A student budget is an estimate of student need during a nine-month school year, based on a student survey and budgets at similar schools. Several basic budgets are used, based on whether you are living with your parents or living on your own. Each budget is designed to provide a modest but adequate lifestyle. The full-time budgets below are based on state norms will be used by NWIC during the 2020-2021 academic year. Resident/Non-Resident tuition rates are defined in the catalog and can be found in the Tuition section of the Admissions webpage here. To estimate your costs, please see the Net Price Calculator.
Student budgets are pro-rated for students attending less than full time (12 credits per) quarter. Tuition and fees are subject to change.
Students are not able to receive need-based grants and scholarships in excess of their budget. If a budget adjustment is needed, please complete a Budget Modification Request available on JICS under Financial Aid.
