Let's Talk About Value
Ask our graduates what was most
valuable to them during their time at NNU, and we'll bet they don't say a word about financial aid.
We get it! Funding your college education can be a concern. At NNU, we know that one key consideration in the decision-making process is finances, and we recognize and acknowledge that covering the cost of college is a challenge for many families. We believe a Christian college though, and specifically NNU, is a great choice and a worth-while investment.
We believe you will find the academically rigorous and transformative education within a Christian community to be worth the price.
