I did an extensive search and found NCU to be the most affordable and flexible option. Looking back, I would choose NCU again.”

Dr. Mashama Sealy
PhD in Business Administration - Organization Leadership 2018

Being a working, mother of three, an online option was perfect for me. NCU didn’t require me to have to fly someplace to meet other students and professors and that was important to me, knowing that I didn’t have to prepare to leave my family.

Dr. Jennifer Koel
PhD in Education – Early Childhood Education 2018

I chose Northcentral University because of the university’s reputation and research orientation.

Dr. Kelly L. Bushéy
PhD in Psychology - General Psychology 2018

I found NCU had already received COAMFTE* accreditation, and that was really comforting to me.

Certification from a regionally accredited institution like NCU will give credence to my knowledge and expertise on the subject matter.

In addition to the flexibility, one of the primary reasons I chose NCU was for the interactions and relationships I knew I would have with the faculty.

Why Northcentral University?

    • In each and every course, one student is paired with one faculty member, resulting in a class size of one. Featuring individualized teaching through feedback, a deeper understanding of the material is achieved and a real relationship built on mutual respect is formed between the professor and the student.
    • Paying for college is a major financial commitment, so we try to keep our tuition and fees as low as possible while still providing a quality academic experience. Financial aid is available to those who qualify and our financial aid team will work with you to create the plan that best works for you.
    • As part of our commitment to excellence in online higher education, Northcentral University maintains 100% doctoral faculty, 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.
    • Accreditation is a higher education seal of approval for schools, employers, and most importantly, for students. NCU is a WSCUC accredited institution. WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC), 985 Atlantic Avenue, Suite 100, Alameda, CA 94501, 510.748.9001, WSCUC is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the Council on Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).
    • At NCU, we are dedicated to providing our students with the personal attention they look for when pursuing advanced education. We take a great amount of pride in our programs and the thousands of graduates who have achieved their goals, be it completing their bachelor's degree, obtaining a Master's degree or successfully defending their dissertation to earn their doctoral degree.
    • 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.
    • You shouldn't have to put your education on hold, at Northcentral University we offer weekly course starts to fit your schedule. With no need to wait for the start of a semester, you can start your educational journey as soon as you're ready.
    • Northcentral University has no physical residency requirements, which makes us a great fit for working professionals, as well as for military personnel and international students who do not have to relocate or spend money to travel to a campus to complete the online degree.
