Northcentral University provides premier online education to students globally who are pursuing regionally-accredited bachelors completion, graduate and doctoral degrees in professionally-relevant programs in areas such as Criminal Justice, Homeland Security and Organizational Leadership to help you make a difference in your organization.

With Schools of Business and Technology Management, Education and Social and Behavioral Sciences, NCU is designed for self-starters who seek to achieve their career and academic goals. Utilizing a unique one-to-one learning model, each NCU student is in a classroom of ONE and mentored by a doctoral professor who is experienced in their field of study. Students develop current skills that are immediately applicable to their areas of interest.

Northcentral University is regionally accredited by WASC Senior College and University Commission. NCU also has programs that have received programmatic accreditations including the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs and the Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education.

A common challenge for working students is fitting career, family and school into a 24-hour day. NCU makes earning an advanced degree possible despite life’s challenges. Each student’s pace, learning, and growth aren’t dictated by other students. There are no group projects or class times. NCU’s programs advance students’ ability to think critically and reflectively, while upholding the highest ethical and professional standards. In order to facilitate efficient learning, we utilize the best-in-class technology.

With courses beginning every Monday, students have unparalleled flexibility to customize a degree program to fit their lives.

There are no physical residency requirements which makes NCU a convenient choice for working professionals, military personnel and international students.

NCU is proud to offer a uniquely flexible educational pathway that supports student success – and we’re also delighted to be a partner of the Houston Police Officers Union.
