NORTHWEST MISSOURI STATE UNIVERSITY
As a Northwest Missouri State University student, you will receive a well-rounded education through small classes where the professors know your name. You will experience innovative hands-on learning opportunities, more than 150 student organizations and access to the latest technology through our laptop rental program. Northwest offers 124 programs of study, and an average class size of 27 students allows your professors to provide one-on-one supportive instruction. This means you have the same rigorous academic opportunities you would at a large school, but with more individualized attention and support from faculty who teach full time. At Northwest, learning extends beyond the classroom. Education majors gain real-world experience at the Horace Mann Laboratory School on campus, agriculture majors get their hands dirty on the University Farm, students research alongside growing businesses in the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, and students staff numerous University publications, the campus TV station and two campus radio stations. In addition, about 1,200 student employment positions are available on campus. Students at Northwest are actively involved in campus leadership. More than 70% of
students actively participate in student organizations, and more than 800 students donate their time to volunteering and service learning every year. Involvement isnâ€™t limited to upperclassmen, either. Whether through a student organization, research opportunities, on-campus job, hands-on learning experiences or service learning, students become involved starting their first year.
When Dr. Mark Corson teaches classes such as military geography and principles of humanitarian aid, he speaks with authority on these subjects. Dr. Corson, professor of geosciences and chair of the Department of Natural Sciences, has been deployed three times. In 2011, he returned from serving as the commanding general of the U.S. Army Reserve’s 103rd Expeditionary Sustainment Command. As part of “Operation Responsible Drawdown,” Dr. Corson was charged with overseeing the effort to reduce the number of American troops in Iraq. His unit was responsible for coordinating all sustainment operations in Iraq, which meant providing transportation, maintenance, supplies and services. It was a task Dr. Corson often compared to moving the entire city of St. Joseph halfway around the world, and the command completed the mission 10 days ahead of the federal government’s deadline. “I was really excited to get back to my students and my classes,” Dr. Corson said. “I’m really happy to have the opportunity to use some of the leadership and management lessons that I’ve gleaned from my experience to make a contribution to the Department of Natural Sciences and to the University.” Dr. Corson now performs his military duty by serving as the senior logistics staff officer (wartime) for U.S. Forces Korea. In the event of a crisis, he will deploy to Korea to ensure U.S. and allied forces have what they need to defend the Republic of Korea and maintain peace in the region. Dr. Corson says this new focus on East Asia is exciting and that he looks forward to bringing new lessons and knowledge back to Northwest based on his service with U.S. Forces Korea.
Dr. Shelley Riley obtained a B.S. in chemistry from Northwest and a Ph.D. in pharmaceutical chemistry from the University of Kansas. Before rejoining Northwest as a faculty member, Dr. Riley worked for more than 15 years in pharmaceutical research and development, reaching the position of director of pharmaceutics at Amgen. She is currently an assistant professor in the Department of Natural Sciences and teaches classes in the chemistry and nanoscale science programs. Dr. Riley serves as the co-sponsor of Student Affiliates of the American Chemical Society and does research in the solid state characterization of pharmaceuticals and formulation of nanosuspensions for oral drug delivery. Additionally, she is vice president and co-founder of Riley and Rabel Consulting Services LLC. Her experience in the pharmaceutical industry was gained through positions at The DuPont Pharmaceutical Company, ALZA Corporation (a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson), and Amgen. Dr. Riley has 21 publications, 21 presentations and three patents to her name. “I feel that students benefit from my pharmaceutical research experience, which allows them to translate what they learn in the classroom and laboratory to real-world applications and career opportunities in the natural sciences,” said Dr. Riley. “When I was a student at Northwest, there were several faculty mentors who played a huge role in influencing my academic and professional career paths. I take great pride and find it rewarding that I am in a position to do the same for our students.”
