National American University is both a traditional campus-based university as well as an online degree university. This combination of options is ideal for working students, full or part-time students, and even those that want to take one or two courses for professional development or general interest. Online courses offer the flexibility of being able to ask questions, contact instructors or study and review course materials at any time of day, from any computer that has Internet access. Online learning also provides the ideal match for professionals that don't want to have to take time off work while earning their degree.
As a fully accredited university through the Higher Learning Commission as well as a member of the North Central Association, National American University is also accredited through several other agencies for specific programs. These accreditations include the Committee on Veterinary Technician Education, Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs, the American Bar Association and the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education. All staff members have at least a master's degree and are professionals in their field, ensuring that students obtain the most up to date and cutting edge information within their professional field. Students completing online studies are taught by instructors that are knowledgeable about online learning and course presentation and are also aware of the unique difficulties that online learning can pose to students. Instructors are able to contact students through emails, live chats and even through teleconferences to ensure that questions are answered and that students receive the same level of personal education that in-class students have access to.
Online programs are typically funded differently than in-person classes, so financial advisors are on hand either by phone, email, or through the student portal link to provide assistance in completing applications or following up on questions. Students can complete courses including business administration, nursing, applied management, healthcare management, and information technology online.
The major goal of National American University is to prepare learners and graduates both with theory as well as practical knowledge they will need to be successful in their career choices. Classes will have an in-depth use of real world scenarios and applications, some which will come from the professional work of the students themselves. Interaction between the university and the business world means that graduates are well prepared to move into upper level positions with the practical knowledge they need on the job.
