North Idaho College’s fine arts program was ranked No. 38 in the United States out of all two-year colleges by Accredited Schools Online recently. NIC was cited for its degree transferability and its ability to tailor programs to meet student need, among other attributes.

“I am very proud of the Art students, faculty and program for achieving this national distinction. Our faculty are talented, practicing artists as well as dedicated educators.  They've worked hard to create a top-notch program that promotes student success and educational excellence,” said Sherry Simkins, NIC Communication and Fine Arts chair. “We are looking forward to building on this legacy.”
