I was informed yesterday on June 21,2019 that if I keep getting the Full Loan Amounts during each quarter that My Loan amounts would run out before I graduate at National American University. I have been asked by my Academic Advisor to start completing College Scholarship Applications in order to prevent myself from not Graduating and receiving my Associate's Degree in Criminal Justice at National American University in the up coming years at NAU. I am requesting that someone please if you can please help me save myself and my college career so that I will and would be able to Graduate College from National American University and be able to receive my Associate's Degree in Criminal Justice. My mom saw my brother and sister graduate high school from Rome High School here in Rome, Ga.
Thank you so very much, Howard Pledger

While attending NAU, I encountered many challenges. But the staff was very helpful and knowledgeable about what needed to be done in order for me to graduate. It was a long 18months through their diploma class for massage. But I was able to get through it with the help of classmates, teachers and staff members cheering me on until completion. And I still keep in contact with some of the staff from time to time, to keep them updated on how things are going.
I do half my classes on line and on ground. I really do enjoy it. There tutoring online that will help me out! The college has very nice people that are willing to help out in anyway. I would definitely recommend this school to any other student debating where they should go in life. The awesome thing is that it will cost me under 30K to pursue my career.
