Student Travel

Travel Policy

Before travel, students will complete an Attendance & Satisfactory Progress Verification form with each of their instructors. By signing this form, the student verifies they are in good academic standing with NWIC, have no outstanding Incomplete grades, have a G.P.A. of 2.0 or better, and are currently passing all courses with a ‘C’ or better.

In accordance with the NWIC drug and alcohol free campus policy students will complete an Acknowledgement of Responsibility agreement. The students will agree to abstain from and not be in the presence of all drugs and alcohol while representing the college. The students will conduct themselves in the utmost respectful manner and will be held to the student conduct code (NWIC 2014-2015 Student Handbook) during travel. Any student who violates the drug and alcohol free policy or acknowledgment of responsibility will be sent home immediately while on travel. By signing the acknowledgments of responsibility, students understand that there are sanctions imposed that are a part of this policy, which the students agree to. The student in violation of this policy is responsible for the cost of any additional travel/per-diem expenses incurred as a result of the policy violation.

When leaving for a trip any student who fails to show up on time for the departure will forfeit their travel for that time period and will be responsible for any fees necessary to cancel/change travel arrangements and must return to campus or home. It is also the expectation that the student return the per-diem monies to the NWIC employee responsible for that trip.

Northwest Indian College is not responsible for any fees/costs incurred due to rescheduling of travel days/times or modes of transportation.  The individual student is responsible for these expenses. Per Diem or any travel advance funds are given at a set rate and shall be used only for purchasing meals. If a student misuses these funds, additional funds will not be provided.

To be eligible for travel, a student must have at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA.

Running start students are not eligible to travel on overnight trips. Northwest Indian College will not incur any additional travel fees for running start students.

All students  traveling for conferences, sports activities or other events are required to complete these forms prior to travel.
