Enrollment

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Enrollment Services office is operating remotely. We are communicating primarily via email. Please email us at enrollmentservices@nwic.edu if you have any questions or need assistance.  Please email us to schedule a phone call or Zoom appointment. Appointments can be made Monday-Friday 8am-5pm.

Northwest Indian College’s primary focus is on recruiting Native American and First Nations (Canadian) students but follows an “open door” admissions policy. Anyone who is 18 years of age or older and who has graduated from high school or completed a GED may enroll. Students who are between the ages of 16 and 18, who have completed a high school diploma or GED, must obtain permission from their school district before enrolling for college or high school level courses. Students 16 years of age and older are eligible to enroll in Continuing Education (CEU) courses. Students who are not prepared to begin college level courses are provided with a wide variety of developmental course work designed to enable them to prepare for more advanced study and to pursue programs suited to their interests and aptitude.

*Please note that all of the programs of study currently available at Northwest Indian College are listed on the Degrees and Certificates webpage.

 If you have any questions please contact the Enrollment Office at enrollmentservices@nwic.edu.

Grading During COVID-19

In order to help support students through this pandemic, students may request the option of an S/U grade from their instructor for each class they are enrolled in. This is effective for Spring 2020 and Summer 2020. This information is also noted on student’s transcripts for each of these quarters.

It is highly recommended that a student consult with both their instructor and advisor before requesting this type of grading. Faculty have the choice in whether or not to offer this type of grading for their individual class or students.

GPA Impact: The S/U grade does not have any impact on cumulative or quarterly GPA.
Credits Earned: A grade of S will result in an earned credit for the class and count towards graduation requirements. A grade of U will not count towards any earned credit and may need to be repeated.
Final Grading: All grades submitted are considered final. Grades will not be changed unless they adhere to our grade change policy.

Graduation

If you are close to degree completion and plan to have all of the requirements of your program of study completed within 3 quarters or less, all students will need to complete a graduation application electronically. To do this, please sign into your JICS account and follow the directions in the Graduation Application link that can be located under the Academics tab. There is a $10 fee applied to your student account to apply for graduation.

Once you submit an application for graduation, an official evaluation of your transcripts by the Registrar will occur and you will be notified by email of your remaining requirements for your program of study.

Students who are applying for an award of completion, must complete the paper-based graduation application for Awards of Completion and email to enrollmentservices@nwic.edu.   

If you have follow up questions regarding an application, please email enrollmentservices@nwic.edu
