Dean - Business & Public Services

College Overview

NSCC is a public two-year college that is regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. This accreditation allows the College to offer degree and certificate programs in the fields of arts & sciences; business & public services; nursing & allied health; science, technology, engineering technologies, mathematics (STEM) and industrial technologies.

The College also offers non-credit classes on over 300 subjects. These courses are offered through Custom Training Solutions, a division of NSCC.


Northwest State Community College was founded when the Ohio Board of Regents approved the formation of Four County Technical Institute in 1968. The College offered its first classes one year later. In 1972, the College moved to its current location and was renamed Northwest Technical College.

In 1994, Northwest State officially became a community college. This enabled the College to offer Associate of Arts and Associate of Science programs that could easily transfer into a four-year degree program at partnering colleges.

Since that time, the Northwest State campus has continued to grow. Today, the College offers classes at the main campus in Archbold, Ohio, as well as various satellite locations.

Many programs have the option for state licensure or certification. The Law Enforcement Academy qualifies graduates to become certified by the Ohio Peace Officer Training Commission. Graduates of the Human Services program can become Registered Social Work Assistants (RSW) in the state of Ohio. The Education programs offer students the option for licensure by the Ohio Department of Education as Pre-Kindergarten or Paraprofessional Educators.

NSCC offers a variety of business programs that provide the skills needed to help students who are seeking a new and rewarding career in business. These programs also benefit students who are interested in advancing their current careers. Many of our business associate degrees have a two-plus-two option. This means that students can earn the first two years of a bachelor’s degree at Northwest State and transfer seamlessly into their junior year at a four-year college or university.

Northwest State Community College business programs are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). Information about ACBSP and the importance of accreditation may be found at www.acbsp.org.
