Metro Pathways to NWU

Metropolitan Community College transfer students have a long history of success at Nebraska Wesleyan. NWU and Metro have partnered to give students two pathways to earn a bachelor’s degree. Regardless of the pathway students choose, Metro students will benefit from small classes and personal attention, and experience a smooth transition to a bachelor’s degree at Nebraska Wesleyan University.
