Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

I am taking a completely online program and love the ability to work on this degree in such a flexible way.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2012

This is a great program. I took it as an online student, and the asynchronous class mixed with a very responsive crew of faculty and administration made this the perfect degree for me. It also offers a wide range of study topics, from technical writing, rhetoric, literature, education, to discourse theory.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

Flagstaff is an exceptional town and NAU is a fantastic university. It is quite expensive to live in Flagstaff because of the limited space.

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2013

This certificate has a very light workload with few required classes. You can choose your own program, basically. This is very convenient for students who wish to spend a lot of time practicing for personal improvement or for future auditions. The graduate offerings here are in the process of being improved, but this last year there was very little variety and options for academic classes. The entire fall semester was all intro and review class offerings. Even though the professors know their stuff and are fascinating people, the limited schedule was frustrating.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of the educational leadership - community college cohort program is that your classmates are all education employees. They are also you peers. So the program itself has a built in support system. This is important for student accountability and encouragement.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

I think NAU is a great program and amazing value. In a small town setting businesses are limited but they are very eager to work with students.
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

Gaduate takes lots of your time even if you are currently working between 2 jobs. It takes deligence and hardwork to finish one task before going to another. Faith should always abound for you not to lose hope. Finishing before the deadline is not easy, but hardwork plays an integral part or role.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

NAU's Counseling major students have an easier time of passing the National Counselor's Exam for licensure at the end of their program because the coursework so closely prepares them for what will be on the test. The faculty are generally very friendly, kind, and helpful. Parking is expensive, like it is at most universities, and housing is not that cheap, either.
