NAU pioneered the self-paced Personalized Learning model in Arizona and was the first public university to offer a competency-based online degree path, which attracted national attention. You can trust our program to partner you with experts and connect you to a curriculum that will build the skills you need to succeed.
What is competency-based learning?
Our self-paced Personalized Learning format focuses on your needs—set your own deadlines and move through the coursework at your own pace.
Through our competency-based online college degree programs, you complete courses and earn credit by demonstrating mastery of a topic. Advance quickly or take your time to understand a difficult concept—the choice is up to you.
