Exam Processing Fee

Starting with all new applications created from August 27, 2012, University of the People introduced an Exam Processing Fees ($100) per each end-of-course-exam, in order to cover the cost incurred by the University to process exams. Applicants who are admitted and become students, are expected to pay this fee. However, for those students who are unable to do so, UoPeople has a variety of scholarship funds available. Our aim, as it has always been, is to see to it that no qualified student will be denied the right to access higher education due to financial reasons. We will remain tuition-free, meaning students will not be charged for their educational instruction, course materials or annual enrollment. 


The determination of processing fees, as well as any University Grants or University Financial Aid, is at the sole discretion of UoPeople. University Grants and processing fees are currently determined using publicly available data from the World Bank and the CIA World Fact Book. Inclusion of a place of residence in the list does not imply any legal position of University of the People regarding its status. The University reserves the right to change the cost of the Exam Processing Fee. The amount of the Exam Processing Fee will be reviewed annually, and any change to the fee amount will be implemented as of September 1 each year. Students will be notified of the change in fees no later than June 1 each year.
