For over a century, Northwestern College has pursued its mission of providing a quality education to students interested in building a better life for themselves by offering career-focused college degrees. Our accredited, respected associate’s degree programs are taught by highly qualified instructors, while the convenient, innovative online format gives working students the flexibility to arrange their course work and study time around their busy schedules.
Besides a high-caliber education, we provide a variety of services to help our students focus on and prepare for the next exciting steps in their lives and careers. Our financial aid staff is committed to helping students through the financial aid process and to identify all potential sources of assistance. Each student is assigned a Personal Student Services Coordinator to assist with any questions or problems. Our support doesn’t stop when we hand over a diploma, either: Northwestern College offers lifetime career assistance in the form of job placement help and externship opportunities.
Northwestern College is regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools and our programs are also approved and accredited by recognized educational associations.
Northwestern College offers three associate’s degree (AAS) programs online:
