NWF Online Quick Facts

Online Campus Quick Start Guide


NWF Online Campus combines affordability and accessibility, providing students with engaging courses taught by dedicated faculty who are subject-matter experts in their fields and certified to teach online.

Each year NWF’s Online Campus offers more than 180 online courses, providing over 100 sections to choose from each semester. All NWF classes provide students in an online classroom with the same tools and resources that help students in traditional classrooms succeed.


NWF online courses may be taken individually for personal enrichment or professional development, or may be completed for credit toward one of our 18 fully-online degrees and certificates.

Online courses, which are offered in full 16-week terms and 8-week “mini-semester” terms, provide students with greater access to courses necessary to complete their program of study on time. NWF currently offers as many as 18 programs available fully online.

Hybrid courses are supplemented with online instruction and resources to allow for reduced seat time, combining the best of NWF’s traditional classrooms with the greater flexibility of the online learning environment.

Students with questions about accessing their online courses should contact the NWF State College Online Campus at [email protected]. Please note that Blackboard works best in Google Chrome.
