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!!!!

I'm a student right now at NAU. I do the online school. When you first start they make you take 2 crappy class Strategies for Success (they teach you to think positive) and Intro CIS (the very basics for computers). Both class are garbage and you pay around 3000 dollars for them but I really liked the online experience. You get all your school work up front which really cool they go through the each section at a time.

Now here comes the bad part I get started to some real classes. I took the accounting class that uses a book that the college made. I had a really hard time understanding it. So I asked the instructor very little to no help. I tried to see about a tutor through the school there is none for Tulsa area. I have gone through 2 terms and I owe 10000 dollar you think that is to much go to another school.

Also the credits are not transferable you don't believe me go to "useful information" area on their website. All I want it a good education without being ripped off is that to much to ask?

I have a great experience at NAU. Their online courses are excellent and they are within the expectations. The professors are very nice, they give the grade if you deserve it. I think if you do your work, study, and put your maximum effort; then you should be fine. My recommendation is just do your work, be on time, listen to the professors, and be nice to everyone, and they will all be nice and helpful to you.

I was sitting around one day saying that I needed to go back to school. I couldn't go to a campus because I really didn't have the transportation. I saw the commercial for NAU and I was like I think I am going to check them out. I researched them online and like all colleges your gonna get your good or bad reviews. I didn't see much reviews on people having problem finding a job after wards. In fact I only found one review and that is because she didn't have a GED. I am currently getting ready to start my third semester.

I love this school. I can email the financial aid office or even my guidance counselor and they always respond that day. They are very helpful when it comes to the questions that I ask. I have never had any problem with my financial aid either. I have gotten a check each semester. My Financial Aid counselor was on it when it was time to redo my financial aid. I never once emailed her about it, she always emailed me first.

There are gonna be some people that are not happy with the school because something didn't go there way. Let me just tell you this when they send you stuff to fill out. Fill it out right then and there and send it in and you won't have a problem with it. Now compared to some of the colleges in my area this was the cheapest and the easiest for me to attend. Good luck in choosing a school.

I like NAU - I started this spring and think the admissions was very friendly and helpful. I don't particually like the attitudes from the job placement staff and financial aid; they're attitudes make me feel like I'm not worthy of being there; they have very poor customer service!

But my classes are small and the other students seem to be just like me, just trying to get a degree and better my life. So far it's been a good experience.

This school is seriously out to get your money only. They over charge first off and they never want to fix your account no matter how many people you contact. I have the post 9/11 gi bill and I also have a pell grant and the over charged the gi bill by a thousand and it has been 4 months since I got my pell grant which all of it I should recieve and I still haven't gotten any of it from them. My classes have been over for 3 months and still nothing. The financial dept. is the worst I have ever seen one.

They never call you back the only way to talk to someone is if you just show up. On a good note the teachers were really nice and fair but the negatives out weigh the positives.
