Hi fellas!! I was looking for free tuition colleges and scholarships in US and i found this college: University of People!
University of people is a free tuition college, you have to pay an aplication fee ($10 to $50 depends of the country where you are) and the exams (around $100) if you have not money to pay these you can apply for a scholarship! the material is free!
HOW IT WORKS
The student community will be divided into sub-groups (classes) of 20-30 students, participating in online courses. Students will be expected to actively participate in forums by posting questions, responding to questions posted by other students, fulfilling written assignment requirements and taking all assessments.
The University Learning Week starts at midnight between Wednesday and Thursday (more precisely, on Thursday at 00:05) and ends on the following Wednesday (at 23:55). The weekly study units will be made available one week at a time at the start of the new learning week. The students will always have access to the completed units.
Please note: All reference to time in the study process and schedule is according to University of the People Time – (the time of our server located in the US, Central Time, time zone)
There is two programs! Business administration where you can chose Associate of Science Degree- business administration (2 years) or Bachelor of Science Degree – Business Administration (4 years)
The other program is Computer science where you can chose Associate of Science Degree – Computer Science (2 years) or Bachelor of Science Degree – Computer Science (4 years)

At present, University of the People is not an accredited institution. The University is in the process of applying for accreditation from an agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. At this time, no assurances can be given as to when, or if, accreditation might be granted.
So...... if you have any question just ask, i'm happy to help.
