COVID-19 Information

To help safeguard the health and welfare of our students and the college community, NWACC has suspended in-person classes from March 16th - April 10th. Classes will be offered online or through alternative methods. Instructors will be contacting students through Canvas and NWACC email regarding their courses. Please stay updated by monitoring your NWACC email and visiting the link below. We appreciate your understanding during this time.


The new NWACC-Washington County, located in Springdale (west of Arvest Ballpark), has made the pursuit of higher education even more convenient. With many of the same student services available as those at NWACC-Benton County, the new facility is a great option for those who don't want to compromise quality service for convenience. 

NWACC-Washington County
offers courses in
 general education, nursing, health information management, and emergency medical response and houses NWACC’s High School Relations which oversees the Early College Experience program. Keep in mind, specific degree plans and/or selected courses of study will determine the attendance location of some classes. You may be required to come to the Bentonville campus.

Many of the services that students rely upon at NWACC-Benton County can be found at the Washington County location. Enrollment services include: admissions assistance, academic advising, financial aid and treasurer services, as well as student IDs and parking hang tags. Other services include: tutoring, reading and writing centers, veteran and disability resources, career, counseling and tranfer services, as well as library resources. 

The new facility is located at 
6101 Watkins Ave, Springdale, AR  72762

Please note: The new NWACC-Washington County now houses the courses and services that were offered at the college's previous locations - Washington County, Farmington and Jones Center locations. 

Funding the new facility: 
The NWACC Foundation launched the NWACC Now!, an organized capital campaign, to raise $12 million to construct the new 38,000 square foot NWACC - Washington County. Growing the college's presence in Northwest Arkansas allows NWACC to continually meet the needs of the community and future generations of students. With the campaign nearing $6 million raised, every dollar makes a difference. Learn more about donating to the NWACC Now! campaign.
