Through NAU-Extended Campuses, you can choose from a variety of accredited, entirely online degree programs and pursue your bachelor’s or master’s degree without interrupting work or your personal life. NAU also offers degree programs in a blended format, which means you complete some courses online and some in person at one of the more than 30 campuses across Arizona.
As an online student, you take courses through the Blackboard Learn (BbLearn) platform. There, you can connect with professor and peers, participate in discussions and view lecture presentations, much like an in-person class, but from the location and during the time most suitable for you.Most online classes are asynchronous, meaning you log in and “attend class” when most convenient. However, some classes are synchronous, with set times when you are required to log in and participate. Look for asynchronous or synchronous when registering for online classes.NOTE: This does not apply to Personalized Learning, which uses a different platform.
