Campus and Residence

National American University had several campuses at various locations across Georgia, South Dakota, Colorado, Kansas, Texas, and Indiana. However, with a shift to online education, the NAU campuses have started to close as of 2019. All the locations do not offer all the degrees; some programs are specific to a given location only. Each location has its unique facilities and sights. 

The traditional classes at NAU are offered only to military personnel at the Georgia location. The central administration office of NAU is in Rapid City, South Dakota.

Because of the online programs offered at NAU, there are no on-campus housing options available for students.
