2021-2022 Undergraduate Catalog

Admission to Undergraduate Study

Northwest is designated as a moderately selective university. The Admissions office therefore evaluates students for admission based on their unique academic ability that meets our moderately selective criteria. Northwest accepts students regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, pregnancy, ancestry, age, disability, genetic information, veteran status, or any other legally-protected class. Prospective students and their caregivers (parents, family, and guardians) are encouraged to visit Northwest. To schedule a visit, call the Northwest Office of Admissions toll-free at (800) 633-1175.

To apply, complete the appropriate Northwest Application for Admission and submit official high school and/or college transcripts, ACT/SAT scores as appropriate and other documents that may be requested during the admission review process. All materials should be received by the Northwest Office of Admissions at least two weeks before the anticipated date of enrollment, if possible. Documents submitted during the application process will not be returned. When admitted students register, such documents become part of the student's official academic record. Such students may review, but not remove, documents from their academic records.
