Northwestern College is celebrating 110 years of educating Chicago! The College has seen many changes through the years including a name change, different campus locations, and new degree and certificate programs. However, one thing has always been consistent – seeking to uphold our mission in order to encourage, prepare, and empower the student body.
Faculty members are dedicated professionals selected for their experience in their respective fields as well as their academic qualifications. They are committed to helping students learn and succeed both in and out of the classroom. Gain knowledge from practicing attorneys, certified public accountants, business managers, entrepreneurs, and medical personnel depending on your program of study. Many of our courses also implement hands-on experience allowing you to practice what you will be doing when you are out working in your chosen field.
Northwestern College makes every effort to see that our students are successful. We offer free professional and peer tutoring in a variety of subjects; academic advisors are available to help you select the right courses; career advisors help you with resume writing and finding employment; counselors provide accommodations for students with documented disabilities; and individual and group counseling services are available to all NC students. Many other services are available to assist you in preparing for a successful future.
Our three campuses are conveniently located around the Chicagoland area and offer plenty of free parking. We even offer online programs and classes which you can access from anywhere. You set the pace for your own education, choosing courses that fit with your schedule – whether it be during the day, evening, or weekend.
Northwestern College has more programmatic accreditations and approvals than any other similar private, two-year college in Illinois. In addition to being accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and a member of the North Central Association of Colleges (www.ncahlc.org), we strive to meet the criteria established by specific boards that approve individual programs of study. As a result, our students benefit from the most up-to-date curricula that have been reviewed by industry professionals.
