As a private university, our costs are surprisingly affordable. For the academic year 2013-2014, local students only paid the sum of $3,950* per semester while international students only paid $5,450* per semester. Estimate $3,300 per semester for room and board plus $550 for books and supplies, and you have a total that keeps NAU competitive. It pays to shop around of course, but you won’t find a better value anywhere. Keep in mind that we work with every student to ensure that they can tap into a host of financial aid options.
North American University uses the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the awarding of institutional funds. (You can download the FAFSA from the Web at www.fafsa.ed.gov, or you can obtain a copy from your student’s high school). We’ll mail a notification letter soon after we make an offer of admission.
Your son or daughter may qualify for one or more of the following options:
Grants – Federal Pell Grant; Federal Supplemental Educational opportunity Grant
Loans – Federal Perkins Loan; Federal Stafford Student Loan
Scholarships – a wide variety of merit based scholarships, some offered by the university itself, others by individual departments.
Many scholarships are also awarded via the Southeastern Foundation’s generous private funding; these are also described in the Guide to Scholarships. Applications are available online.
