Admissions Philosophy

The Office of Admissions’ philosophy is to serve anyone seeking educational opportunities at NorthWest Arkansas Community College.  However, the college recognizes that an optimum balance between accessibility and quality standards must be maintained.
The typical student population seeking admission to a community college presents a wide range of aspirations, levels of motivation, and capabilities.  In order to attain the desired balance between accessibility and quality standards, procedures are needed to constructively address this diversity.  Each student's educational goal, previous academic experience, and placement test scores will be evaluated and will serve as the basis for development of their educational plan.  Some students seeking admission will be under prepared in certain subject areas and will require developmental courses prior to attempting college-level work.
