    School Overview

    The University of Northwestern in St. Paul is a Christian, private, not-for-profit, four-year institution of higher education nestled in the town of Roseville, a suburb of the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota. The school was founded in 1902 as Northwestern Bible and Missionary Training School by a pastor and evangelist named Bell Riley. Reverend Billy Graham was the second president of the school, which helped the institution gain national attention until it closed in 1966 for restructuring and relocating. When the school reopened in 1972, it began to grow from Northwestern College into the University of Northwestern - St. Paul that it is today.


    The University of Northwestern - St. Paul offers associate's, bachelor’s, and master's degrees and undergraduate and graduate certificates. The university also offers online programs including degrees and certificates at all levels.
