Northcentral University:

Online Graduate Education at a Higher Degree

Northcentral University was founded to provide working professionals with unprecedented access to richly engaging, professionally-relevant, and academically-rigorous education. As a regionally accredited, online university, NCU offers doctoral, master’s, bachelor’s, and graduate certificates through its Schools of Business and Technology Management, Education, Psychology and Marriage and Family Sciences. NCU utilizes a one-to-one teaching model—one student is paired with a faculty member in each course— to create a more personalized, mentoring experience for students. All NCU faculty hold doctoral degrees and our doctoral programs do not have residency requirements.

Northcentral University:
Why Northcentral?





By pairing one faculty member with one student in each course as part of the One-to-One Teaching Model at NCU, we create a richer learning experience. We promote applied experiential learning (act, reflect, conceptualize and apply), to ensure that our faculty truly influence learning within Northcentral’s online delivery method.


As part of our commitment to excellence in online higher education, all Northcentral University faculty members hold doctorates, most of whom have completed their program of study at a regionally accredited institution of higher education in the discipline in which they teach or develop curricula.


Another part of the NCU difference is that, upon application to graduate school, Northcentral University does not require graduate testing such as the GRE or GMAT. This means you have the ability to earn an advanced degree on your own terms.


At Northcentral University, we pride ourselves in being completely transparent when it comes to tuition and fees. We have adopted an all-inclusive tuition model that gives you the cost of your tuition and fees in one flat program rate. The only additional cost above your program rate is books.


Accreditation is a higher education seal of approval for schools, employers, and most importantly, for students. Northcentral University is regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, 230 South LaSalle Street, Suite 7-500, Chicago, IL 60604, 1.800.621.7440,
