Program Supplies and Fees

Certain programs, specifically career or technical programs, may have additional costs such as uniforms, tools, supplies or equipment expenses. Total estimated program costs are available from the Admissions Office.

Total Cost of Attendance

A student's financial need is based on the total cost of attendance at NICC. In addition to defining financial need, the cost of attendance sets the limit on the total financial aid a student may receive. The cost components that can be included are prescribed by law.

Cost of attendance is an estimate based on average educational expenses you can incur while attending classes at NICC.
