"The financial aid process is horrible. They do not know what they are doing. They keep students waiting forever to get the reward. After accepting the reward, they keep students waiting forever again for disbursement. On top of waiting, they keep sending the invoice to students demanded payment or will being dropped. When students call for the update, they run students around with all untruth information. School needs to have better financial aid teams who can be able to work efficiently and accurately. The more than three months process of financial aid is outrageous and unacceptable."

"National University is a very rigorous school. It is NOT for everyone. They have excellent instructors most of who actually work in the field they teach. Classes are very fast paced. If you choose to do online, be ready to teach yourself. Online school is very challenging. If you are not disciplined, do not choose online schooling. I did both and found on campus to be far easier to manage. I would highly recommend this school to anybody who is disciplined. Nobody will hold your hand. Classes are four weeks long. When it come to the Accounting field, about 85% of my instructors were CPA's. Needless to say, my learning was supplemented by a lot of instructor experience. Moving on from education, I did experience a lot of issues with billing. I received many billing statements that were erroneous, for which i had to take corrective action via my advisor or students accounts. My Gi Bill was wrongfully charged in a few occasions. In all fairness I have to say, this took place when I was repeatedly dropping classes. They charged me for these classes when they should have not. Consequently, they had to pay the VA back. This was a couple of years back. However, I still experienced some difficulties recently. For example, I switched a couple of classes around toward the end of my program and the school failed to decertify me from the VA. The VA paid the school for these classes, but National promptly returned the payments. My recommendation is this area is to take matters into your own hands. Get acquainted with the student accounts office, and monitor your balances. Besides these hiccups, my pell has always been delivered on time with no issues. To sum it up, great school with VERY experienced instructors. Be ready to work really hard, as the school is very hard. Monitor your account to make sure you catch any discrepancies. Note: National University has a 50% student pass rate for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) test."

"Very disappointed with my choice. I've had 9 classes and 1 great instructor. The classes require 1-3 hour chats in the evenings 1-2 days a week.This was difficult for my schedule and may be for yours. Your advisor support was awful bounced between 2 advisors in 6 months, Financial Aid department is a wreck."
