About Northcentral University
NCU, a regionally accredited university devoted 100 percent to distance-learning education, offers master’s and doctoral degree programs in business and psychology designed specifically to meet the needs of career-minded adults.
What makes NCU unique is that there are absolutely no campus residency or on-site requirements. Our totally online distance-learning approach allows learning to take place anytime, at any place. All course work is done completely through the Internet, from the comfort and convenience of home or office. Communication with faculty, staff, advisors and other Learners is via email, phone, computer video, and online forums. No travel is required in order to complete coursework.
Our flexible enrollment policy enables Learners to start courses the first day of the month following their acceptance, and complete them anytime within the 16-week term. Learners may begin their next course upon completion of the previous course in order to move quickly through their degree program.
NCU’s faculty mentors make sure that Learners are never alone throughout their educational journey. They provide guidance and feedback, and encourage Learners to seek the knowledge necessary for success, rather than just going through the motions. Mentors evaluate coursework against professional and real-world standards, and promote application and understanding of course material.
NCU offers the highest quality program content and service to our Learners, yet understands that, for Learners who want to get ahead in their careers, higher education must be affordable. NCU’s tuition is comparatively lower than other distance-learning universities, and Title IV financial aid is available to those who qualify. Convenient payment plans are also available.
