Northwest Indian College’s primary focus is on recruiting Native American and First Nations (Canadian) students but follows an “open door” admissions policy. Anyone who is 18 years of age or older and who has graduated from high school or completed a GED may enroll. Students who are between the ages of 16 and 18, who have completed a high school diploma or GED, must obtain permission from their school district before enrolling for college or high school level courses. Students 16 years of age and older are eligible to enroll in Continuing Education (CEU) courses. Students who are not prepared to begin college level courses are provided with a wide variety of developmental course work designed to enable them to prepare for more advanced study and to pursue programs suited to their interests and aptitude.

*Please note that all of the programs of study currently available at Northwest Indian College are listed on the Degrees and Certificates webpage.

*As of July 1, 2015, students are REQUIRED to submit a copy of a high school diploma or GED before their application is considered accepted.
