 Graduate Success and Job Outlook

The Graduate Follow-up Report shows how graduates of each degree and diploma program are succeeding in the workforce. Every year, NWTC contacts our most recent graduates to ask about their employment. We publish the (anonymous) results with pay rates and job placement for each program.
