What does it mean to be Tuition-Free?
“Tuition-free” means that unlike other universities, UoPeople doesn’t charge students for taking courses. UoPeople also doesn’t charge students to enroll, to pay for books, or other course materials. Our unique online model of higher education allows us to bring the classroom to you– cutting the cost for our students overall.
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.
Is UoPeople’s Tuition-Free Model Too Good to Be True?
UoPeople’s Tuition-Free Model is 100% real! We offer degree programs absolutely tuition-free, thanks to our generous donors who support our mission. To help support the university’s continued operation, UoPeople charges a $60 application fee, and an Assessment Fee per course completed ($120 for the undergraduate programs, and $300 for the graduate programs). That’s it. No annual enrollment fees, and no cost for course material. For those who cannot afford these fees, scholarships are available to help support their studies.
Based on this, an associate’s degree can be completed in 2 years for $2,460, a bachelor degree can be completed in 4 years for $4,860. For graduate degree programs, the MBA can be completed in 15 months for $3,660, and the M.Ed. can be completed in 17 months for $3,960. UoPeople will never request these amounts upfront, but rather students will pay each Assessment Fee by the end of each exam period. These modest fees ensure that the University remains sustainable and can continue to provide quality education for everybody.
