College Core

About

College Core at Northwest Nazarene University provides an accelerated learning platform for adults students (age 23 +) desiring to earn a degree or those who are seeking degree completion can do so through this rigorous accelerated program. College Core provides the General Education requirements that allow the adult student to major in one of six degree areas: Business, Elementary Education, Special Education, Christian Ministries, Applied Studies, or Liberal Arts. Future degree options are pending. Classes are delivered online, and are offered in five, seven and eight week sessions. Financial aid is available to qualified adults. This flexible program allows adult students who have regular jobs and family obligations to complete a degree in a timely fashion so as to improve their lives through advancement in their occupations as well as the added value a liberal arts education provides.
