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.

We've made tuition affordable, so you won't need federal financial aid in the first place! Calculate what you'll pay at our tuition page. We can help you source local financial support. Email help@nexford.org to find out more.

You might be eligible for a scholarship. See our current scholarships, including the Nexford Financial Need Scholarship, here.

Learn how to build a case for financing your studies.

Yes, we do! To support learners who are academically prepared for college but who lack the financial means to attend, Nexford University created the Nexford Financial Need Scholarship.


The Nexford Financial Need Scholarship was developed to benefit learners who meet a set of criteria to determine their financial need. The criteria includes, among other items, the employment level and number of financially dependent family members the applicant has. There are limited scholarships available each term. Each application is evaluated by the Scholarship Committee, after detailed information is provided by the applicant. The scholarship decision is final, with no appeal process.


There is a limited quantity of scholarship slots available — discuss with a Nexford Application Specialist or contact help@nexford.org to learn more.


You can also visit Nexford.org/scholarships to check out the terms and conditions of the other scholarships available to learners you may be interested in.


Yes - please click here to view.

Yes, there is! Before your first month, you'll have a whole week where you can log in to the online platform at no extra cost, explore where you'll take courses, and connect with your success advisor and faculty.

Orientation is designed to make you feel confident and comfortable before your first course.

We'll send you an email with more information about a week before you're set to start. Get ready!

Each course contains six modules that build on each other. You'll complete them in order, and show you've mastered the content.

When you enroll in a course, you'll be able to see all six modules in your dashboard right away, so you can start planning ahead.

Every module teaches business skills you'll use. Practice your skills as you go with practical assignments. Then, at the end of the whole course, tie your learning together with a final assessment.

The feedback you receive will be valuable for upcoming modules and courses to build on your knowledge as you go.

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).

Under Accepted Evaluation Pending (AEP) status, you acknowledge that your application for full admission to Nexford University (NXU) is not complete, and that you will be automatically placed under provisional admission status. Specifically, you have not submitted one or more of the following documents for review by NXU Admissions:

  • A scan or photo of your government-issued identification and a passport-style photo or “selfie.”
  • Official transcripts showing completion of high school diploma or GED (General Educational Development or equivalent certificate (e.g. HiSET, TASC, etc))
  • Official transcript(s) from school(s) attended previously (other university, college, etc.)
  • Evidence of English language proficiency (one of the following):
    • Certificate of English proficiency recognized by NXU that was issued within the past 2 years, affirming that you earned at least the minimum qualifying score (see the Minimum Score Required for English Proficiency section University Catalog)

Please keep in mind that any incorrect or unreadable documents submitted will also place you under the provisionally admitted status. The AEP status, i.e., provisional admission, will remain until all remaining required documentation is submitted correctly and accurately.

While on AEP status, you are entitled to enroll in one (1) NXU course in the degree program of your choosing, subject to the following restrictions:

  • The course must be in a degree program (AAS, Bachelor of Business Administration, or MBA) for which you are qualified (as provisionally established by the partial application submitted and any supporting documentation provided by the deadline noted below). If the information provided is determined to be inaccurate or misleading while you are under AEP status, the University reserves the right to unenroll you from the course and place you in a different course, or to nullify your application
  • Before the start of the course, you must complete NXU’s Orientation for new learners with a passing grade, else you will need to retake NXU Orientation the following month, and accordingly delay the start of your program until the first of the month after Orientation

In order to apply your completed course towards your intended degree program, you must:

  • Submit all remaining application materials to NXU within 60 days of the enrollment start date; and
  • Meet the University’s minimum academic requirements for successfully completing the course

If you do not submit all your remaining application materials to NXU by the day-60 deadline, then:

  • 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 will 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
  • In the case of missing evidence of English language proficiency, Admission Officers may request alternative supporting materials that might assist the University in certifying their English proficiency status
  • If admission documents are still outstanding after the two (2) month suspension, you will be administratively dismissed from your program
  • You will have to reapply through the Office of Admissions (admissions@nexford.org) along with submitting missing application materials at the time of readmission to Nexford University, after which you may resume your studies on the first day of the next month


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.


According to the University records retention policy, all outcomes based on the supporting materials provided remain in learners’ records. Any documents received by Nexford University will not be returned to the applicant/learner and cannot be reissued to the applicant/learner or another institution.

Please note that you will be responsible for any costs associated with the submission of your completed application for review by NXU Admissions, and for the monthly tuition fees associated with your first-course enrollment as an AEP learner.

As an AEP learner, enrolled in a course, you will be subject to the same academic policies applicable to all NXU degree learners, which include, but are not limited to:

  • Courses run for 54 days
  • Each course is divided into 6 modules and a final project, each with specific deadlines
  • Learners are required to engage in their course by day 10, else they will be dismissed from the course
  • Learners may receive module deadline extensions under certain restrictions
  • Learners may resubmit module assignments under certain restrictions
  • Learners may not resubmit a course final project
  • Learners may request an Incomplete in a course under certain restrictions – subject to review/approval by your professor – which, if granted, extends the course’s closing date to day 70
  • Learners may withdraw from a course until day 38 of the term

(Additional details pertaining to these and other pertinent academic policies are discussed in NXU’s Orientation)

For more information about Nexford’s Accepted Evaluation Pending (AEP) status, please contact help@nexford.org.
