Steps to apply
Follow the steps below to apply as an international sponsored student.
Complete the online application below. Please note that the application fee can be waived for sponsored students by using promotional code INSPAG for undergraduate and #INSPAG for graduate applications.
Note: If you are not a sponsored student and use the promotional code, you will be billed for the application fee.
Upload to your application a copy of your official transcripts for all secondary (high school) and post-secondary (college or university) education*, as well as any vocational or ESL grade reports. You can also later email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. All transcripts or mark sheets must be submitted in English. In addition, we require a minimum 2.5 grade-point average (GPA) for first-year and transfer students.
*Transfer students who have earned 24 or more credits at an American post-secondary institution only need to submit that transcript as part of their application. A high school transcript is not required.
NAU accepts transcript evaluations from members of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) as part of the evaluation process. However, the result of a transcript evaluation does not guarantee that transfer credits will be awarded.
