Reflections of Northwest
2016 National Champions
Bearcats Connect
Over the last five years, our tuition increases have been among the lowest in the country — and we’re one of the most affordable public universities in Missouri!
Northwest’s goal is to make higher
education accessible
to all students, and aid awards
are based on both need and academic achievement.
Northwest’s Career Services office will assist you in selecting a major, finding an internship and landing full-time employment after graduation.
Career Services arranges on-campus interviews
and information sessions. Employers can share their
job and internship positions with students and
by posting to Hire a Bearcat.

At Northwest, there are more than 150 organizations available to students and more than 83 percent of Bearcats are involved in one or more groups.
We truly have a family atmosphere at all
athletic events, and the community buys
into the family mindset.”
