NAU’s Online Hotel & Restaurant Management Program Ranked A “Best Buy”

The ranking gurus over at just named Northern Arizona University’s online Hotel & Restaurant Management (HRM) degree as a “Best Buy” among affordable online degrees in management. 

They ranked our HRM degree program #26 in the nation and tops in Arizona

OK, we love winning awards and it’s always nice to be named the "best". . . but let’s just clear something up right now. 

Not one NAU-Extended Campuses student pays $42,744 in tuition for their HRM bachelor’s degree. 

Zero. None. Zilch. 

That huge tuition figured was calculated based on our credit hour costs ($345/hour, the lowest in the state) times the 120 credits for a bachelor’s degree, plus eight semesters of fees. 

Well, at NAU-Extended Campuses, we cap our tuition for full-time students at $3,353 a semester. So eight semesters at five classes a semester (or 120 credit hours) really equals $26,824. 

That’s a lot lower. 

Now, factor in this: With 2NAU and other transfer programs, we’ve actually cut the cost of a four-year bachelor’s degree to under $15,000. 


Where would that more realistic total put us on GetEducated’s ranking chart?
