*Dual Credit Academic application submissions are now concluded for the 2020/2021 school year. We will be accepting applications for next year starting April 2021. 

 

All NIC Courses for the 2020/2021 school year will be Digital Delivery either Scheduled (set time online with instructor teaching) or Unscheduled (online course where you can ask to meet with the teacher online). 

 

*Students may take any course at NIC as long as they meet the pre-requisites and the courses align with the students' career interests. Our goal is to support students as they transition into their next steps in life and gain knowledge and skills that support them transitioning into post secondary. 

 

Below are some courses that students may want to take. These courses are transferable to most other institutions and are commonly required for a student's first year at college /university.
