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.

Exceptional Education

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.

24/7 Help

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

Online Learning Website

Once you log into our online programs, you’ll notice how easy and intuitive things are.

Best of all, you can do it from anywhere and on your own schedule.
