“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.
If we award a NewU Scholarship to you, your tuition may become even lower than our already affordable posted rate.

See How Much Financial Aid You Could Receive
For Applicants who do NOT require a US visa
IMPORTANT: We receive a large number of request from international students. For our first academic year (Fall 2021 – Spring 2022), we are unfortunately not in a position to admit international students yet. If you are an international student who requires a visa to study at NewU University, we ask that you fill in our Keep in Touch form here, and we will let you know when you should apply. Thank you.
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.
