Northwestern International University was one of the first colleges to offer self-directed online programs, which were based on review of prior-earned college credits, professional life-experiences, practical knowledge, research, portfolio work, and the passage of comprehensive examinations *Cite. N.I.U. was a member of the Long Distance Learning Council *Cite. Their admissions process consisted of the initial registration process, student selection, and the review of student work and experience. Students had to show proof of passing content specific exams before being considered for school admission. They were also required to pass comprehensive exams at the completion of their respective program. Furthermore, students were expected to complete a Practicum Learning Portfolio Log. The time-requirement for portfolio hours varied by subject matter. Lastly, students had to successfully complete and present research, before N.I.U. would issue their degree *Cite(Northwestern International University Registration Catalog).