MEET YOUR MENT OR
Dr. Carol Spradling is a strong proponent of teamwork and interdisciplinary education. Dr. Spradling, associate professor of mathematics, computer science and information systems, was Northwest’s 2012 Governor’s Award winner for Excellence in Education. Her commitment as one of the faculty advisors of Knacktive — Northwest’s student-led, interdisciplinary, strategic communications agency — was one of the reasons she was selected. Another was her service as co-chair of the first Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska and Kansas Women in Computing conference which encouraged women to enter and remain in computing occupations. Dr. Spradling credits colleagues and mentors who have helped her hone her teaching techniques. “You really have to vary the kind of materials and experiences that you provide for students,” Dr. Spradling said. “There are so many people on campus who are good at doing that, and I really think that makes a big difference with how successful students are in the classroom.”
Dr. Ben Blackford has a passion for entrepreneurship, strategy and marketing. In April 2012, Dr. Blackford, assistant professor of management, helped develop Northwest’s first entrepreneurship conference. The conference gave students practice developing business plans and presenting to panels of judges made up of respected entrepreneurs and business professionals, with the winners receiving scholarships. “The inspiration was to provide another opportunity for students to gain real-world experience in an important aspect of entrepreneurship and small business,” Dr. Blackford said. Opportunities to apply topics from the classroom occur in other courses as well. Students in Dr. Blackford’s negotiations course have the opportunity to participate in negotiation simulations, taking the role of unions and management from professional sports to the automotive industry in collective bargaining. While studying strategy, students become top management of a simulated shoe company and make multiple decisions regarding their business while competing with other members of the class and students across the world.

HORACE MANN LABORATORY SCHOOL AND LEET CENTER FOR CHILDREN AND FAMILY Our education majors get hands-on, practical classroom experience within the laboratory school, giving them an edge on education graduates from other schools. Children at Horace Mann Laboratory School, as well as Northwest students training to be teachers, experienced nature firsthand thanks to a grant from the Missouri Department of Conservation. Lauren Gobet, elementary education major, was one such teacher-in-training. Gobet gained experience by planning lessons about organisms, populations and ecosystems, while incorporating songs and activities into the lessons.
“It definitely shows us a different way to teach science. It’s something for us to look forward to when we are teachers and we can write this grant for our classrooms.” Lauren Gobet
HANDS-ON AGRICULTURE EXPERIENCE Agriculture students gain experience at the campus orchard, campus/community garden, campus agronomy plots and the University Farm. Four Northwest students got an inside look at one farm’s operations and brought home honors for the findings and recommendations they presented to a panel of dairy experts. Jessica Murphy, an agriculture education major, was on the third-place team in the Midwest Regional Dairy Challenge. The challenge allows students to apply their learning as they review all facets of a working dairy business.
“I know my practices and what I do when I’m on my farm, but I don’t know what other people do, especially with a large capacity of 400 cattle.” Jessica Murphy
Bearcat Productions Bearcat Productions is a semi-independent production company that handles video project requests from a variety of businesses and organizations, including Heartland Health Systems in St. Joseph, Kawasaki Manufacturing and the American Red Cross. STUDENT PUBLICATIONS
BROADCASTING KZLX KZLX is a campus and community radio station operated for and by students. KXCV/KRNW Students have the opportunity to work at National Public Radio affiliate KXCV/KRNW. The 100,000-watt station broadcasts in a 100-mile radius of Maryville and has a mix of programming, including NPR news, local news, sports, weather, classical/jazz music, talk shows and American music. KNWT TV KNWT is Northwest’s cable television station that gives students the opportunity to produce weekly newscasts, sports shows, music video shows and game shows.
KNACKTIVE, AN INTERDISCIPLINARY AGENCY EXPERIENCE Knacktive is an integrated, interactive marketing communications agency. Students are separated into competing teams to create an integrated campaign, including: market research, consumer and situational analysis, creative strategies, budgeting, product planning, channels of distribution, pricing, collateral, promotions and public relations tactic development. Each team’s work is integrated into a comprehensive campaign and presented in a formal pitch to a real-world client. For Ian Stanek (above), recent recipient of a bachelor’s degree in interactive digital media (IDM) with a computer science emphasis, his diverse experiences at Northwest helped him land a career with Cerner Corporation.
