We are not saying that a degree from NTS will mean more income. In fact we do not recommend our degrees for use in secular employment career advancement. The goal of Northwestern is to educate our students so that they will be effective in Ministry related Christian service. The rewards of ministering to the needs of others should far out weigh any desire for financial accomplishment in life. Your character will be judged by what you do for the good of others, not by how much wealth you accumulate.
It is possible to complete all requirements and receive your Bachelor-Master's-Doctorate Degrees in a very reasonable amount of time, depending on how much educational experience you may already have as well as other learning experience and information that you are able to provide when you complete your prior life credit evaluation paperwork. Because your time schedule is not limited by forced class attendance at Northwestern, the pace at which you complete your course requirements will be determined by you. This is a great advantage; because you dictate your own study schedule, you can accelerate the accomplishment of your degree programs. A fully qualified candidate could qualify for multiple degrees within just a few years as compared to many years through a traditional college or university degree program. The NTS- AADP accelerated degree programs allow pre-qualified students to complete a Master or Doctorate degree in just *12 weeks to 1-year. *Contingent on prior educational experience as supported by transcripts.

Your transcripts will be on file at Northwestern and copies of such transcripts can be mailed to any organization that makes a request to verify a student’s education. Transcripts will not be mailed to a requesting organization unless authorized, in writing by the alumnus.
Because our students enroll online from all over the world and because our students complete their degree program requirements on an open enrollment format, it is not required that students attend our graduation ceremonies. However, NTS does have an annual graduation ceremony at our Mt. Dora, Florida physical campus location. Students from around the world would be welcome to come to this annual graduation celebration.
