Dr. Gary Lee Spears

I’m so happy you decided to visit our website!

On behalf of our staff, faculty, administration and Board of Trustees, I’d like to welcome you to our official website and encourage you to take a look at all Northwest has to offer.

Northwest offers the first two years of your four-year education or the technical skills you will need for the workforce. Through our accredited academic pathways and career-technical programs, flexible class schedules and affordable tuition, our students get ready to transfer to a four-year college or university or to enter the workforce in an exciting career.

On the website, you’ll find information about our programs of study, financial aid, housing, student activities, athletics, scholarship opportunities and much, much more. In my many years with this college, I’ve seen great changes in technology, classroom delivery, the student population and the addition of many new programs. But what remains constant is that Northwest and all of our Mississippi community colleges still provide our students an affordable and accessible higher education opportunity.

Here at Northwest, we strive to grow with the times, so we are constantly working to improve how we can best meet our students’ needs.

Come by our main campus in Senatobia, DeSoto Center in Southaven/Olive Branch or Lafayette-Yalobusha Technical Center in Oxford for a tour of our facilities or to speak to a faculty adviser to learn how you can become a part of the Northwest family.

See for yourself why success starts at Northwest! Go Rangers!
