NNU has been transforming students since 1913.

Expanding online outreach

For the first time, students have another way to become part of the NNU community—one that is more flexible and accessible than NNU has ever been able to offer before. This fall marked the launch of NNU’s first fully online bachelor’s degree for traditional students.

A growing and vital university

Fall of 2014 brings exciting change to NNU and not just to the physical campus. In addition to the seasonal excitement of welcoming a new class of freshmen, transfer students, and adult and graduate students, NNU is introducing its first fully online bachelor’s degree program for the traditionally aged undergraduate student.

The value of relationships

Why do people attend college? To learn a skill, to prepare for a vocation, to increase their lifetime earning potential? These are all good aims, but the educational mission at Northwest Nazarene University addresses life goals so much broader than what one eventually does for a living. 2014 graduates agree that their greatest growth happens in community.
