Why Choose Northwest University Online Programs?
Highest Institutional Accreditation
Accreditation is important. It means that the college has met certain standards and offers qualifications that will be recognized by other schools or by an employer. Not all online programs are accredited—something you never have to worry about at NU.
With over 80 years of experience, we’ve taken all of that knowledge to create online courses that engage, inspire, and prepare. Many of our online courses are identical to our on-campus programs. The only difference? You can take them from anywhere.
Your Faith Is Integrated
NU is a Christian university. Every course we offer has a unique component that helps you understand how the subject relates to your faith. Unlike other online programs, NU actually encourages your faith. Most students find this to be a refreshing approach
Caring and Responsive Faculty
The online instructors at Northwest University, aren’t simply hired for their knowledge. We also look for professors who love students and bring out their very best. Many come from local companies and offer real-world insight into your career.
The Pacific Northwest = Innovation
Our campus is part of a culture that has produced word-changing innovations. Microsoft is just up the street. Amazon is just across the bridge. This same spirit of innovation led us as we developed our online programs.
If you ever have a technical problem, there is help available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. But here is the good news. Our technology and user-interface are so reliable and easy to use, they are rarely—if ever—needed.
Learn In a Community
Even though our courses are online, you’ll learn with others. Every student is placed in a cohort of classmates who are in the same program. Through message boards, email, and other online tools, you’ll develop an encouraging community of learners.
Welcome To Your Learning Platform
Once you log into our online programs, you’ll notice how easy and intuitive things are. In no time at all, you’ll be watching videos, visiting the library, uploading assignments, and weighing in on message boards with your classmates. Best of all, you can do it from anywhere and on your own schedule.
NOTE: Northwest University is not currently authorized to accept applications to our online programs (with the exception of the M.A. in International Community Development) from residents of these states: Connecticut, DC, Florida, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Wisconsin. This information will be updated as additional state authorizations are secured.
