The possibility of a better life begins with higher education. Yet each year more students are struggling to make ends meet. Affordability has become a growing barrier to student success. Textbooks, supplies, housing, transportation, child care, and health care costs weigh heavily on our students minds resulting in working more hours and spending less time focusing on the necessary schoolwork. Every day, NWTC student are forced to abandon their pursuit of higher education because of financial hardships.
