Advice for learners

Will Nexford remain open?

We understand that the COVID-19 health crisis is affecting your life and the lives of those around you. Behind the scenes, Nexford’s team of experts is remote working, too. Online programs at Nexford are moving forward as planned. Our service offering is designed for volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA) – it’s actually part of Nexford’s curriculum – so we help you adapt to evolving needs.

I'm worried about my tuition payments, what should I do?

In these uncertain times, if you’re truly worried you can take a leave of absence and press pause on your education until you feel more able to return to us. We’ve now increased the amount of leave you can take, which you can use at any time – it’s not a one-time allowance. Life happens! It’s there if you need it.

  • On the Bachelor's of Business Administration program, your allowance of leave has increased from 8 months to 10 months
  • On all other programs, your allowance of leave has increased from 4 months to 6 months

Advice for prospective learners

Is Nexford University open?

These are uncertain and challenging times. As universities around the world rush to move their programs online, we’re born online and ready. Behind the scenes, Nexford’s team of experts is remote working: it’s what we do.

How can I apply?

During these challenging times, we’ve made things simpler: you can apply now, start learning and send us certain documents later. We know that during lockdown periods, immediately getting your transcripts will be harder. So, due to these exceptional circumstances, you now have 60 days from enrolling to submit any missing transcripts and documents.

I’m worried about paying tuition, what should I do?

We aim to be the most affordable American university in the world. Our monthly payments are affordable so that you can access the education you need for the future you want. You can pay monthly tuition and cancel anytime. In these uncertain times, if you’re truly worried, you can also take a leave of absence and press pause on your education until you feel more able to return to us.
