    2NAU Program Requirements  


    When you apply to the 2NAU program, you are admitted to NAU as a non-degree seeking student until you complete your general admission requirements and transition to NAU from your Arizona community college. This allows you to receive NAU advising and 2NAU resources while completing your associate degree at your community college.

    If you plan to immediately begin your bachelor's degree at NAU, apply to NAU through the General Transfer application
