Nexford University FAQs

Nexford is 100% online, with a headquarters in Washington DC. We have no campus. Having a Nexford campus would increase our costs and, therefore, we would need to raise your tuition. Our learners are our main concern. We keep our operating costs low by being a 100% online, next-generation university. This way, we don’t need to maintain expensive classroom buildings, a campus you don’t need and other expensive add-ons.

NUC currently does not recognize nor have any regulatory cover for foreign universities or fully online universities. To put it into perspective, just the same way NUC can’t accredit a traditional American university which is outside of NUC’s jurisdiction, it also can’t accredit Nexford University. This may affect Nexford bachelor’s degree graduates who are looking to pursue NYSC, although graduates of Nexford university are still eligible to apply for a certificate of exclusion which is an official NYSC certificate. We monitor NUC regulations very closely and if they do change in the future, we will be at the forefront of these updates.
