Northwest Indian College will offer 50% off tuition via a tuition waiver for the upcoming Winter quarter as classes will continue to be offered virtually. New, returning, continuing, and transferring students are eligible for the tuition waiver.  Each student will save an average of $700 on tuition for Winter Quarter 2020.

In addition, NWIC College officials announce a $500 scholarship for the current Fall quarter. These moves are supported by CARES Act funding to give students extra support during COVID.

“During the COVID-19 pandemic, NWIC wants to ensure that our students have the means necessary to continue their education. This act of generosity on behalf of NWIC demonstrates that we care about our students and our community,” Dean of Students Victoria Retasket said.

Registration for Winter begins November 09. For more information, visit nwic.edu.

NWIC is an accredited four-year college, and the only Tribal college in the region.  Located at the Lummi Nation near Bellingham WA, NWIC also operates six full-service sites at reservations in Washington and Idaho. The College’s student body is represented by over 130 Tribes from across the country.
