High school graduates, make earning your college degree a reality!
In the new, innovative Harrison Professional Pathways Program, students can earn a bachelor’s degree at a significantly reduced tuition rate of $40,000 ($10,000 per year) and choose any of NLU's undergraduate degree options in business, education, human services, criminal justice, health care, communications and more!
- A FOUNDATION FOR SUCCESS
The first two years are based on a standardized general education curriculum designed to create a framework of applied and collaborative learning, intellectual skills, specialized knowledge, broad integrative knowledge, civic and global learning and leadership. This experience is customized for each student and critical for life as well as professional success.
- A CLEAR PATHWAY
Students choose between three curricular paths for their first two years — general studies, education or business. These paths will enable students to proceed in earning their bachelor’s degrees in any of NLU’s undergraduate programs.
- A CONVENIENT CHOICE
Classes will be offered at NLU’s Chicago and Wheeling, IL campuses in a blended model with some content delivered online and some face-to-face.
- A SUPPORTIVE ENVIRONMENT
Our unique support model ensures students are provided with the individualized guidance they need to succeed. Student Success Coaches provide personal, professional, and academic support throughout students’ time at NLU.
