I am delighted that you have chosen to visit the website for Northwest Louisiana Technical Community College. Our website will be evolving over the next several months in order to better serve our students, faculty, staff, and community partners throughout Northwest Louisiana. I encourage you to revisit often in order to witness this evolution for yourself. Whether you are a high school student or a recent graduate, a returning student or a degree holder seeking new skills or training, Northwest can provide you an opportunity to achieve your goals.
The vision at Northwest is to become a state, national, and world leader in high-quality career and technical education.

We serve the nine parishes of the northwest Louisiana region with campuses in Mansfield, Minden, and Shreveport. We also have instructional centers at Camp Minden, Caddo Correctional Center, and David Wade Correctional Center.
Northwest is doing what it was created to do… it is efficiently and effectively working with other educational institutions, in partnership with business and industry to serve the workforce needs of Northwest Louisiana. Workforce development is not a hobby for us… it’s what we do every single day. Our 50+ curricular offerings prepare students for the world of work in high wage, high skill, and high demand fields.
