Getting Started at NWACC

Becoming a student at NWACC is easy!

Online students go through the same process as traditional on-campus students:

1. Admission:  Students interesting in taking online classes must first be admitted to the college. A student's enrollment steps are based on his/her student type. Go to Enrollment Checklist for more information, or Apply to NWACC to get started.

2. Talk to an Advisor:  Once you have completed the Next Steps portion of your Enrollment Checklist, we encourage you to speak to an academic advisor. First-time college students will speak to an academic advisor during their required orientation. NWACC advisors are equipped to help you determine the best path to your goals. Our Academic Advising Center provides the overall umbrella for student advising, but many departments and programs also have their own advisors to assist you. Head over to Advisor and Coordinator to find your specific contact.

3. Sign up for Classes:  Once you are admitted to the college and receive your username and password, you will be able to access the online registration system. Online classes use the same terms and registration schedule as on-campus classes and are listed together with traditional face-to-face and hybrid classes on the course schedule. You can search for classes using the Dynamic Schedule.
