"I chose Northwest for my graduate degree because I knew that I would get the same quality education that I got from Northwest for my undergraduate degree. When I left Northwest I truly felt prepared to enter the classroom and now I have gained additional knowledge that I can use in my classroom every day. I am and will continue to be 'Once a Bearcat, always a Beacat'."
"The reason I chose Northwest Missouri State University's Alternative Certification Program was that it came highly recommended by a respected colleague with whom I work. I entered the program because I thought it was a great way to earn graduate credit and also receive a professional certificate that I can use for a lifetime."

"My experience with Northwest and the staff in St. Joseph, Maryville and Liberty have left me feeling confident and empowered. I would highly recommend the Alternative Certification program. They prepare you for real life experiences that you will encounter in the future job. I have no regrets and look forward to continuing my educational learning through Northwest."
