What's a Community College?
Community colleges are two-year institutions that award associate degrees upon completion of a 2-year program of study. There are more than 1,100 two-year institutions in the United States, serving more than 10 million students. Earning an associates degree allows students to
- Transfer to a 4-year college or university to obtain a bachelor's degree, usually after 2 additional years of study.
- Begin a career immediately in any on of hundreds of fields that do not require a 4-year, bachelor's degree.
- Save a significant amount of money by completing your first two years of study at a more affordable institution.
Join the students who come to Northwest College to begin or continue their educational career, improve their English proficiency, and to learn about American culture.
We look forward to meeting you!
