Disability Services

It is the policy of Northwest Nazarene University (NNU) that no qualified persons with disabilities shall, on the basis of disability, be excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or otherwise be subjected to discrimination under any of its programs or activities. Any qualified student who has a physical or mental impairment which substantially limits one or more of major life activities--such as walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning and/or working--can receive assistance at NNU as provided in Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the applicable provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and the ADA Amendment Acts of 2008. The Director of CASA serves as the campus contact for disability-related needs. 


The Testing Office supports the educational mission of NNU by providing high-quality testing services in accordance with the National College Testing Association Professional Standards and Guidelines and governmental regulations. The services provided for students, faculty, staff, community members and business partners will be consistently rendered with an attitude of service that demonstrates value for relationships, personal excellence, diversity, and commitment to lifelong learning. Tests/services include proctoring for distance learning courses; residual ACT testing; CLEP, DSST, and placement testing.
