About NWIC

Since 1973, Northwest Indian College has operated under the belief that higher education should be available to all Native Americans. The school prides itself on being the only accredited tribal college in the Pacific Northwest, and continually strives to improve and expand.
In its recent mission to become a university, Northwest Indian College has built several new facilities, including:

*NWIC Science Building
*Center for Student Success
*Early Learning Center
*Residential halls

Northwest Indian College’s academics currently include a variety of certificates, associate’s degrees and bachelor’s degrees. The college also offers continuing education courses, which are open to students of at least 16 years of age.

Due to its status as a tribal college, NWIC has somewhat unique admissions requirements. In addition to an application, the school requires proof of your tribal status. If you live on or near an Indian reservation, you’re also eligible for a tuition discount.

NWIC is committed to community education, particularly with regard to Pacific Northwest’s Native American tribes. The recently completed Cooperative Extension Office sponsors a number of outreach programs to provide educational opportunities to a variety of tribal cultures.

Student at This School - Grad Year 2011

Overall Rating

I have been to three colleges total, and Northwest Indian College has been the greatest so far. Northwest Indian College has the greatest support I've ever received from a college facility. By me just putting my self out there and getting to know my teachers i had received opportunities in internships that had changed my whole college experience as well as my career path. And through the internship i was offered other educational opportunities such as summer travel to Washington State University with the NOAA foundation. Where i had a life changing experience, which i loved. This school had the most support I've ever received from any other school so far. I am so grateful to have received a degree from this school, especially a transfer degree to begin my college career with great and wonderful support as well as connections which are needed for my up coming degree at Western Wash University and Washington State University.

Overall Rating

Well I'm a new student at NWIC. I've been here in the community for 7 years now and know a lot of people who attend NWIC, and they have nothing but good things to say about it. The environment and the teachers have been great so far. The students are very friendly and everyone seems to know everyone. I look forward to a good 4 years here at NWIC. As a prospective student I knew this was the school I wanted to attend without a question. And if you aren't the type of person who would rather be an independent student, NWIC offers independent classes as well.
