NAU overview


A tradition of excellence

Founded in 1899, Northern Arizona University is a public university centered on students. Our academic programs, research, public service, and creative endeavors enrich lives and create opportunities in Arizona and beyond. We develop solutions to challenges and drive innovation in a supportive, inclusive, and diverse environment.

NAU is built on a student-first foundation—this was true when we opened our doors more than 100 years ago, and it’s true now. Our traditions and values of the past inform our present and help us shape the future.

Everywhere You Want to Learn

Earn your degree on your terms. Whether you want to enjoy one of the best residential experiences in the nation, study at one of our NAU statewide campuses throughout Arizona or earn credits from the comfort of your home, our flexible campus and online options allow you to learn how you want, where you want.

The Value of NAU

We don’t want anything to come between you and your degree – including the cost of attending. 96% of our first-year students receive some form of scholarship or financial assistance. Our pledge is that you will pay the same tuition rate all four years you attend NAU. Keeping costs predictable will help you plan for your future.

Meet the Future on Your Terms

We focus on putting you first. Our expert faculty are dedicated to helping you realize your potential, and a supportive campus community creates the perfect environment to jump in without getting in over your head. Whether you are a student in Flagstaff, at any of our statewide campuses, or online, we will ensure you have everything you need to shape your future.

The Difference in our DNA

Since our founding in 1899, “personal” and “independent” have defined the character of the NAU experience. For those interested in a collaborative community with a breadth of stellar programs and a dedicated research agenda, NAU offers the ideal environment for academic success, personal growth, professional outcomes, and rewarding adventures.
