Limited visits are available in an attempt to accommodate the busy schedule of our prospective students. However, these tours are limited because classes are not in session and many of our students and faculty will be away from campus. In some cases, facilities are also closed for that period of time. You may not obtain a true picture of campus life as we know it during a limited visit. However, if this is still the best time for you to visit Northwest then please feel free to contact us, as tours depart at 10:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. Monday through Friday. Following the walking tour, you will have the opportunity to meet with an admissions representative to discuss admissions, scholarships, financial assistance and housing options.
