The Student Achievement Measure is supported by six sponsoring associations, working together to provide a more comprehensive and accurate picture of student progress and completion as students move across institutions and state boundaries.

Northwest Missouri State University

Northwest Missouri State University focuses on student success - every student, every day.

Northwest offers 135 undergraduate programs and 36 graduate's programs. The Business, Education, Geography and Agriculture departments graduate the largest number of students each year.
