At the current published rates, an estimated total tuition, fees and living expense price for a 2 year associate degree at NWTC is $34,344 for students graduating in normal time. This methodology for estimating the 2 year cost is a straight multiple of the most recent reported annual total cost and does not factor in tuition increases during the time you're in school. It also assumes you receive no grant or scholarship aid and pay the full list price.

A potentially more accurate but less conservative estimate of a degree cost can be made by using the school's annual $7,744 in-state net price as the basis. Applying this cost over 2 would estimate the cost of a degree at $15,488**

If you're considering attending Northeast Wisconsin Technical College, you need to carefully consider if it will be realistic to make the post graduation loan payments based on your expected salary.
