Admissions Standings

Students admitted to Northwest University are assigned one of the following three standings.

Regular Standing

Regular standing is granted to an admitted applicant who meets all requirements for admission and is pursuing a degree or approved certificate from the University. Regular standing requires an incoming 2.5 cumulative grade point average (GPA) in high school and/or college coursework.

Success Standing

Success standing is granted to an admitted applicant who shows the potential to successfully pursue studies at Northwest University but does not meet all requirements for regular standing. A minimum incoming GPA of 2.0 in high school and college coursework is normally required for admission with success standing. Students with an incoming GPA lower than 2.0 may be considered for admissions through an appeal process.

Conditional Standing

Conditional standing may be offered to a student who meets entrance requirements at Northwest University, but whose application is incomplete. Admission to Northwest University is conditional based upon satisfying specific requirements prior to full admission. Individuals admitted on Conditional standing will not be permitted to take courses for more than one term or session.

Non-Degree Seeking Student Status

A Non-Degree Seeking Student is not seeking a degree or approved certificate at the time of admission. Courses taken by a student while under this status are a part of the student’s permanent academic record, but are not guaranteed to apply to a degree or certificate offered by the institution. Specific course prerequisites must be satisfied regardless of a student’s admission status.

Transfer Credit

During the admissions process, official transcripts from all previously attended educational institutions are evaluated for the maximum amount of transfer credit possible. The results of this evaluative process are communicated to students and their academic advisors on a Transfer Report. Any subsequent credits earned by students must also be communicated via an official transcript, evaluated by the Registrar’s Office, and officially reported. This is applicable to prospective and enrolled students. See the Northwest University Credit Transfer Guide for further details.

Northwest University accepts the transfer A.A. (DTA) degree from those colleges in the State of Washington whose degree requirements conform to the guidelines of the Intercollege Relations Commission (ICRC).

Students desiring to transfer to the University from another institution accredited by one of the six regional associa­tions must follow the general instructions for admission and must see that transcripts of previous college work are sent to the Admissions Office. Course work in parallel courses or areas of instruction will be considered for transfer provided that they show a grade of “C-” or better. (Some majors may have a higher grade requirement for some of their courses.)

Academic work presented from colleges and universities that are recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) database but not accredited by one of the six regional associations is considered on a course-by-course basis and limited to a total of 30 semester credits from all such sources. College-level work considered occupational or reme­dial is not recognized for transfer. Please see the Northwest University Credit Transfer Guide for further details.

Nontraditional Sources of Credit

Credits through Testing – Northwest University accepts credits earned through the Advanced Placement Testing Program (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), the College Level Examination Program (CLEP), and the DANTES Subject Standardized Tests (D.S.S.T). Recommen­dations regarding college credit are made by the Registrar. 

Language Testing Policy – Students wishing to earn foreign language credit through testing will now do so using ACTFL (American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages) exams. Northwest University will accept a total of 12 credits, a maximum of 6 credits earned through OPI (Oral Proficiency Interview) or 12 credits earned through WPT (Written Proficiency Test). 3 WPT credits may be applied toward the Core Curriculum Humanities requirement and additional credits count as elective credits. Complete policy and Test links listed on Provost’s website.

Military Credit – Those having had military service may petition the Registrar’s Office for credits based on learning through military experience. Northwest considers the recommendations of the American Council on Education (ACE) in evaluating military-based credits.

Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) Credit – Credit can be requested for learning from experiences that occurred outside of a traditional classroom setting. Students may submit a portfolio documenting such learning. Students are charged a CPL Assessment Fee when they submit a previously completed license or credential for assessment by a Northwest University content expert. Students are charged a PLA Assessment Fee per credit requested, when they submit a portfolio demonstrating their prior learning acquired in a non-academic setting for assessment by a Northwest University content expert. PLA Evaluation is supervised by the Dean of the College of Adult and Professional Studies.

UNIV 1791 Prior Learning Assessment Course – Students who may be eligible to receive prior learning credit may take the 1-credit UNIV 1791 Prior Learning Assessment course offered online to determine if they are a viable candidate for this option.

Certified Prior Learning (CPL) – Nationally recognized licenses, certificates or on-the-job training may qualify for credit.

Pay In Full Plan

Tuition and fees are to be paid in full before the first day of classes each semester.

Monthly Payment Plan

Nelnet Campus Commerce - Students in Northwest University Oregon, Northwest Partnership Program and graduate students may wish to make monthly payments based on the annual cost of tuition and fees by enrolling with  Nelnet.  Please see the Northwest University web site for  enrollment information: https://www.northwestu.edu/financial-aid/graduate/payments-late-charges/

Payment Plan with Northwest University – For those enrolled in the Online Program, a payment plan can be set up for the balance owed after all financial aid has been applied (if applicable). The payment can be divided into three or four equal payments, with the first payment due prior to or at the start of the term. The fee is $50. The owing balance must be paid in full before the start of the next term.

Late Fees

Notification of the owing balance will be sent to the student’s Northwest University email address at the beginning of each month. The statements will show activity on the account for that month only. For the most up to date information, please view the transactions and running balance page located on your Eagle Profile page.

Late fees will be charged approximately 30 days after the start of the term. They will be assessed as follows: For balances between $0.00 and $25.00, the late fee will be zero. For balances $25.01 and over a 1.5% late fee will be assessed monthly on the outstanding balance up to a maximum of $100.

