Our Mission:  The North Idaho College Center for Educational Access (CEA), in partnership with college and community resources and in full compliance with applicable law, is committed to ensuring that students with documented disabilities are able to fully participate in academic programs, services, and activities.  CEA also works towards building and supporting an academic community whose members have diverse cultures, backgrounds, and life experiences.  In this way, CEA supports student success through their pursuit of lifelong learning and further works to help uphold and maintain the dignity and well-being of all students.


Are you a new student and need to know how to get started?

The North Idaho College Center for Educational Access (CEA) facilitates reasonable accommodations and services for students with qualifying disabilities at NIC and at the North Idaho Consortium of Higher Education campuses of Boise State University, Lewis and Clark State College, and the Idaho State University in the Northern Idaho region.

CEA services are designed to support you throughout your academic career.  Please contact our office and we will discuss what services and assistive technology might be available to you, how disability and eligibility determination is made, how accommodations are identified and implemented, and your rights and responsibilities.

Also, if you are a Dual Credit student, parent or family member, high school teacher or counselor and are interested in the differences between disability services in a high school compared to a college setting, be sure to select the "Dual Credit/Students/High School Counselor/Parents" link to the right.

CEA is made up of trained and caring staff and we look forward to working with you!
