Welcome to the Lumberjack family!

Academic Transition Programs aims to help first-year students successfully transition into Northern Arizona University’s academic community. We provide students with the necessary tools to develop realistic academic and personal goals, locate helpful student resources on campus and create an overall successful and memorable college experience. Our purpose is to help you exceed your own expectations as a Lumberjack!

We will work together to achieve this goal by easing your transition from high school to college and by helping you make positive connections to faculty, staff, and your peers at NAU. NAU offers comprehensive first-year programming which is developed in a collaborative effort between the university and students and facilitated through coursework, activities, and services.

NAU 100: Transition to College