Northwest students publish award-winning student publications, including The Northwest Missourian, the campus weekly newspaper; Tower yearbook; Framework Interactive online art and entertainment magazine; and On The Edge in Multimedia, a DVD yearbook. Trey Williams (left), journalism major, started writing for The Northwest Missourian in the second trimester of his freshman year. He was promoted to news editor and then to editor in chief thanks to his hard work.
“I’m glad to have had the opportunity to further my writing and reporting skills while working at The Northwest Missourian. Other skills I’ve developed are basic design, how a newspaper is produced and leadership.”
THE CEN TER FOR INNOVA TION AN D ENTREPR ENEURS HIP (CIE) The CIE is a bu siness incuba tor, with tenants in fields rangin g from nanoscience, health, recycl ing/ sustainability, cloud computin g and marketing. Th e CIE provides state-ofthe-art equipm ent for use by students, faculty and te nants.
Stanek was part of the Knacktive agency, serving as an IDM director for one of the four Knacktive teams, Confido. Knacktive team members built a comprehensive marketing campaign for Science City, and Confido’s proposal was declared the winner.
“In Knacktive, you have to work on a team, and if you’re not talking to each other, nothing’s going to get done. It’s a huge lesson in communication, which a lot of companies are looking for. They’re not hiring just on what you have for skills, although that’s important, but they want to know: Can you talk to people? Can you pick up the phone and talk to someone? Are you clear in your emails? Are you willing to get up from your desk, walk over to someone and talk to them about something? Are you able to articulate a problem? You have to have strong communication skills.” 7 Ian Stanek
MAKE THE TRANSITION Transferring to Northwest Missouri State University is a simple process. Listed below are the basics you need to know. GETTING ACCEPTED For admission acceptance, you must have a minimum 2.00 cumulative transfer GPA. If your GPA is lower, your application may be reviewed for probationary admission. Beyond demonstrated academic competence, we may look for other qualities such as motivation, strong academic potential, dedication to learning, integrity and leadership. Ask the Office of Admissions for details. GPA Northwest operates on a flat 4.00 scale â€“ no pluses or minuses. Therefore, if youâ€™re transferring from an institution that uses pluses and minuses, your GPA could be different here. Once you are a student at Northwest, grades from your previous institution will be factored into your cumulative GPA.
FRESHMAN TRANSFERS If you have fewer than 24 credit hours to transfer, your application will be considered based on your high school and college academic records. You will need to have your official high school transcript and ACT or SAT scores sent to Northwest. TRANSFERRING CREDIT Northwest will accept transfer credit from a regionally accredited institution on the following conditions: 1. The course is not developmental or remedial in nature 2. The course is not designed for vocational/ technical credit (unless pursuing a Bachelor of Technology degree; see page 11) Not all courses will have direct equivalents so they may be transferred as elective credit. For more information go to www.nwmissouri.edu/ admissions/transfer/equivalencies.htm.
ASSOCIATE DEGREES An Associate of Arts degree from a regionally accredited institution in Missouri or with which Northwest has a general education articulation agreement will waive Northwestâ€™s general education requirements. Other associate degrees will be evaluated on a course-by-course basis. Ask the Office of Admissions if your situation is applicable. If you are transferring without an Associate of Arts degree, your transcript will be evaluated on a course-by-course basis. GENERAL EDUCATION BLOCK Northwest will accept in transfer a successfully completed 42 semester-hour block of general education courses taken at a public institution of higher education in the state of Missouri to waive your general education requirements. These courses need to be designated by the sending institution as fulfilling the requirements of the statewide goals associated with specific skill and
knowledge areas. Go to www.nwmissouri.edu/ advisementassistance/pdf/gened.pdf to check out Northwestâ€™s general education requirements. DIRECTED GEN EDS Certain degree programs (education and business, for example) may have special requirements that cause exceptions to general transfer policies. Check with the Office of Admissions regarding your situation. TRANSFER OF LOWER-DIVISION CREDITS BEYOND THE TWO-YEAR DEGREE Students may choose to continue coursework at a two-year school after they have completed a twoyear degree and/or 64 credit hours of lower-division credit. These additional lower-division requirements may be used to meet the lower-division prerequisites and/or lower-division graduation requirements established by a baccalaureate institution.
