Once they sent me the portfolio telling me how much scholarship I was awarded, I was amazed that NNU can be so affordable, especially compared to even some of the state schools that I was looking at, that were really close to home. That’s when I realized that actually NNU was the most affordable school out of all the schools I was looking at and so that was when my decision was made.
