    amazing professors, services, and activities that are just above many other colleges. Provide a lot of support for the student and their aspirations.

    It is expensive and your likely to take out loans but it is worth it. Many of the majors are competitive so make sure you are too so you get the most out of it.

    Reviewing as a parent, mostly for other parents from CA. This is a good school, no doubts on that. but if you have a kid who is not really ready for college and doesn't get into any CA schools, beware NAU's aggressive marketing and unconditional acceptance rates. Long story short, NAU kind of blocked our plan for our kid to go to a vocational school or CC first. Our kid vowed "to try really hard" to succeed (and yes, this school has TONS of resources if your kid is willing to avail themselves), and pleaded for "a real 4 year college experience". Yes, they'll give you the WUE rate, but that's still adding up to $26k per year all-in. Freshmen get on campus housing, no one else does, so be prepared for high rent off campus housing too. Despite good intentions, our kid has dropped out and come home with 0 credits and a 0 GPA. So beware and intercept those postcards. If you're an AZ student - highly recommend because our CA/WUE tuition will fund FREE tuition for you! Good luck.

    They give out tons of scholarships for in state and out of state students! In state tuition seems quite affordable. The WUE tuition lends a real helping hand.
