Student Life at NWIC

At Northwest Indian College the student body is a diverse group. The average student is a 29-year-old female with at least one dependent. However, increasing numbers of traditional college age students are enrolling right out of high school. Over 75 percent of our students come from a federally-recognized Indian tribe and we represent over 90 different tribal nations. Northwest Indian College proudly serves over 1,100 students annually.

Our student clubs consist of interest groups from Media, Art, Rockets, Grad School, and Pow Wow to Nationally recognized organizations such as AISES and AIBL, which allow our students opportunity for life experiences not found in a book or in the classroom. Students have the option to work within the communities in which they learn, and give back to their people in various ways.  

We are honored to serve the students, who represent their families and their tribes when they walk through our doors.
