North Idaho College Passport Block

The Passport Block listed here is for general information only. Students must see the institution's website for access to its official block.

PASSPORT BLOCK OVERVIEW

The North Idaho College Passport aligns with the approved Idaho Statewide General Education policy III.N. on General Education requirements (GEM) at all public higher education institutions in Idaho. Faculty at North Idaho College aligned the Passport Learning Outcomes (PLOs) to the statewide General Education Matriculation (GEM) competencies. Students earning a Passport at NIC will also earn their General Education Academic Certificate; however, the Passport is more restrictive, so students earning a General Education certificate will not necessarily earn a Passport.
