FAQ

Your Grade Point Average (GPA) is the average of all the grades you earn in your degree. We calculate your GPA on a four-point scale: 

  • As receive 4.0 
  • Bs receive 3.0 
  • Cs receive 2.0 
  • Fs receive 0.0

We don't grant D or E grades. To hold your scholarship, you'll need to keep your GPA above 2.5 for BBA, and 3.0 for MBA

After signing up and applying with your GTBank email address, once your application to Nexford University has been processed and admissions offered, you’ll receive a unique code that will reduce your tuition fees by 10%. Enter this code when you enroll. Make sure you use the code within 30 days of receiving it – otherwise it will expire.

Remember, you'll need to pay for the remaining 90% of your tuition. So, while our tuition fees are designed to be affordable, we still recommend that you check them before applying.

With a 10% scholarship, you'll pay an average of $2160 for your MBA ($144 per month).

You must be a prospective learner to apply for the GTBank Employee Scholarship. If you're a current learner, we have many more opportunities planned: stay tuned!

Yes! You'll still need to enroll. Once you receive an official email that you've been awarded a scholarship, and that you have been admitted to Nexford University, you must enroll within 30 days using your unique email code.

Your scholarship will expire if not used within 30 days.

When enrolling, you'll have the opportunity to choose your program start date because we understand learners often need time to make plans before they can start a program.

Nexford University FAQ

Nexford University is accredited by Accreditation Service for International Schools, Colleges and Universities (ASIC), which is an independent body providing accreditation services for independent, further and higher education colleges.

ASIC accreditation helps students and parents make a more informed choice and will also help a school, college, university, training provider or distance education provider, demonstrate to the international student body that they are a high-quality institution.

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.

Top MBA FAQ

Yes! We know that graduation is a time to celebrate your success with your friends, family and loved ones. Nexford will run local (in certain countries) and global graduation ceremonies, and plans to host a US graduation in the future too.

Affordability is in our mission: we want you to access high-quality, online education, no matter where you live in the world.

We are a mission-driven organization and a Public Benefit Organization (PBC). That means we're for-profit, but we prioritize public benefit every time.

You have almost completed your application! Before you sign and submit the required documentation, the below statements will help you understand the next steps of your admission to Nexford University (NXU).

Your application will shortly be reviewed by the Admissions team. If you are admitted, you will be admitted under one of two types of admission:

Full admission

This will be granted if your application has met the admission criteria and all submitted admission documents are complete, reviewed and accepted by the University’s Office of Admissions.

OR

Provisional admission

We need proof that you completed a Bachelor's degree at an accredited institution in a business-related field. If your degree is in a different field, you will be provisionally accepted into the MBA program until you have successfully completed Nexford University business foundation courses. This step is designed to ensure that you have the necessary business foundations knowledge necessary to succeed in our rigorous MBA program.

If your application has met the admission criteria through self-certification but supporting admission documents are unofficial or incomplete, students receive a notice of provisional admission. You will be able to begin learning under the status of Accepted Evaluation Pending (AEP) but you will need to provide all necessary documentation within 60 days in order to be fully matriculated.

Once enrolled, you can still complete courses under the Accepted Evaluation Pending status. If you do not provide the documentation within the required timeframe:

  • You will be administratively dismissed
  • You will not receive academic credit for any completed course(s) and will instead be eligible for a non-degree certificate of completion. This certificate can be evaluated for possible credit if you are accepted into an NXU program in the future
  • Upon submission of the missing admissions documentation, you may complete the readmission process

    and resume your studies on the first day of the next month


Please note that if any information you provide is determined to be inaccurate or misleading, the university reserves the right to unenroll you from the course and either place you in a different course or nullify your application.

By submitting the application, you agree to us collecting any missing official transcripts and diplomas from your previous learning institution(s). Click here to read our full terms and conditions.

Nexford graduates are just as qualified as any traditional university degree holder, and they’re also likely to have more relevant competencies. The kind that modern employers urgently require. Our academic programs are designed based on industry and employment needs. We align with real employers to equip you with the skills to thrive in today’s workplace.

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.

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.

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

Starting August 1, 2022, Nexford University will begin reviewing requests from learners for transfer credit. In order for transfer credit to be awarded, an official transcript from awarding institution must be submitted for review.  Learners may review the transfer credit policy in the University catalog.

Want to transfer your Nexford credits elsewhere? Each university has it's own credit transfer policy, so we recommend you contact them directly as it is the decision of the receiving school if transfer credits are approved.

When you apply, you'll pay a one-off fee of $20, which allows us to process your application.

You'll need an undergraduate degree to apply for the MBA program. Nexford University accept applications globally. We understand that your qualification may not specifically say that you hold a bachelor's degree in your country, but it may be equivalent to a US Bachelor's degree. We'll be happy to have your credential reviewed! Get in touch with our Admissions team to know if you are qualified: admissions@nexford.org

 

However, your degree or qualification doesn't need to be in business.

 

If you have a degree in another discipline, you'll take four 6-8 week Business Foundation courses. Here, you'll learn the baseline business skills you need for our broader MBA. Upon successful completion, start taking MBA core courses.

 

If you have studied business before, you'll enter straight into the MBA and start taking your core courses.

To apply for an MBA, check out our graduate admission requirements.

We’re a brand new university, born different and designed to enhance higher education. Our core aim is to bridge career ambitions with academic programs that will help you achieve your goals. At this stage, we won’t be awarding credit for past work experience. This may change in the near future.

All applicants to Nexford’s MBA degree must provide proof that they completed a bachelor’s degree at an accredited institution in a business-related field, or equivalent for international institutions, with a valid copy of their official diploma and transcript. If applicants are not able to provide these documents, they must submit an explanation in writing together with any supporting materials that might assist the university in certifying their graduate status. If you’ve graduated from an institution where the primary language of instruction was English, we will rely on your transcript to prove English proficiency. If your prior education was not in English, we’ll need to confirm English proficiency as part of our process to ensure you’re equipped to succeed at Nexford.
