University of the People will be offering two programs to start: a bachelor degree in Business Administration and a bachelor degree in Computer Science. To be considered for either program, students must have a high school diploma (or its equivalent), sufficient knowledge of the English language, and Internet access.
University of the People will not be charging tuition. However, students will be asked to pay a small fee to register ($15 to $50) and a moderate fee to take end of course examinations ($10 to $100). Registration and exam fees are based on students' country of origin.
