Online Student resources
Going to class online may seem like an easy route to earning a degree but in reality it can be more time consuming and challenging than a traditional face-to-face program. The good news is, at NNU, you won’t have to go it alone. You’ll have access to support services and resources to help you navigate the challenges of both technology and academics so you can truly take advantage of the convenience and accessibility online programs offer.
From the first day of classes through commencement, the Center for Academic Success & Advising offers a full array of academic services including: tutoring, academic coaching, disability support for academics, academic advising for select majors and “deciding” students, and test proctoring services.

NC-SARA: Consumer Protection for Online Education
NNU is a member of the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA). NC-SARA membership entails both assurance of program quality and consumer protection standards for distance and online learning. In fields leading to professional licensure, we recommend students check with the licensing agency in their home state prior to enrolling in a program of study to determine what regulations, if any, apply to education programs in their state. To help students with these questions we have developed specific Professional Licensure resource pages for each NNU program that leads to licensure.
