We know that paying for an education is a significant investment. We are committed to making Kibo affordable and accessible, and offer need-based 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 estimated tuition costs to earn your degree are
- 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 (estimated US$1200 for laptop in Year 1) as well as internet data to support your learning.
Scholarships & Financial Aid
We are committed to accessibility, and provide need-based financial aid to help you afford your education. Every applicant will have the option to submit a financial aid application to be considered for scholarships. If you believe you may need help affording your Kibo education, we encourage you to apply for financial aid.
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.
We provide flexible payment terms and enable you to pay your tuition annually, per term, or monthly.
Pay up front
Make a single payment to cover the cost of the term or the year
Split the cost of a term into three monthly payments
Earn while you learn
All students must complete an internship or industry experience to earn their diploma or degree. We have partnered with organizations to provide internships and job opportunities to qualified learners starting in Term 4. Our internship partners include
Our career services team is committed to helping every student find meaningful work opportunities, but internships and jobs are not guaranteed.
