Why Choosing UoPeople is Financially Smart


We are tuition-free!



It is the University’s mission to provide affordable, tuition-free education for everybody. It is our goal to make higher-education accessible to all – anytime, anywhere. To learn more about what it means to be tuition-free, click here.


As a tuition-free University, UoPeople does not charge students for course instruction, textbooks, or any other course materials. To help support the University’s mission, UoPeople charges a $60 application fee, and an Assessment Fee per course completed ($120 for the undergraduate program courses). For those who cannot afford these fees, scholarships are available.


Our fees are never charged in advance nor all at once. Students pay for their studies on a course-by-course basis at the end of each term.
