"SAVE YOUR MONEY!!! I have been attending NAU for the past two years. As an international student I warn every international student, do not waste your money on this school, if I could get out now I would but I would be losing $16000 dollars and not getting the diploma I have already worked so hard for. The teachers do not explain the material correctly and when a student asks for help they are told to just Google it. This has been an issue since started. On top of everything the assignments are all geared to American Students and they don't give alternatives for the international students to complete. Student be warned!! DO NOT GO HERE, IT'S A BIG WASTE OF MONEY."

"Don't go to this school!!!! Check around about credit hour prices, trust me you'll be surprised. I made it all through the RN course accepted into the class made it halfway through there they told me that my loans had ran out and I did not qualify for anything else unless I paid cash I couldn't do that they found a reason to kick me out so all that you do is call financial adie and ask them about credit hour prices and do call about 5 of them and compare prices you'll see a big difference and then ask what the curriculum consist of the experience of the instructors please do this before you make your decision to go to any college."

"I attended NAU online at the Sioux Falls school and I attended NAU College of Military Studies. Both are a waste of money and time. They overcharge you for classes and books, but don't explain their return policies or anything else. When you drop out they either try to charge you for tuition or books that you shouldn't owe them for. They are no help whatsoever with your classes or anything else. Plus if you were discharged with other than honorable discharge from the military, you don't get a discount. I served my country too.!!"

"NAU is a fine college! I'm in my 4th quarter of my NBA. CLASSES are not easy; however, the students are given plenty of resources to be successful. I have never had a problem with financial aid or for that fact with any of NAU. It's a bit different from a state school but still meets the same HLC accreditation. The professors are extremely supportive and understanding. I feel very supported as a student. My only complaint is the high turnover with Grad advisors. I'm on at least my 3rd one... Classes are structured and books arrive in a timely manner. Overall no major complaints"

"National American University is absolutely an A++ educational institution! I have attended NAU since March 2015 and will graduate this December 2017 with my MBA degree. I am currently enrolling into the Master of Management Program E-Marketing Emphasis. From day one I have been treated with the greatest amount of respect and supported 100+ percent by Learner/Financial Advisors and Faculty!! This is the solemn truth!! I have NEVER once had a problem with school finances and anytime I have ever contacted Financial Services, someone returned my call within 24 hours. The courses are challenging, however, if you are wanting to learn they should be! I have been offered support by so many means such as my advisors, librarian, professors, tutors and even school directors. I am shocked with the negative comments left on this forum. I truly believe there are many underlying issues that do not involve NAU alone! Thank you deeply, National American University for allowing me the grandest educational opportunity to fulfill my career dreams!! Your true heart-felt support has meant more to me than you will ever know!! KUDO'S NATIONAL AMERICAN UNIVERSITY YOU HAVE EARNED IT!! "

"If you really want to learn, this is the school. Went for several job interviews after earning my MBA and help me to land one of the job I want to do. MBA professors are strict, knowledgeable and expert on their own area of concentration. Above all the professors help shape students to become responsible professionals."

"The greatest issue facing this institution is the fact that it is willing to take in students with no S.A.T. or A.C.T. scores. This creates a high turnover rate of unsuccessful students. Many students complain that they do not receive the help they need, but the help they need is too significant of an obstacle for them to graduate from any university. Overall this is an excellent university, with concise programs to help you get your degree as quickly as possible. This Univerity struggles to maintain an effective advisor to student ratio (as every college does). The only remaining issue worth noting is the constant technical difficulties, which occur as a result of significant online and online interactive platforms. Overall, I give N.A.U. 4 out of 5 stars."

Degree: Criminal Justice

"I have been going to this school since 2012 and since then this school has gotten worse over the years. They say their going to help, but never do, they over charge people for unprofessional education. The instructors must be underpaid because they don't get back to people in time. Worse school I have "ever attended" will not be finishing with them. Last they don't have classes for all courses only some so your force to take class online with what little information they give you."

"This place charged me 50,00 for a associates degree that I never received, I had 1 more class too take, national American University said that I was out of money. I never finished, and they never tried too help me get a job. Or finish college. I would not recommend this college too any one, all they want is people money, or too take all your money from you."
