 About Us:


Northwest is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. Northwest has been an AQIP institution since 2005, and served as a pilot institution in the development of AQIP in the late 1990s.

Northwest has a tradition of continuous improvement and was accepted as an HLC AQIP institution in 2005. AQIP institutions earn reaccreditation not only by demonstrating how they meet HLC¹s standards and expectations, but also by focusing on the continuous improvements of its systems and processes. As described on AQIP's website, "With AQIP, an institution demonstrates it meets accreditation standards and expectations through sequences of events that align with those ongoing activities that characterize organizations striving to improve their performance."
