Tuition

New Charter University operates on 12-month terms and charges a monthly tuition rate per degree level. Undergraduate programs like an Associate’s or a Bachelor’s degree cost $299 per month for students enrolled in a degree program or $300 per course for non-degree seeking students. Graduate programs cost $499 per month for students enrolled in a degree program or $1000 per course for non-degree seeking students.

Financial Aid

We don’t offer U.S. Federal financial aid, but we do offer a variety of scholarships.
As part of our effort to lower our overhead and reduce costs and pass the savings on to our students, we don’t participate in the U.S. Federal Title IV financial aid program. What does this mean for you? No financial aid = no student loan debt.
Please note that Title IV loans obtained before attending New Charter cannot be deferred via enrollment at the University.

How the Billing System Works

At New Charter University, our entire mission is to make your education as financially manageable as possible. Please consult your student advisor for details.

Is there a limit on the number of courses I can take in a term?

Students can take as many courses in a term as they can successfully complete.  In general, students will not be enrolled in a new course if there are fewer than three weeks left in the term.

University Withdrawal and Refund Policy

Students seeking to withdraw from their academic program may notify the university in any manner. A written request to withdraw is preferred.  Students may also contact Student Services at 801 – 883 – 8336 and ask for the Office of the Registrar.

Refunds, if applicable, will be made by Student Accounts within 30 days of the student’s withdrawal.  The withdrawal becomes official when the student receives final written notification from the University.  If you have any questions about the status of your refund, please contact the Student Accounts Office at [email protected].

New Charter University is confident in the quality of our programs and consequently provides a liberal refund policy for students in their first term. Students enrolled in their first-ever term at the University, and who cancel their enrollment within 60 days of the start of the term, qualify for 100% tuition refund if all the following conditions are met:

  1. The student has not taken any Pre-Finals for any course, and
  2. The student has not submitted a performance assessment for grading (project, portfolio, essay, etc.) or taken a proctored examination for any course.

For all other students, the table below lists the percentage of tuition that will be refunded to students who cancel their enrollment prior to the end of a term.
