Rental of your primary textbooks is included in your tuition and fees. This means that Northwest students, on average, save $1,168 a year over students at other universities. Over four years, that's almost $4,700 that stays in your pocket. It also saves students the time and hassle of having to find, buy and resell textbooks.
Full-time undergraduate (at least 12 credit hours) and graduate students (at least 9 credit hours) will also receive a laptop to use while studying at Northwest. The laptops come fully loaded with all of the software you need to be a successful student, including Microsoft Office. This helps create a level playing field, as all students will have the tools they need to complete assignments.
