We are honored to serve the students who represent their families and their Tribes when they walk through our doors.


At Northwest Indian College the student body is a diverse group — working adults, young athletes, parents and grandparents, students entering college for the first time or their second, third or more. We pride ourselves in meeting our students where they are at in their educational journey. However, increasing numbers of traditional college age students are enrolling right out of high school. Over 75 percent of our students come from a federally-recognized Indian Tribes and we represent over 100 different Tribal Nations. Northwest Indian College proudly serves over 1,000 students annually.

At Northwest Indian College, we not only offer quality learning at an affordable cost but also the skills to achieve a balanced education through our philosophy of promoting Indigenous self-determination and knowledge. It is this philosophy that lends to our daily practices and dedication to student success.

Our student-oriented approach is evident in all we do: classroom learning, extra and co-curricular experiences, internships, research, and community outreach. Our investment in students is reflected in our graduates who are leaders in their fields and highly prized by employers. Student success is our highest priority.

As a student at Northwest Indian College, it is important that you understand you are a part of our family and that the Center for Student Success will make our best efforts to ensure you succeed, so that you may provide for yourself, your family, and your community. I encourage you to become involved in clubs, organizations, student government, and service-learning opportunities so that you may make the most of your college experience.

Accommodations for Students

Contact Information

Dean of Students

For Students

At Northwest Indian College, providing equal opportunities for students who experience disabilities is a campus-wide responsibility and commitment. Academic and Student Support services are an integral part of equalizing the post-secondary environment for students who experience disabilities.

NWIC is committed to providing students with disabilities equal opportunities to benefit from all College services, programs, and activities. We comply with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act.

For Faculty

To ensure that all qualified individuals with disabilities receive the information and resources they need, all department chairs, faculty members, and academic advisors must refer any individual who requests an accommodation to the Dean of Students. All referrals, even if initially made verbally, must be followed up in writing.

Referring a Student for Accommodations

Did You Know?

Accommodations can be temporary or long-term. During the COVID-19 pandemic, students are eligible for temporary accommodations due to potential virus impact with a doctor’s note.

You can contact the Dean of Students for info on out-of-classroom accommodations.

Student Complaints and Grievances

Complaints and Grievances Procedure

NWIC will ensure that student grievances are processed and responded to in a timely way and properly tracked through a uniform procedure outlined in this policy. This uniform procedure will be used by NWIC administration, faculty and staff to accept and process student-initiated grievances.

Students at NWIC are guaranteed rights that are outlined under the Student Rights and Responsibilities code. If a student feels that his or her student rights have been compromised or violated, the student has the right to file a formal complaint, known as a grievance, in an effort to resolve the issue.

This policy applies to students enrolled at Northwest Indian College. It covers issues arising from a student’s current or past involvement with the college. The student grievance procedure may not be used to address allegations of discrimination, including sexual harassment, when a student believes that he/she has been discriminated against due to his/her race, creed, religion, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, disability, veteran status, or national origin, the College’s Discrimination and Harassment Policy is a mechanism for resolution, which can be found in the student handbook.

Grievance: A grievance is a formal written complaint signed by a student and received by the appropriate office. The following procedure provides the steps for a student to file a grievance about the conduct of a faculty member, other NWIC employee, student, or matter unrelated to academic decisions.

Not Allowable for Grievance: A student may not use this grievance process to respond to the outcome of disciplinary proceedings described in the Student Rights and Responsibilities code. Federal, local and tribal laws, rules and regulations, in addition to policies, regulations, and procedures adopted by the Lummi Nation shall not be grieve-able matters.

Informal Complaints
Other issues not contained in the Student Rights and Responsibilities code may be addressed through an informal complaint to be submitted by a student on the Informal Complaint Form. Examples may include, but not be limited to, a complaint about food in the residence cafeteria or a procedure followed by the Center for Student Success.

Informal Resolution
When a student has a grievance, the student shall first discuss the matter with the individual toward whom the grievance is directed, unless there are good reasons for not doing so, such as a desire to maintain anonymity with the involved party. If the student feels the matter has not been resolved in this step, he or she may proceed to official grievance procedures.

Step 1: The student shall submit a written grievance statement within five (5) working days of the alleged grievance to the individual’s immediate supervisor. See Student Grievance Form and NWIC Organizational Chart. The review of the written statement must take place and a written response delivered to the student within five (5) working days of receipt of the written grievance statement. If the student is not satisfied with the written response, the student may proceed to Step 2.

Step 2: The student shall submit a written grievance statement within five (5) working days to the Dean of Students or the Dean Academics. The student shall meet with the Dean and present evidence related to the grievance. This meeting is to take place and a written decision delivered to the student within five (5) working days of receipt of the written grievance statement. If the student is not satisfied with the written response, the student may proceed to Step 3.

Step 3: The student shall submit an appeal to the Vice President of Instruction and Student Services within five (5) working days of receipt of the Step 2 written response.

1. All applicable records, documents, and letters must be submitted to the Vice President of Instruction and Student Services’ Office for review.

2. At his/her discretion, the Vice President may review the appeal documentation and make a final decision.

3. The grievant and respondent will be notified in writing within five (5) days of receiving the appeal. The decision of the Vice President shall be final.

It is a student’s obligation to adhere to the timeframe stated above. Failure to adhere to these time frames will result in a delay in resolving the grievance. A student may withdraw his/her grievance or appeal at any step. This process shall be adjusted according to unique circumstances as determined by a Dean.

Record Keeping
If a student complaint is not resolved in the first two steps of the Student Grievance Procedure and reaches either the Dean of Student Life or the Dean of Academics and Distance Learning, that office will keep a single record of the student complaint and all related documentation. Records related to student grievances are maintained in the student’s file in accordance with FERPA guidelines. The Dean of Students shall maintain a log to track and aggregate student complaint information and the disposition of complaints so that NWIC can study patterns of complaints to determine whether improvements may be appropriate. An annual report will be compiled and disseminated at the end of the academic year to the NWIC Leadership Team and Student Executive Board that outlines trends and the analysis of student complaints and grievances.

Northwest Indian College Advisors offer holistic and student-centered guidance, empowering students with practical knowledge and skills to support cultural identity, academic success, self-determination, and personal growth.

What We Do:
Academic advising is provided to students by:

  • Advisors in the Center for Student Success
  • Faculty Advisors in the academic program in which the faculty member teaches, or by
  • Site Managers at our instructional sites.

The academic advisor will work with students to enroll for courses and provide the necessary information to ensure adequate course selection for the student’s intended program of study. Advisors offer assistance to students in understanding degree requirements, planning schedules, and monitoring satisfactory academic progress.  Students should schedule appointments with their advisor to verify that courses they have selected apply to their degree program prior to quarterly registration. While appointments are not mandatory, they are strongly recommended, especially during busy registration times before the start of each quarter. Drop-in advising is always available to students on a first come, first serve basis.
