Tuition, fees, and any special fees must be paid on or before the due date noted on the payment screen when registering online, unless financial aid has been approved. Students failing to pay amounts due to NIC could be canceled from classes and have their credits withheld. No student will be given a transcript of his/her record or allowed to register for classes until all accounts are settled in full. This includes any funds received through the Financial Aid Office involving over-payments, refunds, or delinquent loans.
Payment of regular student fees entitles the student to the services maintained by NIC for the benefit of students. No reduction in fees can be made for students who may not desire to use any part of these services. Extra charges are made for special services and specific courses.
Students eligible for financial aid, but who have not completed the process prior to registration, will be expected to pay all required charges on or before the due date.
Veterans and eligible persons receiving Veterans Administration educational benefits must pay all required charges at the time of registration. Those who are depending on veterans educational benefit checks to pay fees must apply for advance pay at least one month prior to registration.
Tuition and fees are established anually by the NIC Board of Trustees. Interested persons may inquire at the Admissions Office for applicable rates and payment information. NIC reserves the right at any time to change its charges. In the unlikely event that such changes become necessary, NIC will endeavor to give advance notice.
