Student Services

Academic Assistance

Learning - Student WritingAt National University, we understand that studying for health care professions can be demanding. That's why we're committed to helping you academically when you need it. Many of our students take advantage of one or more of our learning assistance or curriculum programs listed below.

Learning Assistance

Peer tutoring and faculty advising are two services that benefit students who desire assistance in their studies.

Faculty Student Advisors
Every new professional degree student is paired with a faculty advisor before entering the program. In fact, you'll have your first conversation with your faculty advisor before you register for your first class. This allows you to ask any academic questions and discuss options such as "Flex Tracks." Your faculty advisor is a resource for you throughout your program.

Peer Tutoring Assistance
Peer tutoring is a free service offered to any student. Tutoring is available for a variety of courses on a first-come, first-served basis. The tutoring is provided either one-on-one, or in small groups, by students who have already demonstrated proficiency in specific subjects. Peer tutoring is intended to supplement, not replace, class attendance and personal study time. Tutors may help clarify points from lectures, labs, group discussions or assigned readings.

Customized Phase Curriculum for DC and ND Programs

LearningOur phase curriculum can be adapted to an appropriate pace for students to succeed.

Flex Tracks
Students may slow down and take less credit hours per term if needed. They can choose to take either Phase I or Phase II in 4, 5, or 6 trimesters. This will lengthen the total time to complete the program, but not the cost (total credit hours for the program remain the same). 

Social Support

Professional and Academic Student Organizations
National University has several professional and academic student organizations that often host technique practice sessions, guest speakers, professional development seminars, and community service opportunities. Participation in one or more such groups will not only help you stay abreast of topics in your field, but will help you network with other future professionals for lifelong friendships.
