  • An Affordable College Education

    As one of Arizona's premier public institutions, Northern Arizona University already has one of the most competitive, affordable tuition rates in the nation. Extended Campuses students enjoy an even lower per-credit-hour tuition rate in addition to fewer fees.

    NAU is continually seeking new ways to make college more accessible and affordable, from designing accelerated degree programs at Yavapai to building the competency-based Personalized Learning program.

    Numerous financial aid options, scholarships, tuition discounts and payment plans can help reduce the cost of college. NAU also offers reduced tuition to active duty military and veterans.
      

    Tuition & Fees

    Below are current tuition and fees for various learning options offered through NAU-Extended Campuses. Traditional and online students pay the same low tuition rate. 

    Note: The tuition examples on this page are provided as an illustration of the affordable nature of our programs.  Please view the current NAU tuition rates on the Student and Departmental Account Services web site.
