A Higher Calling
Many large online universities focus on growing their business. As a private, non-profit Christian university, our calling is much higher: we seek greater growth for you. Each online course is designed to enhance your career in a supportive environment that welcomes your faith. And because of our smaller class sizes, we offer learning experiences that are more engaging, personal, and tailored to your unique needs. What’s your highest calling in life? We can help you get there.

Thank you so much for your guidance and help. It is so encouraging to know that I am not in this alone. Thank you for the interest you have taken in me and for being such an encouraging part of my journey. The admissions process can be confusing, but my experience at Northwest has been wonderful. Thank you for being a good servant.
