NSHSS handpicks its partners carefully, searching for colleges and universities that directly align with our mission to provide the best resources for our members and their families. We may receive compensation from our partners, at no cost to you.
Our partner just opened its doors this summer. Not many people know about their student benefits and programs. You are one of the first to get the inside scoop. They built a university from the ground up, taking everything that adds to great college education and career success, and removed everything that doesn’t. NewU is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit university licensed to operate by the Washington, DC Higher Education Licensure Commission. They offer affordable, high quality, stress-free Bachelor’s degree programs in person – not online – in our nation’s capital.
Campus is in the heart of Washington, DC. It features modern classrooms and study spaces with cozy lounges. NewU University is within a short walk to the White House, Smithsonian museums, parks, cafes, event venues, and so much more. Campus is open 24/7, and there is always free coffee for all students and guests. Take the virtual campus tour here.
Future-proof majors, real-world faculty, stress-free college. NewU University offers innovative courses and programs in psychology and human behavior, entrepreneurship, and creativity and innovation leadership. Programs are truly multidisciplinary, academically rigorous, and practically grounded. Faculty are industry practitioners who can help you find great internships and jobs. NewU redesigned and improved the administrative processes from application to course registration to faculty and career advising, and removed the stress from the college experience to improve student outcomes.
NewU made college affordable. Their Bachelor of Arts programs are designed to complete in just 3 years, so you graduate a full year faster than anywhere else and spend much less money on tuition and living expenses. You still earn a full Bachelor’s degree as you take 120 credit hours manageably scheduled in slightly longer semesters. Tuition is 70% lower than other private nonprofit colleges, and even more affordable than most public universities. NewU also has many full-tuition and partial scholarships to award. Quickly check how much financial aid you could receive and get a scholarship determination within a day.
As an NSHSS member, you are automatically pre-approved for admission or transfer to NewU University. High school GPA is the strongest predictor of academic success in college, so NewU does not consider test scores, essays, interviews, or recommendation letters. All you need to apply is a high school transcript copy and any photo ID. Applying is free, and you get your Letter of Admission within 24 hours. NewU will refund any deposit you may have paid to another school when you enroll at NewU this fall. They will also accept transfer credits from other licensed or accredited universities. NewU will match and exceed any FAFSA amount awarded for the 2021-2022 academic year through their own financial aid and scholarship awards.
Fall 2021 applications are still open. Seats are available, and many full-tuition and partial scholarships exist. Classes start August 23, 2021 in Washington, DC.
