Our Student Rights and Responsibilities and our Student Code of Conduct provide the overview of the expectations of NWCCD students. Several other policies and procedures are also used to guide our students through to completion. The Student Services Policies & Procedures address financial aid and payments, residential life, registration and records, and many, many more.
Student Learning & Engagement
The Division of Student Affairs provides opportunities to engage students in learning outside the classroom through student employment, student organizations, recreation activities and intercollegiate athletics.
Our engagement opportunities help students work effectively on a team by developing their intercultural understanding and instilling the NWCCD Core Abilities of critical thinking, communication, and knowledge acquisition. Student learning and development is measured through student employment evaluations, end-of-season assessment for student athletes, and self-reflection exercises for students in leadership positions.
