In this inaugural production, Mr Shai Reshef, the President of University of People (UoPeople), talks about the ‘the first non-profit, tuition-free, American accredited online university‘.
Why choose an accredited university?
Accredited universities have high educational standards. These universities have a strong academic culture and offer quality education. Students applying to accredited universities have some of the following advantages:
- A degree from an accredited university is helpful in finding a job;
- It is easy to transfer credits;
- It is easy for students to get federal financial aid.
What is a tuition-free university?
Tuition-free universities are not-for-profit so there is no fee to attend classes. Students need not pay annual enrollment fee. However, there may be a minimal fee towards application and examination.
How does an online university work out?
Online or distance mode education is breaking the boundaries of time and space. Online universities offer courses to students in any part of the world. UoPeople is 100% online. This means, students can earn Bachelor’s or Master’s degree from America for free, and without leaving the comfort of their home. Distance education is also very flexible: Students can access material, class instructions, and assignments as per their convenience and local time zone.
