Northwest University’s College of Adult and Professional Studies
College of Adult and Professional Studies programs serve online and extension site students, offering academic programs in nontraditional hours and formats that enable working professionals to remain in their career while fulfilling their educational goals. The Program also serves other students by coordinating several nontraditional educational service programs, such as Prior Learning Assessment.
The College of Adult and Professional Studies delivers courses and academic majors through evening and weekend programs on the Kirkland and Oregon extension site. CAPS also delivers online courses through the NU Online program. In addition, the College facilitates the Northwest Partnership Program which partners with internship programs throughout the country. CAPS also serves students in many Christian high schools enabling students to earn concurrent college credits that satisfy the requirements of both their high school towards graduation and college degree.
Northwest University students are able to obtain credit for prior learning through several methods, all facilitated by the Office of the Provost and the College of Adult and Professional Studies. Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) covers credit earned via Certified Prior Learning as approved by the American Council on Education or the University, or submission of a Portfolio as outlined in the Prior Learning Assessment Guide.
