A Salute to you, Student Veteran!

Welcome to Northwest Kansas Technical College! I want to extend a special welcome to you.

Each year the enrollment of men and woman with prior military experience continues to grow on this campus. Veterans enjoy the college because they know that with the kind of dedication, commitment, and self discipline they embraced in the military, combined with learning from outstanding instructors and relevant programs, that they will graduate from Northwest Tech with the high-tech skills necessary to help them find outstanding, high wage, careers in the workforce.

On behalf of the faculty, staff, and students here, we want you to know how honored we are that you’ve chosen to join us. We believe Northwest Tech is the finest two-year college on the high plains!


Our team is ready to help you at any time. If you have questions or concerns regarding your education at Northwest Tech, don’t hesitate to ask for assistance. We are here to serve you in the same professional way that you served this great nation.
