Northwest offers a self enrollment system for preregistration through 'CatPAWS. Midterm grades, final grades and academic history records (transcripts) are also available on 'CatPAWS.
If for any reason students cannot use the web-based system, they can enroll or adjust schedules in the Registrar's office with signed pre-enrollment forms or drop/add forms.
Enrollment begins with the initial time and continues through January 15, 2017 for the Spring 2017 trimester.
