2019-2020 University Catalog

Multnomah University is a diverse learning community that equips students to love God and their neighbor through their lives and careers.  Teaching you how to embrace Christ's love, to pursue biblical wisdom, to humbly serve others and to prepare for the career paths of your dreams lie at the center of our educational experience.

It isn't simply about earning a degree; it is about developing as a person who can contribute to God's kingdom and the welfare of others.

This catalog provides an essential tool to navigate academic practices, policies and procedures at Multnomah University.  Take some time and browse the contents so you can know what direction to turn when you become uncertain about how to handle the academic system.

Questions will arise that this catalog can't address, so, please seek help when needed.  When you reach out, you will experience the personal touch and a community that embraces you. Our faculty, staff and administrative team are dedicated to helping you accomplish your life, career and educational goals.

You will need to work diligently; however, you will not labor alone.  We journey together.

I pray that you deeply encounter God while in our learning community.  Whether in the online classroom or classrooms located at our Portland or Reno campus, I hope your journey with us equips you to love God and your neighbor through your lives and careers.

Dr. Craig Williford, President
