Tuition and fees

Intercultural Open University Foundation attempts to assist learners as much as possible to meet the Foundations modest tuition fees by adapting the fees to the individual needs of the learners.   Tuition fee payments can be made in three installments.  The Board of Governors, President, and staff are all dedicated to making affordable education possible for learners regardless of their financial situation. Our scholarship programs are centered around and directed toward learners that are active and involved in social change programs.
