FAQs

Will Nexford have a graduation ceremony?

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.

What makes Nexford so affordable?

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.

Can I get federal aid or funding?

We've made tuition affordable, so you won't need federal financial aid in the first place! Calculate what you'll pay at our tuition page. We can help you source local financial support. Email help@nexford.org to find out more.

You might be eligible for a scholarship. See our current scholarships here.

Learn how to build a case for financing your studies.

Does Nexford offer scholarships?

Yes, we do! We want as many learners as possible to access university. That's why we offer scholarships for the brightest, and most innovative and driven people.

Scholarships help learners who are ready to attend university, but who don't have the financial means. Interested? See available scholarships.

Is there an orientation?

Yes, there is! Before your first month, you'll have a whole week where you can log in to the online platform at no extra cost, explore where you'll take courses, and connect with your success advisor and faculty.

Orientation is designed to make you feel confident and comfortable before your first course.

We'll send you an email with more information about a week before you're set to start. Get ready!

How is each course structured?

Each course contains six modules that build on each other. You'll complete them in order, and show you've mastered the content.

When you enroll in a course, you'll be able to see all six modules in your dashboard right away, so you can start planning ahead.

Every module teaches business skills you'll use. Practice your skills as you go with practical assignments. Then, at the end of the whole course, tie your learning together with a final assessment.

The feedback you receive will be valuable for upcoming modules and courses to build on your knowledge as you go.

Will employers in my country recognize programs offered by Nexford University?

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

How do I apply?

Applying is easy! Once you've decided on the program you want, and read up on the admissions criteria, head to apply.nexford.org to start your application. If you have everything ready, it should take you seven minutes (or faster!) to complete the form.

Download our step-by-step guide to understand what you need to do to complete your Nexford application and give yourself the best chance of acceptance.

What's the application fee?

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

What is the English test?

If you don't already have an English qualification (see what we accept), we'll ask you to take a 50-minute online EF SET test, at no cost, during your application.

We want to check how proficient you are in English (after all, it's the language we speak here at Nexford!).

The EF SET is an online test that checks your reading and listening comprehension skills. You'll take a series of multiple-choice questions and you'll get a score at the end. We just want to check you're above the minimum score we're looking for in Nexford learners.

It takes 50 minutes, so set aside a chunk of time. You won't need to do any study beforehand.

  • A desktop or tablet 
  • Headphones (or a quiet place where you can play sound out loud)
  • A stable internet connection
  • An updated internet browser
  • You'll get your results as soon as you finish the test.

The EF SET was designed to meet the high technical standards as the other standardized tests in the field, such as the TOEFL or IELTS. If you have a certificate from one of these tests, you're welcome to upload that instead of taking the EF SET.

Good luck! And remember: you can take the test as many times as you want.

Can I check the status of my application?

You can't check – but you'll get an answer within seven business days. How's that for fast!
