Center for Online and Extended Education programs serve online and extension site students, offering academic programs in nontraditional hours and formats that enable working professionals to remain in their career while fulfilling their educational goals. The Program also serves other students by coordinating several nontraditional educational service programs, such as Prior Learning Assessment.

The Center for Online and Extended Education (COEE) is located at 5520 108th Ave NE (located in the Davis Building on the main part of the campus). COEE delivers online courses through the NU Online program. In addition, the Center facilitates the Northwest Partnership Program which partners with internship programs throughout the country. COEE also serves students in many Christian high schools enabling students to earn college credits that satisfy the requirements of both their high school towards graduation and college degree.

The Center for Online and Extended Education partners with the other Northwest University colleges to offer the following majors:

  • Certificate – Ministry Leadership
  • Associate – Associate in Arts, Associate in Ministry Leadership
  • Bachelor – Business Management, Interdisciplinary Studies, Ministry Leadership, Organizational Leadership, and Psychology

Northwest University students are able to obtain credit for prior learning through several methods, all facilitated by the Office of the Provost and the Center for Online and Extended Education. Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) covers credit earned via Certified Prior Learning as approved by the American Council on Education or the University, or submission of a Portfolio as outlined in the Prior Learning Assessment Guide.
