NUA does not reimburse for LiveScan. The cost of LiveScan fingerprinting depends on the LiveScan provider. Please check the lists above and choose a provider that is within your budget.

What counts as Liability Insurance?

As a public school, we are responsible for the safety and well-being of our students. Given this, we require all vendors to hold at least $100,000 in liability insurance. This is generally included in your renter’s or homeowner’s policy. If you do not currently have liability insurance, please contact your general insurance provider to find out how you can obtain coverage. The major insurance companies will provide you with rates and information on how to apply for coverage.

Please turn in the Declarations Page from your insurance policy, showing the expiration date, as well as the amount of coverage. National University Academy must be listed as a certificate holder/insured on your declarations page.

Where can I find a fillable W-9 Form?

The following is a link to an online W-9. You must print and sign the completed document.

When might I expect to hear from you regarding my application?

Our vendor management specialist will be in touch as soon as your application is complete and has been approved. For materials vendors, this usually takes 3-5 business days after receipt of your application. The wait is a little longer for VCI  (classes, lessons, services) vendors, as your LiveScan fingerprinting must first be cleared, which can take up to two weeks.

Will I be listed on your school’s vendor list?

Yes, you will be added to our vendor lists as soon as your application is approved.

How will you help advertise my business to your students?

All vendors are added to Vendor Lists. These are available on our parent-friendly website, so parents always have access. Please feel free to send a flyer along with your vendor application. We can post this to the vendor page on our parent-friendly website. We host Vendor Fairs in Orange and San Diego Counties at the beginning of each school year. Vendors are invited to this event to meet students and their parents, and to pass out flyers and other information. You can also be featured in our monthly newsletter, which is distributed to all parents and students. All vendors are listed in the “New Vendors” section of the newsletter, and there is the option to be featured in our “Vendor Spotlight” section. If you would like to be included, please email a brief description of your services to

Do you offer a training session for new vendors?

We offer a vendor training/Q&A meeting in August, just before the start of the school year.

All vendors will receive a copy of the training PowerPoint presentation with their vendor welcome email.

What is your school invoicing process?

All school orders (materials and lessons/classes) are placed via purchase orders. Service vendor POs are sent out monthly and vendors are expected to invoice monthly. Materials vendors use their own company invoices. We request that service vendors use our school invoice template. A sample invoice, as well as a blank invoice, can be found below for your convenience.
All invoices are sent to Vendor Management at or faxed to Vendor Management at  (760) 631-6201.
