National American University makes returning to college a reality for many professionals
Austin, TX (PRWEB) January 18, 2008
National American University (NAU), a fully accredited, four-year university granting degrees on the bachelor's, associate and master's levels, ushered in its first Texas students in Austin earlier this month. The university's primary goal is to assist working adults in earning bachelors, associate and masters degrees.
NAU's new Austin campus will be located on Mopac in the Wells Branch area, and classes have begun in temporary office space until the new campus facility is completed in March of this year.
During its 66 year history, the university system has successfully launched over 15 different campus locations. NAU commissioned a market study in 2004 that determined an Austin campus would flourish in the Central Texas area.
"National American University makes returning to college a reality for many professionals," states J.P. Foley, SW Regional Vice President of the new campus. "Quarterly scheduling, flexible learning formats, like accelerated and distance learning are combined with the personal attention expected at a private university - to give students the edge they need to balance college coursework along with family and work demands."
National American University offers a wide-range of course offerings. At the new Austin campus, NAU will begin offering courses within the business, management and information technology degree programs initially and add additional programs, including an MBA degree and nursing programs, as the needs of the Austin market determine.
Claudia Maldonado, a new enrollee at the college stated, "I selected NAU as my path for gaining my college degree, because they are the only college that has taken the time to assist me with analyzing my previous college hours and fitting them into my future degree plan. It is hard to commit to returning to school until you get the plan in place, and NAU made it easy."
NAU holds equivalent accreditation standards as state universities like The University of Texas at Austin or Texas A&M, which are members of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. With its first campus and central administrative offices located in South Dakota, National American University is regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and a member of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, http://www.ncahlc.org , (312) 263-0456.
