Preparing for Northwest

Your First Steps

Northwest Network Account

Your Northwest Network Account consists of a username and password. Your username was provided to you in your acceptance letter. You will use this account during your time at Northwest for tasks such as accessing your Northwest email, applying for major-specific scholarships and viewing your class schedule in CatPAWS.

To set your initial password, visit Bearcat Login and click the Padlock icon labeled ‘First Time Login’. You will set your password using your mobile phone number and email that were entered on your application.

Health History Form

Prior to starting classes at Northwest-Kansas City, students must complete and return a Health History form. The form can be found at and should be submitted to Wellness Services at least 30 days before classes begin.

In addition to completing a Health History form, students must submit immunization records showing two (2) doses of MMR vaccine and the Meningococcal Vaccine.
