2015-2016 Tuition

The Wisconsin Technical College System Board has not yet set the tuition rate for the 2015-16 school year.

Students are responsible for payment of course fees and tuition for all courses they are enrolled.  If a student chooses not to attend a class or ceases to attend class, the student will need to notify the NTC Records and Registration Office to officially drop the class and to receive a refund.  The amount of refund will depend on the date the course is dropped. Also see Refund Policy for more information.
