2016-2017 Undergraduate Catalog

Pre-Professional Programs

Northwest offers pre-professional courses of study which encompass many careers. In most instances, these courses have been compiled in conjunction with specific requirements of professional schools. Many professional schools require specific procedures in regard to entrance tests, application deadlines and interviews. Thus, it is mandatory that students have a specific pre-professional advisor who is versed in the necessary requirements for admission to the professional school.

In many professions, no specific undergraduate major must be followed and the student may major in any area of interest. Therefore, students should have both a pre-professional and a major advisor.
