Northern Arizona University serves students in Yuma and the surrounding area
Northern Arizona University-Yuma provides an affordable, quality college education to students looking to earn undergraduate and graduate degrees, with the same level of rigor and expectations that NAU provides for students throughout Arizona.
NAU’s commitment to Yuma goes back to 1988 with the establishment of our campus here in the Southwestern Arizona border region. Our students come primarily from Yuma, La Paz, and Imperial Counties and, because of our location, live and study in a bi-national and multicultural environment that affords them opportunities to develop language and cultural skills that enhance their academic experience and employability.
Our strong partnerships with educational institutions in Sonora and Baja, Mexico help our students broaden their worldview and their understanding of transnational challenges. In 2006, NAU-Yuma was designated a branch campus by the Arizona Board of Regents, allowing us to tailor programming to better serve the needs of students and communities in the lower Colorado region. The campus is designated a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) by the U.S. Department of Education. Learn more about our mission, values, and goals.
