    I feel that for the price of tuition I have had a lot of opportunities at NAU. They have amazing resources and staff willing to help you.

    Northern Arizona University has a fixed tuition, meaning that the tuition they quote you for your first year will not go up. Even though tuition rises every year, you will not have to pay the increase each year. This is a definite money saver each semester.

    NAU costs have been getting extremely worse. Tutition has sky-rocked (15%-%25 yearly), monthly dorm rent doubled in 3 years, hidden school fees (technology, computer, fitness center, upper classmen fee, etc.) are $750-$1000. Students need scholarships for NAU, but NAU barely offers any.

    If you live in the western states like California there is a reduced tuition for the out-of-state cost. Most of the activities are free and transportation is free however you might want your car sophomore year.
