Staff in the registrar’s office coordinate the academic program at Northwestern College, from determining course credits and degree requirements to setting the final exam schedule and overseeing commencement. Course schedules are also determined by the registrar’s office, which offers convenient online registration to both current and incoming students.


Many of the registrar’s services are available to current students through their MyNWC accounts. MyNWC enables students to access their grades and check progress toward graduation through an automated degree tracking audit. Students also can review academic records, course catalog information and academic program information.

Transcript services

The registrar’s office staff evaluates transcripts from other institutions for both current and prospective students. They also send transcripts to other colleges or employers in response to written requests; this service is free to current students and Northwestern graduates.
