Whether you are a new or returning student, we are delighted and honored you have chosen NWIC in pursing your education. NWIC offers an exceptional learning environment in which students gain the knowledge and skills they need to be leaders in their communities.

Please know that my door is open. If you want to talk with me individually I would be happy to meet. Please just let me know or contact my assistant, Jessica Solomon (see contact information to the right). Your input matters and it helps me do my job better.

Prepare for College
College Prep offered at NWIC
Northwest Indian College wants to help prepare you for college! We are offering an introductory, interactive, and engaging course that walks you through every step of the process of becoming a college student from interest to enrollment at NWIC. We know that this may be the first time you’ve thought about college and it’s overwhelming. It may have been a long time since you’ve graduated high school, or maybe you just got your diploma or GED. Whatever the case is, this Canvas page is designed to help answer some of your questions and guide you through the process of becoming an NWIC student! Start the course at any point in preparation for college. For every module you complete, you’ll earn a Continuing Education Unit (CEU).
