Our Fees

Is UoPeople completely free? Are there any costs?

Through our unique tuition-free higher education model, we have removed most of the costs for students to attend university. However, we still have some fees to help us keep UoPeople running, to take care of all the processing work, to run the university, and provide excellent services to our students.
