National University is a school that allows Clark County School District employees or any student a chance to full fill a college degree at a fast pace. It helps employees of the Clark County School District, as myself, become a licensed teacher with the convenience of taking classes online. I, Kaira Mendez, am a full time single mom and employee. The fact that I am able to complete courses online from the comfort of my home gives me ease in not missing any time with my children. National University works with the students very well in helping them organize their classes, setting them up with financial aid, or any matter. I would recommend any one interested in starting their college experience to attend National University.

I love the class format of 4 weeks for non-lab classes and 8 weeks for lab science classes! It's pretty intense, but if you are trying to knock out your goals as quickly as you can, this is the way to go! Having most of my classes online really is nice too because I can log in at my own leisure for the most part, and do my assignments when I'm not working.
My experience with National University has been overall good. It is convenient with my full time work schedule and taking classes online has not been a challenge for me. I appreciate that they offer both, online and in-class experiences. The academic advisors have been a little disorganized but the one that I have now is great. However, I feel that it is way too expensive for the quality of education. If I had the time to go through a tradition university for a fraction of the price, I would!
