Our vision is that every student entering the Flagstaff campus at NAU will develop self-understanding to make informed decisions about a major and succeed in carrying out a plan for an education that serves as excellent preparation for life and professional accomplishment. 

University College acts as a portal for students to make an efficient, informed decision about pursuing a path for the future.  Undergraduate students automatically become a part of University College when admitted to Northern Arizona University.  The College promotes an enhanced undergraduate learning experience for students, faculty, and staff, creates a challenging and supportive environment for successful transition to the university, and a solid foundation for continued academic success and progress toward graduation.
