Why Give to National University?

What do today's students need? A quality education; a degree that is respected in the community and will further them in their career paths.

What don't they need? To be unemployed "career students" who deplete their savings and remain static in their career skills while fulfilling their educational goals.

More than 114,000 students have discovered National University as the answer to their higher education needs. In fact, National University is one of the largest, private, nonprofit institutions of higher education in California.

National University students earn their degrees in a unique one-month format and attend classes at night so they can continue to move forward in the workplace. Their programs are accelerated so that, although intense, their studies are completed faster than they would be at a traditional university. 

What sets National University apart from its competitors? Quality. The University is regionally accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), and participates in the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Program, which recognizes leadership, quality and overall institutional performance. In 2003, the University received its second consecutive "Baby Baldrige" Eureka Award for Performance Excellence from the California Council for Excellence.

Community support for the University and its initiatives is imperative to its success and sustainability. Although National University is seeking aggressively to build its endowment, support of new programs, technologies, and scholarships is crucial to ensuring the provision of our core values of quality, access, relevance, accelerated pace, affordability and community to our students, alumni, and friends.
