You should get the credit you deserve

Get Credit for Prior Learning

Up to 50% of the required credits for an NAU program may be transferred from your college credits earned at another university or college; portfolio credit based on trade, business and professional experiences; evaluated corporate training certificates or military training; and testing (CLEP and DANTES). Credits that transfer save you time and money!

Military Tuition Rate

NAU offers a reduced tuition rate of $166.67 per credit hour (undergraduate) to active and retired military and their dependents – anyone who carries an unexpired military ID.

Start Small, Finish Big

Many of our programs have associate and bachelor’s degree options. If your goal is to enter the workforce or improve your current skills quickly, an associate degree might be the right place to start. As you seek new career opportunities, you can then transfer your earned credits into a bachelor’s degree. NAU also offers intensive degree options that allow you to complete a bachelor’s degree in 12 or 18 months. Many of our students also continue on to earn a Master of Business Administration, Master of Management, or Master of Science in Nursing at NAU.
