Welcome to NSU’s Military Education Headquarters!

Proud of its military friendly history, Northwestern State University wants to meet your educational needs as a military member. Northwestern has been named as a Military Friendly School for 2010 by G.I. Jobs Magazine, placing NSU in the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools nationwide for support programs.  NSU has also been recognized by Military Advanced Education as a Top Military Friendly University, as well as by CAEL as an Adult Learning Focused Institution. 

NSU welcomes adult learners. You may apply college level life, work and military experiences toward your degree through our Prior Learning Assessment process. You may also use previously earned college credit, transfer credit from other training or educational pursuits, and take challenge tests to earn academic credit toward a baccalaureate degree. 

You can earn a degree from NSU entirely online, in an accelerated or regular format, or in the traditional classroom. There are many available programs and minor concentrations to match your interests and background. The online format provides flexibility and convenience and enables the adult student to continue working while completing a degree.

Founded in 1884 and located in historic Natchitoches, La., Northwestern State University is accredited through the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and is noted for academic excellence—and service to students. We stand ready to serve you and salute your service in the U.S. military forces.
