FLAGSTAFF, AZ: Northern
Arizona University (NAU) has awarded over $450,000 to students through its 2NAU
scholarship over the last three years.
2NAU is a joint-admission
program that allows students to be admitted to NAU while still finishing their Arizona
community college courses. 2NAU students can access NAU student resources such
as advising and library databases while pursuing an associate degree.
The 2NAU program is
available through partnerships with most Arizona community colleges. It is
designed for first or second semester community college students to guide them
through their associate degree and seamlessly into their bachelor’s degree
The 2NAU joint-admission
program launched in Fall 2010. Since Fall 2011, NAU has offered exclusive scholarships
to 2NAU students in hopes to ease the financial burden of transitioning to a
bachelor’s degree program.
As of Fall 2014, NAU has awarded
eligible 2NAU students a total of $481,529. 2NAU students who have finished their associate degree and transitioned to NAU this semester have until March 1st to submit their community college transcripts to be eligible for the Spring 2015 scholarship funds.
“The 2NAU scholarship
demonstrates how NAU values our transfer students,” says Doug Small, Director
of Strategic Partnerships and Business Development. “NAU works hard to make a bachelor’s degree
affordable for students and their families so that they can make a difference
in their communities.”
