NewU Tuition Relative to Others

Source: Institutional websites, February 2021.

NewU Bachelor’s Degree programs are designed to take only 3 years to earn, not 4. All other universities require students to pay for a 4-year program.

“Tuition freeze” means that NewU will not increase the posted tuition for the 3 years required to graduate . NewU is  the only university in the the DC metro area to make a Tuition Freeze guarantee to its students.

Sponsored Scholarships may be used towards tuition only.

Sponsored Stipends

We may award Sponsored Stipends from externally-funded gifts or grants to NewU.

Sponsored Stipends may be used towards any NewU expenses.

Installment Payment Plans

NewU will review installment plan requests, and approve them at our discretion based on the individual circumstances of each student.

Need-Blind Admissions. Need-Based Financial Aid.

What does it mean?  NewU makes admissions decisions without any review or consideration for a student’s financial need.  Once admitted, a student may be eligible for Financial Aid solely on the student’s financial situation.

This is another one of many ways in which we stand out from other universities.  We admit students based on their ability to succeed at NewU, not on how much they can afford to pay.  We then allocate Financial Aid to those who need it the most.  This way we strive to ensure a more equitable access to higher education, and a fairer outcome for all our students.
