Q. How do I get videos? top
A. Videos are available at all NWTC campus libraries and many public libraries. If the locations are not convenient for the student, we also have a mail out system which operates from the NWTC Library on the Green Bay campus (920-498-5493, 1-800-422-NWTC ext. 5493, or tcavideo@nwtc.edu). When requesting mailed videos, students should indicate their name, student ID number, the TCA course(s) they are taking, the lessons they need, and their preference for DVD or VHS (if applicable). NWTC does not charge to mail out videos, however return postage must be paid by the student.
