University of the People does not charge students for their educational instruction, course materials or annual enrollment. It does charge modest fees for application and examination processing. The current fee schedule is as follows:
- Application Fee - $60
The Application Fee is non-refundable and must be submitted by the applicant along with the application for admission. The Application Fee does not include any additional fees that may be required for third-party evaluation.
- Assessment Fee - $200
Students are required to pay an Assessment Fee of $200 for every end-of-course examination that they take.
The estimated total fees for the MBA are as follows: $2,460
Starting from T2-AY2021, which begins November 2020, we are updating our fees. Under the new update, all new students will be required to pay an assessment fee of $240 per graduate course. Therefore, applicants who want to lock-in the current fee rate, and continue to pay an assessment fee of only $200 per graduate course must save their spot by August 22, 2020.

Students have the right to cancel their Enrollment Agreement at any time and are not charged any Assessment Fees during the first seven days of enrollment or prior to the first day of classes. A student’s notice of cancellation must be received by the University in writing via email to [email protected]. Notice of cancellation is effective if it shows that the student no longer wishes to be bound by the Enrollment Agreement or to continue his or her attendance at the University. The notice of cancellation is effective five days after the time the University receives notification of the cancellation. During this time, the student may notify the University that he or she no longer wishes to cancel his or her enrollment.
