About National American University-Independence

National American University (NAU) is a regionally accredited, multi-campus institution of higher learning offering associate, bachelor’s, and master’s degree programs in healthcare and business-related disciplines. In 1941, NAU opened its first campus in Rapid City, South Dakota, and has since grown to multiple locations throughout the central United States, near major cities like Minneapolis, Dallas, Austin, and Kansas City. Today, NAU offers traditional degree programs, online college degrees, and hybrid formats, which provide students the increased flexibility to take courses at times and places convenient to their busy lifestyles.

National American University offers the degree programs that today’s industries are most demanding. NAU is committed to preparing you for a rewarding career directly out of college. We do that by implementing highly qualified instructors who have actively worked in the fields in which they teach, offering you their “real-world experience”; perspective. Another example of our commitment to your career education is our use of program advisory boards. These key individuals make recommendations to the existing programs, ensuring the material we teach stays current and up-to-date. We realize that our programs need to continually evolve as industry changes.

Our staff is devoted to helping you balance your education with your personal and professional commitments. NAU will be with you every step of the way —-it’s a key part of our personal relationship with you. From the moment you contact us, you will be personally guided through the admissions and financing process, and provided academic advising assistance throughout your college career to ensure a timely graduation. We are there to help you find ways to make life work outside of the classroom so you can focus on your success inside the classroom.

National American University is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission and a member of the North Central Association |
