Financial Aid Office


Welcome to the North Idaho College Financial Aid Office webpage. Our office is committed to assisting students in paying for their education while assuming as little debt as possible. As a result, we use creative ways to award student loans and leverage scholarship money.

Please review the links on the right hand side of the page for information on how to apply for financial aid and scholarships, what types of aid are offered, how to keep your financial aid, important information you need to know, deadlines, and any forms that are requested.
