Top tuition FAQs

We believe everyone deserves access to high-quality education, regardless of where they live. That's why affordability is at the heart of everything we do. Here's how we make it happen:

  • Mission-driven approach: We're a Public Benefit Corporation (PBC). This means, while we are a for-profit company, our primary mission is to provide widespread access to affordable education.
  • Global focus: Our online model means we don't have the same overhead costs as traditional universities, allowing us to pass those savings on to you.

We understand that education is a major investment. That's why we use a tiered tuition system, ensuring affordability for students around the world.  To see which tuition tier your country falls in, please visit our tuition tier page. You can see what your monthly costs would be for each program at the top of our tuition page.

Flat, pay-as-you-go tuition fees

Traditional universities charge tuition per credit or per course. At Nexford, you pay a flat monthly tuition fee. This means you can take as many courses as you can successfully handle in each term without any extra charges. If you have the time and maintain good grades, taking more courses lets you finish your degree faster, ultimately  saving you money on tuition.

We want to make paying for your education as convenient as possible. You can choose from:

  • Credit card
  • Debit card
  • PayPal
  • Bank wire transfer
