Why should you come to Northwest?

Northwest offers more than 124 undergraduate majors and 73 minors. Ninety-five percent of our tenure track faculty has the highest degree in their fields, and our classes are taught by full-time professors, not by graduate assistants. Our faculty will challenge you academically while providing you the skills and knowledge necessary for a successful career.

Affordability

Northwest is one of the most affordable universities in the Midwest. Northwest offers a variety of automatic scholarships based on your GPA. Use our net price calculator to see your actual cost to attend.

Profession-Based Experience

In our Horace Mann Laboratory School, students majoring in education get a true inside view of what teaching is all about. Northwest offers several other opportunities for profession-based experiences including internships, the University farm for agriculture majors, on-campus radio and television stations, volunteer work and more.


The Right Size

Northwest currently has about 6,800 students. This size offers great opportunities for students to succeed socially as well as academically. With a student-to-faculty ratio of 22-to-1, you will never feel like a number.

Student Success

More than 98 percent of Northwest graduates find employment or continue their education within six months of graduation. Northwest's graduation rate has continually topped our competitors.
