Northwestern gained some bragging rights this semester for its continued affordability, quality programs and beauty of the campus. Links to two articles are below, but in a nutshell, Affordable Colleges Online said Northwestern is among the top 50 in the nation with its Bachelor of Science in Accounting online degree program. No other Oklahoma school earned a ranking on this list, and Northwestern’s program came in at 31. It also lists Northwestern as sixth out of 17 Oklahoma colleges it ranked in the category of Most Affordable Online Colleges in Oklahoma. Besides the Bachelor of Science in Accounting degree, Northwestern offers online bachelor’s degrees in business administration, applied arts and sciences in technical management and an RN-to-BSN program in nursing.
Northwestern also has been ranked fourth on a list of the top 30 Most Attractive Yet Affordable College Campuses across the nation compiled by AffordableSchools.net, and continues to be ranked among the region’s leading universities by “U.S. News & World Report” as having the nation’s most affordable on-campus living, and as a best value institution.

Northwestern also learned great news in August from the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association. After a successful campus visit by the peer reviewers in April, the university was notified that its national institutional accreditation will be continued for another 10 years.
And speaking of great news, in July Northwestern learned that it had successfully completed candidacy year two in the NCAA Division II and was granted provisional membership on Aug. 1. The provisional year is the last of the three-step Division II membership process. The provisional year will focus on Northwestern’s compliance program and its policies and procedures for following NCAA rules. Ride, Rangers, Ride!
