Your son or daughter will soon complete their first year of college. What should you expect regarding billing and notification of payment deadlines for the future?
You may have noticed that you, the parent, did not receive a bill for the semester. Students may view their statement by using MyNIC. If the student would like a paper bill they may print one off of their MyNIC or request one in writing to the Student Accounts Office. A request and a copy of the student's ID may be emailed or faxed to the Student Accounts Office and we will mail the statement to the address on record.
When classes are in session, all correspondence is mailed to the students’ local address. Students need to take an active role in understanding their financial responsibility and to stay informed at all times of their current status and future registrations. We want you to assist them as needed, but it’s important to let them learn how to deal with financial responsibilities and meeting any deadlines.
North Idaho College adheres to the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), that provides students with privacy rights pertaining to their educational records. Certain information may only be accessed by the student. Security measures are in place to ensure that student privacy rights are protected.
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education. Official student records may be kept in six offices: Registrar, Academic Support Services, Student Accounts Office, Financial Aid, Residence Hall and Health Services. Information on students, therefore, may be two general kinds: academic (registered attendance, courses taken, probation or suspension, grades, degree programs), and personal (financial statement, age, address, telephone #, disciplinary, and medical records).
