Welcome to Advising Services!

Advising Services is committed to providing academic advising to all undergraduate students, including prospective students, at North Idaho College. Through the advising process, students will: be assisted with clarifying their personal and educational goals; learn educational options available at North Idaho College; select an educational plan consistent with their abilities, skills, interests, and goals; and learn of resources available to assist them with being successful students.

Current Student? Be sure to contact your advisor who is assigned to you. This information can be found on your MyNIC account, under Academic Profile.
