Jason - 08/09/2019

Northwest college is above my standards especially with the lack of equipment and large funding like regular universities. I believe their professors are knowledgeable in their expertise and they always try and make themselves available. Housing is awesome as well. They have a great staff that really cares about your well being and education.

Akasha - 04/08/2019

I've had an absolutely daunting time trying to get adjusted, but the whole team here at Northwest Indian College are so active in being support and help for each student.

MICHAEL - 03/16/2019

My major is actually Tribal Governance & Business Management, and I am only a few quarters away from graduating with my Bachelors Degree! I love the NWIC campus, but take most of my classes through their excellent Video Conferencing, distant learning classes. It is amazing that we can utilize technology to take classes anywhere and still have the classroom feel, interaction, and collaboration with other students. I have loved attending this college and it will be bittersweet when I graduate and move on to a Masters Degree. I would recommend NWIC to any student, but especially looking for an Associates or Bachelor Degree in business management, environmental science, or cultural sovereignty.

Jason - 01/04/2019

Northwest Indian College is a good school to attend. Being on the Lummi reservation gives a sense of being at home (if you're from a reservation). I also believe that the campus atmosphere is welcoming and the university staff is willing to help and assist all students.

Northwest Indian College FAQS

    The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Northwest Indian College is 100%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    If I was able to go back in time and give myself advice as a senior in high school, I would tell myself that education is important in life and it's easy if you put your mind to it. I know that it may seem like it's a waste of time but if you further your education you can achieve your goals and become anything that you want to be and do what ever you want to do as a career. All you have to do is study the career by going to a school where they offer the program and graduating. High school is going to go by quickly, four years may seem like a long time but it's going to pass by as if it were months. It's hard being in foster care so far away from your family but you should be focusing on school. School will always be provided to you and there are ways to pay for college if you don't have the money. People will help you and all you have to do is try. You have a lot of potential, everything will fall in place along the way.
