NWIC Offers Six Extended Campus Locations

Northwest Indian College is committed to serving the educational needs of Tribal communities throughout the Pacific Northwest. This is accomplished by working cooperatively with Muckleshoot, Nez Perce, Nisqually, Port Gamble, Swinomish and Tulalip Tribal communities to sponsor classes and programs of particular relevance to them.

Instructional programming encompasses formal bachelor’s degrees, associate’s degrees, and certificate programs in several areas. In addition, other classes are offered, such as cultural, vocational/work force training, recreational, adult education, in-service seminars, and other special programming.

Interest is particularly strong at many instructional sites in classes focusing on the cultural traditions and Indigenous knowledge of the Tribal communities. A variety of delivery methods are employed to teach classes. Methods of instructional delivery include onsite teaching using local instructors, Interactive Telecourses (ITV), Learning Contracts (LC), Independent Learning (IL), Video Conferencing (VC), and Online Courses (OL).

Student support and enrollment services are provided to extended campus sites by professional staff located at the main Lummi Campus and at various sites. Students may contact the Lummi Campus to request information and assistance with admissions, financial aid, registration, advisement, career services, and other areas of interest. At selected sites, the College retains staff or a contact person for these purposes.
