President's Welcome


Welcome to Northwest College! Now that you’ve discovered us, it won’t take long for you to see why this place is so special. At NWC, we know everyone’s academic journey is unique. No matter what path you take to earn your degree, our talented faculty and staff are relentlessly committed to helping you get there.

From the moment you set foot on campus, we’re here to help you reach your most ambitious goals: to become innovators, problem solvers and leaders who embrace challenge in a fast-paced, ever-changing world. Indeed, we’re far more than your typical two-year college—take a look at the following, and see how NWC is truly one of a kind.

Location: No matter your major, you’ll have educational opportunities outside the classroom like exploring Yellowstone National Park, discovering what’s just beneath the surface of nearby archaeological sites, practicing your leadership skills on the ropes course at our Mickelson Field Station, plus many others.

Quality: At NWC, you’re not just a number. During your academic experience, you’ll receive one-one-one support from faculty who know you by name and care about your success. With 48 transfer degrees, 18 technical degrees and 19 certificates to choose from, you’ll receive quality, hands-on instruction in your field to prepare you to launch your future in a career field of your choice with confidence.

Value/Affordability: With our low tuition costs, many Northwest College students are eligible to earn their degree at little or no cost to them. Plus, 94% of our students receive grants or scholarships from NWC to help lift the financial burden that often comes with paying for college.

Experience: We know that the end-goal of earning your degree is just as important as the journey to getting there. During your time here, you’ll make memories, friendships, and connections that last a lifetime. At NWC, you can count on a strong support system of faculty, staff, and your peers, who are ready to help you shine in our campus community. To get a feel for life on campus, visit NWC on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.

Our virtual walking tour is a great place to begin your exploration of Northwest College. If we seem like a good fit, I encourage you to call, email, or create an account to request more information. But the best way to really get to know campus is to see it for yourself by scheduling a campus visit. Our doors are always open, and I look forward to welcoming you to the NWC family.

Go Trappers!
