Talk to an Institutional Aid Representative to Learn About Institutional Grants and Other Options
At Northwest Suburban College (NWSC), we believe no student should be denied an education due to lack of financial resources. Our Institutional Aid Representatives are always on hand to sit down with you and discuss your funding options, to create a plan that works for you.
Although the cost of a college education at NWSC is relatively low, many students still rely on institutional aid. NWSC offers institutional grant assistance and other opportunities, such as no-interest loans and payment plans. Talk with an Institutional Aid Representative to learn how you can make your education goals a reality.
Attending NWSC costs significantly less than at many other for-profit institutions. Click the dropdown menu to view tuition and fees per program:
Need-based institutional grants are awarded to deserving certificate program students. NWSC offers need-based grants in the form of a tuition waiver based on student income and financial need. Please contact our Institutional Aid Office for further information on student eligibility, availability of need-based grants, and for an institutional grant application.
Generally, this aid does not need to be repaid. Exceptions may apply for students withdrawing from a program, where the grant converts to loan and requires payment.
Installing Financing Plan
Students can finance their tuition and miscellaneous fee under 6, 9, 12, 15, 18 or 24 month Installment Financing Plans (IFP) administered by Tuition Financing Corporation (TFC). Students signing up under the NWSC-TFC IFP will be responsible for a monthly charge which includes:
- a zero-interest, principal-only monthly payment based on the total financed tuition spread over the chosen IFP period
- a monthly charge of $10 for the duration of the IFP to cover TFC’s administrative fee
- Credit Card Processing Fees for any student payments made via credit card.
