Hello and Greetings from NWHC!

I am excited about the future of the Northwest Houston Center and its contributions to the higher education space in Northwest Houston. If you are looking to improve your career and future job prospects, or simply interested in completing a degree or participate in non-degree continuing education programs, this is the right place.

Residents of Northwest Houston can find a number of high quality, nationally accredited graduate and undergraduate programs offered in a student friendly setting. We offer a number of complete degree programs on this campus – education, business, nursing and architecture. In addition to the graduate programs, several bachelor’s programs are currently being offered – business, the arts and sciences and nursing and architecture. Classes are offered in the evenings each week day for traditional classroom delivery and on Saturdays and online for the hybrid method.

Students are able to meet all of their academic needs in one place. As a result, we are developing a full-service student transfer center with representatives from the admissions, the registrar’s office, financial aid, academic advisors. Students will have access to personnel dedicated to assisting them with their matriculation. Additionally, special scholarships designed for transfer students, and for students who would take courses on the NWHC campus. Check us out. I think you will be pleased.

We are working with a number of partners including the Lone Star Community College system (Cy-Fair, Tomball) and other partners to admit cohorts of students interested in completing a four-year degree in any of these areas. If interested in any of these programs, or another program that we should consider offering, I would love to hear from you. You may contact me at or Dr. Rahim Quazi, the Center’s associate director, at or call 713-790-7286. Additionally, a member of our staff is available from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Monday through Thursday.

I look forward to hearing from you.
Tyrone Tanner, Ed.D
