Why Your Support Matters to Students

  • NWTC enrolls approximately 10,000 undergraduate students. However, only 34% of NWTC students attend college full-time, many for financial reasons.
  • 50% of students are low income level. 
  • 30% of students have children.
  • Over half of our surveyed students work more than 20 hours a week.

Community Impact

A key component to a healthy community is a high quality of life or standard of living. For many individuals and families, a career can be the direct link to that higher quality of life. NWTC’s goal is to provide learning opportunities for all students that will ensure the successful development and enhancement of a career that sustains family, community, business, and continuous personal growth.
