Learning Experience FAQ

Can I connect with someone in Nigeria?

You can! Feel free to:

What if my previous school can’t provide my required documents in time for my Nexford application?

If your documents aren’t ready, let us know at help@nexford.org. You can start your program now and upload missing documents later!

Does WES recognize Nexford degrees?

WES is unable to review any of our credentials right now.

You are more than welcome to wait until Nexford has US accreditation to have WES review your degree, or, you could have your degree authenticated by the US Department of State or explore the Alliance of Credential Evaluation Services of Canada process. We want to support you in this process, so please let us know whether you’d like to pursue any of these routes and we’ll gladly work with you to make this happen. Contact alumni@nexford.org if you’ve graduated or your success advisor if you’re a current learner.

If you’ll like to get your Nexford degree authenticated, please request an ‘official true copy of the credentials’ you’d like to have authenticated from registrar@nexford.org. Once you receive the copy, follow the process outlined here by the US State Department to get them authenticated for use in your home country.

Nexford can also handle the authentication process on your behalf for a non-refundable processing fee of US$100. For this service, please contact us at registrar@nexford.org

In some cases, you may also need to get your credentials authenticated by your country’s embassy in Washington, DC. To find out, you will have to check with your country’s embassy in Washington, DC.

If you need assistance, please contact the Nexford registrar at registrar@nexford.org

Once you receive our authenticated documents, Nexford is unable to help with any further authentication in your home country. You’ll need to handle any local processes on your own.

Can I get a visa to travel abroad with Nexford?

We're based in Washington DC, and we're 100% online. That means you have the freedom to study from your home country and graduate with an American degree. You're welcome to study in the US, but unfortunately, we're not able to help with your travels or visa.

All Nexford learners have the chance to join our graduation ceremony in Washington DC, where you can celebrate with learners and faculty. Nexford University can provide you with a letter stating that you are indeed an enrolled learner at our university and have completed your degree requirements.

The letter will also state that we are holding a graduation ceremony in Washington DC, where we are licensed and based. You may use that letter to apply for a visit visa to attend the ceremony.

Do you have a physical campus?

We're 100% online, so we don't have a campus! Our learners are our priority, which means we let you invest in your future – not a costly campus. (Affordability is our biggest mission!)

What is the university experience at Nexford like?

Nexford's learning experience is unlike any other. Think engaging, interactive online learning that helps you gain the skills you need – fast.

The online learning environment contains everything you need to learn at Nexford. It's where you'll take courses, chat with peers and faculty, submit assignments, receive feedback, and track your grades. It's also where you'll manage your enrollment, add courses, and pay your tuition.

The first thing you'll see when you log in is your dashboard: all the courses you're enrolled in, and easy links for everything else. Click around and explore: it's interactive so you can get the best results.

Overwhelmed? Don't be! You'll get a full tour of the learning environment during orientation week. You're in safe hands with us.

Are you accredited by National Universities Commission (NUC)?

NUC currently does not recognize nor have any regulatory cover for foreign universities or fully online universities. To put it into perspective, just the same way NUC can’t accredit a traditional American university which is outside of NUC’s jurisdiction, it also can’t accredit Nexford University. This may affect Nexford bachelor’s degree graduates who are looking to pursue NYSC, although graduates of Nexford University are still eligible to apply for a certificate of exclusion which is an official NYSC certificate.
