The Admission Process

Northwest Community College is prepared to admit individuals with any level of educational qualification. In some instances, students must meet individual course or program prerequisites. Students may enroll in those courses for which they meet the prerequisites while working to complete prerequisites of other courses in their program.

Students are admitted on a "first come, first qualified, first admitted" basis. College admission procedures ensure equal opportunity of access to programs for students who have the academic qualifications required by the program and are able to begin studies when space is available.
