NTC takes part in pilot program offering free tuition for qualified students


BEMIDJI -- A pilot program through the Minnesota Office of Higher Education is offering qualifying students entering Northwest Technical College this fall an opportunity to receive their education for free.

MnSCU’s Two-Year Occupational Grant Pilot Program provides financial help to students enrolled in qualifying career and technical programs at two-year colleges in Minnesota. The program is intended to help students complete programs in two years or less, and find jobs in high-demand occupations, a release said. The Minnesota Legislature has voted to fund the pilot program for the next two academic years.

NTC has nearly 70 academic programs that are eligible for the program. A complete list of eligible programs is available on the Office of Higher Education website.
