Northwest Missouri State and Metropolitan Community College have a long history of helping students get where they want to go in life.
Northwest Missouri State University – Kansas City
Originally established in 1905, Northwest Missouri State University is a state-assisted, four-year regional university that also offers graduate degree programs.
Northwest-Kansas City is a state-of-the-art facility that offers students the opportunity to complete a degree program or advance their education through one of the graduate programs. For students transferring to Northwest-Kansas City, the transition is seamless, and the small class size offers increased opportunities for one-on-one attention from faculty who are interested in ensuring the success of each student.
Metropolitan Community College
