Why are there fees if you are tuition-free?

We are tuition-free, but not free. As the world’s first non-profit, tuition-free university, we ask for minimal processing fees to help keep our university sustainable. To learn about our processing fees, please click here https://www.uopeople.edu/tuition-free/processing-fees/  – kindly note we offer grants and scholarships to those who cannot afford these fees. To apply for financial aid, you need to first apply to be a student – simply complete and submit the online application form and then you will be assigned to a personal Admissions Advisor who will guide you through the application and financial aid process.http://www.uopeople.edu/application/
