Northwest College

President's Welcome

Northwest College President Lisa Watson

Welcome to Northwest College and the home of the Trappers! For 75 years—and counting—Northwest College has combined quality academic programs, exceptional student service, and a memorable campus experience, all in one of the most beautiful regions of the Rocky Mountain West at the gateway of Yellowstone National Park. Everyone's life journey is different, and we understand that. As a future Trapper, whether you are fresh out of high school or looking to get back after some time away, our talented faculty and staff are relentlessly committed to your success.

Your time with us will be rewarding, both academically and personally, and no one takes that more seriously than the dedicated folks at NWC. Your success is our success! Here you can count on a strong support system of faculty, staff, and your peers to encourage and empower you with the skills to reach toward a future that may have seemed out of reach in the past. We are always proud to hear from countless alumni who look back fondly on their memories at Northwest College and describe their time at Northwest College as life-changing.

At NWC, our educational programs are designed for students interested in obtaining a two or four-year degree or wishing to enter directly into the workforce. Whichever path you choose, we can provide the skills necessary to guide you on the trail to success. It's easy to find a college, but it's harder to find a college that’s the right fit for you.

To get a feel for our campus, visit NWC on the web at or on Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and Facebook. Or better yet, see it for yourself by scheduling a campus visit.

Trapper Nation welcomes you!

Lisa Watson
