What is Parent WebAdvisor?
As a parent, you may need access to view your student’s academic and financial information. If your child grants you access (instructions on the
other side), you will be able to review your student's bill/account and make payments, financial aid status, award letter, class schedule, final grades,
and view an unofficial transcript.
What is Northwood NOW!?
Northwood University adapted an emergency notification system, known as Northwood NOW!, as an additional communication tool for students,
faculty, staff, parents and family members to stay informed in the event of an emergency situation. The service allows users to select what type of
information they wish to receive, and how they receive it. Currently, the notification options include e-mail, text messages, or land line phone options.
