When is payment due?

Tuition fees at National University can be paid on a monthly basis. Before you start your studies (before the student orientation) you must prepay the fees for your first class. All remaining months can be paid at the beginning of each course while you are in San Diego. As an alternative students may also pay the full tuition cost in advance.

Payment options

Tuition must be paid exclusively via Flywire. Here you can track your payment to the recipient. All students will receive their exact payment information again in a separate email from National University about 30 days before the beginning of their courses.
