Financial Aid For Everyone

School is an investment that will pay dividends for the rest of your life. At the same time, we understand that finances can be tight. That's why at Northwest University, we offer financial aid for every full-time student enrolled in the College of Adult & Professional Studies. It can help make the dream of earning your degree a reality. For more information about available aid please visit our Financial Aid page.

Payment Plans

Tuition is to be paid in full each semester at registration, unless other arrangements are made with Student Accounts. Each student will be required to sign a contract/promissory note agreeing to payment terms prior to the start of class each semester.

Monthly Payment Plan

This plan is designed for students who wish to spread out their educational costs into monthly payments. Northwest University has partnered with Tuition Management Systems (TMS) at or 800-356-8329 to handle all monthly payment plans. They provide an annual 12 month payment plan for the entire year costs; a single semester plan is also available if needed. Payments would only be made on your costs not covered by financial aid (excluding work study).

Employer Assisted Payments

The University will provide information your employer needs to approve the program or the individual modules within the program. A grade report will be issued approximately two weeks after the end of each module enabling you to submit your reimbursement requests on a timely basis.

Even though you may be reimbursed for educational costs by your employer, you are expected to use one of the payment plans offered by the University or negotiate a separate payment schedule with Student Accounts if tuition is not to be paid in full at registration.

Veteran's Assistance Benefits

The College of Adult & Professional Studies is approved for Veteran's Administration Benefits. You can contact the VA Coordinator at the Registrar's Office at 425-889-5228 or your local veterans administration office for assistance.

Pay In Full Plan

This plan allows you to pay your semester costs, after your financial aid is taken into consideration, by the first day of classes. Northwest University conveniently accepts credit cards (either in person or over the phone), cash, or personal checks.
