NAU TUITION ADVANTAGE DETAILS

NAU Tuition Advantage

The NAU Tuition Advantage allows certain undergraduate students to reduce their tuition cost. An eligible student who completes 13.5 credit hours (generally 3 classes) will receive a lower tuition rate per credit hour for that academic quarter.

Eligible Students

An eligible student who completes all courses in an undergraduate degree program at NAU, completing at least 18 credits (generally 4 classes) each quarter, can save approximately 35% of the total tuition cost compared to a student who completes only 9 credits (generally two classes) per quarter. Students with transfer credit and nursing students may also save, with actual savings depending upon the circumstances of each student.

Military Students

Students who receive the NAU military tuition rate or another NAU special rate do not participate in the NAU Tuition Advantage because they receive a reduced rate under those tuition plans.

How do tuition and program length calculations work?

20 quarters x $1900 = $38,000
20 quarters x 3 months per quarter = 60 months
