Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2017

I'm pursing a Master's in Educational Technology at NAU online. I've been with NAU since 2012 and ever since the beginning it's staff and counselors have been very helpful. Tuition is half the cost of most state Universities in my state which played an important role in my decision to pursue a higher education. I love working on my degree online because I can do it at my own pace and time.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

NAU's PT school is top notch. The school's faculty are some of the most well-respected clinicians in the industry. Many are still actively practicing, so every class relates directly to real-world, relevant clinical situations. The faculty does it's best to support you both in the classroom and with your professional development. After the program, I have no doubt that I will be among the best trained and most qualified PT's in the nation. As an added bonus, NAU's tuition is among the most affordable nationwide. They also allow out-of-state students to become state residents for tuition purposes after the first year. Living in Flagstaff is like a dream come true, especially if you're into anything outdoors. I really could not imagine a better DPT program.

Degree: Fitness Trainer
Graduation Year: 2014

This school is in a beautiful and fun town. I had fun the whole time I went to school there. I also got a great education and learned a lot. They could improve on career help and advice for post-graduation and their communication systems.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2018

I will start on January, so I can't say much about my graduate program. Although I expect to have excellent academic education.

Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2015

Although I am a new student at Northern Arizona University, it seems as if the advisors are there to help and truly want you to succeed. The only negative I can find is the on-campus living and the lack of discipline for the late night noise violations.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

I attend the extended campus of NAU. One of the things that really helped me decide on which school to attend is the fact that NAU's M.Ed. Educational Leadership - Principal k-12 program is one of the few programs offered locally that is more nationally recognized. If in the future we decide, as a family, to move to a different location outside of Arizona then my degree is still valid. My advisor and financial aid contacts have been extremely helpful and has made the transition to being a student again nearly seamless. I was enrolled in an online course but withdrew within the first few days because the workload was unrealistic. I was able to enroll in the exact same course, but this time in-person, and I am getting so much more out of it. Unfortunately, I am finding there are very few courses offered in an in-person format which are near by where I live.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: The graduate program that I'm taking is close with my professional background. All the classes are worth it for my career path in the future a head. It needs some channels to help get job by a more real support. Cons: Only by a more real support, it needs some channels to help get job.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I really love the community sense that is offered to students,whether in undergraduate or graduate level. The only thing I really don't care for, is the minimal funding available for graduate students.
