Weekly Course Starts & No Physical Residency Mean Your Course Room is Wherever You Are, When You Want to Be There
At NCU, every course is taught one-to-one. Our class size of one means every course can be started any week of the year. Unlike semester or quarterly enrollment schedules, as a student at NCU, you do not have to worry about wait lists, cancelled courses due to under enrollment, or delays in your schedule because the course you need isn't available.
I needed a school that fit my lifestyle as an adult learner with a full-time job. NCU is regionally accredited and met my scheduling needs because it is completely online. It also has a very good One-to-One program between faculty mentors and students. -- Debra McManimon, PhD in Business Administration
In addition, our weekly course starts combined with no physical residency requirements and the convenience of online learning ensures you have the flexibility you need to pursue your personal and professional goals at Northcentral University.
No Physical Residency Requirements
Who has the extra time or money needed to take time off work or be away from your family to travel somewhere for a residency requirement for school?
Our degree programs are carried out online without any physical residencies or in-person sessions. In other words, you can be a part of the Northcentral learning community regardless of your geographic location, as long as you have access to the Internet and fulfill our admissions requirements. The only time you might see us in person is if you decide to attend your graduation at our annual commencement ceremony in the beautiful state of Arizona!
We meet you where you are.
Just because you don’t have to see us in person doesn’t mean we don’t recognize the importance of communication and faculty-student interaction in higher education. We think it is essential! This is why we utilize a One-to-One Learning Model and take advantage of vast technologies that promote synchronous interaction (telephone, chat) and can even bring you face-to-face with your faculty mentor though Skype or video chat/conferencing without forcing you to travel across the country or halfway around the world.
The difference is you have the flexibility to choose when and where you work on your weekly assignments so you can fit pursuing your goals online into your schedule and your budget. And best of all, we’ll be with you every step of the way so you can be assured that the help and support you need—including academic, technical and financial services—are never more than a phone call or email away. It’s part of our commitment to flexibility and ensuring that Northcentral works for working professionals.
*Northcentral University requires students to maintain continuous enrollment and be in attendance at least once every 28 calendar days from the last date of recorded attendance. See the NCU Course Catalog for more information.
