Our focus on the complete student learning experience is a hallmark of an NAU degree. With a vast array of support services that help students succeed academically, personally, and professionally, NAU is deeply committed to its longstanding tradition of individual growth and development.
Successful Transition and Academic Readiness
STAR is a residential summer bridge program where students take two classes for college credit, build peer connections through social activities, develop stronger academic skills through increased support, and get to be a successful college student.
First-generation college students receive personalized guidance and support throughout their four-year NAU experience. Scholars receive personalized support, including an annual scholarship of $5,000, and develop an Individual Strategic Plan that evolves with them.
Student Support Services
The programs, guidance, specialized services, and support available through Student Support Services keeps students on track to graduate. The program includes campus activities, group gatherings and meetings with peer mentors and professional staff. Participating students may be eligible for a grant up to $500.
