Northwest to Help Bethany Students

With the recent announcement of the closing of Bethany University, Northwest University is prepared to assist their students by letting them transfer all earned credits with no increase in tuition expense.

“I’ve been in close contact with President Lewis Shelton throughout his efforts to save Bethany, and all of us at Northwest share in the sense of grief the whole Bethany community is feeling. We’re committed to making a generous effort to minimize the financial impact of the closure on Bethany’s students,” stated Joseph Castleberry, President of Northwest University.

“We will commit to matching their net price, including Cal Grant funds, in that net price for their current enrollees,” stated Dan Neary, Executive Vice President at Northwest University. This offer will be extended for tuition for the 2011-2012 year. Athletic scholarships will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

To facilitate the transfer process, Northwest has created a simplified application form for Bethany students ( Students can begin the process by filling out the abbreviated application, submitting unofficial transcripts while official transcripts are being processed, and a copy of their most recent financial aid award letter. Students can also add Northwest U to their 2011-2012 FAFSA (Title IV Code: 003783).

Another option for Bethany students is the Northwest University Salem campus located on Bethel Park in Brooks, Ore. For more information about this location check out
