Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2015

Northern Arizona University is a bargain for the wonderful and rich education you will receive if you choose to attend this University. The class sizes are small (though they were growing towards the end of my time at NAU due to an initiative at the state level) and the professors are knowledgeable, approachable, and helpful. The campus community is strong and inclusive, and the surrounding town of Flagstaff is beautiful, friendly, and something from a time bygone. The academics are rigorous, but you will receive the help and support you need, especially if you take the opportunity to seek it out. Living on campus was an experience that I will never forget, and my time in the dorms are some of the happiest and most memorable to date. I would highly recommend this University if you want an affordable, intimate, challenging education, and a fun and memorable college experience! Go Lumberjacks!

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

The psychology program is one of the most personal programs I have ever encountered. The teachers genuinely care about their students and desire to see them grow. They have many opportunities such as internships and research opportunities that will prepare each person for the future. The psychology program is geared toward helping each person know where their places are in the field. I personally had the opportunity to take part in these research and internship opportunities and realized the depth and breadth that a career in psychology has. It truly inspired me to make a difference in the world and to understand the value of every human. This program was one of the best choices I have ever made.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2016

There are a lot of wonderful things about Northern Arizona University and the Criminal Justice program. One of the best things was the tight-knit community where you got to grow with those majoring in the same degree as you. However, one thing to take into account is the housing situation and how hard it can be for upper class-men to find a place to live.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2017

Want mentors who vanish? Lack of records? Online classes that cost thousands per class and yet barely cover any academic materials? You may get one sentence reply on an assignment. Maybe. Want scattered financial records? Charges for classes you didn't take? Well, go to NAU, the worst of the three colleges I have attended. I have two BAs and an MA from other unis. This school is uniquely horrific. I left and will not return. It is. It worth finishing.

Degree: Psychology, General
Graduation Year: 2021

This university is horrible. They treat you horrible, especially when you have financial issues. That is all I have to say about that. They don't allow you to sign up for classes or housing when you previously have holds on your account, even if you get the hold taken down.

Degree: Computer and Information Sciences, Other
Graduation Year: 2018

I think most of the other reviewers were correct, very unprofessional. When I started I was told my "mentor" would contact me regularly, but this particular subscription I haven't heard from her once. Also some of the professors seem like they don't even read any of my submissions. For instance, I handed in an essay and was given the score of 76, meaning I had to redo and resubmit. I ended up adding one more citation to the several already in the paper and handed it in again. I eventually heard back a month later with the score of 98. It's amazing how adding one quotation can raise my grade to an A. This isn't the first time I had to wait over a month to get my paper graded. Also getting feedback on your projects can be like pulling teeth. It seems like they delay you in anyway possible to siphon more money out of you. This will be my last subscription. I have wasted enough money on this school.

Degree: Social and Philosophical Foundations of Education
Graduation Year: 1999

I was honestly hoping for something worse but NAU disappointed me, everyone was friendly and extremely helpful. I didn't like how all my instructors were very encouraging and such, I wanted them to be mean and unhelpful. My colleagues were the worst, it was so easy to make friends, ugh it just disgusts me. If you're looking for a horrible school like I was, I would not recommend NAU.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

Northern Arizona University is nestled in the beautiful mountain town of Flagstaff. Not only do you get education from amazing, passionate teachers but you also get the scenic beauty and commandery of the Flagstaff community. You get the excitement, spirit, and experiences of a bigger college but the small class sizes and one on one experiences with teachers that are valued in education. There are many resources, programs, and organizations to fit any needs or wants you may have. Overall, NAU is more than a college; it will be your second home. Go Jacks!

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2013

This school and everybody associated with it is nothing but a complete and utter joke. At times, the entire school felt like it was a scam. Sure, the advisors would do just about ANYTHING in order to get you to sign up. But as soon as I was enrolled, forget about it. I no longer mattered. The law program at the school? Barely taught me anything. I have no idea how it's even considered a school at all, considering that all I did was basically read from the textbook. I literally could have done that on my own. And it's not even just one class, but literally all of them. The teachers were a joke, too; they didn't do ANYTHING. You might as well just swallow a law book for all of the good it does you. Once I was actually enrolled, people became less than helpful towards me. I wanted to complain about my awful first semester, so I went to the office of the councilor that I'd spoken with before enrolling. It was literally empty. I tried to call her, and let's just say that the things that she said to me, if I'd said those things in literally any circumstance, my mom would have washed my mouth out with soap! Everybody who had seemed beyond friendly towards me before I'd enrolled suddenly turned into horrible trolls who wanted nothing at all to do with me. If you value your sanity, and enjoy actually learning rather than wasting thousands upon thousands of dollars, I would recommend just about literally anywhere else.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

I attended NAU Personalized Learning program where I was able to complete my Bachelor of Science within 2 years. My experience in business assisted me in the platform that I was faced with while attending NAU online and I was able to complete coursework very quickly with ease. The instructors are very willing to offer feedback and guidance and the program overall is very well planned.
