Message from the Campus Director
NC Online offers students the flexibility to complete three Associate in Applied Science degrees in an online format, and an additional degree program partially online. Rather than commuting to a physical campus, students are able to log into their courses at times that fit their schedules, not the college’s. Having this flexibility allows our students to maintain their full or part-time jobs, meet their family obligations, and continue with their busy lifestyles, all while earning credits towards completing their associate degree. Individuals in rural areas are also afforded an opportunity to earn a degree when there may be no option of a physical campus nearby their homes.
As a career college, our curriculum is focused to prepare you for that new career in as little as two years. You’ll learn what you need for that career, without a lot of excess, unrelated courses. Check out NC Online’s three associate degree programs that can be completed entirely online — Business Administration, Criminal Justice, and Health Information Technology—and the American Bar Association (ABA) approved paralegal program which is offered partially online.*
Now don’t think that because you would be taking your classes online that you would be missing out on the benefits of a physical campus. NC Online students have all the benefits that Northwestern College has to offer. As an online student you would have your own Career Development Coordinator to assist you with resume writing, interviewing skills, and assisting you in your career search. You would also have full access to Northwestern College faculty and staff in the areas of Academics, Counseling, Financial Aid and Student Services to answer your questions and guide you along the way. As an NC Online student, you would always be connected to the Northwestern College community.
I look forward to having you join our NC Online family and wish you much success in pursuing your educational goals.
Campus Director, NC Online

Why Choose NC Online?
If you are looking for an online experience, you will be glad to know that Northwestern College offers a variety of programs to students interested in pursuing a degree from within the comfort of their own homes. Learning online provides the same valuable education as learning in the classroom, while offering you the convenience of setting your own schedule.
At your convenience, you can attend online lectures, access online resources, and also have personal one-on-one chats with your instructor. NC’s online courses provide a two-way communication between teachers and students. So, although you may be attending a program from within your home, you still get to actively interact with your peers and instructors, giving you a chance to network within our virtual classroom. We also conduct online tests and evaluations regularly so that students can receive helpful feedback on their progress.
