeframe:

  • You will be placed on suspension, which will run for two (2) months from date of suspension, to allow time to submit your documents
  • You will not be allowed to enroll in future courses, and not receive tuition invoices within the two-month timeframe
  • You will not receive academic credit for any completed course(s) and will instead be eligible for a non-degree certificate of completion. This certificate can be evaluated for possible credit if you are accepted into an NXU program in the future


If admission documents are still outstanding after suspension, you will be administratively dismissed from their program and must reapply to resume your program by sending a request in writing to the Office of Admissions (admissions@nexford.org) and must submit pending admission documents at the time of readmission to Nexford University.


For learners who fail to submit their pending admission documents within the 60-day deadline, exceptions can be applied in certain circumstances if the learner submits the appropriate verification and/or supporting documentation. If approved by the Manager of Admissions and Registrar, this will allow the learner a 30-day extension to submit their pending admission documents.


Please note that if any information you provide is determined to be inaccurate or misleading, the university reserves the right to unenroll you from the course and either place you in a different course or nullify your application.
