Resources for guiding your student

Northern Arizona University is dedicated to working side-by-side with committed counselors guiding their students through the college application and admission process. This page serves as a central information hub for counselors with students considering or applying to NAU.

If you have further questions (or even if you don’t!) we’d love to connect with you. Give us a call at 928-523-5511 or email to start or continue to build on a valuable working relationship with your NAU Student Recruitment Coordinator.

NAU application process

Freshman students – Freshman applicants will complete an online self-report application. We highly recommend students have an unofficial copy of their high school transcript available when applying. Receipt of official final high school transcripts will be required for verification once graduation is posted. Transcripts are not required prior to graduation unless specifically requested. First-year applicants are encouraged to understand our detailed admission requirements as they plan their high school coursework.

Transfer students – Students are considered transfer students if they have completed high school or have their GED and have earned more than 12 college credits since graduation.

International – All International students will complete the admission process with the assistance of the Center for International Education.

Flagstaff is consistently ranked among the nation’s best and most beautiful college towns. But don’t just take our word for it—bring your students and join us for a campus visit.

We have a variety of visit options for students to choose from, including daily campus visits as well as Discover NAU days, which are more extensive, day-long visit programs on select days throughout the year.

Counselors interested in bringing a group of 10 or more students are encouraged to register for one of our group tours.
