We've dealt with Nations, who provided free education overseas. As for U. of the People - much the same thing. As you say, they began unaccredited in 2009. During those early years they provided free education - no tuition, no fees. In 2012 they received a grant of close to $700K from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to pursue accreditation - and were accredited in 2014. If Nexford wants to teach for free until they get some Micro$oft money for accreditation - fine with me. Haven't seen such an offer, so far.
