Northcentral University Introduces All-Inclusive Tuition Fee Structure Effective January 2011

Global leader in 100% online higher education says move to an all-inclusive tuition program makes planning educational costs easier

PRESCOTT VALLEY, ARIZONA, December 3, 2010 — Reinforcing its commitment to meet the long-term financial needs of its rapidly growing student body of graduate and undergraduate degree Students, Northcentral University (www.ncu.edu), a global leader in 100% online higher education, today announced that, effective January 2011, it was implementing an all-inclusive tuition fee structure.

"Historically, Northcentral University has been able to provide Students with degree programs that cost between 10 - 25% less than our competition. This is one of the reasons why some of our degree programs are consistently rated a 'Best Buy’ by GetEducated.com, the national consumer group that publishes online college rankings and online university ratings along the dimensions that matter most to online students,” Dr. Clinton Gardner, President of Northcentral University, emphasized. "We believe our new all-inclusive tuition fee structure will only further reinforce the value of our degree programs.”

 The new tuition fee structure, which becomes effective January 1, 2011, will be posted on the University’s Web site (www.ncu.edu) and will include a cost comparison chart that will allow prospective Students to quickly and easily evaluate the cost effectiveness of a Northcentral University degree program as compared to the University’s major higher education competitors.

 According to Northcentral University Chief Financial Officer Chris Lynne, the decision to move to an all-inclusive tuition fee model extends the University’s ongoing policy of maintaining full transparency in every part of its program offerings. "Every full time Student who comes to Northcentral University deserves to know exactly what the cost of their degree is going to be. We form an education partnership with every one of our Students and this new tuition fee structure adds a dynamic new dimension to this partnership.”
