Graduation Year: 2013

This school is a JOKE at least the Denver campus. I would never ever recommend this school to anyone. I am in the medical assistant progam, which is supposed to be like a 2 yr program. I just started my 4th year because the school is understaffed.

They don't have enough enrollment so therefore classes are not being offered. I have already taken 3 months off and I probably need to take another 3 months off. If you are looking to get into the medical field do not come here!!! I used to love this school before I knew how awful it is.

I am a student of National American University, and I love it. They are very helpful if you need help with anything. To the people that is saying bad things about National American University I hate to say this but no college is easy, you have to work for what you want , don't put the school down just because you didn.t do well. The Success for Strategies class, is a very import class, it helps the student to believe in him or herself and to make goals, without goals you cannot make it in any college.

The CIS class is also a very good class; I learned a lot about computers and how to fix them. If you do not do, the work in the learning plans then that is on you, not the school .NAU has very good stuff. Not to put no one down but if you look at some of the people handwriting you will see spelling errs may be this is why they did not make it at NAU. At any college that is offering a good EDU, it is not going to be easy. Before talking bad about any college look at you first and make sure to spell words correctly. I would recommend NAU, to any one 100%.

Attending here was the worst idea I ever had. It is a really easy way to buy a lower class degree. I attended NAU for a year and a half,and maintaned about a B average. I realized what my real earning potential was after graduation and withdrew from all my classes. Now attending a real school, Normandale Community College.

I have never been so upset with myself. These type of schools really are a rip off. Almost every college offers day, night,and weekend classes. Attending a university is cheaper than NAU, and community college is almost half as much as that. The required class materials actually cost less when attending a real school.

College is hard enough for most individuals, but being ripped off is never good. These schools make it sound good to get a so-called degree from them. It is not though. The actual real schools have more resources and benefits. This is due to the fact that they are real schools. For profit schools like National American University, Minnesota School of Business, and any other for profit school are a hoorible career path.

If you are a skeptic try a couple classes at each kind of school and decide for yourself.

I think this school is decent. It may not be the best and I did have some trouble having them call be back due to the short staff but I would recommend it to anyone. The staff is extremely helpful and willing to work with anyone. Even right now while I am stationed in Afganistan, they go the extra mile to make sure I get what I need.

Graduation Year: 2012

I believe NAU to be an awesome learning environment. from the students to the faculty, my experience has been nothing but good. The campus works hard to make sure that students have the resources they need in order to pass classes and graduate.

The Student Government Association on campus also does events, like blood drives and family skate nights which are fun things to go to with fellow students..

This is a horrible school I attended Bloomington mm online and on campus bad mistake the teachers are terrible and they just want your money don't believe the good reviews they are all lies and written by the staff that gets bonuses for strong arming poor students into attending classmates who earned their degree cannot find a job and they graduated with 4.0 GPA.

This school is a scam and will ruin your life take it from me as I was one of these students with the 4.0 funny half the time I knew more about the subject matter than the teachers now I'm in debt and they could care less go to a community college you might actually find a job and don't listen to these silver tongue snakeoil salesmen.

I have taken both on ground and online classes with NAU. I honestly feel like you get out of the classes whatever efforts you put into them. They do offer tutoring,and other resources but sometimes they are not the best at directing you toward them. I do feel like most of the professors care about their students.

The college is marketed, in my opinion, toward the more underpriveliged people out there looking for hope. This explains the group of people surrounding me in the classroom. I felt at times like it was a "special" school because of some of my fellow classmates. However, it may just be the area my campus is located in (the Independence, MO campus).

The online classes, you have to put in the effort of studying and doing the work. If you do, and you participate, I feel like the classes are comparable with what other schools are offering. I do feel like this school is over priced, as are all colleges.

This school is a ripe off. Some of the instructors are knowledge about what they teach, others are just there. The Financial Assistances staff is RUDE and not helpful at all. When you inquiry about your financial aid or have a question, either no one is available, or they act as though your are bothering them.

The quality of education is not worth what they charge. You can not transfer credits from another school nor can your credits from NAU be transferred. I would suggest you do your research and choose another College for your education.

I have had a better college experience with NAU than any private, community college, etc. My experience has been very fulfilling and very gratifying. I am starting my online business and this school has led the way and set the path for me in so many ways. The professors/instructors are so thorough and the assignments have helped me more than any expensive private colleges.

My overall experience has been dealing with all different cultures and this in itself has been more precious. I am maintaining an overall grade point average over well over 3.8 and aiming for above 4.0. I am 58 years old, a published author with a book that is about to become a movie, have 6-10 children's books that are being printed as we speak and I owe this to my NAU experience.

Anyway, the work is a long ways from easy, but has made me much more responsible and conscience of keeping good grades. I recommend this school to anyone that is serious about an education that will help with any area especially starting or becoming an entreprenaur and starting your own business. THIS IS WHAT IS UP AND SHOULD TRY NAU TODAY!!!!
