Northwood Tech has a simple three-step admissions process you can complete in one visit.

Preparation is key. You'll want to take the time to research your career area of choice, what program is the best fit for you and gather all of your documents. If you need to take the ACCUPLACER placement assessment, you'll also want to make sure you brush-up on the skills you'll need to do well. Online resources and the Academic Support Center instructors are available to help you with that. In your final step, the counselor will meet with you to walk through your goals and help you foresee and overcome any obstacles to your success.

Support for Your Success 

Support for success, Friendly atmosphere

Northwood Tech wants you to succeed. After making the transfer from a large university to Northwood Tech or watching stereotypical college life on TV, students are often surprised by how much effort instructors and staff make to get to know them and take into account their individual needs. At Northwood Tech, you won't find a lecture hall of 300, or even 100, students. It simply doesn't exist. Class sizes are small, so you won't be forgotten.

Students here come from all walks of life, from someone straight out of high school, to those switching careers later in life. You'll find a friendly, accepting atmosphere, where students learn from instructors and each other through their varying viewpoints and experience that make classroom discussions richer and more fulfilling.
