Northern Arizona University at South Mountain Community College
Northern Arizona University (NAU) and South Mountain Community College (SMCC) have teamed up to create a program that allows students to complete their bachelor’s degree on the SMCC campus after finishing their associate’s degree.
In fact, through the new Connect-2-NAU program, you can now enroll and be admitted jointly to both institutions at the same time---to make your academic journey totally seamless, and all the more rewarding!
NAU @ SMCC is a unique opportunity to experience your undergraduate education at two fine institutions without ever leaving the SMCC campus.
Northern Arizona University and South Mountain Community College participate in the NAU/MCCCD Connection to offer a comprehensive undergraduate experience unlike any other.
Undergraduate students can complete their bachelor's degrees without transferring from one school to another. Graduate students will be able to take courses in their own neighborhood in a convenient evening format.
Tuition is the lowest among the major state universities and personalized service is our promise to you.
The NAU building is located southwest of the Performing Arts Center (PAC) on the SMCC campus.
NAU @ SMCC offers Bachelor’s degree programs in Elementary Education and Interdisciplinary Studies starting this fall. The Interdisciplinary Studies degree is a 90/30 program, in which a student can take up to 90 credit hours at the community college level.
For registration information, call NAU @ SMCC at 602.776.4647.
More bachelor’s degrees will be offered at the SMCC campus in the future, based on local interest and enrollment.
Students will be able to save time and money by taking their first two years at SMCC and their last two at NAU. Other benefits include low tuition and no travel costs. An advisor will be available on campus to assist students with enrollment, and a local financial aid advisor will be available in Phoenix to assist students with questions and issues relative to financial aid.
