Zero. That’s the amount of interest students should pay. That’s why we’ve partnered with EdAid to offer a tuition deferment plan in collaboration with some of our university partners, paving the way to make education more accessible.

Our partnership.

As student loan debt in the U.S. reaches over $1.5 trillion, the need for alternative ways to fund career-enhancing education increases. With EdAid, and in collaboration with select university partners, we’re taking an important step forward to increase access to high-quality education with a more affordable way for students to pay: tuition deferment.

What we’re doing together.

Why tuition deferment? How does this partnership help students? Lower upfront costs for high-quality affordable education.

  • Students in select 2U-powered degree programs are eligible to defer up to 50% of their total tuition until after graduation.
  • Graduates of select 2U-powered degree programs only repay when they reach a minimum income threshold. Repayments are equivalent to 10% of their yearly gross income after graduation for up to 10 years or until the amount deferred is paid.
  • Students in select 2U-powered degree programs only pay what they defer with zero interest charges or hidden fees.
