Northwest University-Salem Campus was formed in 2008 through a merger between Salem Bible College (established 1988) and Northwest University (Kirkland, WA; established in 1934). The university is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (regional) and is also a member of the Council of Christian Colleges and Universities.
In-state and out-of-state residents pay the same tuition at NU-Salem, easing the burden of the educational investment for non-Oregon residents.
Federal financial aid is available for eligible students. Opportunities can include government aid through FAFSA, veteran (GI) benefits, and more.
Located just north of Salem, the campus is conveniently located to Greater Portland, the entire Willamette Valley, and is only 1.5 miles from I-5 at exit 263.
The Salem Campus is a Christian university that exists to train pastors, missionaries, and those who will serve in Christian organizations. We currently offer two undergraduate degrees: Associate in Christian Leadership and a Bachelor of Science in Christian Leadership. In addition, we offer a Master of Arts in Missional Leadership. NU-Salem has a non-traditional schedule, with classes scheduled on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. The master's degree follows the cohort model and incorporates 4-day intensives.
Our academic courses are engaging, rigorous, and are designed to help you integrate faith, learning, and everyday life. Because of our smaller class sizes, you won't become lost in an anonymous sea of faces. Instead, you'll find a learning experience that can only come from a more personal approach to academics, one that will prepare you to serve with effectiveness and lead with distinction.
Over 300,000 people reside in Marion County (where Salem is located). The Salem Campus is centrally located to a variety of entertainment, recreation, employment, and church/ministry opportunities. Located less than 40 miles from downtown Portland, Oregon's largest city, provides the Salem Campus with the benefits of metro area. It's less than 70 miles to the Pacific Ocean beaches at Lincoln City and 80 miles to skiing on Mount Hood.
One of the most common comments made by current and former students is how the campus has such a strong "family" feeling. Relationships are formed that not only enhance the college experience they continue long past graduation.
