Extended Campuses students

NAU is an affordable option for students throughout Arizona.  Students pursuing degrees at one of our locations throughout Arizona, online, at NAU Yuma, or at NAU-Yavapai pay slightly varied tuition ratesSpecial tuition rates are available for active duty military and veteran students. In addition, with many programs accepting up to 90 units of transfer work from Arizona community colleges, students have the opportunity to receive a four-year degree at nearly half the cost. 

Personalized Learning students

Personalized Learning takes the confusion out of paying for college. For a set cost, you get unlimited access to online lessons for six months. There are no program or lab fees, and all course materials are included. Think of it as an unlimited subscription rather than as tuition.

Personalized Learning has no semesters, so you can start your studies when you’re ready and complete as much work toward your degree as you can. Simply renew your subscription every six months until you finish your degree.
