Invest in your future

Paying for an education is a significant investment. We are committed to making Kibo affordable and accessible, and offer scholarships and financial aid.

Tuition and Fees

Tuition is a flat fee of US$500 per quarterly term. Each term lasts about 3 months. The tuition costs to earn your certificate is:

  • Diploma: US$2000 (1 year, 4 terms)
  • Bachelor’s degree: US$6000 (3 years, 12 terms)

In addition to tuition, you should prepare for the cost of equipment. This includes a laptop in Year 1 if needed (estimated US$600) as well as internet data to support your learning.

Scholarships and Aid

We are committed to accessibility, and provide scholarships and financial aid to help you afford your education.

Every applicant will have the option to submit an application to be considered for scholarships.  We cannot guarantee that we will meet 100% of financial need and you should expect to make a meaningful financial investment in your studies. In addition to Kibo scholarships, we encourage you to apply to external scholarships and sources of funding to support your education.
