In 1886, National College was founded in Roanoke, Virginia as National Business College. The college's large central campus eventually evolved into a multi-campus system operating throughout the Southeast, merging with Fugazizi College of Business & Technology and the Kentucky College of Business. Upon recognition of its graduate level programs, the Roanoke Valley campus rebranded itself as American National University in 2013. National College now has 22 campus locations across four states - Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, and Tennessee. Its sister school, American National, provides an additional nine campus locations in Virginia and West Virginia.
