Dual Credit Opportunities

Earn master's credits while you finish your bachelor's degree! 

National American University offers three dual credit courses in select undergraduate programs that can be transferred to the Master's of Business Administration (MBA) General and Master of Management (MM) General degrees at NAU's Harold D. Buckingham Graduate School. 

How it works

Eligible undergraduate students have the opportunity to complete up to three dual credit courses, which will count toward their master's degree at NAU. 

  • Students pay the undergraduate tuition rate for a dual credit course.
  • No additional fee or dual credit application needed to enroll.
  • Register for a  dual credit course the same way that you would for any bachelor's course.
  • Students will join their peers - only NAU undergraduate students are in the dual credit courses, taught by master's faculty using master's curriculum.

Dual credit courses apply for the following bachelor's programs: 

  • Business Administration
  • Criminal Justice
  • Paralegal Studies 
  • Healthcare Management
  • Emergency Medical Services Management
  • Information Technology
  • Management
  • Organizational Leadership 

Any dual credit course will substitute for an open elective. Please keep in mind that students should use their transfer credit for an open elective before taking dual credit courses. 

Student Acceptance Criteria

Students must meet the following criteria at the time of enrollment in their dual credit course:

  • Minimum of 120 quarter credits 
  • Minimum CGPA of 2.75 or higher 

Undergraduate campuses are responsible for ensuring that students meet the eligibility requirements.
