Career-tech programs essential to economy

Career and technical education (CTE) is not only vital to closing the skills gap seen on a major scale by many of the country’s top employers, it has become more apparent than ever just how “essential” the many essential workers who are products of this education are as the nation has grappled with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Community college a smart choice for fall

Community colleges allow young students to stay close to home and ease into their newfound  independence while still providing students with a quality education. Additionally, studies have shown that students who go to community colleges typically take out fewer loans and perform as well or better than those who begin their education at a university.


Registration is now open for Fall 2020! If you are a current student, you may register through your myNWCC account! Please select the FALL 2020 term on the Registration option under Scheduling.
