Military Vets beware of this school, lots of issues communication from financial aid department is a BIG ISSUE, they take your money without anything in return. Financial Aid department for vets is a "JOKE", they want your money without anything in return. Credits will not transfer so its useless once you started.

I have been at NAU for over a year and attend online as well as on campus as a Business major. It is very important for people thinking about attending NAU to be informed of several things, all of which apply to all people considering NAU no matter their location. The Central office to the school is here, and affects all locations and courses. Here is what I wish I had known:
1) NAU is a for-profit school, and costs roughly twice what a State school costs.
2) Alleged benefits, like accelerated courses, come at the cost of higher learning. You pay twice as much for half as much in return.
3) Financial Aid is not properly staffed to accomodate the needs of existing students. There are always problems and you will be approaching Finals each quarter before you get any loans/grant money for the quarter. *I kid you not, at one point it took me 6 months to get my loans for 1 quarter.*
4) In addition to the above, there is also the issue of customer service. They will not provide service with a smile. They often fail to communicate and follow through, and consider their staffing problems as good cause to delay and behave as they please.
Research your options. Look at your State schools, think about the economy and how student loans will affect you in different situations. I really regret going to this school, when the cost is so much higher it really causes you to borrow a lot. I'm guessing I'll put of my Bachelor degree until I can get some of this debt paid down, if it was half as much I could continue. Please, don't go to this school.
