Not every university can offer you this kind of personally transforming environment. We can, and you'll experience it in all kinds of ways: the wide variety of courses that open up new worlds for you, the professors who challenge and support you, and the research projects and internships that let you apply what you learn.
Campus Location - NAU is situated at the base of the San Francisco Peaks at 7,000 feet.
Helpful Information - Flagstaff is a bike friendly community. You can check out a bike on-campus from the Yellow Bike Program http://nau.edu/Green-NAU/Yellow-Bike-Program/. The on-campus shuttle was expanded in 2012 that links students to off-campus locations (such as downtown). Mt Line provides bus transportation throughout Flagstaff.

Exchange with Canada - Health Insurance
For Plan A U.S. students, aid is awarded by and disbursed from your host campus. Students apply for federally funded financial aid by using the FAFSA code of their host campus. Host campuses award aid to incoming Plan A students on a first-come, first-served basis as long as funds are available. Ask your home campus NSE coordinator if your campus awards aid to their own outgoing students. If so, do not apply for aid from your host campus.
For eligible Plan A applicants U.S. federal financial aid may be available in the following programs:
For Plan B students, aid is awarded by and disbursed from your home campus.
Regardless of Plan A or Plan B, students exchanging to or from Canada, apply for financial aid at their home campus.
Housing fills to capacity every semester. We currently have an on-campus housing shortage. If you plan to live on-campus you should submit your housing application at the earliest date available. This date is determined by Residence Life. The contract for living on-campus is for a full academic year (both fall and spring semesters) or spring only. If you are at NAU for fall semester only you will need to provide documentation to Residence Life and complete a form from their office at the end of fall semester to be released from your housing contract.
