Reasons for Attending Northwood University
Education for Working Adults
There are several reasons Cerritos students are choosing
Northwood University as their transfer school…
Northwood University students pay Cerritos College tuition during their junior year. Consider what your junior year will cost if you transfer to another local university. As a Northwood student you can save thousands of dollars!
All required courses are taught on campus. This is a benefit to students who like the Cerritos campus and who do not want to fight traffic commuting to another school. As well, students who enjoy taking courses through Cerritos instructors can continue to do so in their junior year.
The Northwood University Cerritos Center program is designed for the adult learner. To meet the needs of our busy students, we also offer online courses through our distance education center in Michigan.
- Prior Learning Assessment
A Prior Learning Assessment determines if past accomplishments qualify you for college credit (previous coursework, training, certificates and/or life experiences will be evaluated). A maximum of 30 semester hours of credit may be awarded.
- Small Classes
Because the Northwood University Cerritos Center programs are accelerated, our classes are taught as seminars. This means that you will have classes with approximately 15 to 20 students and you will have the opportunity to interact extensively with the instructor and with your classmates. We find that this environment is much more conducive to learning.
