Degree Completion Options
With year-round classes and multiple start dates, you have the ability to move through your degree program faster than you can at a traditional school. Plus, we provide free transcript evaluations! If you have completed specialized, professional, vocational or military training, you could turn it into college credit, saving you time and money.

Inverted Curriculum
This unique format lets you get started on your major in your first year so you don’t have to wait the typical two years to get immersed into your core courses. You can find out right away if you have chosen the degree program that suits you the best.

Academic Services
In addition to free tutoring for select courses, NAU also offers a Strategies for Success class, Academic Success Appraisals and online library services. Upon enrollment, you will be assigned a personal advisor who will be with you every step of the way, until you wear the cap and gown.

Experienced Faculty
We employ highly qualified instructors who have actively worked in the fields in which they teach, offering you their real-world experience and perspective.
