What Students Are Saying

I loved the students and staff because of support and comfort. I did not like the online book store and Tulalips Tribes mail system. Some in the beginning of registration, I would be late to register because of the wrong classes for degree program.

Northwest Indian College is great for students who are looking to learn more about their heritage. It is also a great school for Natives looking to get an education that they can use in their tribes. Lastly is great for students who like smaller classrooms.
