National University

National University is a San Diego-based nonprofit founded in 1971 by retired U.S. Navy Lt. Cmdr. David Chigos. As the largest private nonprofit university in San Diego, our mission is to provide accessible, achievable higher education to adult learners. We’ve offered online classes for more than 20 years. Today, we educate students across all 50 states and from 65 countries, offering over 100 on-campus and online programs through our unique four-week class format. Our undergraduate and graduate programs include healthcare, business, education, engineering, law and criminal justice, and homeland security. Classes are available online or at over 20 locations in California and Nevada. As the top educator of educators in California, we have credentialed more teachers than any other California university.

Why you should attend?

At National University, we're committed to serving those who serve by offering military tuition discounts and scholarships for military personnel and their dependents. In addition to online programs, military students have access to classes on over a dozen military bases and to our Veteran Center designed to ease the transition from military to civilian life. As a Yellow Ribbon school, we accept the post 9/11 GI Bill®, so veteran and active-duty students pay virtually no out-of-pocket costs for their education.