For a step-by-step guide to transferring to Northwest, visit www.nwmissouri.edu/admissions/transfer/guide.htm.
S ALL IN THE DETAIL ARTICULATION AGREEMENTS Northwest has several articulation agreements with other colleges that define how courses will transfer. Visit Northwest’s website to view a list at www.nwmissouri.edu/admissions/transfer/ equivalencies.htm. PREREGISTRATION AND ORIENTATION A preregistration and orientation program has been designed specifically for transfer students prior to the start of all sessions. You will have the opportunity to meet with an advisor, register and become acquainted with Northwest. You will receive an invitation in the mail and must sign up to attend. If you are unable to attend a scheduled registration date, you will register for classes during General Registration just prior to the start of the trimester. HOUSING As a transfer student, you have options for living arrangements. Residence halls offer a chance to get to know your classmates. Tower Suites, Forest Village Apartments, South Complex and some floors of Franken Hall have been designated upperclassman, co-ed living facilities. Programming is directed toward the needs of older students. Residence halls are air-conditioned and give residents easy access to outdoor basketball courts, tennis courts and intramural fields as well as the University convenience store. Off-campus housing also is available in Maryville. Visit www.nwmissouri.edu/admissions/transfer/ housing.htm for a partial listing of off-campus housing options.
THIS IS THE ‘VILLE Safe, friendly and relaxed. Maryville is a college town bursting with Bearcat pride, and there is always something to do. ■■ There are a variety of restaurants, from fast food to family dining. ■■ The movie theater in a replicated airplane hangar is a must see, plus there’s a bowling alley and lots of outdoor activities at Mozingo Lake, including a public 18-hole championship golf course and campgrounds. ■■ Maryville is ideally located, and is an easy drive to Kansas City, Omaha and Des Moines. CAMPUS SAFETY Northwest takes student safety seriously. Our University Police Department employs 11 statecommissioned police officers and is staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The University is served by a 911 emergency phone management system, meaning that all 911 calls made from campus landline telephones go directly through the University Police dispatch center. Northwest has an innovative indoor/outdoor public address and siren system that broadcasts emergency communication. Bearcat Alert is an optout text messaging system that sends emergency communication to cell phones prior to, during and/or after an emergency incident. www.nwmissouri.edu/police
CREDIT BY EXAM Northwest accepts College Board Advanced Placement (AP) Tests, College Level Examinations Program (CLEP) examinations and International Baccalaureate examinations. The CLEP may be taken on the Northwest campus or at other institutional testing centers. Students may not receive credit for any of these exams in subject areas already enrolled in at the college level or in which college credit has already been granted. In order to receive credit, students must supply the Office of Admissions with original score reports from the testing agency and meet minimum score standards as listed in the Northwest catalog or online at www.nwmissouri.edu/admissions/ academics/dualcredit.htm. CORRESPONDENCE STUDY Northwest does not offer correspondence courses. However, college-level courses taken by correspondence from accredited institutions are acceptable for transfer at the undergraduate level. Northwest offers online courses, which students find convenient if they need more flexibility.
BACHELOR OF TECHNOLOGY This degree is designed for students who have completed a one- or two-year vocational or technical certificate or a technically focused Associate of Applied Science (AAS) or Associate of Science (AS) degree, but have now set their sights on a bachelorâ€™s degree. The curriculum leading to the Bachelor of Technology degree is individually developed for each candidate and provides for the transfer of non-college-parallel vocational or technical coursework from a regionally accredited college. Most students in this program have majors in agriculture or business, but there are many options including child and family studies and computer science. Contact the Office of Admissions for more details. ONLINE DEGREE COMPLETION PROGRAMS The Bachelor of Science degrees in business management and marketing can be completed online through Northwest or through a combination of online and traditional campus-based classes. Northwest has entered into several articulation agreements with community colleges in Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, Iowa, Nebraska and Oklahoma to clarify transfer policies and procedures that assure articulation between programs. The institutions involved seek to assist students in making a seamless transfer from the associate degree to the baccalaureate degree. Northwest accepts up to 84 credit hours in transfer for these online degrees. Visit Northwest Online at www.northwestonline. org or call 800.633.1175.
