Processing Fees – Undergraduate Degrees
UoPeople is able to offer online degrees tuition-free because of our unique model of online higher education. The minimal processing fees we do charge help to maintain our structure and operations allowing all qualified students to receive their online degree without instruction expenses, course material or annual enrollment fees. We ask for a non-refundable application fee of $60 and assessment fee of $100 per course [paid by the end of each course] which can be covered by numerous grants and scholarships.
The estimated total fees for the associate degree are as follows: $2,060
The estimated total fees for the bachelor’s degree are as follows: $4,060
Transfer credit: If you have credits approved to transfer toward your degree, the cost per transfer course will be $17 (rather than $100 assessment fee per course). This may significantly reduce the total cost of your degree. To learn more about the transfer credits process.
