A Degree on Your Terms

Say goodbye to the burden of large upfront tuition fees. Our pay-as-you-go model and predictable pricing puts you in the driver's seat.

Monthly tuition for a degree starts at $... costing 87% less than the average online U.S. degree.


Predictable Pricing, Unmatched Flexibility

At Nexford, we believe quality education should be accessible and affordable. That's why we offer a unique tuition model tailored to your local economy, ensuring you receive a world-class education at a price that makes sense for you.

With our degree and certificate programs, you pay a fixed monthly fee in your local currency, and the faster you finish, the less you pay overall. There are no hidden costs or surprises.

Study 100% online, at your own pace, and earn a US-accredited, globally recognized credential that prepares you for a successful future.

Your investment in a Nexford education is an investment in yourself.

Your Total Tuition Investment is Predictable

We believe in transparent pricing and financial predictability. That's why we cap your total tuition cost based on the standard program completion time and your local tuition rate:

  • Master's degree: 18 months
  • Bachelor's degree: 48 months
  • Associate degree: 24 months

Focus on Your Studies, Not on Tuition Costs: Even if your studies take longer than the standard completion time, you won't incur additional tuition fees. For example, if you're pursuing a Master's degree and it takes you 24 months to complete, you'll only pay the tuition amount for an 18-month program as long as you remain enrolled and complete within 27 months. This guaranteed maximum cost gives you peace of mind and allows you to focus on your studies and career goals without worrying about unexpected tuition increases.

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

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.
