I believe this is a great school. I have had no problem with them. The tricky part is the hidden costs. I do feel like the cover up information until the last minute. However the costs compared to other schools is still low and the instructional format is phenomenal. I recommend this institution to anyone but do your homework first and see if its a good fit. They are not a rip off but they do need improvements in counseling and administration. Their degrees are regarded highly. I beat out many other people from the UC system for the job I have now.

Great School!

I ended up at NU after finding out I was .5 of a unit short in transferring to SDSU after already getting an acceptance letter. POINT FIVE! I was crushed when my acceptance was withdrawn. I was still able to take a course at SDSU for a semester while being enrolled in units at my community college so I did get to sample SDSU as a school. After completing my .5 of a unit, I had a change of heart and decided that with the crowding situation at state I may be there for another 3 years instead of my preferred 2 years. I decided to look into NU but had doubts because of rumors that it was a diploma mill. I was lucky to have an acquaintance as an advisor and I was blunt about my concerns about diploma mills. He educated me that NU is a non-profit and private university that is accredited by WASC which is the same accreditor for SDSU. All classes could transfer from NU to SDSU without any issues if I should change my mind again. I chose to complete my education at NU with a BA in Management and concentration in HRM. I could not be happier with my experience. I was working full-time so I took a handful of my courses online and have never worked so hard in previous schools as I have at NU. Keep in mind I am an A and B student and always have been, anything below is unacceptable in my book. I've had courses where I had 4 papers, 4 quizzes, 4 discussions, 4 live chats, a midterm, final and a whole lot of reading all in 4 weeks! It was much tougher than the course at SDSU I experienced. However, this is not the school for you if you are straight out of high school and looking for campus life and community. This is for people who are looking to put aside the BS and get straight to the point. I just graduated recently and am thrilled! Commencement was an amazing experience and everyone was very proud of their accomplishments after working so hard. I noticed some concerns about NU's financial and academic advisors. However, I hope my story shows that this is not unique to NU. As a student and an adult, it is up to you to make sure your requirements are met. I looked over my own units and went to TWO advisors on multiple occasions at my community college and the .5 of a unit was overlooked by everyone. I would have to wait another year just to attend SDSU and would probably have to spend 3 years there due to budget cuts. I am so happy that there are other options out there. As a student, remember you must check, re-check, and check again! If something still gets messed up in the process, the good news is you have options! I am now looking into getting my MA in HRM and National University is at the top of the list of schools I am considering. I hope this review finds everyone well! As the President stated at commencement: NU may make it a little easier to get in, but you are going to have to work your way out!

High quality online education

Teachers really challenge students to achieve. Grades are not handed out freely. All courses I've taken have been intensive on scholarly research. I find it more challenging and more enriching than my B&M coourses at Nevada-Reno.
