Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2017
"I will be graduating with an A.A.S. Management degree from National American University with the conclusion of this current semester. Personally, I have found the staff to be very helpful, especially the Director of Student Success, who seems to be always on hand and responds quickly when I send her a message. The classes are easy to navigate and the curriculum/schedule are well defined and posted. Most importantly, I feel like I have really been learning and I feel prepared to use what I have learned in the real world!"

"Great school, they want you to succeed and give you the help to do it. Tutoring was available for you and being that it is mainly a night school the tutors are there during that time also. I recommend this school to anyone out there looking to progress there career or trying to start a new one"

"This is a great school with small classes and great instructors. The staff greeted me with a smile everyday that I'm there. The instructors are very experienced and knowledgeable. I have no problems with financial aid, I receiving my books in a timely manner, the attendance policy is very very lenient, although, people timed-out after missing 14 hours out of 40.I would recommend anyone of my family and friends to enroll."

Dont go here - 10/25/2016
Degree: Small Business Management
Graduation Year: 2018
"I was mislead and taken advantage of by many staff member's at this university. Once, I was enrolled the staff was not useful and the concerns were poorly handled, as a student I was not treated like policy states and this university did a poor job conduction business. I was unable to get the information I needed from many staff and I was multiple things that didn't happen very unhappy and now out of money for a known fact that this school is too much and they are not worth it but this is my opinion and I was told good and bad things about this school and I wouldn't come back but everyone's experience is different."

ripe off - 6/27/2016
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015
"I didn't graduate, made me put one, Wow, NAU, This university is a complete JOKE, so I go and enroll, that was my first mistake. So I enroll into business, I had problems from the first day of Class, no one would explain a thing to me, I had problems know how to do the discussion. I did have a great advisor, she lost her job and I think it was because she was taking everyone else's students, she was that good, once my advisor left, I didn't get a how are you doing, do you need anything, from the day I started, I got no phone call back, no emails from my instructors, complete joke, I took 4 class's I had to drop out because I had absolutely no support and the business law I was in, I need my instructor to help t me, I got so frustrated that I dropped out, I was told right from the start that my financial aid was set up, no problems just keep going, and everything is fine, not so much. I got a bill for 11000.00 dollars, for 4 class that I had no support in what so ever. DO NOT GO TO NAU, they say they are credited to find out they are not, oh they will tell you they are, but they are not recognized by most universities, and you will find yourself having to take more classes and spend more money. biggest rip off out there. BEWARE THEY DON'T EVEN DESERVE ONE STAR"

"National American can definitely work communicating better with students and potential students. They have been helpful to the extent that I must call several time to talk to someone without leaving a voice mail. Some times the staff act or talk as if they are to busy or have no time for you.I had attended NAU right after high school, I took both online and in person courses. The in person course were much easier. The online were difficult initially but after some time and learning from failing, they got a lot easier. I would recommend NAU. I have had some problems with the financial aid but caused by my own actions. (failing courses caused me to lose my financial aid) In the sense of cost it is pricey and I would recommend that any one who is interested in going to NAU talk to an advisor and the registrar because NAU accepts transfer credits. Pre-requisites(math, science, humanities, etc.) can be taken at a local community college and transferred over which will ultimately reduce the amount of debt/ cost to attend NAU. (THEY WILL NOT TELL YOU THIS! BUT IT IS POSSIBLE)The most difficult thing while attending NAU is having the self discipline to teach yourself the online course. One other thing is that SOME of the online instructors don't provide feedback on assignments so you can confirm that you are learning or understanding the material appropriately. Other than these things not to bad!"

"Well, I am going to say that my experience at this school was pleasant one. Some of the students are a little challenging at times but for the most part, it was fine. They teach and you learn. The work is not easy though and very time consuming. You have to want to do the work and work hard in order to get a good grade and be successful. So if you are looking for an easy school, this isn't it. This school, you have to do the work and do it right or no you won't be successful. For me, the staff was great and my adviser was great and I like the school and I am glad that I attended it. This college has professors as well."

"My advisor really took time to get to know me. I didn't like the financial aid wasn't on campus, made it difficult at times when I had questions. All the staff on the campus really took care of me! My program so far has been a great experience, my professors were helpful."

nursing graduate - 2/9/2016
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015
"This was a hard program to get through. I definitely think the teachers care that you become a great nurse. The clinical instructors however all need to be replaced. A clinical instructor who falls asleep at clinicals should be fired,not given another chance. Teachers should not be hired just because they are friends with management. Financial aid will continuously mess things up over and over. They can't get anything right. If it wasn't for those few teachers that really cared about their students I wouldn't have become the great nurse that I am today."

"Enjoy my experience so far. I had some trouble at first with financial aide but they really helped me and I was able to get everything squared away. Can't wait to finish my degree with this university. You have to be mature if you enter college some of these peoples reviews are from children."