Financial policies apply to all students (except those that qualify for VA benefits under Chapter 31 and 33).  If you qualify for VA benefits under Chapter 31 and 33, late fees will not be assessed due to the late receipt of VA benefits.

 

Past Due Accounts

A student is considered past due:

  • If they have an owing balance after the first day of class
  • If new charges are assessed after the academic term has started and are not paid within 30 days

Student Financial Services will contact by email and/or by telephone, students failing to pay in full by the first day of class or 30 days after new charges are assessed during an academic term. Campus registered mail and Northwest University personnel may also contact the student. Efforts to communicate will be made for a period of approximately 45 days.

If the financial problems persist, the student may be suspended from class until a solution is reached with Student Financial Services. Students failing to respond will be withdrawn from the University by the Provost.

Since financial responsibility is part of the educational process, Student Financial Services encourages students to meet and counsel with the University personnel any time a financial problem arises. Many problems may be avoided and/or resolved with communication.

The University reserves the right to assign delinquent accounts to an agency for collection, which will affect the student’s credit score.

Adding / Dropping Courses

Students may change their registration through adding or dropping courses either via their PowerCAMPUS Self-Service account or by filing a properly completed Request Registration Change Form in the Registrar’s Office. Students who drop a course before it begins or during the Add/Drop period (Week 1) will not be charged tuition for that course. After the end of Week 1, there is no tuition adjustment should a student withdraw. Tuition is charged at the full amount.

Cancellation of Registration

The Registration Cancellation policy applies to all semesters. See the Academic Calendar for the applicable First Day of Class.

Cancellation of Registration – A student who registers for class but decides not to attend must notify the Regis­trar’s Office in writing before the end of business on the last day of the Add/Drop period. Proper notification will cancel the tuition and related charges.

Cancellation after Add/Drop period if any classes were attended – This is considered a withdrawal from the University.

Withdrawal from University

Students may withdraw from the University up through 5:00 PM on the last day of the semester. If a student is absent from all classes for more than two consecutive weeks without notifying the University, the University has the authority to administratively withdraw the student from all courses.

If a student completely withdraws or is administratively dropped from all classes after the add/drop period they will be responsible for the full tuition. However, per federal regulations, financial aid will be adjusted based on the last documented day of attendance. If a refund was received prior to withdrawing from the University, those funds need may need to be repaid, depending on the date of withdrawal. 

Please be aware that if the student withdraws from courses, or is administratively dropped, those courses are considered “attempted” and therefore are included in calculating if satisfactory academic progress requirements were met.

Contact your Advisor and the Registrar right away to document your last day of attendance. If there is not a documented last day of attendance, it may be assumed the withdrawal occurred after 50% of the semester has passed. 

Once the withdrawal has occurred or been determined, financial aid will be reviewed for possible adjustments. Federal funds must be returned to federal programs based on the percent of the term that a student is no longer enrolled. Student Financial Services will determine how much of a student’s aid was “unearned” as defined by the federal regulations, and then return the “unearned” aid in the following order to the programs from which the student received the aid:

  • Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan
  • Federal Direct Subsidized Loan
  • Federal Direct PLUS Loan
  • Federal Pell Grant
  • Other Title IV Programs

Financial Assistance

Northwest University participates in federal grant and loan programs; and state grant programs. If a student is enrolled for less than full-time, their awards may be prorated. New Students must sign and return one copy of the  Northwest University Award Terms and Conditions to Student Financial Services within 30 days of receipt.Students must maintain satisfactory academic progress as outlined in the Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy for financial aid, unless additional requirements are noted with the award.

You will need to provide documentation along with this form, and it takes approximately four weeks to process. Only one special circumstance is processed during your time at Northwest University. Please contact Student Financial Services for the form.

Financial Aid Application

Apply for financial aid at Northwest University by submitting the Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa.

  • have financial need as determined by the results of a processed FAFSA in most cases
  • not owe an overpayment on any Title IV educational grant or be in default on a Title IV educational loan
  • maintain satisfactory academic progress.

Disbursement of Aid

Student financial aid is credited to individual student accounts in equal disbursements by semester. The amount disbursed each semester is indicated on the student’s financial aid offer. Most often, an award is disbursed in two equal payments, half each semester at the beginning of the semester. For example, a $1000 grant will be disbursed $500 for fall semester and $500 for spring semester.

You may appeal the suspension in writing to Student Financial Services. If the appeal is approved, the student will be on Financial Aid Probation and will  have at least  one additional semester to meet the credit completion and GPA expectations.

Verification

Verification is a federal process, which requires Northwest University to check the accuracy of the information you and/or your parents reported when applying for federal financial aid. Information is verified by securing additional documentation. The documents necessary to verify these items are described on your financial aid offer. Corrections to this data will be submitted to the United States Department of Education, if necessary. A revised financial aid offer will be sent that will list any specific actions needed and will reflect changes, if any, to your financial aid award. An award will not be disbursed and federal loans will not be originated until verification is complete. If documents are not submitted within 30 days of request, or one month prior to the end of the semester, the financial aid offer may be cancelled.

The academic services and policies of Northwest University are overseen by the Provost's Office and administered through the academic schools and colleges, and various academic services offices. Their goal is to ensure that students obtain and demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and attitudes described by the academic programs throughout this catalog. These programs balance the high standards established by the University's faculty and its accrediting associations with the high cost of attending an educational institution. The outcome is an educational experience designed to deliver and verify students' mastery of the essential elements expected of University graduates in today's society. This will enable them to fulfill the University's mission of preparing students for service and leadership. Some services may be customized at a specific location or modality.
