Northwest Success 360

NW Success 360, powered by Civitas Learning, is the official academic advising and student success platform at Northwest Missouri State University. The comprehensive student success system implementation is ongoing throughout the 2021-2022 academic year. The system is an “analytically-driven holistic advising technology that provides intelligence, collaboration, and engagement capabilities” for faculty and staff and “allows for data-informed opportunities to proactively address changing student needs.” NW Success 360 is a primary hub for students to connect with their advisor, faculty, and other success team personnel by scheduling appointments, reviewing course history, and connecting to campus resources.

Northwest students and faculty/staff may access the system from the Bearcat login page or through Northwest Online.
