College Navigator

As you make your college decision it is important that you make an informed decision around the college that is right for you. One such tool is the College Navigator. The College Navigator allows you to search and compare colleges on a wide range of criteria including costs, majors offered, size of school, campus safety as well as graduation rates.

As you compare universities, it is important to recognize that the data is focused on students that are attending college on a full time basis and for the first time. As a result the data you see for National Louis represents a small portion of our enrollment. Many of our programs are designed for students that have previously attended college and have already earned college credit. We have, however, just introduced Pathways at NLU which is geared toward first time students that have earned no more than 30 hours of college credit. The cost of the program is approximately $10,000 per year and your cost could be much less if you are Pell Grant or Map Grant eligible. To learn more about the program, please contact National Louis or go to:

After you have reviewed the information contained in the College Navigator, please let us know if you have any questions. Here is the link for your convenience:
