NAU and the Arizona University System

NAU is a high-research university that provides skills to tomorrow's workforce through its residential campus and distance learning sites throughout the state.

Through the Pledge program, online learning, partnerships and varied tuition rates at Extended Campus sites around the state, NAU is creating opportunities for students to reach educational and career goals that contribute to the state's economic growth.
