Looking for alternatives to traditional classes?

MINI-TERM CLASSES
Mini-terms were developed for students who wish to take courses over an eight-week span, instead of a traditional semester. Students who want to expedite their degree plan to graduate early may take advantage of these courses. Mini-term classes in a variety of academic and career-technical course subjects are available on all campuses as well as online through the college’s eLearning program. Spring 2017 mini-terms will be held Jan. 17-March 2 (first session) and March 20-May 5 (second session).

ONLINE CLASSES
Online courses were developed to increase access to Northwest courses by adults and other students who cannot attend campus-based classes because of work, family responsibilities or distance from campus. The typical student will usually devote around 8 hours per online course per week for both online and distance learning. For more information on online classes and to take a short assessment to find out if online courses are right for you, visit www.northwestms.edu/elearning.
