The essential mission of Northwest Nazarene University is the development of Christian character within the philosophy and framework of genuine scholarship. NNU is a community of both developing scholars and growing Christians. Thus, each new student is encouraged to recognize the privileges available to participate in a community committed to Christian scholarship. Behavioral expectations emerge because of the unique nature of this community.
All students are expected to live by the lifestyle guidelines as stated in the Student Handbook, which are based on the University’s relationship to the Church of the Nazarene and the directives and guidelines established by it.
New students will receive a copy of the current Lifestyle Guidelines prior to their enrollment. The student is expected to read these policies. The signature on the student application is an agreement to comply with the lifestyle guidelines of the university. It is to be understood that the signed application will be considered valid and remain binding throughout the period a student is enrolled at NNU. Any changes in campus policy from year to year will be identified in the revised Student Handbook online. All students are responsible to follow said policies. A copy of the Student Handbook is available on the web at www.nnu.edu/studenthandbook.
Any prospective student who feels he or she needs clarification of the printed regulations will have opportunity to discuss the matter with the Office of Student Development either prior to or at the time of registration.
In addition to the provisions of termination for misconduct, the University reserves the right, at the end of the academic semester, to deny re-enrollment or the right to access campus housing to any student when such action, approved by the President, is deemed to be in the best interest of the University or the student.
