UoPeople is currently accepting new applications until JULY 8, 2012, at which point, the next period to start a new application will be in September of 2012.
As a non-profit academic institution dedicated to opening access to higher education, UoPeople has succeeded in cutting down almost the entire cost of higher education.
In order to remain sustainable, we charge small processing fees for application and examination processing. Applicants are charged a non-refundable onetime $10-$50 Application Processing Fee to cover the cost for us to review and process an application. The amount charged is based on the applicant’s place of residence – applicants from developing countries pay a lower amount.
In September, when new application acceptance will re-open, we will be introducing an Exam Processing Fee of $100 per end-of-course exam. Applicants who apply starting in September and become students, are expected to pay this fee. However, for those individuals who are unable to do so, UoPeople will have a Micro-Scholarship Portal that will enable donors to contribute directly to individual students in need of assistance. Additionally, students may apply for a UoPeople scholarship.
Our aim, as it has always been, is to see to it that no student will be denied the right to access higher education. We will remain tuition-free, meaning students will not be charged for their educational instruction, course materials or annual enrollment. Additionally, we will seek to ensure that no qualified student be denied studying with UoPeople for financial reasons.
