Donors Make a Real Difference

Community support for National University’s initiatives is imperative to the success of our students, alumni, and community. Although we work tirelessly to build our endowment, our generous donors help us provide new programs, technologies, and scholarships that further our core values of quality, access, relevance, accelerated pace, affordability, and community.

Since 1971, we’ve supported adult learners — from parents raising families and working full-time jobs to military servicemembers serving at home and abroad — through our affordable, accessible education. Our unique four-week class format has helped over 150,000 students graduate. Today, we offer over 100 degree programs online and at over 20 campus locations across California and in Nevada, and we’re located on over a dozen military bases nationwide. Last year, NU was ranked #1 in Southern California and #18 in the nation in the category of Best Colleges Serving Adult Learners by Washington Monthly.

Your donations and gifts are an investment in the future of these students and alumni. New programs provide the skills and expertise our students need to further their careers. Innovative technologies help us provide accessible education to more adult learners. Scholarships provide opportunity for students who were previously unable to afford a college education.

Affordable and accessible education is life changing for adult learners. Your donations not only positively affect the lives of our students but also the lives of their families and generations to come. Thank you for your support.
