Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.77 Average Rating
This school is great for the money, especially if you live in state. The tuition is affordable and there is usually no need for loans especially if you recieve the hathaway or trapper scholarships.
Justin from Powell, WY
Definitely. It's the cheapest school I've found and I am confident that I'm getting as good of an education as all the other kids I knew that went to the University of Wyoming. And I'm not a decade in debt.

The low cost of attendance at NWC had me suspicious at first, but for the most part there hasn't been anything to be worried about. The food is surprisingly good, although with the cafeteria hours, you sometimes waste part of your meal plan since the dining hall closes at 6 PM. The residence halls are nice, though, as are the facilities around campus. Equine students will also enjoy the fact that the cost of being in the equine program covers food, bedding, board, farrier costs, and basic vet care all for a relatively low price.
Lorren from Powell, WY
Northwest College is known for being one of the cheapest colleges in the country. Also, prices in the bookstore and the Seventh Street Grille are quite reasonable. This is a great institution, and students do not sacrifice anything because of the low costs of schooling at Northwest College.
Taylor from Kaysville, UT
Northwest is a very affordable school even for those paying out of state tuition.
