First-time College Student

Applying to Northwest College is free and nonbinding, so it can be your first step in connecting with NWC.

It's quick and easy to do online. Complete your application and send in your transcripts (Step 2) as soon as possible to get things started.

Step 3: Submit Your Test Scores

If you haven't tested yet, enter the appropriate code below when you take the test to have your scores automatically sent to NWC:

  • SAT code: 4542

Step 4: Submit these 3 documents

  1. Student Health Form

The Student Health Form and Student Advisement forms will be mailed to you in your applicaton packet. Be sure to fill them out and return them. They are used to help your academic advisor understand your individual needs and to make sure you get the best-informed medical treatment, if needed, as a student.
